Porsche 911 GT2 RS sets Nürburgring lap record

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the new king of the 'Ring, lapping the famed Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit in 6 minutes 47.3 seconds. Not only is it the fastest 911 of all time, the GT2 RS is also the quickest production vehicle around the 'Ring - some five seconds quicker than the Lamborghini Huracan Performante (6 minutes 52.01 seconds) and a whole 10 seconds quicker than Porsche's own manic 918 Spyder hybrid hypercar (6 minutes 57 seconds).

Polestar declares 'the end' to co-branding Volvo cars

Polestar has reminded the world that it will soon step out as an independent marque with a simple and slightly mysterious post on social media. The company didn't include any descriptive text with its Instagram post (above), leaving us to speculate the split between Polestar and Volvo is now complete. In June this year, Volvo confirmed speculation Polestar would soon become its own "separately-branded electrified global high performance car company”. Above: New Polestar badge.

Saudi Arabia finally lifting ban on women driving

Saudi Arabia will finally lift its oppressive, and bravely protested, driving ban on women, by royal decree from King Salman. The decree comes less than two years after Saudi women were first allowed to vote, in municipal elections. According to the BBC, government ministries are to prepare reports within 30 days and the order will be implemented by June 2018.

MG GS: first Chinese car to get ANCAP five-star rating

Crash safety scorer ANCAP has awarded the updated 2017 MG GS crossover SUV a five-star rating - the first time a vehicle from China has hit the mark. It's a fairly significant milestone, given we're seeing a steady rise in the number of China-made brands and vehicles on offer. Previous Chinese cars tested by ANCAP, which failed to cut the mustard, include the four-star Haval H9 (2015), three-star LDV G10 (2015) and two-star Great Wall Steed (2016).
