Audi just turned on its stress-busting connected traffic light system

Audi has switched on its connected traffic lights system, with drivers of certain model year 2017 cars getting sneak-previews of upcoming red lights in Las Vegas. Dubbed Traffic Light Information, the new system is part of Audi's growing connect PRIME portfolio of connected car services, and relies on tapping into smart city infrastructure expected to spread across the US.

Get ready for trouble: the 2018 Audi TT RS is most definitely going to stir up some problems among the new Porsche Cayman S, Mustang GT350, Corvette Stingray, and BMW M2. Having driven all five of these road-legal racers, I have no doubts that the TT RS will hold against its best German and American rivals. It’s a fast car that happens to look great, excelling on the track while still delivering all the creature comforts you'd want in a daily driver.

Has Tesla’s Supercharger Network finally met its match?

Has Tesla’s Supercharger Network finally met its match?

Tesla's Supercharger network is arguably the jewel in the EV company's crown: without it, after all, cars like the Model S would be far less appealing for everyday transportation. Now, though, a consortium of traditional automakers is partnering up to eclipse Superchargers with a more widespread connector than Tesla's proprietary plug. Including big names like Volkswagen Group, BMW, and Daimler, the joint venture aims to make all-electric long-distance travel a reality, in Europe at least.

Audi gives its R8 supercar laser vision

There's little that can't be improved with lasers, and Audi's 2017 R8 V10 plus exclusive is no different, the first car in the US to bear laser headlights. Set to be revealed at the LA Auto Show 2016 in just a couple of weeks time, the V10 coupe is the first of the automaker's production cars to incorporate laser light technology for the US market; it'll be exceedingly rare, too, coming in a short-run edition of just 25. Does it make a difference? We can tell you that it certainly does, having had the opportunity to test a 2017 R8 V10 plus under some interesting circumstances - on the track in the dead of night.

2017 Audi S3 First Drive: The compact sports sedan gets fiercer

You don't have to put the 2017 Audi S3 next to its A4 sibling to see that, in fitting Halloween style, the resemblance is spooky. Audi's feisty little sedan has been satisfying eager drivers wanting the punch of the company's excellent turbocharged engines with the reassurance of its quattro all-wheel drive since 2013. Now, sitting - for the moment, at least - atop a mid-cycle refresh of the whole A3 range, it's getting a little more expensive and a lot more personality.

Audi R8 e-tron production ends with less than 100 made

Audi R8 e-tron production ends with less than 100 made

The Audi R8 e-tron is a unicorn of a car. It was officially available only in Europe and you couldn't configure one using the online configurator for all other R8 models. Anyone that wandered into an R8 dealership and asked to order was sent to someone at the Audi factory to complete the process. The result is a car that was made in very small quantities and a car that has been discontinued.
