The Porsche Macan is about to undergo a mid-cycle update. The latest prototypes are wearing barely any camouflage gear, which suggests the debut can't be far.

Volkswagen is working on a new version of its Golf GTI based on the racing version developed for the TCR International Series. It's destined to be the fastest and most powerful GTI to date.

Aston Martin has confirmed it will add GT3 and GT4 race versions of its new Vantage. They will replace, respectively, the hugely successful V12 Vantage GT3 and V8 Vantage GT4 based on the previous-generation Vantage.
