    Since BMW reintroduced the 6 Series line back in 2003, the big two-door has happily sat as the brand's de facto grand tourer. That will allegedly change come 2017, as Car is reporting that Munich will put its coupe on a diet with the so-called G15 generation, allowing the 6 to go after the likes ...

    Rumormill: Facelifted Hyundai Veloster to get new 7-speed DCT, Flex Steer
    1414612800

    No matter how you look at it, the Hyundai Veloster is an odd duck. With the vehicle's weird door configuration and styling that kind of looks like a modernized Honda CRX, the model is certainly unlike anything else on the road today. Since spotting one testing earlier this year (pictured above), ...

    Ford dominated the 24 Hours of Le Mans from 1966 to 1969, scoring four consecutive wins.

    1406491200

    Aston Martin may possibly (hopefully?) axe plans for a Lagonda-badged SUV, according to a new report from the blokes at Piston Heads.

    Rumormill: Toyota GT86 turbo, convertible, sedan variants back on the table
    1399298400

    Okay, Toyota, make up your mind. Figure it out. Quit playing games with our heart. Either build a bunch of variations of the excellent GT86 (also known as the Scion FR-S, and Subaru BRZ) or don't. At this point, we're just tired of the back and forth. After no shortage of denials, an Australian ...

It's usually accompanied by a video of Samuel L. Jackson. That's the advice we'd recommend for reading this article. GTChannel is ...

    1374776100

    The new Mazda3 is a stunner, both aesthetically and from a driving perspective. As with all good things, though, there's always room for improvement.

    1357678800

    Dodge has just confirmed that it will be bringing its newest Dart variant, the Dart GT, to Detroit next week, but we're still in the dark about when we'll see a truly hotted-up STR4 version. But now, by way of the rumourmill anyway, we've got at least one proposed, potentially Dodge-based ...
