2017 Porsche Panamera





This looks great.
I posted a couple of pictures of it a few days ago. These are the official ones.
And we get to see the interior too.
Which seems to be the perfect blend of "typical Porsche" and futuristic.
A true Porsche design for the 21st Century, really.

This pretty much fixes everything that was wrong with the first generation.
Which was pretty awkward, bloated, clumsy etc... This is just great.

Panamera S is powered by a new 440 V6.
While the "Turbo" model
 gets a new V8 with 550!

The new Panamera is also slightly larger than the outgoing model.

There will be more versions, probably including a plug-in Hybrid as well a less powerful base V6 model.

But the big news will be the all new wagon version.
And that will also be coming to the US.

I can't wait for this....

2017 Ford Fusion





The model pictured above is the new Sport version.
It comes with a 2.7 Liter Turbo V6 with 325HP and AWD.

I really like the Fusion. I think it is one of the very best mid size car available in the US.
It drives and looks great. (It also has a more European feel than any VWs sold here.)

The changes to the front and rear do not ruin the great design. Thank God.

Inside, it looks like the main change is in the center console. Where the shifter has now disappeared.


 Here are a couple of pictures of the current version.
So we can all remember the recent past...
