Porsche's new 911 Carrera S was always going to be faster than the model it replaces, but the difference is quite substantial, even though there's only a 23-horse power differential between the two. Porsche has an official Nürburgring lap time for the car, and it's a full 5.0 seconds faster than the outgoing model.

Toyota has been spotted testing its next-generation Highlander and the new family hauler looks to be growing in size. It's due on the market as a 2020 model, meaning it will arrive at the same time as several rivals including the redesigned Ford Explorer and the new Hyundai Palisade and Kia Telluride twins.

Lincoln will get its own EV based on Ford's Mustang-inspired electric crossover. All Lincoln will say about the vehicle is that it will have an elegant design.
