2020 BMW M3 spied

The next-generation BMW M3 has been spied undergoing testing at and around the Nurburgring. Unlike the photos we published in December 2017, these latest images are high resolution and give us a good look at the car's exterior from every angle. Although there's eye-distracting camouflage covering most of the body, except part of the bonnet and roof, it's clear the new M3 will have a wider front and rear track than the volume-selling 3 Series sedan.

Ford patents smartphone-based autonomous vehicle steering

Ford has been granted a patent in the United States for a system it calls ‘Non-Autonomous Steering Modes’, which would allow an autonomous car to be steered using a smartphone. First discovered by carbuzz.com, Ford's patent allows the vehicle to be controlled through the accelerometer and gyroscope within most smartphones. The same system is used to control cars in video games like Real Racing, but hasn't yet made the leap to reality for reasons we probably needn't explain here.
