The next generation of Porsche’s iconic sports was also in the headlines this week. We spotted prototypes for both the coupe and the convertible.

BMW unveiled the new wagon version of its seventh-generation 5-Series. It’s called a Touring in most markets it’s sold in, and sadly the United States isn’t on that list. And if you’re still having trouble telling the new 5-Series apart from its predecessor, BMW has a handy video out detailing the differences.

BMW’s decision to not bring the 5-Series wagon to the U.S. is Mercedes-Benz’s gain. The Three Pointed Star is bringing the wagon version of its latest E-Class here, including the high-performance E63 model.

Semi-official Holden tuning firm HSV this week unveiled a super sedan powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 fitted to the C6 Corvette ZR1. The sedan, called the GTSR W1, is a special edition model celebrating the end of the rear-wheel-drive Holden Commodore range.

Burt Reynolds, the man with what seems to be an endless store of Pontiac Firebird Trans Ams modeled like the car in the 1977 hit movie “Smokey and the Bandit,” recently auctioned off another of the cars. It was a 1978 example fully restored by Restore a Muscle Car of Lincoln, Nebraska and sold for $ 275,000.

It’s hard to imagine a more romantic barn find than a dust-covered Le Mans prototype quietly sitting, waiting, in a dilapidated wood shed covered with moss in the south of France. But that was exactly the case for this Alpine A210 from the 1969 24 Hours of Le Mans.
