Ford Taurus: Production ends for American sedan

The Ford Taurus is officially dead in North America, after more than three decades on sale and over 8 million examples produced. It marks the start of a new era for the Blue Oval, which is now shifting its focus to crossovers and utilities in the US – spelling the end of all its passenger models bar the Mustang sports car. First shown at the Los Angeles motor show in 1985, the Taurus "represented the latest in Ford engineering and design". By 1992, the Taurus was America's top-selling car.

VW revives the Beach Buggy – and it’s electric

Volkswagen has revived the iconic beach buggy, unveiling the modern 'ID. Buggy' sand-blaster on the eve of the 2019 Geneva motor show. While it’s only a concept car for now, VW executives say it is "70 per cent" production ready and only a few years away. The modern Beach Buggy shows how serious Volkswagen is about getting doubters across the line with its vision for an electric future.

American publication Carscoops claims it has unnamed sources telling it the Raging Bull will bring the Aventador SVJ Roadster to the Swiss event, complete with all the mechanical and aerodynamic upgrades already seen in the coupe, though with a removable carbon-fibre roof.
