From The Car Connection:

Lexus aims to go haggle-free, dealers grumble

For many car shoppers, haggling is a relic of days gone by. To them, haggling feels like mimeographs or three-martini lunches: once part of a business person's daily routine, but woefully out of date.

2016 Porsche 911 review

The 2016 Porsche 911 is one of just a few sports cars that, for decades, has managed to simultaneously preserve its own unique style and lineage and yet provide performance that's remained near the head of the pack.

From Green Car Reports:

Tesla Model X gets new 75D base version, replacing 70D that was never built

With a restyled Model S released yesterday and more than 300,000 reservations globally for its $35,000 Model 3 coming in 2018, Tesla Motors has had a busy, busy month. Almost overlooked in all the news about those two electric cars was another update to another Tesla product.
