BMW won’t railroad customers into electric cars, promises to give buyers power of choice

BMW says petrol and diesel cars will continue to be a part of its line-up and it does not plan to railroad customers into electric vehicles. While the German manufacturer is poised to introduce 25 new electrified models over the next three years – including 12 purely electric cars and 12 plug-in hybrids – it has reaffirmed its commitment to petrol and diesel power for decades to come.

Porsche Cayman GT4, Boxster Spyder to gain PDK option this year - report

Porsche will have a dual-clutch transmission ready for the 718 Cayman GT4 and Boxster Spyder by the end of 2020, according to reports from Europe. Evo Magazine says the PDK GT4 twins will join the six-speed manual this year, becoming the first motorsports Cayman or Boxster to get an automatic transmission in the process.
