Enhanced Autopilot Returns As An Option Between FSD And Standard Autopilot For Tesla Vehicles

Enhanced Autopilot is making a return to the Tesla lineup. Enhanced Autopilot acts as a halfway house between standard Autopilot and the $12,000 Full Self Driving feature available on Tesla products.

2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 Arrives With A Swoopy Porsche-esque Design Faithful To The Prophecy Concept

The all-new 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 is an elegant and flowing electric sedan that hasn’t strayed far from the 2020 Prophecy concept.

Red Bull Is Building A $6 Million, 1,233-HP V8 Hybrid Hypercar

Having seen what Mercedes can do with the AMG One, now Red Bull will be trying their hand at an F1-inspired hypercar. Unlike the offering from their German rivals, the car – codenamed RB17 – will feature a twin-turbo V8 instead of a V6 as is found in the back of the RB18 F1 car. Autocar says it will have 1,233 hp (1,250 PS), including 148 hp (150 PS) of electric assistance, which will be deployed as an F1-style energy recovery system. Adrian Newey is the man behind the new creation, and each hypercar will cost $6 million when it goes on sale in 2025.
