We recently drove the 2015 Subaru WRX STI in order to find out if it’s in fact an improvement over the outgoing model. However, in addition to its predecessor the new WRX STI also has to deal with some newcomers in the compact performance scene such as the 2015 Volkswagen Golf R and 2015 Audi S3, so it has a lot going up against it.

McLaren has revealed a new supercar called the 650S. The car isn’t completely new as it is based on the existing 12C, but it features new styling expired by the flagship P1 model and a power boost under the hood.

Chinese auto parts giant Wanxiang has emerged as the victor in an auction for the assets of bankrupt electric car startup Fisker Automotive. It’s not clear yet what Wanxiang plans, but there have been rumors that it may start production of new electric cars at Fisker’s plant in Delaware.

You'll find all of this and more in today's car news headlines from around the High Gear Media network, right here at Motor Authority.
