The open-top version of BMW’s i8 plug-in hybrid sports car has been spotted for the first time. The car is more of a targa than a true convertible, with its roof likely to be a removable panel that needs to be manually stowed away.

Today we learned that the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will be getting a torque reserve system. It’s a feature found on dedicated drag racers and helps the Demon get down the line faster.

Jaguar’s F-Pace is about to get a high-performance model. A prototype has just been spotted, and it’s believed to be packing a V-8.
