The Porsche Panamera has leaked and it looks fantastic. Bring on the feeding frenzy! I admit, I didn't get the Panamera when it first came out. Rumor had it was that the original design was compromised, "Porsche CEO Matthias Muller now admits that the car suffered from design 'mistakes' that will be corrected when the car’s replacement debuts next year." Well, next year turned out to be nearly 3 years later, but it looks like they succeeded. (More below...)
The 2017 Model year is upon us and it brings mostly small changes to BMW's lineup. The 2, 3, 4, i3 and M cars get some interesting updates - new motors, bigger batteries (i) and more standard features.
iDrive 5.0 has landed. BMW's iDrive has always been the best in the business. When it first came out, on the e65 7 series, as with many modern software, it was ridden with bugs and slow, but the faithful learned and adapted. CCC was technically the second generation but it shared the look and feel of the first, just with a different underlying OS. The real second version, CIC on the F01/F02 7 series, got pretty good. By the third iteration, NBT introduced in 2014, iDrive works pretty well.
