'992' Porsche 911: Carrera S laps Nurburgring in 7:25

Porsche revealed the new 911 Carrera S at the Los Angeles motor show in November, highlighting its more powerful flat-six engine and slinkier, wider body in the process. Speaking with Road&Track at the car's launch in Spain, a Porsche spokesperson has confirmed those improvements make the '992-generation' 911 Carrera S marginally quicker than the car it replaces around the Green Hell. Surprising, right?

2020 Hyundai Ioniq hybrid, plug-in hybrid facelift unveiled

A facelift for the Hyundai Ioniq hybrid and plug-in hybrid models has been unveiled overnight, just a month after the current model arrived in Australia. External revisions to the Ioniq include a revised grille, tweaked front bumper design, new LED driving lights, and new LED headlamps and tail-light graphics for top-spec models. Grille aside, the changes to the car's exterior are pretty subtle. Interestingly Hyundai has decided to make more extensive revisions to the interior.

2019 Kia Picanto GT pricing and specs

Kia has revealed its new turbocharged Picanto GT will be priced from $17,990 drive-away, just $500 more than the existing GT-Line variant. That extra outlay brings a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine, making 74kW and 172Nm. That's up from the 62kW and 122Nm you get in the naturally-aspirated 1.25L engine in the regular Picanto. Want more good news? It's mated to a five-speed manual, instead of a four-speed automatic. Huzzah!
