Comentarios Desactivados en 2013 Porsche Panamera GTS Sedan
Saloon or sports car? Power or efficiency? Quite simply, there’s no decision to make. That’s because the Panamera and the Panamera 4 blend all these apparent contradictions into one sporty overall concept.
Standard features of the Panamera and the Panamera 4 include Bi-Xenon main headlights, the 18-inch Panamera wheels, the two single-tube tailpipes of the exhaust system and the automatic rear hatch.
Both models are equipped with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) as standard. In the Panamera, it transfers engine power to the rear axle; in the Panamera 4 to all four wheels via the active all-wheel drive of Porsche Traction Management (PTM).
Other standard features of the Panamera and Panamera 4 are cruise control, Tyre Pressure Monitoring (TPM), automatic climate control and the CDR audio system. Options include Porsche Communication Management (PCM), and the BOSE® Surround Sound System or the Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System.
Comentarios Desactivados en 2009 Porsche Boxster Base Red Convertible
Open-top driving is integral to Porsche history. It began back in 1948 with the No. 1. The convertible variant of the first 356 became a legend, as did its descendent, the Porsche 550 Spyder. In 1982, the first 911 Carrera model in cabriolet form was introduced to the road.
Two things that all open-top Porsche cars have in common are an urge for sporty acceleration and unlimited driving pleasure. The time has come to carry this tradition on into the future. The 911 Carrera S Cabriolet does just that.
That explains what motivates us; so let’s describe what drives the car: the 3.8-litre engine with direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus, which produces 400 hp at 7400 rpm. The 911 Carrera S Cabriolet completes the sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 187 mph.
Without question, the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet has remained faithful to [...]
Comentarios Desactivados en Dodge Charger, F-250 popular with car theives
The most theft-prone vehicle in America might be the Dodge Charger. Or it might be the Ford F-250 pickup truck.
Those are the contradictory conclusions of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the insurance industry-funded Highway Loss Data Institute.
Still, the government agency and private group agree that the theft of late-model vehicles is on a rapid decline in the United States. One reason: automakers’ increasing use of ignition immobilizers, which stop thieves from hot-wiring cars. Nearly 90 percent of 2012 models are equipped with them.
In a report released on Monday, NHTSA said the car stolen most often during the 2011 calendar year was the Charger, with 4.8 thefts for every 1,000 cars produced in 2011. It was followed by the Mitsubishi Galant, Hyundai Accent, Chevrolet Impala and Chevrolet HHR among vehicles with more than 5,000 units [...]
Comentarios Desactivados en BMW extends global sales lead over Audi, Mercedes in June
Global sales of BMW Group’s core brand rose faster in June than at Audi and Mercedes-Benz as demand from China and the United States helped the premium carmaker to extend a lead over the two rivals in the first six months of the year.
Sales at the brand were up 9 percent last month to 153,075, the group said today, compared with growth of 5 percent to 140,300 and 8 percent to 131,609 at Audi and Mercedes respectively.
Six-month sales at BMW brand rose 8 percent to 804,000 cars, expanding the lead over runner-up Audi to 24,000 from 11,000 after five months. Half-year sales at Audi and Mercedes rose 6 percent each to 780,500 and 694,000 respectively.
“BMW has stronger momentum than Audi and Mercedes, that won’t change in the second half,” said Hanover-based NordLB analyst Frank Schwope. “Design [...]
Comentarios Desactivados en Tesla to join Nasdaq 100 as Oracle defects to NYSE
Tesla Motors Inc., the world’s best-performing automotive stock this year, will join the Nasdaq-100 Index next week, filling the spot vacated by Oracle Corp., which is moving to the New York Stock Exchange.
The electric-car maker will be added to the gauge, which tracks the biggest companies on the Nasdaq, before the start of trading on July 15, Nasdaq OMX Group Inc. said in a statement Monday. Oracle, which last month said it will join the NYSE, is the biggest company to jump between the competing exchanges.
Shares of Tesla, the carmaker headed by billionaire Elon Musk, have more than tripled this year as the popularity of its new Model S sedan helped the company turn its first quarterly profit. Gaining entry to benchmarks tracked by investors is attractive to public companies because it provides a guaranteed shareholder base.
Comentarios Desactivados en Toyota Camry, Honda Civic inventories rise, report says
The Toyota Camry and the Honda Civic, the top-selling mid-size and compact cars in the U.S., face risks of reduced production as inventories of the models rise, an RBC Capital Markets report said.
Toyota’s Camry exceeded its seasonal historical average inventory by more than 15 days supply in June and Honda carried about 25 days more Civics than usual, Joseph Spak, a New York-based analyst for RBC, said in today’s report. Camry and Civic were the only models identified as at risk for reduced output among 16 of the top-selling vehicles in the U.S. market. General Motors Co., Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler Group LLC all added U.S. market share in the first six months of 2013, the first time that all three gained first-half share in 20 years. Models such as GM’s Chevrolet Cruze compact and Ford’s Fusion [...]

Comentarios Desactivados en Fiat exercises option to buy additional 3.3% of Chrysler shares
Fiat today exercised an option to raise its stake in Chrysler by 3.3 percent.
The move is part of CEO Sergio Marchionne’s step-by-step purchases intended to lead to full control of Chrysler and the creation of a merged company that would be able to compete better with industry leaders Toyota, General Motors and Volkswagen.
Fiat has been exercising options since mid-2012 to buy holdings of about 3.3 percent from the VEBA, a medical-benefits trust for the U.S. carmaker’s retirees.
Including today’s purchase, Fiat has exercised three of its six-monthly options, increasing its stake to 68.49 percent.
Fiat has said it wants full control of Chrysler, which would give it access to some of Chrysler’s cash flow for investments in new models.
Chrysler has become Fiat’s most reliable profit generator as the Italian company struggles to end losses in Europe [...]
