Behold the Beauty of a Modern Lincoln Continental With Suicide Doors

Last week, we wrote about how Lincoln’s official Instagram posted an image which implied we’d soon see a modern Lincoln Continental with suicide doors. And now, that’s exactly what we’re seeing — but it’s not quite what we were hoping for. Because the car you see in these photos is one of just 80 that’ll be produced. The number is a nod to the marque’s 80th birthday, and it’s worth noting that they won’t even be produced by Lincoln, but rather by Cabot Coach Builders of Haverville, Massachusetts.

INFINITI Teases New Electric Platform Ahead of Detroit Auto Show

At Pebble Beach this year, INFINITI debuted the stunning Prototype 10, a single seat electric racer that was a both an homage to Formula 1’s golden era, and a statement about the company’s future. Looking at its gorgeous lines, you’d be hard pressed not to call it beautiful, but even the most determined gearhead would never call it practical.  The same could be said about its predecessor, the arguably even prettier Prototype 9, which wowed audiences at the legendary event in 2017. But the electric concept  INFINITI is bringing to the…

Check Out a Leaked Picture of the 2020 Toyota Supra

Toyota has been pretty coy about releasing pics of its latest Supra, and even went to the extraordinary step of staging a “world debut” while the car was still wearing its testing camouflage. It’s a move that left a lot of folks in the industry scratching their heads, and while we weren’t slated to get a full look at the next-generation sports car until the Detroit Auto Show next month, thanks to the folks at the Supra MKV forum, we already have it. Because we want to give credit where…

Here’s What Porsche is Planning for the 911 Hybrid

The wraps just came off the 2019 Porsche 911 at the Los Angeles Auto Show late last month, but there’s already talk about the next steps in the evolution of the iconic machine — and a hybrid 911 is coming. Details come from our friends at Autocar, who recently spoke with head of Porsche’s sports car development, August Achleitner about the company’s plans for electrification, and they sound exciting. As the following quote suggests, the focus will primarily be on the performance potential, and not fuel-sipping efficiency. “We’ve taken the experience…
