A controversial new rule in Russia aims to ban some groups from driving based on their sexuality. It lists transgender people, exhibitionists, voyeurs, fetishists and many others as not allowed to have a driver's license. Human rights groups in the country and beyond are up in arms over the act.

A 15-year-old boy in Russia is in trouble after crashing his Aston Martin in Saint Petersburg, and then allegedly leaving the scene because he didn't have a driver's license. The boy, who is a soccer player, reportedly bought the sports car with his own money and owned it just three days before the collision.

With the punishing set of responsibilities that come with command of three automakers, 60-year-old Carlos Ghosn is arguably the hardest working man in the auto industry. While his capabilities can hardly be doubted, it's quite clear that he can't do this job forever. And that's probably going to be bad news for the Renault-Nissan Alliance he so successfully helms.

The Chinese People's Liberation Army Air Force could be making a substantial addition to its ranks in the next few years, as Russia's Sukhoi is prepared to deliver its most advanced fighter, the Su-35, to supplement one of the world's largest air forces. According to Jane's, though, the PLAAF might not be interested in simply flying the new fighter.

The French government has officially suspended the sale of two Mistral-class amphibious assault ships to Russia. How, might you ask, is this different than the country's stance all along? And what happened to French President Francois Hollande making a final decision in November?

Imagine you're on a boat, floating in the Gulf of Mexico, perhaps partaking in some sport fishing with the hope of landing a marlin. A thunderous drone approaches, and you spot, barely, the big, silver shape and swept wings of a Russian TU-95 Bear bomber (like the one shown above, being intercepted by a US Air Force F-15). Well, with Russia's belligerence once again on the uptick, that's a very real possibility.

Porsche is best known for building very well-regarded sports cars and better-selling utility vehicles. Come to the company with a big enough bag of cash, though, and the Porsche Engineering division can create just about anything.
