EMPLOYMENT
Need a new gig? Want to work in Palo Alto, or one of the many other attractive destinations around the globe? Tesla currently has 1,656 job openings, from radar engineers to service managers. 

FUTURE
The Hyundai Ioniq will take on the all-conquering Toyota Prius with a bevy of powertrains: hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and all-electric. The teaser image is rather Volt-like.

DISTANT FUTURE
Could another Honda S2000 be in the works, and could it be a more direct rival for the Mazda MX-5 Miata? AutoCar has details.

REVIEW
While the Nissan Frontier quickly becomes an also-ran in North America’s small/midsize pickup truck market, CAR Magazine is reviewing the new, 2016 Nissan NP300 Navara, and they’re saying nice things about it.

WATCH
Earlier today, GCBC highlighted the Alex On Autos video review of the 2016 Toyota Tacoma. Surprisingly flexible but not quite as rugged as that Tacoma is this 2016 Audi S7, again reviewed by Alex Dykes, the most thorough and detailed video reviewer on YouTube.
