Porsche has cooked up a new Cayenne Coupe variant to fill the wide gap between the Turbo and Turbo S E-Hybrid. It's called the Cayenne Turbo GT, and it's available exclusively with the Cayenne Coupe body style. It's also the fastest crossover of any kind around the Nürburgring.

France's Alpine will be transformed into an electric performance brand, with the first of its new EVs due in 2024. Alpine has previewed three EVs it has in the pipeline, and one of them is a sports car being developed with Lotus.

A new generation of the Opel Astra twinned with the latest Peugeot 308 and DS 4 is on the way. Development is in the final stages meaning a reveal should take place soon.
