It’s been just a couple of days since Car & Driver revealed Bentley is pondering upon offering a brand-new model, and the British manufacturer has already confirmed a fifth vehicle will join its lineup by the end of the decade. However, it seems the said car won’t be an entry-level coupe, as suggested by the initial report, but one that will slot between the Continental GT and the Mulsanne as far as pricing goes. What’s more, Bentley is still undecided whether this new vehicle will be a two-seat sports car or a coupe .

Speaking to Auto Express, Bentley CEO Wolfgang Durheimer confirmed the rumor, but added that the company won’t make a decision until the Bentley Falcon SUV gets launched toward the end of 2015. "Our designers are extremely busy right now preparing designs for each of them and we are preparing business cases. We will make the decision when we have more information," he said.

A concept car for each idea is likely to hit auto shows by 2016, as Bentley will be looking to gather public reaction and assess potential profits each of the two might bring. The new model, which will be the fifth offering in the company’s lineup, won’t arrive until 2018, Auto Express adds. A decision as to the brand-new Bentley will be a sports car or a coupe will be made by mid 2016.

The race-spec SRT Viper is already a successful track machine, having won many prestigious trophies since its introduction in 1996. The latest iteration of the race car, the GT3-R, has yet to reach the heights of its forerunners, but its recent success during the Detroit leg of the Pirelli World Challenge Series in May 2014 is proof enough that the Viper is headed in the right direction. More recently, the "Snake" developed by Riley Technologies made yet another step toward track glory by setting the fastest lap in the Ultimate Track Car Challenge.

The event took place on July 18th at Virginia International Raceway, where the SRT Viper GT3-R rendered its competitors obsolete. The race car, built by Riley Technologies and driven by American Le Mans Series ace Ben Keating, wasn’t shy about tackling the track at full throttle and set the fastest lap at 1:44.71. The Viper was quicker than a 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo and its benchmark would have been enough to earn it the pole position at last year’s American Le Mans Series on the same track.

The Ultimate Track Car Challenge is an annual event held by Grassroots Motorsports at Virginia International Raceway. The competition is open to any type of car, including classic vehicles , and its sole purpose is to find America’s fastest track cars. Hit play to watch the SRT Viper GT3-R in action as it reaches speeds of up to 171 mph.

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and apparently the driver in these two videos has love for bread and milk on a whole other level. Or perhaps he just needed an excuse to go drifting around town on what is normally a mundane grocery run.

The two videos include some pretty sweet gymkhana-style action around dirt roads, farms, and rock quarries. Not to spoil the fun, but the story line in both videos revolved around our hotshoe friend realizing he’s out of ingredients to make his girl a tasty breakfast. As the girl slowly realizes her Subaru -owning man isn’t in bed with her, she awakens and walks into the kitchen only to find him preparing a meal with the just-snatched ingredients.

Besides implying that owning a Subaru and hooning it like Ken Block will save your romantic relationship, the videos are extremely entertaining to watch. They may not be the most professionally shot videos in the world, but the content sure makes up for quality.

Above is the new2015 Subaru WRX STI hooning about and below the jump is the current Subaru BRZ doing its thing. Both are fun watches, so be sure to check them both out.

Dodge ’s highly anticipated facelift for the Challenger has finally arrived — a little late we might add — to give the pony a fresh start in the muscle car battle against its Detroit rivals.

Revamped inside and out, the Challenger stormed into New York with updated front and rear fascias, and new exterior colors and wheel designs. Sure, the facelift is not as spectacular as the one seen on the Charger , but it should be enough to keep the Challenger marketable until the next-generation model arrives.

Those who were looking forward to see some engine updates will end up a bit disappointed, as Dodge didn’t bother to offer extra oomph, and, apparently, the new Hellcat V-8 is not yet ready to make an entrance. However, the ancient five-speed automatic has finally been moved to the dustbin, making way for a more attractive unit.

The new Challenger comes just as Dodge is celebrating its 100th anniversary, and the muscle car will certainly be a part of this summer’s merrymaking. We bet something special is coming our way, but, until them, let’s take a deep dive into the 2015 Challenger.

Updated 07/16/2014: Dodge officially announced prices for the entire 2015 lineup and they are pretty much exactly what we expected. The base Challenger SXT has a starting price of $26,995, while the top-of-the-line SRT 392 goes up to $46,395.

Things looked a lot different a century ago. There was no pre-sliced bread, running water was prevalently lacking in rural communities, and every automaker was considered a fledgling start-up business. Fast forward to 2014, and it’s apparent that’s no longer the case. Now as we roll into July, Dodge celebrates its centenary of making some of the most memorable vehicles in American history.

Technically happening July 1, 2014, Dodge’s 100-year celebration falls in a time of corporate reorganization that puts Dodge and SRT together. Dodge, owned by Chrysler, is tasked with building “mainstream performance” cars while SRT, is to build Dodge’s “ultimate performance” lineup. The consolidation of the two should play well for the company. But back to the party.

The company is offering specialized merchandise including car decals, key fobs, pens, coffee mugs, and clothing. There’s even a “Dodge 100 Years” book that depicts the brand’s rich history. Perhaps the biggest way Dodge is celebrating its heritage of building legendary street machines comes in the form of horsepower; that’s 707 horsepower, to be exact.

Now the reason Dodge has been holding out of the 2015 Challenger Hellcat’s performance stats makes sense.

As we celebrate our nation’s independence from British rule, it’s good to ponder on all the great things this nation has done. Put a man on the moon? Check. Conquered the Nazi regime, freeing Europe from its blitzkrieg? Check. Won every Super Bowl ever played? Yep, that too. We’ve made some pretty cool stuff along the way as well, including iconic vehicles that epitomize the American way.

