Subaru no longer builds a WRX STI, and the automaker doesn't plan to do so anytime soon. However, Prodrive may have the next best thing. The British motorsports and engineering company which used to build Subaru's World Rally Championship cars has taken it upon itself to develop a hardcore version of the latest WRX.

Steve Nichols is one of the key men that helped design the 1988 McLaren MP4/4, the most successful Formula 1 car in the sport's history. He's now founded a road car company which has unveiled its first product, a lightweight speedster inspired by McLaren's M1A race car of the 1960s.

Mercedes-Benz has teased a concept previewing the first of its next-generation compact cars. The concept will debut in September at the 2023 Munich auto show and looks to preview a redesigned CLA-Class, or a direct successor to the coupe-like sedan.
