Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Mercedes-AMG GLB 35
In the past few weeks, Mercedes has been very busy testing its entire lineup of facelift models, from the smallest sedan to the most luxurious SUV. Just a few days ago our spy photographers caught the standard 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLB during some testing on the streets of Germany. Today the company made a step forward and took the facelift AMG GLB 35 out for a first testing session. Our spy photographers were once again in the right place at the right time, so we get to have a first look at the future compact AMG crossover.
Rivian’s Next Model Will Shake Legacy Automakers to Their Core
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
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.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Audi Q6 E-Tron Sportback
One may argue that this is not the first time we see the next Audi Q6 e-Tron out testing. However, so far, we’ve only seen the Q6 e-Tron as an SUV. But these new spy shots reveal that the Ingolstadt company is also working on a Q6 e-Tron SUV Coupe. With the standard Q6 e-Tron expected to debut sometime in late 2022, the Sportback version will arrive about six months later, so sales should begin in late 2023.

The 2024 Ford Mustang Will Punch Above its Weight Class
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 2024 Mercedes-AMG GT Could Outgun the Ferrari 296 and Lamborghini Sian
The first-generation Mercedes AMG GT was unveiled at the 2014 Paris Motor Show and after eight very successful years, Mercedes is preparing to launch the second generation. Prototypes of the next-gen GT have been caught testing many times before, and with the official launch getting closer we’re now learning some pretty wild details.
We already know that the next AMG GT will only be offered as a coupe, with the new SL serving as the dedicated AMG roadster of the lineup. And while the exterior design will be heavily redesigned and re-engineered to take on cars like the Porsche 911, it’s what’s happening under the hood that really matters.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS
With the “regular” 911 (992) GT3 out and official, all eyes are now headed towards the GT3 RS. As expected, the more hardcore version of the already hardcore GT3 will feature more of everything - except for the weight, of which it will have less. The most important thing is that the latest most track-focused normally-aspirated 911 is underway, and here’s what we can expect.
Updated 7-29-2022: The Porsche 911 GT3 RS has been spied one last time prior to its debut in August 2022 Check out the new spy shots below!
Mercedes-Benz is not ready to give up its AMG V-8 engine just yet, so in order to meet the new emission standard, it will go with hybridization for a while. Its solution for the moment will be to assist the gasoline engine with a torquey electric motor that will help not only improve the vehicle’s performance but also improve fuel economy. Of course, the AMG version of the next generation E-Class will be no exception. Known as the AMG E53e, the hybrid sedan was first caught during cold winter conditions of the Arctic Circle and now it is back for a new round of testing on German roads.
Details of the new Lexus LFA Exposed
Lexus unveiled the production version LFA supercar back in 2010, after three concept versions were unveiled in 2005 and in 2007, and then again in 2008 in roadster form. Even if the car stayed in production until 2012 with only 500 units built, at the end of 2020 the company still had one LFA unit unsold. Still, the LFA proved itself to be a very good investment: after being bought new for $375,000 there are units out there these days selling for more than $1 million.
And, ever since the production ended, people were talking about a successor for the LFA. Initially Lexus said it has no plans for a new generation LFA, but after that, it revived its initial statement and said there could be a new supercar after all. It was even rumored that the new LFA could be developed in cooperation with BMW.
Rendering: This Toyota 4Runner Concept Will Haunt Your Off-Roading Dreams
Toyota launched the Hilux truck in 1976 and it quickly became one of the most successful global pickup trucks. In the 1980s, the SUV market was growing fast, and Toyota decided to offer an SUV version of the Hilux. So, in 1984, the company launched the 4Runner, but under the Hilux Surf nomenclature. When it finally arrived in the States the name was changed to 4Runner, and over the years the SUV became one of the most successful Toyota models. Currently in its fifth generation, the 4Runner is about to be replaced by an all-new model. Our sister site, HotCars, imagined how the new generation 4Runner would look like, and the result is not bad at all.
Here’s Your First Look at the Electric Alpine A110 E-ternité
Alpine was established back in 1955, and it stayed alive until 1995. The company tried its first revival attempt in 2017 with the introduction of the new Alpine A110, but the attempt wasn’t very successful. Now the company dropped the idea to offer an ICE powered sports car and decided to focus on an electric future. In a recent interview with the British magazine AutoCar, Alpine boss, Laurent Rossi, confirmed that the company plans to go all-electric by 2026. The lineup should include an electric A110 sportscar, along with an electric hot hatch and an electric crossover. While we have no idea of how the other two models will look, we now have a preview of the future electric A110.
BMW Will Change Up Its Naming Tradition with the new XM Hybrid SUV
There is no doubt about one thing: the next BMW XM must be huge! And we are not only talking about its dimensions. The XM will be BMW M’s first standalone vehicle since the M1 sportscar in 1978, which means it must be at least as amazing as the M1 was, if not better. The first details we have on the next XM are of course promising - an electric SUV with 750 horsepower under the hood in range-topping form will give its competition a lot to deal with.
TVR Still Plans A Comeback With Electrified Sports Cars
Launched back in 1946, TVR has had a rough past, but even so, it offered some of the most distinctive and visceral, lightweight, British sports cars in the world. The company saw different ownerships during its existence, and since 2013 it has been owned by a syndicate of British businessmen led by Les Edgar. After officially announcing its death in 2012, TVR planned a revival with the launch of a new Griffith sports car. The model was announced in 2017, but the pandemic and some emission problems halted production once again. Now, during a recent invite, British magazine AutoCar has learned that TVR has a new revival plan, but this time it will be done with electric sports cars.
