One Dodge Dealership buys 99% of 2017 Viper production run

One Dodge Dealership buys 99% of 2017 Viper production run

One of the coolest cars that an American automaker has ever built is the Dodge Viper. This car has been brutally impractical since the day it first rolled onto the scene decades ago and we love it for that fact. The latest version of the Viper is very impressive and the 2016 Viper ACR with its massive aero holding a slew of track records around the country.

BMW Connected service adds Alexa and, finally, Android

BMW Connected service adds Alexa and, finally, Android

The smart car market hasn’t exactly settled along the usual Google vs Apple camps and some do take both sides, if not their own. When BMW launched its BMW Connected service early this year, it seemed to have actually put up a stake on Apple’s iOS side of the fence. Apparently, it was only bidding its time. In its new update, the service finally gets its first Android app. But that’s not the only thing that’s new, as BMW Connected is also gaining support for the Apple Watch 2 and Amazon’s Alexa.

VelociRaptor 6×6 concept can be yours for $295,000

The Standard Ford Raptor truck is a beast on its own, but if you want much, much more than what the factory can offer, you need to take your ride to Hennessey. The Hennessey crew can take a normal Raptor and turn it into the VelociRaptor 6x6 you see here. The price for the transformation is $295,000 and the money does include the base 2017 Raptor 4-door truck.

2017 Audi A4 allroad First Drive: Wunderwagon

2017 Audi A4 allroad First Drive: Wunderwagon

For a nation so addicted to crossovers and SUVs, it's perverse that Audi had to get sneaky to make America swallow its wagon medicine. The 2017 Audi A4 allroad keeps to the Avant-with-attitude ethos of previous generations, but introduces a brand new quattro all-wheel drive system that the German automaker expects to go down very well among what has traditionally been a fairly niche allroad audience.

2017 Infiniti Q60 First Drive: Seeing Red

2017 Infiniti Q60 First Drive: Seeing Red

In an industry increasingly driven by bottom-line bolstering SUVs that cater to sales volume over anything resembling a passion for driving or design, the 2017 Infiniti Q60 is a ray of hope. Here is a car staged to take part in the vanishingly small sliver of the market given over to premium coupes - a segment devastated by the transition away from personal luxury to sport-utilities in the late 90s - and yet the investment made in the completely redesigned Q60's every detail firmly communicates Infiniti's commitment to taking on leaders from BMW (the 4 Series), Mercedes-Benz (the C-Class) and Audi (the A5).

California will let autonomous cars without steering wheels or humans begin testing

California will let autonomous cars without steering wheels or humans begin testing

Self-driving cars have been testing on open road for quite some time now, albeit every one has a human backup driver inside that can take control the moment the need arises. In California, arguably the home of autonomous driving tech, that could soon change. The state's Governor Jerry Brown approved a bill late last week that allows limited testing for autonomous vehicles with backup drivers or manual controls of any kind.
