Google's Waymo is suing Uber for allegedly stealing 14.000 confidential files. Describing it's autonomous car research. Waymo says, the files were swiped by Anthony Levandowski, a former Google employee before he started Otto, a self driving trucking company eventually, bought by Uber. What a mess. Porsche just released it's much prettier new Panamera and it's already getting better. How does 680 hybrid horsepower, zero to 60 in 3.4 seconds, and a top speed of 193 strike you? Those are just some of the superlatives assigned to the new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. The all wheel drive V-8 also gets 31 miles of electric only range to help solve any environmental guilt you may have. It debuts at the [UNKNOWN] Motor Show next month. Ford's firecracker Fiesta ST looks like it's about to get even better. The blue oval's tiny hot hatch is getting a new 1.5 liter triple with nearly 200 horsepower.
