Subaru’s Gunma Main Plant, which will produce both the Subaru and Toyota versions, has undergone a significant re-fitting to cope with the extra capacity. Subaru plans to produce the Impreza at the same plant by March 2013.

The new generation of the Porsche Boxster will be making its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show at 09:30 on March 6 in Hall 1, alongside the Panamera GTS and 911 Carrera Cabriolet that will receive their European premieres.

New Boxster


The new Porsche Boxster arrives in the UK later this Spring offering open-top driving enthusiasts a new generation of the benchmark roadster. The technical highlight of the new Boxster is its all-new lightweight body, new flat-six engines with direct petrol injection, a completely revised chassis and evolutionary styling.

Considerably lower weight, a longer wheelbase, widened track and larger wheels significantly enhance the driving dynamics of the mid-engined sports car. These attributes, combined with many other new features including electro-mechanical power steering, result in the new Boxster not only offering superior performance but also up to 15 per cent greater fuel efficiency.

Aston Martin Racing hones and improves the Vantage GT4 E-mail
Saturday, 03 March 2012 02:25

Gaydon, 2 March 2012 – With the latest Aston Martin Vantage road car set to debut at next week’s Geneva Motor Show, a revised version of its closest circuit-racing sibling made a debut appearance of its own at Silverstone on Friday (2 March). The 2012 Aston Martin Vantage GT4 features an all-new aerodynamic package plus further improvements to the rollcage and fuel tank.

For the first time, the Vantage GT4 gets a carbon fibre rear wing, working in conjunction with a larger front splitter to increase downforce for greater dynamic performance, while also adding visual tension to the muscular Vantage bodywork. The re-designed rollcage conforms to the latest FIA regulations and improves access and legroom, while the mid-mounted, 115-litre fuel tank lowers the centre of gravity for better weight distribution. The fuel tank’s twin quick-fill entries in the rear quarter-lights are directly carried over from the recently launched Vantage GT3.

2 March 2012, Gaydon:  2012 marks the fifth anniversary of an independently owned Aston Martin, one of the world's most acclaimed manufacturers of luxury sports cars. Fittingly, 2012 will also be the year that the new V12 Zagato makes its debut as a production car demonstrating that now, more than ever before, Aston Martin is at the forefront of bespoke manufacturing, the new dynamic in the luxury marketplace.

The past twelve months have seen Aston Martin's global dealership network expand further into new markets, cementing the brand's appeal to aficionados of dynamic driving, sporting luxury and bespoke design. China continues to play an important role. Since entering the market in 2008, Aston Martin has opened seven dealerships, with a flagship location in Shanghai's Pudong district, the largest ever Aston Martin dealership. This year, 13 additional showrooms are due to open in China.  Together they are targeting to increase retail sales in the region from 190 in 2011 to around 700 in 2012.
