Nissan GT-R50 confirmed for production

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.

Opel: PSA driving further electrification

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.
