General Motors Chairman and CEO Mary Barra speaks at the annual CERAWeek energy conference in Houston on Wednesday, March 7, 2018. Her appearance consists of an opening speech followed by a Q&A session. GM is well on their way to bringing at least 20 new all-electric models to market by 2023 – their next step toward a zero-emissions world.

  by Ali Arsham
If I told you a few years ago that you can buy a plug-in hybrid with a BMW badge, you probably would not believe me. The fact is that now you can buy the 530e iPerformance which is one of our favorite BMW models (except for M models, of course).  It is completely a 5 series BMW first which is great because the 5 series has always been the perfect size.
Entire Porsche company working towards a single goal
  Stefan Weckbach, Head of BEV at Porsche (Battery Electric Vehicles)

Porsche Development in four dimensions
  Michael Steiner on the dawn of a new age of mobility
Over the next ten to fifteen years Porsche will be relying on a triumvirate of drive concepts. Porsche will offer vehicles with continuously optimized combustion engines, attractive plug-in hybrid models and purely electric sports cars in parallel. The reason: Since demand for e-mobility is developing very differently in the various regions of the world, the strategy pursued by a company with a global presence must be as flexible as possible during this transitional period. Purely electric vehicles will play an increasingly significant role in the future, for Porsche as well as for everyone else.
The new Ferrari 488 Pista
  A Brilliant Track-Derived Exhilaration And Performance

The Ferrari 488 Pista marks a significant step forward from the previous special series in terms of both sporty dynamics and for the level of technological carry-over from racing. The name is, in fact, a direct homage to Ferrari’s unparalleled heritage in motor sports.

I Took a Stranger for a Ride in a Mercedes-AMG GT
  by Jodi Lai
Christopher Graeme Sidebottom, who sometimes goes by Popsicles Sanchez, is a 100 percent real person who has given up defending his name, which is 100 percent not made up. He is 31 years old with a big ginger beard, friendly face, and unassuming posture. He builds TV and movie sets in Toronto and admittedly knows nothing about cars -- he only has his learner’s permit and the last car that ever got any attention from him was the Plymouth Prowler. He sometimes operates a forklift, but hasn’t driven pretty much anything.
