According to reports, Seattle-based Axon is offering certain new candidates and existing employees Tesla Model 3s—if they meet certain requirements. Although this seems like a pretty sweet deal, you have to remember the Model 3 is not slated to come out until 2017...and even then, there's a waitlist roughly 400,000 people long.

A new Honda Civic Si is slated to debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. We don’t know any power numbers for the Si yet, but you can expect it to make more ponies than the 180 horsepower coming from the 1.5-liter inline-four in the regular Civic. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the new Si on November 14.

If the Mustang GT350 wasn’t insane enough for you, Texas-based Hennessey Performance is willing to boost it up to more than 800 hp with the help of a 2.9-liter supercharger. With all that added power, the modified Mustang is able to blast from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.3 seconds and run the quarter mile at 10.8.
