15Spy Shots: 2008 Honda Accord V6

Chris Doane has done it again. The latest Accord to be caught by this ace spy photographer is apparently the 2008 Honda Accord V6. Note the dual rear exhausts when you click through to see the full-size pics at Straightline. Another lightly-disguised sedan undergoing final testing, this V6 differs little from the previous base sedan we showed you a couple of weeks ago. Slightly different 7-spoke wheels and a sunroof are the only apparent changes besides the dual pipes out back. Oh, and one inter

93Spy Shots: 2008 Honda Accord sedan caught!

var digg_url = 'http://www.digg.com/design/2008_Honda_Accord_sedan_spied_PICS'; Ace spy photographer Chris Doane happened upon a very lightly disguised 2008 Honda Accord sedan development vehicle doing some hot weather testing, and fortunately for us had his camera on him (we think he sleeps with a Canon under his pillow). The Accord is certainly one of Honda's most important products, and we can see from these shots that the sedan will look similar but not identical to the Accord coupe that

29VetteGate: Spy photographers respond to fake Blue Devil pics

var digg_url = 'http://www.digg.com/offbeat_news/VetteGate_Spy_photographers_respond_to_fake_Blue_Devil_pics'; No doubt by now you've heard about VetteGate, our name for the prank pulled by online buff book Winding Road in its January 2007 issue. To recap, WR took a Corvette Z06 and masked it up with tape, fake fender flares and a hood scoop made from cardboard. The result was a car that looked convincingly like a prototype for the "Blue Devil" super Vette currently being developed by General

23Spy Shots: 2008 Mazda6

Ace spy photog Chris Doane has scored shots of the 2008 Mazda6, and they show that the next mid-size from Mazda will grow in both length and width over the current model. Check out the extended rear fender flares and raised gas gap, both both clear indicators that the 6's sheetmetal will be expanding. While it's difficult to make out a face through the front camouflage, the front end is also clearly larger. That's a good thing, as Mazda needs to make room underhood for Ford's new 250-hp, 3.5-lit

12Spy Shots: 2008 Volkswagan Tiguan

Ace spy photog Chris Doane stalked and shot the upcoming Tiguan, the Rabbit-based small CUV from Volkswagen that should arrive as a 2008 model. The styling appears to be exactly what you'd expect a small VW soft-roader to look like, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Engine choices are obvious, with the 2.0-liter TFSI used in the GTI getting the nod as the sole motor at launch. The R32's 3.2-liter V6 may be an option down the line, as well. We have to wonder, though, if a Rabbit and a Tiguan g

32Ford employee chases spy photographer in 2008 F-250

To hear Chris Doane tell it, the day was like any other. He stumbled upon a 2008 Ford Super Duty F-250 Powerstroke in a parking lot and started snapping away. The driver eventually returned and this is where Doane's day took a sharp turn towards the bizarre and frightening. The driver in question, who our sources tell us is indeed a Ford employee, snapped a synapse and chased Doane on public roads for a half an hour, including following him in and out of parking lots, tailgating him while runnin
