10 Geneva concepts we wish made production

Now the biggest, boldest concepts from the 2018 Geneva motor show have been revealed, and space has been made in dream garages for Supras, Lagondas, and M8 Gran Coupes, we cast a nostalgic eye back on some of the most memorable concepts from the last 20 years. These are the cars we believe should have earned a place in product portfolios from their respective manufacturers. Some were simply too fanciful to ever get a look in, while others fell to the might of a beancounter’s red pen.

RUF SCR revealed in Geneva

Almost exactly one year after revealing the reborn CTR in Geneva, RUF has whipped the covers off its big-money, lightweight take on the Porsche 911. Meet the SCR, a nod to another of its famous tuned Porsches from the 1970s. The original was released in 1978, with power from a 3.2-litre flat-six making 162kW. It ran with dark green paint and a prominent whale-tail spoiler, along with bigger cooling ducts all around.

Toyota 86: Turbocharging would require new platform

Turbocharging the Toyota 86 would require a great deal of work, making it incredibly unlikely to happen in the current generation. Speaking to CarAdvice in Geneva, Tetsuya Tada, chief engineer for the 86 and Supra, explained why the current 86 won't see a forced-induction powertrain. “When we launched 86, I got literally millions of questions from around the world of 'when would you be launching the turbo version?'” Tada said.

2007-2010 Holden Captiva diesel recalled

Holden has recalled the 2007-2010 Captiva, over concerns vehicles fitted with the 2.0-litre diesel could catch fire. According to the company, a fracture on the fuel-feed connector hose could make the hose disconnect, causing a fuel leak. If there is a leak, Holden says there's a risk of stalling or an engine bay fire. A total of 22,705 units are affected – a VIN list is attached here. Holden will contact owners of the affected vehicles, and advise them to have their car fixed by a dealer.
