The hilarious Craigslist ad that spawned a project to restore Luke Aker’s much-loved but neglected 1996 Nissan Maxima to its former luxury has reached fruition. The car is ready for display at Nissan North America’s headquarters.

It turns out the ECU programming on the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 may be a little on the conservative side. Owners are finding out that power in their Z06s is temporarily being limited after heavy use.

The first prototype for the next-generation BMW 5-Series has been spotted. It appears designers are planning an evolution of the current model’s themes but with more sculpted surfaces and elements borrowed from the recent BMW Future Luxury concept.

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