It was only last November that the covers came off Porsche's redesigned 992-generation 911, but already the German firm has unveiled the open-top version of the car, which it likes to call a Cabriolet. Like the coupe, the convertible is being introduced for the 2020 model year and initially will come in Carrera S and Carrera 4S guise only.

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled a redesigned CLA. The new car is both longer and wider than the model it replaces, and it also has a much more high-tech cabin thanks to a dual-screen interface, touchpad surface, and Mercedes' MBUX infotainment system with natural speech voice activation.

New, much more revealing photos of BMW's updated 7-Series have surfaced. The update represents a mid-cycle refresh for the sixth-generation 7-Series, which was launched for 2016, and the changes see the BMW flagship sedan take on a much more distinctive look.
