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

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.

Koenigsegg’s "Affordable" Supercar Promises To Be Just As Crazy As The Rest Of The Koenigsegg Models

If Koenigsegg goes through with the RAW project, the brand will produce cars in the hundreds,

When it comes to cars, Koenigsegg is at the forefront of innovation, but there comes a time when even the best of the best need to think about production output. So far, all of Koenigsegg’s offerings have been produced in highly-limited numbers, with the most common one being the 2022 Koenigsegg Gemera, which is limited to just 300 examples. However, the Swedish manufacturer has been considering a more affordable model since 2019 when it entered a joint venture with the Swedish EV manufacturer, NEVS, and now, we get to see how it looks.

An All-Electric Ford GT Could Dominate The Supercar Segment

An All-Electric Ford GT Could Dominate The Supercar Segment

The GT is one of the most celebrated nameplates of all time and a transition to electric could once again be history in the making

With an investment of $22 Billion towards electrification, Ford is betting big on EVs. Iconic names like the Mustang and North America’s best-selling vehicle, the F-150 (sold-out) have already taken the plunge with the Mach-E and the Lightning pick-up.

While these vehicles cater to a broader audience in terms of being accessible, what about cars at the other end of the spectrum? With such large investments toward EVs in the pipeline, it’s not hard to imagine heritage names like the GT could also make this transition. These exclusive renders from our sister outlet, Hotcars, should give you an idea of what a potential Ford E-GT could look like.

Should Tesla Spin-Off 'PLAID' As Their Very Own High-Performance Sub-Brand?

Should Tesla Spin-Off ’PLAID’ As Their Very Own High-Performance Sub-Brand?

Mercedes has AMG, BMW has the M Division, Audi has RS and Cadillac has V. But what about Tesla?

Right from the onset, Tesla’s have always been pretty quick cars.

BMW Sees Danger in Abandoning the Internal Combustion Engine

BMW Sees Danger in Abandoning the Internal Combustion Engine

“If you are not selling combustion engines, someone else will”

Every mainstream manufacturer and a handful of startups have started bowing to regulations, government influence, and the youngest generation of drivers to sink significant money into electric vehicles. It’s a noble thing that might be good for the environment, and it’s definitely good for an automaker’s bottom line, but are we to a point where it’s safe for all automakers to shift into an electric-only strategy? Well, there are a number of things to keep in mind, one of the most important being whether or not our electrical infrastructure can actually handle it, and then you’ve got the sheer cost, with one Mercedes executive recently saying that EVs won’t be getting cheaper anytime soon. The bottom line is that, right now, not everyone can afford to shell out EV money, and now BMW’s CEO Oliver Zipse, looks to that fact to explain why automakers should rely too heavily on all-electric strategies – at least not yet, anyway.

Lexus Says No to an LC F but Yes to Something Even Better

Lexus Says No to an LC F but Yes to Something Even Better

Will we live in a time when Lexus takes on the Mercedes-AMG GT? It seems it’s quite possible, if you can believe that

It’s been a year or so since rumors began to swirl that Lexus was building an LC F - a high-performance take on the LC500 grand tourer. As it turns out, Lexus did actually build a turbocharged concept on the LC platform, but it never passed the evaluation stage, which means that while cars like the LC still have a future at Lexus, the LC F is never going to happen, at least not in the way we all expected it to anyway. There is a noticeable gap within Lexus’ performance lineup, namely the LFA and the IS, and what’s coming to fill that gap might be better than an LC F could have ever been.

Ferrari Has A Good Plan to Keep Its Hybrid and Electric Supercars “Normal”

Ferrari Has A Good Plan to Keep Its Hybrid and Electric Supercars “Normal”

While Ferrari isn’t going all-in on electrification just yet, the brand is already working on solving the ever-existing packaging issues created by bulky batteries

Back in 2019, Ferrari decided it was going to delay its plans for electrification and, despite rumors that it had anything to do with financial stability, that just wasn’t the case. The brand was actually trying to decide just what kind of company it wanted to be in the future. Almost a year later to the day, Ferrari came right out and said that while the plan was to go all-electric by 2030, the brand will, in fact, never go full-electric and will try to keep the iconic V-12 alive by any means necessary. Almost a year after that, Italy started poking the European Union to allow for exemptions from the proposed engine bans of the future for both Ferrari and Lamborghini. This doesn’t mean that Ferrari will abandon electrification altogether – after all the SF90 Stradale is hybrid. But, what about the Ferrari EV that’s supposed to arrive in 2025? Well if this patent is any evidence, it won’t stray from the mid-engined driving dynamic offered by so many of Ferrari’s best cars.
