Honda has released the first specs for its 2015 Civic Type R, a high-performance version of the Civic hatchback that the rest of the world enjoys. In addition to the new specs, we’ve also been treated with another concept version of the car, this time painted blue.

We’re sad to report that a Porsche 918 Spyder has been engulfed in flames at a gas station in Toronto, Canada. It’s not clear what caused the fire, and video footage shows that the flames actually raged the most on a gas pump next to the $845,000 hybrid hypercar.

A man spent $50,000 on a wrecked Tesla Model S and then spent an additional $8,000 fixing the car. Find out what happened when he contacted Tesla to have the car electronically reactivated.

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