Porsche is set to launch a new 718 but we’re not talking about a new entry-level model. Rather, the German firm is attaching the 718 designation to its Boxster and Cayman sports cars when they undergo a mid-cycle update next year.

Mercedes-Benz’s new E-Class isn’t set to debut until next month’s 2016 Detroit Auto Show. However, Mercedes inadvertently revealed the car in some photos snapped inside its design studios.

Another upcoming vehicle is the new Audi Q5. The second generation of the small luxury crossover is due to enter production next year and we have spy shots of one of the late-stage prototypes.

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