The Alfa Romeo Veloce Could Become a Reality for America in 2019
Between the Giulia Ti and the Giulia Quadrifoglio, there’s 255 hp. We think that chasm is ridiculously large, and FCA seems to agree. That’s why the company is supposedly working on a Giulia that would slot in between the two current cars. It's just rumored at this point, but a rumor we hope is true. Apparently, a car called the Veloce could pop between the Ti and Quadrifoglio and make 350 hp.

Apparently, multiple reports cite poor quality in the new Model 3. Also, a number of investors were shown the car and they, too, noticed its “relatively poor” quality, fit, and finish.
The Revised 2018 Mazda6 Gets Power and Style Bumps
Mazda made some changes to the already good Mazda6 for 2018. A few images of the company’s latest iteration of the car showed up and some interesting information as well. Apparently, the new car will feature some design and styling tweaks as well as a new turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder. Mazda plucked it from the CX-9 and dropped it in the Mazda6. It should make for one heck of a car.
