We got our grubby mitts on a 2018 Nissan GT-R Track Edition and did what the car was made for: took it to a track. With elements from the Nismo but the "base" 565-horsepower twin-turbo V-6, Godzilla put up blisteringly quick lap times. In fact, it's the fastest we ever lapped Gingerman Raceway in western Michigan.

The Toyota Supra is returning thanks to a partnership with BMW. Toyota will unveil the two-seats sports coupe next week at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, but before that happens the Japanese brand showed the Supra race car that will compete in NASCAR's Xfinity Series next year. It doesn't look like the real Supra, though, as the realities of aerodynamics and NASCAR templates make it look like a sedan.

Audi has delayed the official reveal of the e-tron SUV, though the market launch is still scheduled for later this year in Europe. While the electric SUV hasn't been unveiled in full, Audi just showed off the interior, and it looks ready for production and highly advanced. It lacks traditional mirrors, opting for cameras and screens instead, including side-view screens in the upper corners of the doors.

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