On January 25, 2011, in CARS, RIDES, Syndicated, by SOURCE: Car and Driver
If an entry-level special-edition 911 floats your boat, hopefully you like black. As the Porsche 997 is entering the autumn of its life cycle—we expect its successor, the 991, to debut this September at the Frankfurt auto show—the marketing team in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen still is coming up with ways to keep the current model attractive.

2011 Porsche Panamera 4 – Short Take Road Test

On October 27, 2010, in CARS, LUXURY, RIDES, Syndicated, by SOURCE: Car and Driver
The V6 Panamera may have two fewer cylinders, but it doesn’t skimp on much else. Sticking a 3.6-liter V-6 engine into the Porsche Panamera’s ample frame would seem to be as good a performance recipe as chopping off a couple of engines from a Boeing 747, but in reality the base Panamera is still plenty fast. Okay, so it doesn’t leap off the line and hurtle toward the horizon like its Turbo sibling, but our all-wheel-drive Panamera 4 still posted a 0-to-60-mph time of 5.0 seconds and covered the standing quarter-mile in 13.8 seconds. Those are great numbers, and they’re backed up by a 70-to-0-mph braking figure of 158 feet and skidpad grip of 0.96 g. For comparison, the BMW 740i takes 5.1 seconds to reach 60 mph, manages 0.88 g, and stops from 70 mph in 163 feet. Keep Reading: 2011 Porsche Panamera 4 – Short Take Road Test Related posts:

2011 BMW 535i – Long-Term Road Test Intro

On October 26, 2010, in CARS, LUXURY, RIDES, Syndicated, by SOURCE: Car and Driver
2011 BMW 535i We hate the steering, but like pretty much everything else about this long-termer. Date: September 2010 Months in Fleet: 4 months Current Mileage: 18,000 miles Average Fuel Economy: 24 mpg Average Range: 444 miles Service: $0 Normal Wear: $9 Repair: $0 When it comes to ordering long-term test vehicles, we often choose stuff that’s fared well in previous evaluations, and we usually load them up with options—case in point: our $100,000-plus long-term BMW 750Li xDrive. The idea, of course, is to see if our infatuation with a new model can stand the test of time; and to test the newest and best gadgets and technologies.

2011 BMW X3 – First Drive Review

On October 15, 2010, in CARS, LUXURY, RIDES, Syndicated, by SOURCE: Car and Driver
2011 BMW X3 More refined and larger, the X3 still satisfies. The essence of BMW’s ongoing success is the creation of a vehicle that’s good out of the gate, followed by continuous refinement and improvement. The 3-series, a perennial 10Best winner, is of course the ultimate example of this formula. And the new BMW X3 seems to be the latest case in point.
