Car subscriptions are here, but there’s no one-size-fits-all

Once upon a time in America, you went to your local auto dealership, gave them a wad of cash, and drove a car off the lot. Then came leasing, and drivers became temporary stewards of their cars in return for three year flexibility.

2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo First Drive: A rocket not a wagon

2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo First Drive: A rocket not a wagon

Whatever you do, please don’t call the new 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo a station wagon. Even describing it as a hatchback is off-limits.

All for just $6,000 more than the regular car.
