The 10 best used cars to own
MSN    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Conventional wisdom says that, on average, a new car loses 20 percent of its value the moment you drive it off the dealer's lot. So when times are tough and money is tight, it makes sense to shop the used-car market and be on the winning side of that depreciation curve. More

Green tech may cost Ford and Porsche customers
Bloomberg Businessweek    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Ford and Porsche have a lot more in common than most people might think. Both brands are surfing good tides amid a roiling recession and are in decent financial shape (Ford less so, but relative to its Detroit brethren, the Blue Oval is King Midas). And even though the two brands rarely occupy the same headspace or engage the same customers, far more stringent regulations from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on fuel economy (fleet average of 35.5 mpg by 2016) are about to hit both brands quite heavily, if not equally.

Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid, a $68,000 gas-electric SUV, will not be a big seller.

Can Porsche shine at Volkswagen?
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The formal merger of Porsche and Volkswagen is not supposed to happen until next year at the earliest, but at the factory here that produces Porsche Cayenne SUVs, it seems to have started years ago. The painted Cayenne bodies arrive by train from a Volkswagen factory in Slovakia, where they are made alongside the similar VW Touareg. Likewise, the basic skin and skeleton of the new Porsche Panamera sedan, also assembled here, begins life at a VW factory in Hanover. More
