The Ferrari Portofino is the New Entry-Level Model Set to Replace the California

Ferrari has unexpectedly revealed a replacement to the California T ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show, dubbed the Ferrari Portofino.

Revealed as the Italian marque’s new entry-level model, the Portofino is powered by the firm’s now-familiar 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8, now delivering 590 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque from 3,000 to 5,200 rpm. This allows the supercar to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in a brisk 3.5 seconds and a top speed of around 320 km/h.

Ferrari says the V8 now utilizes new pistons and con-rods and features a redesigned intake. Additionally, there is a one-piece cast exhaust header designed to eliminate turbo lag and provide class-leading throttle response. These changes, combined with a new exhaust system and Variable Boost Management to adjust torque between gears, ensures the Portofino’s engine is more powerful the California T’s while still being more fuel efficient.

Other key mechanical modifications over the California T include the implementation of Ferrari’s third generation electronic rear differential as well as electric power steering. Elsewhere, the magnetorheological damping system has been uprated and is now more effective than ever. Perhaps most significant of all however is the Portofino’s use of a new all-aluminum chassis.

Stylistically, it would be an understatement to say the Portofino simply looks better than the California T, it actually looks like a proper Ferrari. Design inspiration has clearly been taken from the 812 Superfast and GTC4Lusso and makes for an altogether far prettier car with an edgy and aggressive front end. Like the California T and California before it, it also features a folding hardtop as standard. Read the rest of this entry »

All-New Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo From $96,200 In Canada

Porsche took several examples of the Panamera Sport Turismo and Turbo S E-Hybrid to British Columbia, Canada, for their international press launch.

Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo

Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo

This is where more than 300 automotive journalists, from 47 countries, had the chance to push them hard, over the course of two weeks, in the contrasting landscape that includes endless miles of coastline, spectacular views of the Rockies and Coast Mountains, and urban cityscape that shapes Victoria and Vancouver.

The most practical version of the Porsche Panamera, which in our humble opinion also happens to be the best looking one, debuted earlier this year at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Named the Panamera Sport Turismo, it features a shooting brake-style roofline, seating for five, and a very generous boot space. Prices for the car start from $96,200, but go for the Turbo version and you will have to pay at least $154,000. Read the rest of this entry »

All-New Ford F-22 F-150 Raptor From $300,000 In The U.S.

Ford has switched things up for this year’s EAA AirVenture Oshkosh event, as instead of creating a custom Mustang like usual, the automaker has designed a custom F-150 Raptor.

Ford F-22 F-150 Raptor

Ford F-22 F-150 Raptor

Set to be auctioned off at the annual EAA Gathering of Eagles on July 27, the 2017 F-150 Raptor fittingly takes inspiration from the Lockheed F-22 Raptor fighter jet and is the brainchild of Ford design manager Melvin Betancourt.

Chief among the exterior modifications are new carbon fiber wheel arches, a roof-mounted light bar, a distinctive silver, black and red wrap and custom wheels. An eye-catching front grille incorporating an F-22 Raptor model is also present.

Beneath the revised skin, the twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine has been tweaked by Ford Performance engineers and sports a Whipple intercooler and a number of other engine enhancements that lift power to 545 hp . Read the rest of this entry »

All-New 2017 Buick EV From $40,495 In The U.S.

The Chevrolet Bolt hasn’t exactly set the sales chart on fire but General Motor’s next electric vehicle could be a different story.

2017 Buick EV

2017 Buick EV

According to Inside EVs, the company could be developing a Buick crossover that is based on the Bolt.

Citing a “very trusted/known source” who reportedly attended a focus group in California, the publication says the model will largely be a badge-engineered crossover with unique exterior styling. That doesn’t sound too promising but the source noted the model resembled something like a next-generation Buick Encore.

The styling differences appeared to be enough that some people in the focus group couldn’t tell the two models were related. As the sourced noted, “Some completely trashed [the] Bolt EV and loved the Buick, so I guess the designers did a good job.”

Speaking of the design, the model reportedly has aggressive LED headlights and a floating roof. The overall dimensions largely carryover but the crossover is rumored to have additional rear seat legroom. Read the rest of this entry »

All-New 2017 Audi RS5 Coupe From €80,900 In Germany

Audi has officially launched the 2017 RS5 Coupe in Europe, which now gets a new twin-turbo V6 that’s been co-developed with Porsche.

The second generation of the RS5 is, according to Audi, the gran turismo model in their RS lineup, combining high everyday usability with an elegant, yet powerful presence.

The bodywork features a much wider and flatter front grille from the base models, additional air intakes next to the headlights and Audi 90 Quattro IMSA GTO-inspired fenders that are wider by 15mm (0.6 inches). As standard, the new RS5 Coupe comes with 19-inch wheels, with 20-inch alloys available as optional extras.

Under the bonnet lies an all-new twin-turbo 2.9-litre V6 which develops 450PS (444hp) and 600Nm (442.5 lb-ft) of torque, which is 170Nm (125.4 lb-ft) more than the previous model and available from just 1,900rpm. Zero to 62mph (100 km/h) takes place in 3.9 seconds, with the top speed limited to 250km/h (155mph) as standard, and 280km/h (174mph) if you tick the RS dynamic package in the options list.

