2020 Porsche 911 GT3 spied up close and personal

The next-generation Porsche 911 GT3 has been spied again, but this time much more clearly and in greater detail. Unlike the previous set of photographs captured at the Nurburgring Nordschleife, this latest prototype was snapped up close and at much lower velocities than the previous car.

Peugeot 508 maxed on the autobahn - video

With a trendy, compact new shape and frameless doors, there's no doubt the Peugeot 508 is a stylish customer. But its engine line-up consists only of 1.6-litre engines, which seems like minimal displacement in what should be an effortless flagship for the French brand. Turns out, the range-topping 508 GT can still shift, thanks to 169kW and 300Nm channeled through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Put through its paces on the autobahn by AutoTopNL, the sedan runs happily out to 241km/h.

Toyota Mirai trials set for Hobson's Bay

Hobson's Bay has announced a 12-week trial of the Toyota Mirai, with three hydrogen fuel-cell sedans bound for the beachside city council's fleet. The trial, which starts today, will put the fuel-cell sedan in the hands of council members on regular day-to-day duties. According to the mayor, Angela Altair, the results will be fed back to Toyota to help it better understand what's required for hydrogen vehicles to work on fleets.
