Mercedes-Benz revealed the all-new 2014 S Class luxury sedan a few days ago, and it'll go on sale this fall. We've learned that the car has all the technology necessary to be fully autonomous already, but due to current legislation Mercedes won't implement the technology at this time. But if the laws change in the next few years we could have a fully autonomous S Class on our roads before we see the next-generation S Class.

Porsche is preparing to offer hybrid and plug-in hybrid options for each of its vehicles. This isn't going to be just limited to the Panamera sedan, Cayenne SUV, and 918 Spyder supercar. This will include the sacred 911 model along with the Boxster and Cayman. The move is necessary in reducing emissions and helping with Porsche's fuel economy numbers.

What started as a modified 2008 Ford Mustang GT has gone nearly nuclear with a 358 cubic inch NASCAR Cup Car race car engine. This modified Mustang is far beyond a roll cage and upgraded suspension, and yet it's street legal, licensed, and insured. Best grocery getter ever?
