Worst car flops of 2011
Forbes via Yahoo Autos    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
John McElroy, the loquacious host of the Autoline Detroit TV and radio shows, is optimistic about the auto industry. More than one million new cars sell each month in the United States, he points out. Ford and GM have become more profitable than many analysts had expected; record sales numbers at luxury brands like Audi and BMW don't hurt, either. And there are some exciting new models in the pipeline for 2012 and beyond. More

Game over for the US Grand Prix and the Circuit of the Americas
Autoweek    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2011, will go down as the day when the racing died in Austin, Texas. The 2012 Formula One United States Grand Prix and the track that would host it, the Circuit of the Americas, were dealt a one-two punch that seems unsurvivable - though neither the race nor the track has formally been pronounced dead. Of course, neither has Texas Gov. Rick Perry's presidential campaign, but we all know how that's going. More

Porsche announces customer delivery center and track in Los Angeles
Car and Driver    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Echoing a similar facility that will be built near Atlanta - which will also have Porsche's new North American headquarters on site - the Porsche Experience Center in Carson, Calif., will include a test track that is twice the size of Atlanta's, plus a customer delivery center, a gymnasium, a gift shop, a cafe, and whatever else Porsche can think of between now and the groundbreaking next summer.

Bloomberg    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Good news: The Porsche 911 hasn't lost its soul. To those of us who love cars, that's neither an academic nor a hippy-dippy consideration. Around for almost a half century, the 911 Carrera is the uber sports car, a distillation of all a Germanic screamer should be. More

CNET    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Despite changed proportions, the new 911 retains its iconic look. By now the 2012 Porsche 911 has been unveiled more times than we can keep track of, but the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show marked the seventh-generation 911's large-stage debut in North America (it had been shown at October's Rennsport Reunion at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, but to a much smaller crowd). It was displayed alongside the latest variant of the Panamera, the GTS, which will be available as a 2013 model. More
