Honda plans to release the next-gen Civic Type R some time in 2015, but until then the automaker continues to test it. The latest battery of evaluations is cold weather testing in Sweden. That meant the future hot hatch got to put on some camo and went to play in the snow. Our spies caught it at work, though.
The latest spy shots of the more hardcore version of the Porsche Cayman show it with basically no camouflage. Rumored to be called the GT4, the sports coupe is purported to be the little brother to the 911 GT3 in Porsche's lineup.
The next-gen Ford Taurus has been spotted testing in China. It's covered in camouflage, but that doesn't hide the massive, hexagonal chrome grille at the front. The look seems to take the style of the Fusion and just make everything a little bit bigger.
We're getting our first quality look at the next-generation Lincoln MKX in production guise thanks to these fresh spy shots, and they suggest styling that hews very closely to the concept from earlier this year.
Jaguar is preparing what looks to be a very modest upgrade for its long-serving XJ, now heading into its fifth year in production. The fullsize luxury sedan's changes are so limited it seems like a stretch to even refer to these changes as a proper update.
The current BMW 5 Series is just a few years old since its 2009 debut, but the Bavarians are already preparing to put the model out to pasture. Here's our first glimpse at the production bodywork for the next-gen sedan after spotting the wagon version during testing – twice.
The Boxster and Cayman are like the scrappy siblings compared to their star brother – the Porsche 911. And now it looks like the rivalry is about to get even more serious, as our spies have captured this hotted-up Boxster doing some winter testing.
Following the niche-oriented iQ and FR-S, Scion is preparing its first new model with mass-market appeal in quite some time with the iM. Just unveiled at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show in concept form, our spies recently shot some photos of a slightly camouflaged production iM doing some testing in Southern California.
With fresh entries from Lexus and Mercedes-Benz and a newer entry from BMW, Audi is in a rather precarious position with its A4 sedan, which has been on sale in its current form since 2008 (aside from its 2012 mid-cycle refresh). It's high time a new vehicle takes its place.
