2013 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S rated at 542 hp - Autoweek TV with Natalie Neff
Also in this episode: Chevy orders more Sparks to meet rising demand, and
Dale Earnhardt Jr. takes a break to nurse a concussion.
-- Porsche reveals the most powerful Cayenne yet.
-- Chevy calls for more Sparks.
-- And Dale Junior is going to take a two-week break.
I'm Natalie, wrapping up another week with a hot-octane episode of Autoweek
TV. Let's light the tires and see what's making news:
Porsche has unveiled a new version of the Cayenne, the turbo S. It gets a formal debut at the Los Angeles
auto show in late November and goes on sale next March. The new Cayenne
runs a lightly modified version of the turbo's 4.8-liter V8, the same engine used by the
Panamera turbo S.
Power climbs to about 542 hp, making the turbo S the most powerful Cayenne model yet.
Torque is rated at 553 lb-ft. The all-wheel drive Cayenne turbo S uses an air suspension and Porsche's
active-damping control, along with hydraulically operated roll bars to
minimize body roll.
It's another way you can really haul the cargo.
Details on the Porsche Cayenne turbo S:
Chevy needs more Sparks. GM has upped its order for the minicar from the
assembly plant in South Korea after a stronger than expected start to
sales. Chevy launched the Spark in 18 metro markets last summer. During the
first two months, sales totaled 6,300 units and dealers have been asking
for more cars.
For more on the Spark:
Finally, Dale Earnhardt Jr. is taking a couple of weeks off from NASCAR
racing. Junior was caught up in the "big one" that happened on the last lap
of last weekend's Sprint Cup race at Talladega and got his bell rung.
He says he became disoriented as the car spun around, although he was able
to drive it back to the garage. But after having some severe headaches,
doctors say the driver has a concussion. He also sustained a concussion
from a crash in Kansas in August.
Junior hopes to return for the Martinsville race at the end of this month.
Until then market: Regan Smith will drive is car.
Details on Dale Jr.'s concussion:
That's the news for this week. It's a great weekend for seeing the fall
colors, football tailgating and some apple cider and donuts -- so get out
there and enjoy the drive.
We'll see you on Monday.
Inside the Designer’s Studio
A conversation with Jaguar Chief Designer Ian Callum
Jaguar USA AND Autoweek joined forces at the Hilton Head Island Motoring
Festival to bring exclusive, behind-the-scenes access any car fanatic would
put high on a list of must-do events.
Jaguar special guests and Autoweek Advisors were treated to the car-guy
insights of Jaguar Chief Designer Ian Callum, who admitted that, among
other things, he started drawing cars at just 3 years old. “I would draw
mechanical things around the house,” he said. “Appliances, cars, even
the Hoover [vacuum]."

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG gets an anniversary upgrade - Autoweek TV with Rory Carroll
Also in this episode: GM names Robert Ferguson its "vice president of
global Cadillac," Toyota turns to the Home Shopping Network to sell cars,
and race-car constructor Lola succumbs to its financial troubles.
-- Cadillac gets a new boss.
-- Toyota hawks hybrids on HSN.
-- Mercedes builds a near-perfect SLS.
--And another storied car-builder goes under.
I'm Rory, it's Wednesday, let's do news:
GM has appointed its top lobbyist, Robert Ferguson, to a newly created and
confusingly named position, vice president of global Cadillac.
Ferguson will focus on Cadillac marketing, advertising and improving the
Cadillac customer experience. He called the new job a challenge, but
compared to working in politics, this should be a walk in the park.
More on Ferguson:
When you think of the Home Shopping Network, what comes to mind? Yeah, I
had to look it up too. Apparently it's a whole network where celebrities
get tuned up and sell fragrance lines, clothing and appliances that they've
supposedly endorsed. Apparently Toyota thought they might be able to
offload some of their appliances—I mean hybrids--on cable too because
they recently trotted their entire line-up of very exciting transport
modules before HSN viewers.
It wouldn't be "as seen on TV" if there wasn't a special offer, so Toyota
gave away $1000 HSN gift cards or $1000 gas cards to those who acted fast.
The company also gave away prizes and invited viewers to play games during
the broadcast. Some viewers even entered to win a Toyota Avalon hybrid...
More details on Toyota & HSN:
Just like the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, the excellent Mercedes-Benz SLS gives
drivers the option of shifting gears by daintily plucking at a little
paddle with an outstretched digit. However, Mercedes has recently released
the most wonderfully undainty version of the SLS yet to celebrate the 45th
anniversary of the first SL. Five will be built to SLS AMG GT3
specification, and they'll cost just a hair under $580,000. I'm going to
shut up so you can focus on the pictures.
Finally, some sad news. Lola, the manufacturer of some of the greatest race
cars of all time, has ceased operations. The company was facing $30million
in debt. After attempts to sell the company failed, they closed up shop.
Details on Lola:
Well, that's the news. We'll see you back here tomorrow. Until then, check

