2015 Porsche Macan S, Turbo First TestLooking Forward

Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to drive a Porsche 918 Spyder for three-quarters of a lap around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The rare opportunity to drive a million-dollar, almost-900-horsepower hybrid hypercar wasn't just due to me being in the right place at the right time, but also to two generations of Porsche Cayenne SUVs.

It's a daunting question, considering the $10k+ price gap between each model that you could put into the gas-and-rubber jar.

Plugged in: Electric vehicles coming to Canada in 2015

The all-electric version of Kia's urban compact box arrives in October, and promises 160 kilometres of range, and only slightly less in winter - and this may be a conservative figure, as a brief test drive last March in temperatures just above freezing determined that it was capable of an estimated 193 km. It loses little cargo space to the gas Soul, but will be priced about $8,000 more.

Porsche 211PS Powered Boxster Leaked

Porsche for layman may not be considerable, but still the leaked link from a Porsche dealer in Belgium had made us to believe so!!! Possibly to be powered by the standard 2.7-liter flat-six engine, and not the four-cylinder unit yet, Porsche Belgium reported it to be delivering 211 PS which is still awaited the official confirmation from the German automaker. However, there are chances that leaked specifications would be of the locally produced Boxster version which could have been ousted to take advantage of taxation due to local production.
