2015 Kia K900 First-drive

You can’t accuse Kia of not setting itself ambitious challenges, and the 2015 K900 is unquestionably its most provocative play in the US so far.

You may not have heard of the Lexus F SPORT brand, but the Japanese luxury car company thinks models like the LS 460 F SPORT will change that. Taking every discrete executive's favorite sleeper-sedan and throwing some LFA-inspired sports magic at it, the LS 460 F SPORT may not give those in Mercedes-Benz's AMG division or their counterparts at BMW's M Sport labs sleepless nights quite yet, but it's still one of the biggest shake-ups to the Lexus brand since it expanded into SUVs.

As a geek among geeks in San Francisco, there should be nothing holding me back; as a vocal advocate of wearables, I ought to be flying the flag with my fifteen-hundred-dollar early-adopter beacon. So what's taking the gloss off Glass?
