General Motors is the latest automaker to announce an investment in what transportation watchers are calling the "personal mobility revolution."

The 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer: Soldiering On, Sans Evolution and Ralliart

Because every car needs LED daytime running lights now.

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, a sports-car staple in both motorsport and street-car legend, is gone. But that doesn't mean that the sedan it's based off, the Lancer, is going anywhere.

Nissan's Front-Wheel-Drive Prototype Will Return to Racing in 2016

2015 wasn't a great year, but that's no reason to just quit.

Nissan's debut of its front-wheel-drive GT-R LM Nismo prototype racecar was at this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans. It did not end well, with only one of three cars crossing the finish line, and its finish wasn't even recorded, because it failed to complete more than 70 percent of the laps of the winning car. Many thought Nissan would just throw in the towel after that, but for the optimists out there, we've got good news - it's coming back for 2016.

GALLERY: More Cars and Planes Featuring the Aston Martin Vulcan

Wherein the V bomber meets a British luxury racecar.

Because automakers like to compare their sports cars to military planes, even though cars can't fly, or even do barrel rolls, let alone drop bombs on populated areas. But sports cars are often designed to look like fighter jets, which is why sometimes you will find pictures of an Aston Martin Vulcan hanging out with a 1950 British V bomber.

More Automakers Caught Over-Polluting: UK Test Finds Many Diesels Putting Out Too Much NOx
