Ever wondered what it’s like driving a communist-era Trabant? If you have, you’re in luck because we’ve put together a first drive review of a dung-brown example from 1982.

A much more modern machine is also in the headlines. It’s the Boreas supercar proposed by a startup in Spain. The company claims the car has a hybrid powertrain good for 1,000 horsepower.

Audi on Tuesday unveiled its all-new, fourth-generation A8. Noticeably missing, though, was the flagship sedan's sporty S8 variant. We hear both the S8 and S8 Plus is coming soon, the latter with a plug-in hybrid powertrain.

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