2017 Porsche 911 goes full turbo at Frankfurt Motor Show

At the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, Porsche used the event’s bright lit stage to show off updates to the 911’s bread-and-butter models: the Carrera and Carrera S. Earmarked for the 2017 model year, the two trims sport improved looks courtesy of revamped front and rear fascias, new headlights and taillights, and even redesigned exterior door handles. Arguably the biggest change to the 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera and Carrera S, though, sits beneath the thin vertical louvers of the car’s revamped rear decklid: a twin-turbocharged flat-6 engine. Measuring 3.0-liters, the new six-cylinder boxer…

2016 BMW M3 and 3 Series get Facelift, More Tech for Frankfurt Motor Show

It seems like only yesterday that the current BMW 3 Series (F30) was introduced and already that radical fascia is in for a facelift. The entire line of 2016 3-Series both sedan and wagon are in for a refresh and arrived at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in updated German style.

Not so mini 2016 MINI Clubman shown in Frankfurt

If the standard two-door MINI Hardtop is too small, and the larger MINI Countryman is too tall, then the all-new 2016 MINI Clubman is just right. Aimed squarely at the competitive compact hatchback segment, the redesigned 2016 Clubman is one massive MINI, measuring nearly 11 inches longer than the tiny MINI Hardtop 4 Door.  Thanks to its extensive size, the big Clubman offers a whopping 17.5 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats in use and a respectable 47.9 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats down….

2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe and Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe Take Over Frankfurt Motor Show

Buyers considering the new 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe will be thrilled to know that the slick sports coupe reminds us of a baby S-Class Coupe. Since its debut the C-Class sedan has elements of its design and shape that are reminiscent of the flagship S-Class, and the new C-Class Coupe is even more proof of that trend. We find the C-Class to really level up on the luxury aesthetics by using aspects of the S-Class design, such as the front fascia, taillights and silhouette. While the front fascia might share…

The 2017 Audi A4 is Lighter, Bigger, Faster, Stronger at Frankfurt Motor Show

If subtle is sexy, then the new 2017 Audi A4 is the sexiest new vehicle to be unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. The all-new entry-level luxury sedan’s design is such an evolution of its predecessor that it’s hard to tell the difference between the two models at first glance. Look harder though, and the new A4’s sharper lines step out prominently. We’re particularly fond of the hood’s cutline that gracefully merges with the top of the car’s front fenders. While Audi may not have focused on revolutionizing the…
