    Detroit: Mini John Cooper Works Concept heading wide-eyed into production
    1389650280

    We now know that Mini will offer a stupendous number of total models over the next few years, so it's fair to assume that most of the brand's concept cars have series production written all over them. So, a 'concept' like this new John Cooper Works Mini is more or less a mortal lock to hit...

    Detroit: 2015 Honda Fit shapes up for America [w/video]
    1389648660

    The Fit may be Honda's smallest (and, starting at $15k, most cost-effective) model, but it has never sold in quantities that even approach those of the brand's larger offerings – at least not in the United States. Where American Honda typically sells hundreds of thousands of Civic and...

    Official: Nissan Sport Sedan Concept foretells a future Maxima
    1389646200

    Nissan is in the midst of overhauling its design language. We got our first glimpse at the direction its style was going a year ago with the Resonance crossover concept, which was followed in Shanghai by the connected-car Friend-Me hatchback concept. And now, after dropping a few hints, Nissan...

    Detroit: Kia GT4 Stinger concept may be closer to production than you think
    1389644940

    After a trio of teasers, Kia has finally unveiled its GT4 Stinger Concept at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. Let's get one thing out of the way right off the bat: Kia says in its press release that "there are currently no plans to bring the concept to production." Of course, that's a qualified...

    Detroit: 2014 BMW M235i is your Diet M4
    1389643140

    Alongside its big brothers, the M3 and M4, the new M235i was rolled out by BMW at the Detroit Auto Show today as the sportiest member of the 2 Series range. The sharp two-door is the replacement for the current 1 Series, meaning the M235i is more or less the equivalent of the old 135is. ...

    Detroit: Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Concept could be something special
    1389641460

    With one of Infiniti's chief goals being to adopt a less US-centric product lineup and burnish its standing on the global stage, Nissan's premium outpost will have to get serious about enhancing its offerings' performance and image credentials if it wants to take on the Germans model for model....

    Detroit: 2015 BMW M4 Coupe ditches some doors, gains some grunt
    1389639480

    If you saw our earlier post about the hot new BMW M3 Sedan and were about to call blasphemy for no coupe version, just settle down, silly. Remember: BMW now badges its two-door 3 Series models with the number four, and thus, meet the 2015 M4 Coupe. Looks hot, right? So yeah, it's pretty much...

    Detroit: VW Beetle Dune Concept is a high-ridin' dirty Bug
    1389637740

    Those with long memories will recall that this isn't the first time VW has put its reborn retrocar on stilts. We like the new (but not New) Volkswagen Beetle quite a lot. But while the stylish Bug is plenty of fun on paved roads, it lacks a certain set of skills possessed by some of its...

    Detroit: 2014 Porsche 911 Targa takes its crop-top off in Motor City
    1389635880

    Back in 1965, Porsche invented the 911 Targa as a matter necessity. Believing that a finicky National Highway Traffic Safety Administration was prepared to outlaw convertibles, the innovative automaker created the half-open car as a way to keep wind rushing through owners' hair. Though far...

    Detroit: Mercedes GLA45 AMG is black, white and red all over
    1389634200

    Mercedes-Benz has finally rolled out the production version of its GLA45 AMG, and, well... it looks pretty much exactly the same as the concept version we saw in Los Angeles. While that's not necessarily a bad thing, we'd definitely opt for the more sedate silver version (below) that we've seen...

    Detroit: 2015 BMW M3 is fast for the family man
    1389632220

    BMW finally brought its four-door M3 into the public view, showing the new sedan off at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. The new M3 represents BMW's return to small, wildly fast four-door sedans after a several year absence following the discontinuation of the E90 M3 Sedan way back in 2011. The M3...

    Detroit: Chevy Corvette C7.R ready to tackle United SportsCar Championship [w/video]
    1389630780

    When the United SportsCar Championship kicks off at the end of the month with the Rolex 24 at Daytona, the grid will be packed with European machinery from Aston Martin, Porsche, Ferrari and more. And that's just in the GTLM class. But the contest American racing fans are likely to be watching...

    Official: Supercharged 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 takes the C7 beyond the ZR1 [w/video]
    1389627000

    The Z06 is just about everything we got in the last ZR1, but better. After a bright-yellow false start, here is the real thing: the fourth-generation, 2015 Corvette Z06. If Chevrolet makes a ZR1 version of the C7 Corvette, it's going to be absolutely mega, because the Z06 is just about...

    Detroit: Toyota FT-1 Concept previews a future we want to live in [w/videos]
    1389624540

    Toyota has brought its A game to the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, showing off the striking FT-1 Concept. Short for "Future Toyota," the FT-1 is, we're imagining, the supposed Supra Concept we reported on early in December. Penned by the Calty Design Research team, the FT-1 draws inspirations from...

    Detroit: 2015 Ford F-150 brings big aluminum to the Rust Belt [w/video]
    1389621900

    Just when you thought you'd figured the fullsize truck market out, Ford goes and throws us a massive curve ball with the 2015 F-150. The big headline news aren't tow or payload ratings, though we're sure those figures will be fully competitive if not class leading, they haven't yet been...

    Official: Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge portends seriously powerful future sports sedan
    1389618000

    "If we built this car I would expect it to feature over 500 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque." Eau Rouge is a notoriously difficult turn at Belgium's Spa-Francorchamps Circuit that is capable of striking fear into the hearts of the most hardened driver. Naming a car after something so...

    1389589260

    The Ford F-150 is one of the best selling vehicles on the planet. Considering that, one can imagine that when it comes time for a redesign, there are hardly any half measures. For its lucky thirteenth generation, Ford has gone all-in on the single most important vehicle in its portfolio,...
