Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Audi E-Tron GT
Audi announced the e-Tron at the 2018 Paris Motor Show and sales begin in early 2019. After only four years on the market, the E-Tron GT is preparing for an update. At the same time with the base version, the Sportback version - launched later in 2020 will also be updated. In fact, these will be the last update the electric crossover will receive before being replaced altogether in 2026 by the Q8 e-tron.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2025 BMW X3
BMW’s hottest-selling compact SUV, the X3, is just a year old since it has received a facelift, and a new generation X3 is already in the making and will possibly launch in 2024 or the beginning of 2025. Our photographers have caught the upcoming fourth-generation X3 prototype near BMW headquarters as they were being loaded onto a trailer.
Update 7-4-2022: Another BMW X3 prototype was caught testing on public roads, this time with a different camo layout.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 BMW 3.0 CSL
In 1972, BMW unveiled the 3.0 CSL as a lighter version of the 3.0 CS (hence the L in the CSL name). Only 1,265 units were built, but none of these units were sold in the States. In 2022, BMW M celebrates its 50th anniversary, and to mark the event the company will bring the 3.0 CSL name back to the lineup. The model has already been teased by BMW M boss, Frank van Meel, on his Instagram account, but today our spy photographers were also able to catch the future sedan out for a testing session of the streets of Munich, Germany.
Hear The Sound Of The Porsche 911 GT3 RS In The Last Spy Video
Porsche will unveil the new 911 GT3 RS before the end of 2022, although we don’t have an official launch date just yet. However, a prototype of the future RS model was caught testing around the Nurburgring free of camouflage. The guys over CarSpyMedia were at the right time and they managed to shoot a video of the car while testing at the ring and we get to hear the amazing sound of the naturally aspired engine.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the BMW X6 M
BMW is working on a facelift version for both the X5 and the X6, including the base and the M versions. Both versions were caught testing many times before, including around the famous Nurburgring track. The facelift BMW X6 M was caught testing one more time, around the roads of Munich, Germany but also around the Nürburgring race track.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Mercedes GLS Facelift
Although relatively new on the market, the third generation Mercedes-Benz GLS is about to receive a small update - just like all the other models in the lineup. The third generation GLS was announced at the 2019 New York International Auto Show and was followed by a Mercedes-Maybach version is late 2019. What’s weird is that Mercedes started to test the facelifted Maybach version before the standard SUV. However, today our spy photographers are offering us some spy shots of the biggest SUV in the Mercedes line-up, the GLS facelift. And that’s only a few days after the smaller crossover, the facelifted GLA was also caught testing.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Range Rover Sport SVR
Land Rover recently unveiled the third-generation Range Rover Sport in May 2022, and truth to be told, it is the best-looking SUV to have launched in 2022. With the new Range Rover Sport out of the nest, we have the more beefed-up SVR to take things to the next level. Fortunately, our photographers captured the upcoming SVR prototype with a thin camouflage. The spy shots indicate that the design will be more athletic than that of the standard Range Rover Sport.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 992.2 Porsche 911 GT3
It’s been a little over a year since we’ve seen the new 911 GT3 and it seems that a facelift version is just around the corner. While all eyes are focused on the Porsche 911 GT3 RS that is supposed to be unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, our spy photographers caught the Porsche 992.2 GT3 out for a first testing session around Nurburgring. Of course, these are just some early prototypes, which means the official debut is not going to happen until later in 2023.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 BMW XM
When BMW unveiled the XM Concept back in 2021 it announced the production version will follow in just a few years. BMW has been testing prototypes of the production version for quite some time now, and today our spy photographers managed to spot another one out in the wild. It is the most revealing prototype so far, showing more details of its future and aggressive design.
Is This Really a Prototype of the Next-Gen Ford Mustang?
The American icon known as the Ford Mustang has evolved through six generations so far, not counting the Mach E. The current S550 generation of the Pony car is coming to an end and the 2024 Mustang, internally dubbed S650, is on its way. While we may see a production version as soon as April 2023, the next-gen Mustang is still being developed and under heavy camouflage. With that being said, test prototypes have started appearing on public roads, and YouTube channel, TFLnow presents the latest (so far) spy footage of the S650 Mustang prototype.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63
We are fond of the new-generation GLC SUV, which brings better design, tech, and performance to the table. However, with Mercedes’ promise of electrification, it is confirmed that the next AMG GLC 63 SUV will be offered with a hybridized turbo inline-four, unlike the previous iteration’s V-8. Our spy photographers caught a nearly unmasked AMG GLC 63 with a more aggressive front and rear bumper design.
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 6-21-2022: The Porsche 911 GT3 RS has been spied one last time prior to its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Check out the spy shots below!
New Mercedes AMG C-Class Hauls Around the Nürburgring...Quietly
A Mercedes AMG C-Class without a V-8 would have been considered unthinkable ten years ago. Back then, the 6.2-liter V-8, which had one of the best exhaust soundtracks since the turn of the century, was dropped in nearly every AMG model in production. This meant that the German car industry was awash with glorious rumbles, snorts, growls, and bellows from Merc’s handcrafted naturally aspirated V-8. Then, by 2016 the current-generation C-Class was in full production with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 that was more efficient and powerful than the old 6.2 but lacked some noise and character.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Baby Jeep SUV
We thought that Jeep couldn’t go smaller than the Renegade, we were wrong. Back in March 2022, Jeep dropped the first teaser images of its future baby SUV, and now, two months later, our spy photographers finally caught the first prototypes out for some testing sessions. The model was initially announced during Stellantis’ Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan presentation, when Carlos Tavares, the CEO of Stellantis, announced this will be the first-ever 100% battery-electric Jeep SUV.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Mercedes GLC Coupe
Mercedes is ramping up to introduce new generation cars its its line-up. First, the Stuttgart-based automaker’s best-selling compact SUV, the GLC, saw a comprehensive update with new looks and features. After the facelifted GLA was spied, it was finally the time for the GLC Coupe to go for road testing. The spy shots suggest that the front and rear fascias will see massive updates, similar to the GLC SUV. However, we expect the new-gen GLC Coupe to launch sometime in 2024, if not earlier.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Porsche 911’s Interior
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. Today our spy photographers caught a new prototype out on the roads of Germany and around the Nurburgring, and for the first time we also get a pretty good look on the car’s interior.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Mercedes GLA
The GLA has been one of the most popular compact German luxury SUVs, selling at a good pace worldwide. The current GLA is in its second generation, introduced for 2021, and we have already started seeing camouflaged prototypes implying a facelift is in development. However, it is in its initial periods of testing, so don’t expect further announcements until 2023.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Ferrari SF90 Versione Speciale
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 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.
