LA Show star Beetle Cabriolet now available to order in UK
The new Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet made its debut at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. The model is now available to order in the UK ahead of the first cars arriving in April. It’s the latest chapter in a unique automotive story that started with the original Beetle Convertible in 1949 and continued with the New Beetle Cabriolet of 2002. Over 330,000 original Beetle Cabriolet cars were produced from 1949 to 1980, and over 230,000 New Beetle Cabriolets were built in just eight years.

New Porsche Cayman unveiled
Porsche proudly unveiled the third generation Cayman. The new Cayman aims once more to set the class benchmark for driving performance; its longer wheelbase, all-new chassis and lower weight further optimising the established dynamic credentials of the mid-engined sports coupé.

Since its debut in 2005, the Cayman has earned a particular reputation as a driver’s car. For the latest model, the two-seater has been newly developed from the ground up and – after the 911 Carrera and Boxster roadster – is the third sports car model series from Porsche to feature innovative lightweight body design.
Consequently, the new Cayman is up to 30kg lighter than the previous model, depending on the specific version and equipment, and offers up to 15 per cent greater fuel efficiency – despite its increased engine output and driving performance.
