Subaru has launched a hotter version of its WRX, but it isn't the WRX STI. Instead it's a new grade called the WRX TR, and its modifications are focused on improving the handling of the compact sport sedan.

Audi is out testing an electric midsize sport sedan, a vehicle that's thought to be the S version of the upcoming A6 E-Tron. Prototypes have been spotted on the Nürburgring and reveal some of the performance modifications we can expect.

Toyota has launched the second of four planned body styles for its latest-generation Crown. The latest is the Crown Sport, a crossover body style that for now has only been announced for Japan. It also introduces a new plug-in hybrid powertrain that may feature on Crowns sold in the U.S.
