2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV: 100km electric range the target

The second-generation Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, due around 2020/21, will have a significantly longer zero-emissions electric range than the current model, sufficient to make it an electric vehicle ‘95 per cent of the time’ for the average commuter.

2019 Porsche Macan Turbo spied sans camouflage

The facelifted Porsche Macan Turbo has been spied devoid of any camouflage, giving us a clear look at the upcoming performance hero ahead of an anticipated reveal before the end of the year. Not much really distinguishes this vehicle from the standard facelifted Macan revealed in July, though there's a larger cutout spanning the width of the front bumper, along with the large squared-off tailpipe finishers sticking out of the rear.

Jaguar F-Type rally convertibles unveiled

Jaguar has modified a pair of F-Type convertibles for rallying, as it looks to celebrate the XK120's rally exploits during the 1950s. The rally-ready F-Type convertibles have new front and rear grooved brakes with four-piston calipers, hand-built competition dampers with three-way adjustment, a limited-slip differential, and a hydraulic hand brake for those hairpin bends. As you can probably see from the pictures, it'll happily emulate the leaping cat stuck on its rear three-quarter panel.
