2014 BMW 7-Series Review
The 7-Series has long been the flagship model for BMW, a roomy luxury sedan that's also where you'll find some of the most advanced technology in the world. Even though the 2014 BMW 7-Series builds on bones that are now more than five years old, last year's refresh, continued technology upgrades, and strong, efficient powertrains keep this trend-setter relevant—as well as one of our top high-end luxury sedan picks.

Diesel-engined cars are nothing new these days, even if sales in the U.S. are yet to catch up to ever-popular gasoline vehicles. But little is ever heard of diesel-engined motorcycles. Between gasoline bikes and the new breed of electric models, few seem to have explored the diesel concept.
Here's a great piece of bar trivia: The first-ever Porsche was ... an electric car.
