Several months back we discussed how Mazda was going to build the 2017 MX-5 Miata RF, well now they are finally taking preorders. Pricing will start at $34,685 and preordering will open to a lucky few on September 26th (today). For those of you who didn’t make the cut, normal orders will be taken on October 3rd.

The new 2017 Infiniti Q60 is handsome to say the least but Infiniti has decided not to allow the good looking coupe translate into a convertible. Do to low sales numbers, Infiniti felt it was not appropriate to continue to peppy convertible.

Sad news for Audi lovers, you will never see the 400+ horsepower 2.0L four-cylinder make it under the hood. With that much power in a small engine, the TT RS was set to be a rocket (0-60mph in 3.7 seconds). Unfortunately, we will never see this spunky 2.0L under the hood of an Audi according to engineering head Stephen Reil.
