By info@topspeed.com (Sidd Dhimaan)
BMW has officially teased the 2 Series Gran Coupe, but that doesn't mean we haven't seen the car already. No, I'm not talking about the renders; it's the spy shots. Now, the so-called 'coupe' has again been spotted on video doing some cold-weather test runs. The car has followed the footsteps of its elder sibling, the 6 Series Gran Coupe, and will soon feature a slanted, coupe-style roof. Is this a success mantra, or just a counter-attack to keep up...

Mazda is Cooking up a Hot Hatch And It Could Take On Some of the Biggest Players in the Game

By info@topspeed.com (Andrei Nedelea)
Mazda doesnt do hot versions of any of its cars anymore, even though the likes of the Mazda3 and Mazda6 MPS (or MazdaSpeed in some markets) were exceptional cars in their respective categories before they were phased out.

However, that could change with the forthcoming Model S and Model X, as rumor has it Tesla has a substantial powertrain update in the works, with tech bits pulled from... [read more]

Vonnen Porsche 911 Hybrid Prototype Review

Aww, whered my power go? I asked, sarcastically. Id found one of the two limits of the Vonnen Shadow Drive hybrid performance booster fitted to this 991.1-generation Porsche 911 Carrera, and the difference was palpable. This time, Id just plain run out of juice. The Shadow Drives 1.0-kW-hr battery is small both for packaging (it sits on the floor of the frunk) and weight reasons. On the one hand, being small means it recharges quickly when youre not drawing off... [read more]
