On a technicality, no less.
A peek at the work that went into Porsche's latest concept car.
The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Concept
was designed to give us a hint as to the future of Porsche design in general and the next-generation Panamera in particular. Obviosuly, the future of Porsche is a pretty big deal to us. So we're definitely interested to see Porsche's bigwigs explain just what went into the Panamera Sport Turimos' genesis.
Why? Because the C7 'Vette is coming soon.
Normally, visitors to Chevrolet's Bowling Green, Kentucky assembly plant can take a tour of the factory and catch a glimpse of all the new Corvettes being pieced together. In fact, between 40,000 and 50,000 people a year take advantage of GM's generosity. But if you've been thinking about touring the Bowling Green plant, you'd better act fast, because come September 14th, Chevy is shutting the doors to the public.
And thus finally fulfill a childhood dream.
If at any point in your life—even if it was only for an hour—you've liked both cars and Batman, you probably fantasized about making your own Batmobile. Well, that's one of the things that makes this job awesome: Sometimes, you really can make your dreams come true.
In honor of The Dark Knight
Returns Rises, the final chapter in Christopher Nolan's genre-redefining Batman trilogy, we decided to commission our own Batmobile in conjunction with our sibling magazine RIDES. We can't reveal all the details of the car just yet—we're saving them until the print edition of RIDES reaches newsstands in a few weeks—a keen eye can probably make out quite a few of the details and features we threw in. We will tell you this, however: It is indeed based on a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. That's all you're getting out of us for now.
V8 power, rear-wheel-drive. Thank you, Lord.
It's official: Chevrolet is bringing a rear-wheel-drive, V8-powered performance sedan back to GM's United States stable. You can call it the Chevy SS.
