Top Five Coolest 2017 Cars With WiFi

If you’ve just started exploring your new-car options, let us be the first to tell you: Cars with WiFi is a total thing now. Because for many folks, being outside the range of WiFi — or heaven forbid, cell service — is a total nightmare. And while we don’t really want to get into the mire of wrestling with this modern desire to be connected every second of every day, over the last few years, car manufacturers have been scrambling to meet it. Right now, there are over 100 cars with…

2018 BMW M5 Gets AWD, Loses Manual Transmission Automotive News 

2018 BMW M5 Gets All-Wheel Drive, Loses Manual Transmission

There’s no nice way to put this — it’s the end of an era. The 2018 BMW M5 will not have a manual transmission option. And while you didn’t have to be Nostradamus to see this coming, from an enthusiast perspective, it’s still disappointing news. On one hand, we should be grateful, because in a strange reversal of fortune — see the options for Alfa Romeo’s Giulia Quadrifoglio — North America was the only market that got a stick option last time around. Now, in recent years, the Cadillac CTS-V has stolen some of its thunder,…

Fortunately, Jason Fenske from Engineering Explained has made a helpful video designed to dispel some myths and break down some common ways drivers subject their transmissions to unneeded stress.

Porsche Celebrates Production of the Millionth 911

The millionth 911 has rolled out of Porsche’s factory in Zuffenhausen, marking a milestone for one of the world’s most iconic cars. Finished in Irish Green, and featuring an interior with wood accents and houndstooth seats, number one million is a sentimental nod to the very first 911, which was optioned the same way. To keep with the traditional theme, it’s also sporting a stick, not a PDK dual-clutch transmission — and it’s definitely not a hybrid. Now, you might be wondering why 911 number one was painted in Irish Green, as opposed to a traditional…