Road Test: 2013 Honda Accord
Through eight generations of sedans, coupes, and even wagons, the Honda
Accord has grown up right alongside the American family. But, the 9th
generation Accord greets an altered automotive landscape, now filled with
challengers from both import and domestic brands. Can the 2013 Accord can
remain a family favorite? MotorWeek's John Davis has a road test review of
the 2013 Honda Accord.
2013 Honda Accord Sedan Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/honda/accord/2013/ The mid-sized sedan segment is
by far the most competitive segment in the entire automotive industry.
Practically every manufacturer has a vehicle targeting this segment. For
years the Accord was at the top of the heap winning award after award, year
after year. But the Accord quickly got stale and with the new Ford Fusion,
Nissan Altima, and Toyota Camry redesigns; the Accord was losing ground
quickly. Now we have a new measuring stick with the all new redesigned 2013
Honda Accord Sedan. The Accord is one of the safest bets in America today.
The base price is $21,680; the car drives great, has a nice resale value,
and offers wonderful reliability.
Most enthusiasts and automotive journalist would cringe at the thought of
having to test drive yet another family sedan. But the reality is that this
is still the most popular segment of car in America today. The Camry and
Accord combined sell almost a million cars per year. Honda has basically
set the standard with the Accord for over 30 years. This nameplate has been
around since the 1970's and is now in its 9th generation and the Accord
keeps on getting better. What's unusual about the new 2013 Honda Accord is
that it has actually gotten shorter while interior room has increased and
the cargo room is larger, which is a great testament to Honda Engineers.
Styling is dramatically improved with the nice shoulder lines and shorter
overhangs. Basically the car looks more modern and up to date. But it is
not just about styling with the new Accord Sedan. Under the hood is a brand
new engine and CVT transmission. Not to be outdone by Mazda's SkyActiv
engine technology, Honda has released their own line called Earth Dreams
Technology. The new engine is very efficient and powerful. The motor is a
2.4 liter 4-cylinder that makes 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft. of
torque. The CVT transmission helps the Accord to get fuel economy ratings
of 27 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway. The Accord comes in
several trim levels that include the: Base LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and the top
of the line Touring model. If you want to get a 4-cylinder engine, that
comes standard on the 3 lower trims. When you move up to the more expensive
trims the V-6 engine becomes optional/standard.
Shoppers of mid-sized sedans are looking for rear legroom space. Thankfully
the Accord has plenty of it including a lot of rear headroom too. The
Accord's interior has been completely redesigned. You have an all new
instrument panel, center stack, and gauges. Everything works really well.
The speedometer looks like a high-tech Swiss watch, the steering wheel is
nice and compact, and the controls are great. Another bonus is the fact
that every 2013 Honda Accord comes with and 8-inch infotainment screen
standard as well as a rear backup camera. The Accord also comes with
Honda's new lane-watch safety system.

2013 Honda Accord Sport: CVT vs 6 Speed Manual 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Honda Accord Sport with the 189 HP 2.4L
engine can be purchased with two transmission options. You can get the new
Honda Accord with a CVT automatic transmission with paddle shifters or you
can opt for the more traditional 6 speed tranny that you have to row
yourself. In another fun and informative TFLcar mile high 0-60 MPH mashup
review we test the car with the same engine but pit the CVT automatic
against the manual 6 Speed transmission. So which of these two options is
the faster way to go. You'll have
to watch this TFLcar mashup review to find out.
