Audi has just launched the new E-Tron S and E-Tron S Sportback, both of which generate up to 496 horsepower from a three-motor powertrain. The handsome SUVs are the first EVs from a major automaker to pack such a powertrain—Tesla included.

BMW is set to launch a new generation of the M3 sedan and M4 coupe in September. The cars will offer manual and automatic transmission options, and if you want the latter you'll need to upgrade to Competition spec.

After ten generations, the Lincoln Continental may be about to go down for the count. Lincoln has confirmed that the current Continental will be phased out after 2020.
