BMW engineers are out testing a prototype for a new sports car to replace the Z4. We think it will be called a Z5 to reflect its larger size and positioning compared to the Z4. What we do know for sure is that the car’s platform will underpin Toyota’s new Supra.

Buick boss Duncan Aldred is being coy on whether we’ll see a production version of the recent Avista concept. Based on the same Alpha underpinnings as cars like the Chevrolet Camaro and Cadillac ATS, a production Buick Avista would make a worthy addition to the General Motors Company [NYSE:GM] lineup, especially if its twinned by a model sold at Opel.

It looks like Alfa Romeo won’t be killing its front-wheel-drive Giulietta anytime soon. An updated version of the car has been spotted testing. Unfortunately, we’re still not expecting this one in the United States.
