Today at The Car Connection, we're off to southern France for a very early drive of the 2015 Volkswagen GTI--which leads right into general rejoicing over the return of a Wolfsburg Edition to the Passat range. We'll fill you in on the plot for the latest Fast and Furious flick, (yep), lend you Congress' recipe for roasting Fisker's remaining execs, and swoon with you over a one-off Maserati and an original Acura NSX headed for Pikes Peak. It's all right here in today's car news at The Car Connection.

We take a first drive in the 2015 VW GTI, and find it lighter, sweeter, and happier.

If you were worried the NHTSA would crack down on handsfree calls in a move against distracted driving, you'd be wrong.

We know you're on pins and needles over the Fast and Furious 6 plot (!). So here's a mini-feature.

Fisker's remaining executives got roasted by Congress--but do we know any more about its future?

BMW's the latest EV builder to say it will offer solar charging for its electric cars. No word on whether patience will also be an option.

A one-off Maserati created from a Merak donor is up for auction. Who's a brave collector?

Honda's bucketful of entries for Pikes Peak includes an original Acura NSX. We swoon.

Don't let it gross you out: your next biofuel could be made from bacteria.

The new Wolfsburg Edition is here! We're still confusing it for Castle Wolfenstein, because we're old school.
