2019 Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder review
  • Styling is bang on for the intended buyer roof up or down; Engine and gearbox are a sublime pairing on any road; Chassis, ride quality and handling are all brilliant
  • Roof is fussy and not the most intuitive thing to use; We'd prefer the open exhaust setting to be the standard volume; Wireless charge pad just a tiny bit too small for large smartphones

OUR RATING
8.5 / 10

The Chevrolet Silverado 2500 is now well established locally, but in Midnight Edition trim it's an even tougher monster dual-cab pick-up.

2019 Holden Calais Tourer review

The Holden Commodore might not be built in Australia anymore, but the AWD variant still makes sense as a family tourer – even if it isn't an SUV in the classical sense.

Experiencing Nissan's electric vehicle charging infrastructure in Madrid

Experiencing Nissan's electric vehicle charging infrastructure in Madrid

There’s been plenty of discussion – most of it uninformed – about electric vehicles in the last few months. So, it was timely I went across to Spain to have a look at the way that country is starting to roll out its EV infrastructure. You might not think, on face value at least, that Australia has much in common with Spain, but Spain provides a solid case study for us here in Australia...

2019 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring review

The GT3 Touring is just the latest in a long line of 911 variants. Or is it? One thing's for sure – it's one hell of a manual, performance 911.

Nissan adamant EV batteries must have a second life

In what should come as no surprise, responsible vehicle manufacturers will look well beyond the first phase of a battery's life to lessen the long-term environmental impact of electric vehicles – and that's exactly what Nissan is doing. Francisco Carranza, managing director of Nissan Energy Services, told CarAdvice in Madrid the Leaf's battery packs will "outlast the car by another 10 to 12 years"...

2019 Mini Cooper S 60 Years review

A three-door Mini in either Cooper or Cooper S specification is, for mine, the one you should be buying. Here we tested the limited-edition 60 Years model in traditional British Racing Green.

I accidentally bought a 1985 Ford Spectron…

“Do you remember the ’85 Ford Spectron mate?” Might seem like a strange question to most of you but my mate Damien - hot rod builder, qualified panel beater, visionary and confidante when it comes to frivolous, nonsense car purchases - calls me often with similar discussion starters. “Yes, I do remember the Spectron, but we didn’t have enough money to buy one of them back in the day, mate...

Electric vehicle rollout shouldn't depend on government incentives - Polestar COO

Electric cars have been the hot topic in Australia of late – thanks largely to the (mostly incorrect) political debate from both sides of politics that has been taking place. But one manufacturer is of the opinion politics shouldn't really have a role in the phasing-in of the technology of the future...
