by Ali Arsham A full size luxury SUV is probably the best vehicle for a long distance road trip and they don’t get much better than the Lincoln Navigator. So when we had a 2015 Navigator show up, we had no choice but to drive it everywhere and see if the Navigator is as enjoyable as we remember it from its early days.
Electric Sports Car This is what it might look like -- the Porsche of tomorrow. Porsche is presenting the "Mission E" concept car at the IAA in Frankfurt from 17 to 27 September. The concept car is a coherent design of a sports car with an electric drive and all of the traits that make up a Porsche. In the Mission E, an entirely new spread is experienced between performance and efficiency -- supplemented by a futuristic display and control concept. The joint premiere with the new generation 911 Carrera has symbolic character. The first all-electrically powered four-seat Porsche of the 21st century represents the future of a concept that made the 911 the most successful sports car ever for over 50 years.
by Ali Arsham If your average SUV is not big enough for you, then you are in need of a Chevrolet Suburban. The Suburban has been around for 80 years now and is in its 12th generation. Of course today’s version has little in common with the first one and the first one certainly did not have features like 4G connectivity and six USB ports but the new one does. After spending some time with the giant SUV, we found that the unique combination of space, luxury and capability is very useful.
and Pebble Beach Tour d'Elegance presented by Rolex It was a Globally Renowned Tribute To Automotive Splendour. Staged on the scenic fairway of the 18th hole of the Pebble Beach Golf Links, the grand finale of the Monterey Classic Car Week the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, saw a bumper entry of 200 premium collector’s cars today.
Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance As the epic annual Monterey Classic Car Week continues to grow and grow, so too does one of its central events, the Pebble Beach Tour d'Elegance presented by Rolex. In the 2015 event, which was blessed by the best Californian weather in recent years, nearly 200 cars with a value collectively running into the many hundreds of millions of dollars, ran the non-competitive tour of 80 miles (129 kilometers), to the mass approval of huge crowds.
by Ali Arsham Ford takes it trucks very seriously. Without the F150, the company would be in a different place today so every time the F150 is being redesigned, it is done with a lot of research and analysis. The new F150 has been tested probably more than any other recent Ford. Before the 2015 F-150 went on sale, it will have been torture-tested in labs, at Ford proving grounds and in the hands of some of Ford’s most demanding truck customers for more than 10 million miles. The grueling testing simulates the demands Ford customers will subject the truck to throughout its average lifetime.
Official unveiling scheduled for Frankfurt Motor Show Ferrari announces the launch of the 488 Spider, its most powerful ever mid-rear-engined V8 car to feature the patented retractable hard top along with the highest level of technological innovation and with cutting-edge design.

by Ali Arsham The Lexus LS was one of those game changing cars when it first arrived in 1991. The original car was initiated by the Toyota chairman himself to be a luxury sedan to beat the best from Europe. The engineers were told not to use any existing Toyota platforms or engines in their designs and what they came out had to beat out their targets and it did.
by Ali Arsham The Audi A3 is one of the best kept secrets out there. Here is an Audi at Toyota prices that still feels and drives like an Audi. The A3 was totally redesigned last year and the US market lost the hatchback version so now all A3 models are sedans. The good news is that there are many improvements along the way. There is even a rumor that the hatchback will be back in the US.

by Ali Arsham The minivan has been forgotten among many manufacturers. There are only a handful of minivans still available for sale and most have not been redesigned in a long time. Kia’s Sedona minivan has been around for a long time but has not been updated for many years. Some assumed that Kia would just quietly get rid of it from their lineup but instead Kia redesigned it and has made the 2015 Sedona one of the best and most attractive minivans available.
