2018 Paris motor show: Hits and misses

Another Paris motor show done and dusted, and suddenly we find ourselves wondering... will there be many, or any, more to come? While this year's show brought us some beautiful concepts and big unveilings, the show seemed... a shadow of its former self. Only time will tell. Among the highlights this year were the exceptionally retro 911 Speedster, Peugeot's heart-starting e-Legend concept, and the big preview of things to come for Skoda, the Vision RS.

BMW 8 Series: 'The time is right to re-enter this segment'

With the covers taken off at the 2018 Paris motor show, and the new BMW 8 Series sitting resplendent among the raft of new product on the BMW stand, you could be forgiven for asking: what took so long? Indeed, with the long-lasting affection for the '90s 840i and 850i, it does seem like BMW has taken its time returning to a segment that so characterised its previous success.
