► 2012 Porsche Panamera TURBO S (550 hp) on the road
The new Panamera turbo S is a unique combination of performance and efficiency, driving dynamics and comfort. The 4.8 litre, V8 biturbo charged engine delivers 550 hp (410 kW), ten percent or 50 hp (37 kW) more than the already very powerful engine in the Panamera turbo. By the same token, the torque also increases from 700 to 750 Nm. In the "Sport" and "Sport Plus" mode of the standard Sport Chrono Package turbo and during kick-down in normal mode, the eight cylinder engine delivers fully 800 Nm with the so-called overBoost function.
The power pack is behind the new top-of-the-range Panamera's record sprint times. Thanks to Launch Control, 100 km/h (62 mph) is reached in 3.8 seconds; the top speed is 306 km/h (191 mph). Despite the increased performance, fuel consumption remains at the moderate level of the Panamera turbo -- yet another example of "Porsche Intelligent Performance". In the NEDC the Gran Turismo covers 100 kilometres (62 miles) on 11.5 litres of fuel. Fuel consumption falls to 11.3 litres per 100 km (25 mpg imp.) when fitted with the 19 inch, all-season tyres with optimised rolling resistance developed for the Panamera by Michelin.
The increased performance compared with the Panamera turbo can be attributed to two main enhancements: Improved turbochargers with titanium-aluminium turbine wheels and modified engine control. The use of the innovative titanium-aluminium alloy reduces the weight of the turbine and compressor wheel. This results in a lower moment of inertia and thus in improved and more agile engine responsiveness.
Even for a top luxury class model, Porsche's new top-of-the-range Panamera boasts an extraordinarily comprehensive equipment level. In keeping with the sporty concept of the high-performance Panamera, it features the most important driving dynamics control systems as standard. For example, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), an active roll stabilisation system, nips in the bud the vehicle's tendency to lean when cornering, thus enhancing agility and comfort in equal measure. Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) applies a variable torque split to the rear wheels combined with an electronically controlled rear differential lock, thus ensuring superior traction and therefore greater agility in every driving situation. The steering system uses the speed-dependent Servotronic. The Sport Chrono Package turbo, which tunes the suspension and power unit, making them even sportier by pressing the additional "Sport Plus" button, is also fitted as standard, as is the sports Exhaust system for an even more emotional engine sound.
The sporty character of the new Panamera turbo S is apparent not just in its performance but is also reflected on the exterior. The 20-inch turbo II wheels with increased rear axle track width, side skirts from the Porsche Exclusive range and the adaptive extending four-way rear spoiler in the exterior colour ensure particularly sporty performance and look. The fusion of exclusivity and sportiness is conveyed in the interior by the bi-colour leather finish, fitted as standard. The new combination of black/cream is offered exclusively for the new Panamera turbo S with agate grey/cream also being added as an exclusive combination from the autumn.
The Panamera turbo S costs 167,076 euro in Germany, including VAT and country-specific equipment. Deliveries start in June 2011.

► 2012 Scion iQ
Scion announced today that its 2012 iQ premium micro-subcompact will begin
arriving in dealerships this October. The Scion iQ is only 10 feet long yet
seats four people, making it the world's smallest four-seater.
Meeting the needs of a new trendsetting generation of urban drivers, the iQ
succeeds at taking big ideas and concentrating them into a small package.
Made possible by intelligent and functional packaging, the iQ is a small
car that offers the functionality and comfort that drivers expect from a
car twice its size.
The 2012 iQ is equipped with a 1.3-liter, four-cylinder engine that
produces 94 horsepower and 89 lb.-ft of
torque. It features the latest dual VVT-i, which allows the engine to be
efficient, providing a broader powerband yet requiring less fuel and
generating fewer emissions.
The 2012 Scion iQ will begin arriving at dealerships on the west coast
starting this October. The car will be available in other regions of the
country beginning in early 2012. The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price
(MSRP) for the 2012 iQ is $15,265. The delivery, processing and handling
(DPH) fee for all Scion models is $730 and is not included in the MSRP. DPH
fee for vehicles distributed by Southeast Toyota (SET) and Gulf States
Toyota (GST) may vary.
► 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8
Designed and built using the proven SRT formula that raises the performance
to astonishing levels, the new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 runs from 0-60
mph in 4.8 seconds, 0-100-0 mph in the mid-16 second range, can cover the
quarter mile in the mid-13 second range, has a top speed of 160 mph, and
brakes from 60-0 mph in 116 feet.
Powering the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is Chrysler Group's all-new
6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 with Fuel Saver Technology that delivers 470 horsepower (351 kW) and 465
(630 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque -- an improvement of 50 horsepower and 45 lb.-ft.
torque over the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 it replaces.
An active intake manifold and high-lift camshaft with cam phasing delivers
maximum low-end torque while optimizing high-end power across a wider and
improved rpm band. Specifically, 90-percent of peak torque is available
between 2,800 and 6,000 rpm, allowing for inspired standing starts and
improved straight-line performance.
Standard Fuel Saver Technology and a new-for-2012 active valve Exhaust system allows four-cylinder operation to
engage over a wider rpm range, to deliver both improved fuel efficiency --
a 13-percent increase on the highway -- and an extended range of 450 miles
on one tank of gas.
Standard steering wheel mounted paddle shifters join the standard Auto
Stick on the floor. Both are mated to a proven automatic transmission,
allowing a choice of spirited shifting on the road and the race track. Both
methods give the driver the ability to shift while the transmission
controller calibration prevents situations that might over rev the engine.
Fully adaptive electronic control of all shifting makes the powertrain more
responsive while minimizing harshness.
Chrysler Group's SRT vehicles are well known for their world-class braking.
Stopping power for the 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 comes courtesy of new SRT
high-performance Brembo brakes with four-wheel anti-lock brake system
Stopping distance performance of 116 feet from 60-0 mph is made possible by
new red-painted, Brembo 6-piston (front) and 4-piston (rear) calipers, and
vented rotors at all four corners measuring 15-inches (front) and

Porsche Panamera S Hybrid review - Auto Express
It's a car that's broken new ground in more ways than one. Not only is the
Porsche Panamera the firm's first four-door grand tourer, but now, with the
introduction of the Panamera S Hybrid, it's also the most fuel-efficient
model the firm has ever produced.
Capable of 41.5mpg and emitting only 159g/km of CO2, this Panamera is --
unbelievably -- more economical and cleaner than a VW Passat 1.8 TSI
petrol. Yet it still delivers the kind of performance you'd expect from a
Porsche. It can sprint from 0-62mph in only six seconds, while top speed is
