  • Chris Harris at RM Sotheby's Youngtimers collection

    For any car buff born into Generation X, or perhaps even some Millennials, the collection is this video is motoring nirvana.

Harris, who has been a favorite of "Top Gear" fans since the original presenters parted from the show, makes his feelings very clear while investigating the collection: he wants them all. So do we. He starts off in a section of BMWs, which is full of original Alpinas and any M...

  • 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Turbo spy shots

    A coupe-like version of the Porsche Cayenne has been rumored for several years and prototypes testing in the wild confirm the vehicle is finally coming. Their sighting follows comments made last year by Porsche CEO Oliver Blume that the green light for production had been given.

  • Bugatti EB110 at Jay Leno's Garage

He's also the guy behind the Lotus Elise, but that's another story. At...
