A prototype for Fiat’s 500X subcompact crossover has finally been spotted. The vehicle, which will share its underpinnings with the 2015 Jeep Renegade, will be the sixth member of Fiat’s ever-expanding 500 family.

We’ll have to wait at least one more year until the next-generation MX-5 Miata is launched but Mazda is offering a special edition model in the current version’s final year on the market. That special model is the 2015 MX-5 Miata 25th Anniversary Edition, and it's available for pre-order.

Audi is working on a second generation of its R8 supercar for launch next year, and that means a new LMS racing version should also be on its way. Today, we have a video with footage of the new race car during its initial shakedown test.

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.
