Porsche boss Matthias Mueller has revealed plans for new variants on the Porsche Panamera – including a Panamera Coupe – and more new models.

The third Dacia model for the UK – the Dacia Sandero Stepway – a rugged compact crossover based on the Sandero will cost from £7,995.

We have video of the new McLaren P1 – suitably camouflaged – out testing in Spain as McLaren fettles its Ferrari F70 basher.
