This week we received our best look yet at the upcoming 2015 Ford Mustang, or the S550 if you’re a die-hard fan. The styling of the car’s face has been revealed for the entire world to see and shows an aggressive look that borrows influences from both the outgoing model as well as Ford’s Evos concept car of 2011.
Porsche’s new 918 Spyder is officially due to be revealed in production trim at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show next month, however, Porsche quietly showed an example at the recent 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance where this photo (and a handful more) was taken.

Golf fans have a lot to look forward to, as news emerged this week that the 2015 Golf R, based on the seventh-generation of the longstanding nameplate, will be packing a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated at 296 horsepower. VW has dropped a few images of the car though we’ll have plenty more once the Frankfurt Auto Show gets underway in three weeks time.

This little beauty is the G40R from niche British sports car manufacturer and motorsport firm Ginetta. The car is based on an FIA-approved spaceframe chassis with front and rear double wishbone suspension and develops its 200 horsepower from the same engine found in the Mazda MX-5 Miata.
One of our favorite open-top sports cars, the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster, is certainly a thing of beauty. Dipped in this unique shade of blue, known as Azzuro Thetis, the color of the only Miura Roadster ever built, the Aventador Roadster is stunningly, neck-twistingly eye catching.

It may not look like much but pictured here is a very early test mule for the next-generation BMW 5-Series. Due sometime in 2016, as a 2017 model, the new 5er will be about the same size as the current model but much, much lighter.

This mean piece of meat is one designer’s vision of a Chevrolet SS coupe. Well, the car’s Australian equivalent, a Holden Commodore coupe, or to be more precise a Monaro. Sadly, there are no plans to build it though we’d love to see it as a new Monte Carlo or perhaps even a Chevelle.

BMW’s new i-badged cars won’t be the automaker’s only electrified offerings. Regular models like the X5 will also come with a plug-in option in the near future and this Concept X5 eDrive gives us a good idea as to what it will be like.