Our list of most patriotic vehicles covers a wide gambit yet still focuses on those that either made a difference in our past, help define our American culture, or help pull our economy back into place. They’re the ones you can imagine seeing as fireworks burst overhead with the tune of the Star Spangled Banner softly playing the background. Yeah, you’re starting to get the idea.

So without any further ado, click past the jump for TopSpeed’s list of most patriotic vehicles.

It’s been less than a month since Porsche introduced the Cayman GTS at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show in China, and word has it the Germans are working on yet another version of the sports car. Created to narrow the gap between the Cayman and the 911 even further, the GTS will lose its range-topping status in a couple of years if we’re to believe a recent report from Motor Trend.

Specifically, Porsche is supposedly working on a more powerful Cayman that’s likely to be launched under the GT4 moniker. The source claims the sports car is in for a hybrid powertrain, but whether the conventional engine will pump power using four or six cylinder depends on Porsche’s success with the 919 race car at the 24 Hours of Le Mans this summer.

If the 919 gets on its feet by June (the new vehicle struggled in the first two rounds of the FIA World Endurance Championships) then the Cayman GT4 will receive a turbo four-cylinder plug-in hybrid drivetrain similar to that fitted into the race car. If the 919 continues to struggle and fails to make a positive impression at Le Mans, Porsche is likely to opt for a flat-six unit, but without giving up on hybrid assist.

Obviously, there’s no word on how many horses might come out of each powerplant, but it’s safe to assume the Cayman GT4 will have around 400 horsepower at its disposal. Power will be transferred to the wheels via a transmission based on the PDK unit offered in the 911 GT3 , Motor Trend adds, without providing further details.

How much will this baby cost? Well, it appears pricing could stand around $125,000, nearly $50,000 more than the 2015 Cayman GTS and only $5,000 less when compared to the 911 GT3. Quite expensive if you ask us, but make sure you take all the details with a grain of salt until further info surfaces.

Updated 07/03/2014: British magazine CARreports that the future Cayman GT4 will deliver as much as 450 horsepower from its heavily tuned 3.8-liter, twin-turbo, boxer-six engine.

Launched in Europe in 2005, the Focus ST was the result of FoMoCo ’s desire to join the challenging hot hatch market. Offered in either a three- or five-door version, the first iteration of the ST featured revised front and rear fascias and a number of exclusive features that set it apart from the regular Focus hatches . Under the hood, the ST carried a turbocharged, 2.5-liter, five-cylinder engine based on a Volvo design. Although the regular Focus crossed the Pond in 2000, the ST version remained a no-no for the U.S. of A. until 2013. As we head into 2015, ford has unveiled a refreshed version of the peppy hatch.

The current model , which we can now purchase at any Ford dealerships, switched from the five-pot to a 2.0-liter inline-four. The turbocharged unit packs even more power, sending 252 ponies and 270 pound-feet of torque to the wheels. With all that power under the hood, the Focus ST not only sprints from 0 to 60 mph in a nippy 5.9 seconds, but it also returns up to 32 mpg on the highway.

Coming into 2015, the Focus ST is receiving its well-deserved refresh and gaining all the revised details seen on its milder, sedan brother .

All good things must come to an end, so the Gallardo is packing things up and moving out of Lamborghini’s entry-level supercar spot to make room for a brand new baby. Rumors swirled about the name of this new supercar, and the final decision was Huracán LP 610-4 and not "Cabrera," as we initially thought.

The Huracán LP 610-4’s name is derived from a fighting bull from 1879. This Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed of bull was unrelenting and thrust himself into bull-fighting stardom courage and strong sense of attack.

This new new Lamborghini will make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 2014, but it will also have more than 130 private showings that start in January. We expect to see it in dealers starting in mid- to late-2014.

Updated 06/23/2014: Lamborghini unveiled a new video revealing the technical details behind the new Huracan supercar. It is by far one of the coolest technical videos I’ve seen in some time.

Ever since the Land Rover’s Range Rover trudged over its first rough ground in 1970, the SUV has been leading the pack in terms of off-road ability and useful amenities wrapped in a utilitarian package. Originally only sold outside the United States, the Range Rover didn’t make its first official (and non gray-market) U.S. sale until 1987. Since then, the Range Rover has undergone three generational changes, with each becoming more luxurious than the last. The fourth-generation Range Rover debuted for the 2013 model year with a heavily revised and highly stylized design, and a more rounded, aerodynamic look.

I recently spent a week getting to know the Brit inside and out. My tester came nearly fully stocked with every conceivable option available from Land Rover, including the ultra luxury Autobiography Package. The list of amenities reads like a dream car wish-list. Full Semi-Aniline leather seats; rear seat entertainment package; 18-way power front seats with memory, massage, heating, and cooling; 1700-watt, 29-speaker Meridian 3D surround sound system; exterior Surround Camera System; Adaptive cruise control; Parallel Park Assist; four-zone climate control; and Adaptive front headlights. And that’s just the most notable of the optional extras.

The list of standard features is twice as long and includes things like the 12.3-inch TFT gauge cluster screen, the full panoramic glass roof, 21-inch alloy wheels, permanent four-wheel-drive with Land Rover’s Terrain Response System, and of course, power everything.

Speaking of power, the Range Rover had no shortage of it under its aluminum hood. Perched inside is a supercharged, 5.0-liter V-8 cranking out 510 horsepower and a rock-crawling 461 pound-feet of torque. Guzzling back the required premium gasoline, the massive 5,100-pound SUV sprints to 60 mph in a scant 5.2 seconds. To say the Range Rover Autobiography is an exercise in excess is an understatement, but for a select number of buyers, it combines the right amount of high-end luxury with the go-anywhere capabilities Land Rovers are known for.
