Honda's future may not be all CVTs and dual-clutch gearboxes. Execs previously hinted at an 8- or 9-speed automatic, and now we hear it's fairly certain the company will roll out the same ZF 9-speed auto that Chrysler will use in several model lines.

Audi's new 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8 is a beautiful thing.
