Porsche's production version of its stunning Mission E concept from 2015, the Taycan, has been spotted again. The electric fastback sedan is due for a reveal late this year and will offer at launch as much as 600 horsepower.

Bugatti is set to reveal a hardcore version of its Chiron hypercar targeted at ultra-wealthy track enthusiasts. Rather than a boost in power, the hardcore Chiron is said to benefit from less weight, a racing-style transmission, and aerodynamics aimed at increased downforce.

Mercedes-AMG is mulling a baby sports car to challenge the Porsche 718 as well as fill the void of the Mercedes-Benz SLC which is on its way out. According to insiders, it's just an idea and not a committed project right now.
