2014 is coming to a close so we're taking a look back at some of the most explosive stories from the past year.

Things got off to a fiery start in February when Porsche noticed the tires weren't the only thing smoking on the 911 GT3. Following a thorough investigation, the company determined loose connecting rods could damage the crankcase and lead to an oil leak which could cause a fire. As a result, all 785 cars were recalled and outfitted with a new and improved engine.

Several months later, an Acura NSX prototype burst into flames at the Nürburgring. The test driver was able to escape without injury but the car was a complete loss.

Last but not least, the 2016 Ford Super Duty had an explosive outing as a prototype was caught doing its best 4th of July impression in Death Valley. Unfortunately for Ford, our spies were on hand to document the destruction.
