Cadillac is flirting with the idea of bring a front-wheel-drive compact sedan to market to compete with the Mercedes-Benz CLA. The compact sedan would be based of the Chevy Cruze and priced between $23k-$33k.

Everyone take a deep breath: Jaguar may not be killing off sportbacks (wagons) entirely. Jaguar design boss Ian Callum, wanted to clarify that there would be no sportback XE, but didn't discount an XF with a roomier trunk.

Spy shots indicate that an 800hp Ford Mustang might be in the works. This monster would be badged as a Shelby GT500 and give Mopar's Hellcats a good run for pinks. Rumors hint at a twin-turbo V8.


Since drones have really become popular, manufacturers have started to get clever with their designs. A Chinese based company, Zero Zero Robotics has made a catchable drone that follows you, using an app to track your location. The drone also has a built-in camera, while carbon fiber framing protecting users from the blades.

If you're a little rough with your smartphones, try the DeWalt Smartphone. Built for the job site, the DeWalt Smartphone has much of the capability of an iPhone, but is resistant to water, dust, chemicals, impacts. That is, life.
