Porsche 550

It is official, though unpleasant: CEO Matthias Mueller has announced that there are no plans for a new Porsche 550. Mueller said that any plans for a new version of its vintage Porsche 550 sports car will be slipped back “into the desk” for the present time, which is better than tossing the idea into the trash.

Porsche Macan SUV

The 2013 Porsche Macan SUV has finally been spied testing in Germany! Now that the brakes have been applied to speculation and renderings, what do you think of the coupe-ish luxury SUV from Porsche? While it is quite similar to its sibling (Cayenne), there are some distinguishing features.

Lamborghini Urus Shows Off at Beijing Auto Show

Lamborghini has unveiled the Urus--a controversial SUV concept that has left rumor mills with smoking wheels! At first glance, the Urus’s front end is decidedly Lamborghini, but the pronounced SUV shape is somehow difficult to swallow from a sports car that literally hugs the ground!

This concept SUV marks the brand’s first attempt at one since 1985 when the LM002 emerged. Hopefully, the Urus will fare better than the all-but-forgotten LM002!

Mansory Amplifies the Lamborghini Aventador

If there is a new hypercar out there, Mansory will eventually get their hands on it for some tweaking—meet the Mansory Lamborghini Aventador!
