Ford beats Holden first time in 21 years

Ford fans have a big reason to cheer in the New Year. In 2018 Ford outsold Holden for the first time in 21 years – since 1997 – which was also the last time Ford led the entire new-car market (at the time the end of a three-year winning streak). While both brands are now outside the Top Four – and preliminary figures show Ford sales were down for the second year in a row – the Blue Oval brand turned the tables on its former rival Holden, which posted its eighth year in a row in decline.

Tesla adds fart noise option via latest update

Tesla owners have a new easter egg to play with after the electric car maker added an "Emissions Testing Mode" to its vehicles via an over-the-air update. At present there are seven fart options to choose from, all named after a product from one of Musk's companies or a recent Musk-related controversy: Not a Fart, Short Shorts Ripper, Falcon Heavy, Ludicrous Fart, Neurastink, Boring Fart, and I'm So Random, which is a random mix of all of the above.
