Kate Phillips wants to rein in Evans' allegedly diva-like behavior and force him to release some creative control.

Despite coming from a tabloid like The Sun, the increasing number of reports on Chris Evans behind-the-scenes behavior are starting to carry some weight.

It failed on a more basic level than we've seen all season.

A misleading segment, a rushed, artificial race, and a lack of the show's traditionally beautiful video make Top Gear's fourth episode a disappointment.

​Chris Harris, Rory Reid, and a couple of key guests give us what we’ve been missing.

With two long-awaited hosts to help carry the load and a hilarious guest interview, Top Gear's third episode is far and away its best effort so far.

Call it the consolation prize to Amazon snagging the old hosts.

Netflix missed out on Top Gear's hosts but it has snagged the rights to stream the new version with Chris Evans. We just don't know exactly when and where.

F1 Ace David Coulthard Also Rumored To Join Show

Schmitz and Coulthard would bring real motorsports experience to the reborn Top Gear, while Harris' writing cred would serve as a link to the old series.

Few know the Nurburgring Nordschleife like Sabine Schmitz, but she'll have a new challenge on her hands driving a Chevy Cruze in the World Touring Car Championship race there next month.

Sabine has been dethroned. The Queen of the Ring, Sabine Schmitz, was finally bested in a Larea GT1 S9 Evo track car on her home track, the Nürburgring Nordschleife, by her friend and fellow Ring instructor Ron Simons. The two have taken part in two other contests, with the first running on the Ring and the second on a soggy Spa-Francorchamps circuit. Naturally, you can view those videos, courtesy of RSRNurburgring, without leaving the cozy confines of Autoblog.

Last month, RSR Nürburgring put the Queen of the Nürburgring, Sabine Schmitz, up against Ron Simons, an instructor at the Ring (which we suppose makes him one of Sabine's subjects). In that video, the two tangled on the Ring, with the German in her personal Porsche 911 GT3 RS and the Belgian in the excellent Ferrari 458 Italia. The Queen was victorious.

We hope you have seven minutes to kill. RSR Nürburgring recently took the time to pit Sabine Schmitz and her slightly modified Porsche 911 GT3 RS against Ron Simons and his Ferrari 458 Italia in a sparring match around the infamous Green Hell. The clip begins with the two drivers engaging in a smidgeon of smack talk before the two get down to the business of beating each other's doors off around one of the most challenging courses in the world. Simons calls his car superior to Schmitz's 911

High-zoot supercar tour organizer Gran Turismo Events held its annual Nürburgring track day last month, and in addition to the amateur punters the gates were opened to two tuned supercars from Edo Competition: A Maserati MC12 Corsa and a Ferrari Enzo ZXX. The ZXX, in case you've forgotten, is the same love child of Edo Competition and Zahir Rana's ZR Exotics that belly flopped into the Atlantic during the 2011 Targa Newfoundland.

Any trip to the automotive mecca of Germany would not be complete without a visit to the famed Nürburgring, nor would a list called 1,001 Automotive Things To Do Before You Die. Thus, we've reached the whole point of Jessi and Patrick's trip to Germany: Drive the Nürburgring.

"Just brilliant." That was the verdict rendered by Nürburgring maestro Sabine Schmitz on the Exagon Motors Furtive-eGT, the electric sports car introduced at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. We don't know how she ended up in the car, but she had nothing bad to say about it, praising its low center of gravity, acceleration, grip, brakes and a ride that was like "floating on a cloud." She appears to be echoing the comments of French journalists who were given hot laps of Magny-Cours in the Furtive-

Two years after the Exagon Furtive eGT was revealed, the production version of French electric sports car is set to debut at the 2012 edition of the Paris Motor Show. While the newer version may soon steal the spotlight with its upsized set of 148-kW (198.5 horsepower) motors and a slightly larger 57-kWh battery, the original is not going gently into that good night.

The Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR currently holds the unofficial production car record for a Nürburgring lap with a time of 7:12.13. The Porsche Panamera Turbo S is the first four-door to show up on the list of lap times with a 7:52.00. The Audi RS6 Avant is the quickest wagon with a time of 8:09.00, and the first thing resembling a sport utility vehicle is the BMW X6 M at 8:24.00. That right there would be the target for a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 were someone to bring one to Germany for a 'Ring r
