French automaker Renault is hard at work developing a new mid-engine sports car to be sold under a revived Alpine brand, and we have new spy shots of a prototype. Unfortunately, there are no plans to bring the Alfa Romeo 4C and Porsche 718 Cayman rival to the United States.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is due for a reveal at the same time the movie “The Fate of the Furious” is due to hit theaters. We saw a wide-body Challenger appear in a trailer for the film, and it’s safe to assume that this is the car that Dodge is calling the Demon.  A video has also appeared showing actor Vin Diesel with a couple of Challengers, and one of them looks to have a Demon logo on them.

Hennessey has announced that production of its Venom GT has ended. The last car is a Glacier Blue example that’s already been sold. Don’t feel too sad as Hennessey says a successor will be unveiled later this year.

You'll find these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.