1986 Audi B2 Coupe

Built by Audi between 1980 and 1988, the B2 Coupe still stands as one of Ingolstadt’s most beloved classics, even as a front-wheel drive model.

1986 Audi B2 Coupe

1986 Audi B2 Coupe

According to seller, this 1986 model posted to eBay is in “good to excellent condition”, and comes with approximately 123,489 miles (198,736 km) on its original digital cluster.

The ad also states that its Kenwood stereo with JBL speakers is in working condition, and that in the last 5,000 miles, maintenance on the car included a rebuilt cylinder head, new timing belt, water pump, roller, tensioner and head gasket, plus a new fuel distribution and pressure regulator to go with the new Bosch ignition coil.

As far as we can tell, the interior looks to be in pretty good condition, except for the mirror switch, sunroof handle and both trunk shocks, as pointed out by the seller.

All in all, we’re hoping this car is going to land with somebody who appreciates it for what it is but also for what it once was. While you could easily find more modern daily drivers for $4,500 (the asking price), few of them would have as much charisma as a B2 Coupe.

All-New Cadillac CTS-V Carbon Black Edition From ¥ 14,900,000 In Japan

Cadillac has just detailed the limited-edition CTS-V Carbon Black Edition available exclusively in Japan.

Cadillac CTS-V Carbon Black Edition

Cadillac CTS-V Carbon Black Edition

Japan is no stranger to receiving bespoke models from Cadillac and already has distinctive ATS and CTS offerings. The CTS-V Carbon Black Edition is perhaps the most eye-catching of all and is even more menacing than a U.S.-spec model.

For starters, Cadillac has installed the model with a carbon black kit that includes a black front diffuser and rear spoiler as well as matching side vents, diffuser and front grille. A set of gunmetal wheels also make the vehicle stand out. Customers will only be able to select between Sable Black and Crystal White Tri-Coat paint finishes.

Inside, the brand has outfitted the 16-way adjustable Recaro seats with Jet Black leather and Alcantara. Black is also present on the steering wheel, dash and parts of the center console.

A mere four examples will be produced, each priced at 14,900,000 yen ($133,000).

1965 Lincoln Continental Limousine

Limousines converted from sedans are becoming a thing of the past as those fortunate enough have been gravitating towards pimped-out SUVs and vans. That’s a bit of a shame, because long and low limos like this one are about as cool as they come.

1965 Lincoln Continental Limousine

1965 Lincoln Continental Limousine

What you’re looking at is a 1965 Lincoln Continental – not unlike the one from the opening of Entourage, but stretched longer and with a fixed roof instead of a standard wheelbase and drop top.

The classic limo was converted by Lehmann-Peterson, which executed the job so well that Ford extended its factory warranty to every one the independent Chicago-based coachbuilder made. And man, were they sweet. So sweet that celebrities and statesmen alike bought them up as fast as Lehmann-Peterson could make them.

President Lyndon Johnson had one. So did Senator Robert Kennedy, Governor Nelson Rockefeller, and even Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko. They were even more popular in show business, counting among its owners Elvis Presley, Sophia Loren, Spencer Tracy, Hugh Hefner, The Rolling Stones, and The Supremes. This one was owned by the one star who was cooler than all of them: the legendary Steve McQueen.

Of course McQueen was better known for driving himself around in Ferraris and Porsches, or riding his motorcycles. But some occasions called for a chauffeur, and for those occasions he had this unsurpassedly cool limo. It was decked out with every luxury available at the time, including a window divider and mechanically opening bar with crystal stemware.

It’s been immaculately preserved since McQueen’s time, and is now heading for the auction block in Santa Monica next month, where RM Sotheby’s and Auctions America project it will sell for $100-150k. That’s a lot more than you could spend on a Continental (or any Lincoln) these days, but then nothing Lincoln makes now is anywhere near this cool.

All-New 2017 Lexus CT200h From $31,250 In The U.S.

The Lexus CT200h has reached the end of the road in the United States as Car & Driver is reporting the hatchback will be dropped after the 2017 model year.

2017 Lexus CT200h

2017 Lexus CT200h

The CT200h was introduced in America at the 2010 New York Auto Show and was primarily designed to appeal to European customers.

Despite being the Lexus’ most affordable model with a base price of $31,250, the car never really caught on with consumers as the company sold around 15,000 units annually in the United States. However, recent competition from models such as the Audi A3 and Mercedes CLA has caused sales to dwindle and the company only moved 8,903 CT’s last year.

The CT200h will reportedly continue to be sold in other markets but in the United States the brand’s entry-level model will become the NX crossover which starts at $35,285.

As a refresher, the CT200h has hybridized powertrain that consists of a 1.8-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine and a small electric motor that produce a combined maximum output of 134 hp (135 PS). This enables the car to return 43 mpg city, 40 mpg highway, and 42 mpg combined. Those numbers are nothing to sneeze at but the $23,475 Toyota Prius beats them with 54 mpg city, 50 mpg highway, and 52 mpg combined.
