Porsche Redesigns the Boxster

Porsche has always done a great job at blending both sport and luxury into their vehicles. Their high-end models such as the Cayman and 911 continue to beat super cars on the track while offering an elegant interior which faster cars often lack. Their lowest level sports car which is the Boxster recently received a much needed upgrade both to the looks and engine. The new Porsche Boxster received

Cadillac is Returning to Business as Usual

Cadillac (in anthropomorphic form) experienced consecutive heart attacks in 1985 and 1986. The company may not have publicized it, but the release of the BMW M5 and the Mercedes AMG ‘Hammer’ (respective to the previously mentioned years) rattled the core of the company named after the discoverer of Detroit. In the years before their release, Cadillac’s revered badge graced the hood of most luxury

Cadillac is as Adept as Always

It is no secret that Cadillac has not been thriving as of late. It is unfortunate, because General Motors (new GM) really turned their tides after the financial collapse. Chevrolet has received repeated praise for their post bankruptcy craftsmanship; and their sales have been proportional to the plaudits. What has not been as thoroughly promulgated, is that Cadillac is and has been building a whol

Lapse in Luxury

In the midst of, droves of carbon copied catastrophes selling like napkins after a pie eating contest (circa 1985), most manufacturers were finding ways to cut costs; to up production. In some cases, even high end brands were receiving the surgical scalpel excess-ectomy treatment. Few decided to go in the other direction, creating a lull in land roving luxury (land rover as in car… though the now

Aston Martin: Coach Building Pedigree

Aston Martin recently branched out. Typically, they only made coupes for for those willing to spend over $100,000 on a car. In that field they are second to none. Aston Martin has a pedigree of style incorporated into each and every one of their cars; they then customize their cars to incorporate each of the owner’s direct specifications in terms of interior, Q is an interior coach builder for its

Aston Martin Rapide: Setting Precedents

The Aston Martin Rapide is the company’s only 4 door option. Soon they will be introducing the DBX, which will be their first SUV. The concept they released earlier this year at Geneva is not the final design, merely a preview of things to come. One of which, being an all electric powertrain for their upcoming SUV. Before the SUV is released, the Aston Martin Rapide plans to set yet another preced

Electric Aston Martins: Shocking

Aston Martin is famed for making some of the most iconic cars in history. Granted, most of that is due to marketing and being able to call itself the first brand one thinks of after hearing OO7, James Bond, spy car and probably even books or movies starring OO7 that do not even feature British made supercars. However, one word that is not associated with Aston Martin is electric, unless it was ele

Cadillac Seeks to Strengthen Hold on U.S. Car Market

Cadillac is shifting toward these growing auto segments in a concession to dwindling Cadillac sales in the U.S. car market, along with the surge in SUV and crossover vehicle popularity among Ameri

Armoured Vehicles: Sometimes it Is Necessary

As a mere peasant, I have not been introduced to a world where an insanely expensive armoured vehicle is necessary. I am not very important (yet), and most people I know like me. The ones that do not are definitely not going to kill me over it. But, there has been a market for it for 100s of years now. Leonardo da Vinci designed an armoured vehicle in the 15th Century, but it was a failure. The w

OnStar: Worth the Money?

It is no coincidence that GM (General Motors) comes standard with OnStar. GM actually owns the company. That said, they are looking forward to your extending your membership. To be honest, their Protection plan doesn’t really impress me, and the Guidance plan is getting more creative if nothing else. But what I think might be worth the money is OnStar’s Security package. The Protection
