At the present moment in time, there is a serious shortage of individuals employed in the truck driving industry. Although it’s not a job that would appeal to everyone, this shortage would seem to be particularly severe.

Truck-driving, especially of the long-haul variety, is a craft that has a unique set of challenges, and because of that there always needs to be appropriate compensation for those who are in this industry. Much like other jobs in both the blue-collar and white-collar industries, the wages for driving a truck have not kept up with inflation.

The Mazda MX-5 is certainly an iconic model that we’ve seen on the streets in the past years. Every time the company reveals a facelift or a new-generation model, they try to keep most of the model’s design features, so it will be recognizable from distance.

Rumors have it that Audi is planning the introduction of an RS 3 Sedan for the United States market, after the company gathered together its chiefs at the North American headquarters, in Maryland. Hence the word that the model will be soon brought in US.

Unfortunately, we don’t have many information concerning how the model will look like, except for a rendering launched by the famous artist X-Tomi Design, which is trying to give us a closer look. But with the rumors stating that the RS 3 in US will be a sedan, we would surely not see it wearing the drivetrain of a Sportback, as the one portrayed here.

Porsche will try to keep on the legacy of the Panamera model, as it is planning to introduce two new models, which would revive the famous sports car. I am referring here to the 2016 Porsche Panamera Edition and Porsche Panamera 4 Edition. The models will be completely different than what we have been used with so far.
