2015 Ford Mustang Video: 2014 Detroit Auto Show

The new 2015 Ford Mustang wasn't the company's biggest introduction at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show--those honors would have to go to the aluminum-intensive 2015 Ford F-150. But with 420 horsepower in GT form, a sleek new body, and an independent rear suspension, the Mustang may be better than ever.

2014 BMW i3 Review

The new and revolutionary 2014 BMW i3 electric car is going to require some of the German maker's most loyal customers to rethink their notions of what a BMW actually is.

Bugatti Boss Rules Out Super Veyron And Production Galibier

Bugatti fans hoping to see the launch of an even more extreme Veyron than the 1,183-horsepower Super Sport or a second model based on 2009’s Galibier sedan concept should get prepared for some sorrow, as the brand’s boss Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber has poured cold water on the chances of either of them happening.
