The BMW M560e PHEV Will be the Next Best Thing to an M5

The BMW M560e PHEV Will be the Next Best Thing to an M5

565-horsepower for an M lite is just incredible!

The G60 5 Series, the middle child of the Bavarian auto giant, is coming in 2023 and will bring many changes along with it. Apart from the new design aesthetics, new powertrain choices will be offered, and among them will be a PHEV M Performance version of the 5 Series, according to the tipster ynguldyn on Bimmerpost. So while the M town CEO is hoping for a better EV future for M cars, M Performance models are quietly shaping up for electrified mobility.

A New Ford Thunderbird Could Serve As a Direct Rival to the Chevy C8 Corvette

A New Ford Thunderbird Could Serve As a Direct Rival to the Chevy C8 Corvette

Can Ford really offer a new sports car that is not the GT?

Ford Thunderbird (or the T-bird) was announced for the first time in 1953 as a direct competitor to the just launched – at that time - Chevrolet Corvette. In just a year it went from an idea to a prototype and was unveiled to the public during the 1954 Detroit Auto Show. Sales started shortly after for the 1955 model year. The Thunderbird was produced without interruption for ten generations - from 1955 to 1997, then discontinued until it was brought back to life in 2002. However, the eleventh generation was produced only for 3 years, so in 2005 the name was discontinued again.

Alfa Romeo Alfetta May Return As a Mid-Size Sedan, Sometime Between 2022 And 2026

Alfa Romeo Alfetta May Return As a Mid-Size Sedan, Sometime Between 2022 And 2026

Rumors of an Italian competitor to the BMW 5 Series are circulating, and it may happen sooner than expected

The long-needed “good marriage” of Alfa Romeo is finally a fact. While the brand was in a rather rough spot, despite churning out a series of great models – the 4C, Giulia, and Stelvio – being under the banner of Stellantis is certainly opening new possibilities. By new possibilities, we mean new models, and, according to a 2021 article from Alfisticrew.com, Alfa Romeo may be working on another rear-wheel-drive, sports luxury sedan, and it may happen sometime between 2022 and 2026.

The BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage Will Cost You More than $1,000 Per Horsepower

The BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage Will Cost You More than $1,000 Per Horsepower

In fairness, only 50 will be built, so the excessive price does include a bit of exclusivity

BMW’s Hommage lineup launched back in 2008 with the M1 Hommage, a model that essentially celebrated the legendary M1’s 30th birthday. Unfortunately, BMW never brought back the M1 beyond that concept or made a successor to it (unless you count the M8, which we wouldn’t), but the 2015 3.0 CSL Hommage concept will be making a comeback. A wide-eyed, big-grilled, thick-bodied concept from 2015 entering production in 2022? It sounds pretty crazy, and it might be, but wait until you hear how limited and how expensive it’s going to be.

BMW and McLaren's Partnership Could Be Larger Than Anticipated

BMW and McLaren’s Partnership Could Be Larger Than Anticipated

Will we see another iconic car like the McLaren F1 out of this deal or is there even more to it?

The record-setting and iconic McLaren F1 set a new standard for what a supercar should be, but part of what made all of that possible was the unique BMW-derived V-12 that gave it life. Over the decades since this legendary collaboration, there was nothing noteworthy between the two companies. In April of 2022, however, a new rumor claimed that the two would once again collaborate, only this time they would work together to build an all-new electric sports car platform. Neither BMW nor McLaren jumped on the opportunity to confirm or deny the rumor.

How Elon Musk's Acquisition of Twitter Could Help Tesla

How Elon Musk’s Acquisition of Twitter Could Help Tesla

Tesla might not pay for advertising, but now it can advertise for free

One of the most interesting things about Tesla is that it has a $0 budget when it comes to advertising. Of course, with all fanboys out there constantly advertising and pushing the brand, paying for advertising would be kind of silly. Now, however, Elon Musk might have an all-new trick up his sleeve.

The Toyota GRMN Supra Gears Up to be a Monstrous Beast

A new report throws BMW’s S58 inline-six around again, but is AWD a possibility?

