This week’s Autocar has a 10-page BMW 3 Series special - we’ve driven the new car in prototype form, and have the verdict on whether it’s got its mojo back. 

Over at Mercedes-Benz, meanwhile, there’s a £9 billion plan to electrify its lineup, as the industry switches to electric power. 

There’s a duo of drop-top news pieces - Ferrari’s plans to bring back in the Targa Top, as well as more details on the upcoming Porsche 911 Speedster. 

From the sensible: Volkswagen’s self-driving plans have been laid bare - to the ridiculous: Aston Martin’s Q division seeks more mad one-off projects. Take your pick. 

Also in this issue

After our go in the new 3-Series, we also had a drive in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class - has it finally got the engine it deserves?

Two goliaths are also on test - the plug-in hybrid Range Rover Sport P400e, and the ferocious Ford Ranger Raptor.
