Henrik Fisker continues SUV tease

Fisker has continued playing a slow, drawn-out game of strip poker with its upcoming rival to the Tesla Model Y, today sharing a picture of the car's roof and rear. Guys, reveal it already. Where Elon Musk uses Twitter to share news about Tesla, Henrik Fisker uses his personal Facebook page. Twice this week he's posted pictures of the sub-$40k crossover, stopping just short of revealing it in full.

2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 engine details revealed

Power and torque figures for the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 have been confirmed ahead of the car's release later this year. Under the bonnet is a 5.2-litre supercharged V8 with 567kW (760hp) of power and 847Nm of torque. That's significantly more than the 522kW (700hp) or so the company promised when it unveiled the GT500 at this year's Detroit motor show. In January, Ford said the GT500 would also feature a carbon-fibre driveshaft and a seven-speed Tremec dual-clutch transmission.

Renault Megane: Non-'Renault Sport' models axed in Australia

Renault has removed the non-Renault Sport Megane from its Australian range, as it looks to move the model upmarket and put the RS brand in the spotlight. Although some mainstream hatch, wagon and sedan stock remains in dealerships, the model has been removed from the Renault Australia website, leaving only the GT, GT-Line and RS hatch the brand considers 'Renault Sport Megane' models.

Holden Astra sedan, Sportwagon axed

Holden has removed the best-selling Astra variant, the sedan, from its line-up, with no clear successor in sight. The slow-selling Sportwagon has also been dropped from the range, although both cars will still appear online and in showrooms while remaining stock is shifted. Speaking with CarAdvice, a Holden spokesperson said the company has been managing stock closely and dealers "weren't exactly overburdened" with cars at last check, so we'd suggest neither model will be available for long.
