It’s official: Check out the 550hp 2017 Porsche Panamera

Porsche has shrugged the silk off of the new 2017 Panamera, its redesigned four-door that promises lashings of performance for those who need more space than a 911. Revamped with styling borrowed from the 2017 Porsche 911 - which we drove earlier this month - along with the latest Cayman and 718 Boxster, the new Panamera gets a swooping, coupe-esque roofline but still has room inside for four.

2017 Jaguar F-PACE First Drive – Clever Kitty

2017 Jaguar F-PACE First Drive – Clever Kitty

Jaguar may be new to the SUV segment, but there are no allowances for tardiness: the 2017 F-PACE has to land a knock-out punch to heavyweight rivals and prove the famed British marque is about more than just coupes and heritage. Falling somewhere in-between competitors like the BMW X3 and X5, and Audi Q3 and Q5, in size, the F-PACE doesn't take the easy route of raiding Land Rover's parts bin but instead forges its own path on both the highway and in the rough stuff.

2016 Mercedes-Benz S550 Review – Silicon Valley on wheels

2016 Mercedes-Benz S550 Review – Silicon Valley on wheels

It's a blessing and a curse to be the benchmark by which all others are judged, but the Mercedes-Benz S-Class shoulders its obligations well. Launched first in 1972, and now in its sixth generation, the beefy sedan has always possessed a perhaps unusual duality. On the one hand, it's the go-to vehicle for comfortable wafting, but on the other it's a high-tech test bed for the latest and greatest Stuttgart's geniuses can come up with.

Mercedes-Benz G550 4×4² makes its US debut in 2017

Mercedes-Benz's G-Class line of SUVs, while some of the most capable off-road vehicles available, are often relegated to little more than expensive grocery haulers for the super rich and famous. It certainly isn't going to change this image, but Mercedes has revealed that the most high-end model of line, the G550 4×4², will be coming to the US in 2017.

2017 Volvo S90 first-drive – Sweden declares war

Volvo may be too laid back to call out its German rivals, but make no mistake, the 2017 S90 is a serious gauntlet thrown down in the midsize luxury segment. Determined to prove the XC90 was no fluke, and instead the first step in an aggressive full-range refresh, the 2017 Volvo S90 takes much of its SUV cousin's charm and condenses it into a form-factor better suited to take on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5 Series.

The Ferrari 458 Speciale is already a rare sight, reserved only for buyers with the deepest of pockets.

What you see here is the 458 MM Speciale, a Ferrari that features a number of body and design customizations, and is, simply put, one of the best looking cars to come out of Italy in some time.
