Panamera Wagon is Nice, But Porsche Dealers Still Want More From the Sedan

2018 Panamera Sport Turismo hatch open

Impressed but but completely won over by the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo, Porsche’s dealers are still clamoring for another version of the all-new Porsche Panamera sedan.

The Panamera sedan is the dream car of a lot of aspiring men, but the fact that it only seats four people makes it less practical than most mainstream sedans. Essentially a wagon version of the Panamera, the Sport Turismo addresses that problem by offering seating for five and a lot more cargo room to boot.

However, as versatile as the is Panamera Sport Turismo is, there is still a strong aversion to wagons in many parts of the world, especially North America. The fact that it’s the only Panamera model to offer five seats makes many Porsche’s dealers unhappy.

Joe Lawrence, COO of Porsche Cars North America Inc, told :

“It’s fair to say that dealers would like to see [five seats] also available in the sedan. That’s something we’re discussing, and we’ll see what the future holds.”

Would five seats make you more likely to buy a Porsche Panamera sedan? Let us know in the comments below.

New, 2020 Lincoln Corsair SUV, luxury SUV

Lincoln has unveiled the all-new, 2020 Lincoln Corsair, the replacement for the MKC.

As the company’s contender in the crowded compact luxury crossover segment, the Corsair is a lot more stylish and sophisticated than the MKC, borrowing many styling cues from the new Nautilus, Aviator, and Navigator. I fact, I would go as far as to call it a baby Aviator.

The Corsair has an attractive exterior, but it’s the interior that makes the biggest statement. It comes standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Wi-Fi across all trims and phone-as-key technology that allows owners to keep their key at home and use their smartphone instead, while an optional 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and wireless charging adds more functionality. Exotic leather colors and shapely wooden inserts lend greatly to its classy atmosphere.

The options list also includes 24-way adjustable seats with massage and ambient lighting, a massive panoramic glass roof, and 14-speaker Revel audio system

At launch, the new Corsair will give buyers two engine options. There is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit that produces 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque and an optional, slightly more powerful 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 280 hp and 310 lb-ft. A plug-in hybrid model will join the lineup later on.

All Corsair models get Lincoln’s basic suite of safety features, which includes automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-keep assist. Adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, reverse brake assist, and automatic park assist are optional.

Sales of the new, 2020 Lincoln Corsair begin in fall 2019. Did Lincoln do a good job?

Audi e-tron GT electric sedan concept

Telsa’s popular sedan will not go unanswered.

Having kicked off its electric vehicle blitz with the e-tron SUV, Audi is now gearing up to introduce an electric sedan that will rival the Tesla Model 3.

Speaking to at the Geneva Motor Show, Audi design boss Marc Lichte revealed that German automaker will release the new model sometime in 2023. It’s expected to be about the same size as the A4 and will ride on same PPE platform as the upcoming E-tron GT.

“There will be [electric] SUVs and low-floor sporty cars such as the E-tron GT, which is our ‘halo’ car,” Lichte stated. “There will be an E-tron GT in the [A4- sized] segment as well. We’re working on this right now.”

Audi’s Tesla Model-fighting electric sedan won’t arrive until Audi releases the e-tron Sportback electric SUV and the smaller Q4 e-tron SUV, which the company predicts will be one of its most popular electric vehicles, with sales on par with the Q3 crossover.

Bentley Continental GT V8 Coupe, Convertible

The GT V8 is fast despite having a downsized engine.

Bentley has given its Continental GT Coupe and GT Convertible a new powertrain that promises better fuel economy while delivering impeccable performance.

Doing away with the W12 TSI engine of the regular Continental GT, the new GT Continental V8 variants feature a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that produces 542 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque, allowing the coupe to accelerate to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.9 seconds before topping out at 198 mph (319 km/h). The convertible is a tenth of a second slower to 60 mph but has the same top speed.

Drivers can travel more than 500 miles on a single tank, thanks in part to the new engine’s ability to shut off four of its cylinders when they’re not needed.

Designers gave the Continental GT Coupe and GT Convertible V8 badging and a unique set of 20-inch 10-spoke painted alloy wheels, while interior highlights include twenty-way adjustable leather seats, Crown Cut Walnut trim, a 12.3-inch touchscreen for infotainment duties, and a 650 watt 10-speaker Bentley Audio system that pumps out a powerful 650 watts of entertainment.

Buyers can spruce up their ride even more with a range of exterior colors and interior upholstery configurations and the choice of other wheels up to 22 inches in size.

The Bentley Continental GT V8 models go on sale in the third quarter of 2019.
