Lotus Evija almost production-ready, still a maybe for Australia

As the Evija enters its final stage of testing, Lotus Australia continues its efforts to get the $3 million electric hypercar here. First unveiled in 2019, the Evija will be the first fully-electric hypercar car to come out of Britain and the Lotus stable.

2020 BMW M340d xDrive revealed, 'no plans' for Australia

BMW will expand into diesel for its sub-M 3 Series range, with the reveal of the M340d xDrive ahead of its in-person debut at the Geneva motor show. Sitting alongside the M340i xDrive, the M340d is powered by a 3.0-litre inline-six engine augmented by a 48V mild-hybrid system. At least, it will be in Europe – BMW says there are "no plans" to bring it Down Under. It promises 250kW, down just 35kW on its petrol stablemate, but packs a whopping 700Nm – 200Nm more than the petrol can manage.

Porsche has released two styling and aerodynamic packages for the latest-generation 911, giving the Carrera range a GT3 look without the GT3 price. Produced by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, the SportDesign package features a revised front apron and spoiler lip, and a new bumper section. In order to fit the new air intakes and vents, the front number plate section has been raised. Side skirts are also optional, helping make the car look lower to the ground.