It’s been a year and a half since rumors about Toyota working on an M3-powered Toyota GRMN Supra, but the rumor mill has been quite busy lately. Just this year alone, we’ve heard that the BMW Z4 is done as of 2025 with the Supra potentially following, and there have been two rumors about the GR Supra with a manual transmission Now, the GRMN Supra is back in the mix, and the latest rumor is building on the previous ones.

The Lotus Eletre Will Be the Heaviest Vehicle in Company History

The Lotus Eletre Will Be the Heaviest Vehicle in Company History

As it turns out the Eletre is quite the porker, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be light for its segment

Lotus recently launched the all-new Eletre SUV, a model that’s been criticized for looking a bit too much like the Lamborghini Urus – or an evolution of it. There’s also some criticism around its billing as the “world’s first hyper SUV” when it doesn’t exactly post hypercar-like power or top speed, the latter of which comes in at 161 mph, by the way. 100 km/h or 62.1 mph is said to come in less than three seconds, but as of today, power output has only been disclosed at “from 600 horsepower.” Hyper SUV? Doesn’t seem like it, but that could just be consequential as a pair of new reports expose not only the Eletre’s weight but what else Lotus has planned for its future.

The 2023 BMW X5 and X6 Are Going to be Epic

The 2023 facelift for the BMW X5 and X6 is going to be huge in several ways

It hasn’t been that long since I told you that the BMW X5 M and X6 M were going to change dramatically with the 2023 facelift. Now, a new report from BMW Blog that also cites company insiders say that it’s the entire X5 and X6 lineup that’s going to go through drastic changes in 2023, and we have the dirty details, the most important of which is some serious performance enhancement.

The Mercedes GLC Will Have A Six-Cylinder After All, But Don't Get Too Excited

The Mercedes GLC Will Have A Six-Cylinder After All, But Don’t Get Too Excited

The C-Class engine downsizing routine is still in full effect, but the GLC will have one little exception

As you know by now, the entire Mercedes C-Class lineup will soon be powered by four-cylinder engines, and that even includes the wild AMG C43 and wilder C63. The V-8 engine has, essentially, been replaced with a four-pot and an electric turbo. The full verdict isn’t in as to how well this is going to work out, but the same story will play out for the entire GLC – the SUV equivalent to the C-Class – lineup, or at least that’s what we thought.

BMW X5 M and X6 to Change Dramatically with the Upcoming Facelift

BMW X5 M and X6 to Change Dramatically with the Upcoming Facelift

Rumor has it that BMW will only offer the updated X5 M and X6 M in Competition form, but there’s good news too

It has been almost three years since rumors about a new BMW engine started to surface. It was said to be a new V-8, that we now believe is called the S68 and will carry on the legacy of the twin-turbo, hot-V layout. This engine, which could end up being the very last of its kind due to extreme efforts toward electrification, will first launch in the production version of the BMW XM, but has also been expected to trickle down to other models. A new report from Bimmerpost Forums claim it could even land in the X5 M and X6 M

The BMW M3 CS Will Be a Brutal Machine for its Size

The BMW M3 CS Will Be a Brutal Machine for its Size

New leaks point at some significant horsepower, standard xDrive, and plenty of carbon fiber too

2022 is going to be one of the biggest years for BMW in a long time. Not only does it represent 50 years of BMW M, but we’ll also get to see the first-ever M3 Touring and there’s a hybrid M5 that could debut this year too. But, next year is going to be a big deal too, and at least part of that is thanks to the new M3 CS. While there’s little hope of seeing the M3 CS outside of spy shots this year, a new report claims that it’ll now enter production in March 2023 – three months ahead of schedule. But, that’s not all that we’ve learned, and what’s coming next is huge!

Abarth Will Soon Step into the World of Electrification – Can You Guess With What?

Abarth Will Soon Step into the World of Electrification – Can You Guess With What?

A new report claims that Abarth isn’t only developing an electric hot hatch but that it’s almost done with it too

Abarth falls under the Stellantis umbrella, but it’s nowhere near as mainstream as brands like Dodge, Chrysler, or Jeep. No, it’s more of a niche company, and it focuses exclusively on Fiat products. Neither of these companies have ventured too deeply into electrification, but that’s about to change as Abarth is reportedly working on a new electric hot hatch. It’ll be based on the zero-emission Fiat 500e, and it’s scheduled to launch sometime in 2023.
