Big changes coming to “demonstrator” models, here’s what you need to know

Buying a “demonstrator” model is normally a great way to save thousands on a new car. However, changes to the way the industry counts new-car sales means customers need a crash course in understanding the differences in “demonstrator” models. “Demonstrator” models were originally designed to be just that: a car the dealer registered for people to take on test drives.

Ferrari crashes into Sydney shopfront, cops catch three supercars during high-speed chase

A series of supercar skirmishes in the past 24 hours have proven in no uncertain terms that just because you can afford a fast car doesn't necessarily mean you know how to drive one. In the past 24 hours a Ferrari crashed into the shopfront of a jewellery store in Sydney's CBD – caught on several cameras for peak embarrassment – while a trio of exotic cars appeared on a California Highway Patrol Facebook page after being busted doing more than 160kmh (100mph).

Holden posts lowest sales since 1954, Ford drops to 1968 levels

Holden has posted its lowest annual sales since 1954 – after a year that produced six of the slowest months since the brand was established in 1948 – while Ford wound the clock back to 1968. Both brands have struggled since shutting their local factories in 2016 (Ford) and 2017 (Holden), but vow to turn around their fortunes.

2020 Porsche Cayenne GT Coupe spied

A more powerful range-topping Porsche Cayenne Coupe, potentially bearing the GT badge, has been snapped during testing. Following in the footsteps of a red Porsche test mule we saw in 2019, this white car appears to have a centrally-mounted exhaust system. Don't be fooled by the two angular exhaust tips on the outer edges of the lower bumper, you can see the snow has melted around the centre of the 'diffuser'.
