Photos & Video: Porsche unveils Taycan electric car
  0-62 in 2.8s, 280-miles of range
Porsche has unveiled today its highly-anticipated first all-electric car, the Taycan, and it looks very much like the Mission E Prototype and exhibits impressive performance. Porsche is sticking with its traditional naming convention, calling these high-power models Turbo and Turbo S even though, obviously, neither has a turbocharger. The Turbo S's numbers are big: 750 horsepower and 774 lb-ft of torque, and a price starting at $186,350. The less expensive, $152,250 Turbo will have 670 horses and 626 lb-ft of torque.
Four great off roaders and one sweet AWD sedan
  by Ali Arsham
At a recent press event, we got a chance to test the off-road abilities of a few new vehicles. What we discovered is that all of them had strengths and weaknesses and some surprised us.
  • Range Rover HSE P400e
  • Ford Ranger Lariat 4x4
  • Chevrolet Silverado Custom 4WD Trail Boss
  • Toyota RAV4 Adventure
  • Volkswagen Arteon 2.0T SEL R-Line 4Motion
26 times from 0-200 km/h and back
  The new Porsche Taycan demonstrates its staying power
Performance typical for the brand that can be reproduced virtually as required: the Porsche Taycan’s electric powertrain is designed to enable it to reach full power output even when accelerating multiple times in direct succession. Numerous hot laps around a circuit are no problem for the first fully electric sports car from Zuffenhausen. In an initial test, a pre-series version of this 440 kW (600 PS) all-wheel drive car accelerated from 0–200 km/h 26 times in succession. 
We drive the Chevrolet Silverado 2.7 turbo
  by Ali Arsham
The truck market provides huge profits and consequently there is tough competition to get you to select each brand.  Chevrolet thinks that the new Silverado is the best. While we can’t make that decision after driving one example of the Silverado without driving the competition, we can tell you that the Silverado is one sweet truck. Our model was the LT trim level with the new 2.7 liter four cylinder. 
Chevy unveils C8 mid-engine Corvette
  Takes Corvette to new level
Chevrolet officially introduced the first-ever mid-engine Corvette supercar late Thursday night outside Los Angeles starting at under $60,000. The most anticipated car of the year, the long-rumored Corvette C8 carries the legendary “Stingray” badge. Even as the C8 relocates the engine amidships like an Italian sports car in a move to give it more nimble handling, the car does not lose its signature V-8
We drive the Honda Passport Elite AWD
  by Ali Arsham
Honda makes some of the best cars in the world and they are also focused on the huge SUV market and their latest creation, the Passport, is a sweet ride.  Honda already has many SUVs in their fleet but the Passport was designed to be more rugged looking and adventurous. Most people don’t buy SUVs to go off roading and do adventurous stuff; they just want to look like they are active while on their way to the mall. The Passport offers rugged styling that captures its role as an adventure vehicle. 
The Porsche Taycan visits Shanghai
  Three demo runs in Shanghai, USA and UK
A still camouflaged Taycan prototype is making three appearances on three continents in the period of three weeks, visiting China, the UK and the US – each important sales markets for the first all-electric sports car from Porsche. The livery on the roof is a tribute to each of the guest countries: in Shanghai the prototype featured a dragon graphic. Behind the wheel: Li Chao, a driver from the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia.

We drive the Lexus NX300h
  by Ali Arsham
Lexus wants you to choose them when you are considering buying an SUV. They have a wide range of luxury SUVs from small to large and the NX seems to be one of those that appeals to a large audience.  They sell a lot of them and you certainly see them in parking lots all over the place so we were curious to learn more. The NX300h has been refreshed recently. The entire front fascia of the new NX has been cleaned up, with the upper portion of the grille and the front bumpers redesigned to blend into the hood and front doors.
