The Nissan GT-R50 has been confirmed for a limited production run of just 50 cars.
Designed by ItalDesign in Turin, the GT-R50 serves to celebrate the 50th birthday of the both design house, founded in 1968, and the GT-R nameplate, which went into production with the 1969 Skyline GT-R sedan.
The Japanese automaker says the production car's exterior is "virtually unchanged" from the concept car that debuted at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The next-generation Opel Mokka X and Vivaro will be launched with an electric powertrain, as the Peugeot Citroen Group (PSA) looks to accelerate the brand's electrification.
Along with the load-lugging van and compact crossover, the Opel range will next year gain an all-electric Corsa compact hatchback. Details about the car are thin on the ground, we know it'll likely be built on a variation of the PSA e-CMP architecture that'll also underpin the next-generation Peugeot 208.
The model line-up for the upcoming 2019 Genesis G70 appears to have been confirmed this week, with six variants of the new sports sedan set to lob when it launches next year.
How do we know? A list of variants was published in this week's latest ANCAP safety test results – where the G70 was awarded a five-star rating.
Like the related Kia Stinger, the G70 will offer both four- and six-cylinder turbocharged petrol engines, and be exclusively rear-wheel drive in Australia.
Initial demand for the Porsche Taycan is strong enough for the company to approve an increase in production capacity, as well as new variants.
To be built at a plant in Zuffenhausen, near the company's headquarters, output was initially set at 20,000 cars per year.
