Rivian's Next Model Will Shake Legacy Automakers to Their Core

Rivian’s Next Model Will Shake Legacy Automakers to Their Core

A 1,200 HP, rally-inspired performance SUV

Even if established back in 2009, nobody paid attention to Rivian until 2019 when the company unveiled the R1S SUV and the R1T truck. Both models have taken the market by surprise and proven themselves to be very successful. In fact, Rivian is so sure about its success that it invested billions in new factories. Its main goal is to become a serious competitor to Tesla.

The future looks very busy for Rivian: after it trademarked two new names: the R1V and R2X in 2020, new rumors suggest a more powerful, luxurious R1X SUV is also under development.

Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLB

Changes will be minimal, but there could be a new GLB 45 AMG trim

Unveiled in 2019, the GLB is a relatively new model. But despite only being three years old, the GLB - just like every other model in Mercedes’ lineup - is due for an update. A first prototype was caught testing on the streets of Germany, and just as expected, it wears very little camouflage. This means the changes will be minimal, with the only updates being an attempt to keep the GLB fresh for a few more years.

The 2024 Ford Mustang Will Punch Above its Weight Class

That’s an Improvement of 50 horsepower over the current Mustang GT

The eighth-generation Ford Mustang has been the subject of rumors for a very long time, and an official debut will finally happen on September 14, 2022 – the first day of the Detroit motor show. The new generation Mustang - internally known as the S650, will be updated inside and, while retaining the current engine lineup, it will offer some significant performance improvements. A recent report from Ford Authority reveals that the updated V-8 engine should deliver as much as 500 horsepower in at least one configuration.

The interior will be inspired by the Taycan

At the same time as all the other models in the 911 lineup, the Carrera will also receive an update. The first prototypes were caught testing back in February, and testing has continued ever since.

This Porsche 928 Restomod Blends Modern Power and Tech with Timeless Design

This Porsche 928 Restomod Blends Modern Power and Tech with Timeless Design

It comes with a 400 horsepower V-8 engine

When Porsche launched the 918 in 1978 people were amazed. It had an unconventional design, a front-mounted V-8, and was Porsche’s only luxury grand tourer. In fact, Porsche never had a car like it before. The model was supposed to replace the 911, since Porsche thought the sports car reached the limits of its potential. Of course, that never happened, as the 911 is as iconic today as it ever was, and the 928 stayed in production for 17 years with more than 60,000 units produced. Despite many rumors, the car never had a proper successor, which is a shame if you ask us.

Too soon for a facelift?

It should pack more power than the SF90 and deliver improved driving dynamics

Ferrari has been testing a hardcore version of the SF90 Stradale for about a month now - at least from what we know. The first prototype was caught testing back in May around Maranello, and it seems that the Italian company is now continuing its testing session at a much higher altitude. A prototype of the SF90 Versione Speciale and a very strange-looking mule of the Ferrari Daytona SP3 were caught testing in the Alps at an altitude of approximately 2500 meters.

Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Audi S4

The biggest changes to the Audi S4 will be made to the interior, but that’s not all that will change

The Audi S4 is currently in its sixth generation. If this sounds weird, since there are only five A4 generations, it is because the first generation S4 was based on the Audi 100, and it wasn’t until 1997 that it moved to the same platform as the A4. Ever since 1997, the S7 is evolving at the same time as the A4, and with a new generation A4 around the corner, there will also be a new S4. Audi managed to keep the car a secret so far - we’ve only seen one or two prototypes out for testing - but today we’ve got a fresh look at the upcoming S4.

How Gordon Murray Will Take on Mainstream Automakers Like Volkswagen

How Gordon Murray Will Take on Mainstream Automakers Like Volkswagen

Electric SUVs are the last thing we expected from Gordon Murray

There are not many new cars in the world today that can give a truly raw and authentic driving experience similar to that of a proper race car while also being drivable on the street on a daily basis. However, that was the intent of GMA-Gordon Murray Automotive. The T.50 comes with only a 6-speed manual gearbox, a naturally aspirated V-12 with a rev limiter over 10,000 RPM, and a driver’s seat set right in the middle of the car.

The T.33, while it still carries the same attitude and has an extremely similar V-12 and gearbox, it is a bit cheaper and more conventional. Now though, this bastion of V-12s and stick shifts is looking to develop something a bit different - a pair of electric SUVs.

Surprisingly the interior design is not inspired by the Taycan!

There is no doubt about one thing: the future will be electric! Every automaker out there is focusing all its resources into developing more and more electric cars, and Porsche is no exception. After the Taycan and the announcement that the entire 718 lineup will be electric, the Macan will also be sold as an EV.

The model has been testing for quite some time now, but an official debut won’t happen until later in 2023. Now, however, we’re finally getting a look at the Macan EV’s interior for the very first time.

The BMW M3 Touring Could be the Best M Car Ever Built

A hot wagon is always the stuff of dreams for car enthusiasts, and the M3 Touring could be the hottest car of the decade

When BMW M announced back in 2020 that they were building an M3 Touring, the excitement surrounding the car was indeed very high. After all, it’s BMW M’s first wagon in more than a decade. The last high-performance wagon to ever come out of BMW M was the M5 Touring (E61), which was last produced in 2010, and this will also be the first time that an M3 Touring will be ever produced. Australian automotive website CarExpert managed to have an intimate chat with the folks at BMW M who led the development of the highly-anticipated wagon.

This is the last ICE-powered Audi Q5 before the nameplate will be fully electrified

The Audi Q5 is one of the most popular SUVs in the automaker’s portfolio. Like most cars worldwide, the Q5 will also be transitioned into an EV a few years from now. But, before that, the SUV will go under the knife and come out in a fresh avatar in what would be the last generational update given to the internal combustion-engined Q5. The next-gen Q5, which will be the third generation, has been spotted testing in the Alps, and from what we can decipher, it will get a hefty redesign.
