There were two different Panameras to wow us this week; one was the facelifted version of the flagship of the current Panamera range, the 2014 Panamera Turbo S
, and the other was a test mule for the next-generation of the car, the 2017 Porsche Panamera
. Yes, Porsche has already started work on its next Panamera and our photos of the test mule provide some clues as to what it might be like.
You no longer need to look across the Atlantic for a serious track machine. Canada’s Magnum Cars has launched its first model designed both for road and track, the MK5
. The car’s engine revs all the way to 11,000 rpm and produces a peak 250 horsepower, which isn’t bad considering it has a dry weight of only 1,200 pounds to carry.
Land Rover has launched what looks like one of the most fun one-make racing series in the world, the Land Rover Defender Challenge
. It’s a rally raid-style event and is being run together with Land Rover performance partner Bowler.
Another vehicle we spied this week is a prototype for the 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible
. Like the coupe, this convertible version of the sixth-generation pony car is due next year, and we got a good look at its interior.

This is a 750-horsepower Scion FR-S
built by GReddy for the upcoming SEMA show. Not only does it have an awesome wide-body kit, it’s also powered by a turbocharged straight-six borrowed from a Toyota Supra.
The Reboot Buggy
probably won't be very good for the average grocery-store run, but it's pretty competent off-road and in situations that involve jumping over things. It was built by a Michigan man who thought regular cars were just getting too complicated.
Our latest mega gallery shows the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro
, from the base Camaro V-6 to the new range-topper, the Camaro Z/28. The Camaro ZL1 is missing but unlike the rest of the 2014 Camaro range this car sees no major styling changes due to its complex cooling structures at the front.
