We slid behind the wheel of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA35 AMG and found it's Gorilla Glue'd to the road.

Bruce Meyers created automotive art on wheels in the 1960s. Known as the Meyers Manx, his four-wheeled creations were dune buggies created from a modified Volkswagen Beetle chassis fitted with a custom fiberglass body. One of Meyer's oldest buggies is headed to auction in January with its original body and paint.

The new generation of the Porsche 911, known as the 992, has launched but it's still early days for the German sports car. A bevy of new models are on the way, including a new Targa model that was spotted cold weather testing. Expect it to be a 2021 model when it goes on sale in 2020.
