Ford Ranger Raptor debuts in Supercars recovery trim

The big new Ford Ranger Raptor has made its debut in racetrack form today, ahead of this weekend's Sandown 500 event in Victoria. Of course, when we say racetrack, we don't mean it'll be competing. The Ranger Raptor is no Superutes contender (at least not yet), but rather the Supercars series' official new recovery vehicle.

Tesla freeing up battery capacity for potential hurricane victims

Tesla will free up any software-locked battery capacity in cars owned by people in Hurricane Florence's path, thanks to its over-the-air update system. Although it's not offered anymore, the company at one point sold a Model S 60. The cheapest variant shared its battery with the 75kWh car, with the extra 25 per cent battery power locked only through software.
