Random Musings on New Stuff

Filed under: — GM Guy @ 7:44 pm

A week ago I saw my first Mercedes CLS on the street, and I have to say it was the most exciting vehicle that I have seen in a long time. Gliding past my position, it was super elegent, sexy, powerful looking - everything that a mid-60K priced sedan (sorry, 4-door coupe) should be.

At Autoweek.com, they have news of a 2008 Porsche Panamera, a four door “replacement” for the long gone 928. Not much is know about the actual architecture of this deviation from the current mid-rear engine placement line of Porsches, but it may share a rear-wheel-drive platform with a new VW sized between the Passat and Phaeton. Slated to have the V8 used in the Cayenne, this would be the next addition to the Porsche model mix after the Boxter Coupe and would be built alongside the Cayenne at the Lepzig factory in Germany. Go to Autoweek & check out the photo.

Not available online yet, the current issue of Road and Track magazine has an article on the special cars owned by Ralph Lauren, including the McLaren F1 and five other important, beautiful cars.

BTW, Ralph has three (3!) of them. I’ll wear my Polo shirts with a little more pride knowing my buying habits have supported his auto-art collection!
