Rolls Royce Drophead Coupe Will debut at Detroit Auto Show



The all-new Rolls Royce Drophead Coupe will make its debut at the Detroit Auto Show this year. The Rolls Royce Drophead Coupe will ring in at $350,000 and feature a 6.8 liter V12 engine that will bring the car from 0-60 in an impressive 5.5 seconds.  Top speed is electronically limited to 130mph but I am sure you want to be driving this beauty slow on Ocean Drive or some other showy strip in the states.

A Drop Top Mercedes-Benz S600


TopGear Magazine reports that the S600 Convertible Concept from Mercedes Benz will appear at the Detroit Motor Show this year. The model , which is code named as "Concept Ocean Drive" will boast fancier Led taillights and the Airscarf system from the Mercdes-Benz Slk. Mercedes boasts that this car is just what it is: a concept to get attention. However insiders say "Mercedes is further down the line with an S-Class drop-top than just a one-off show car."

A Porsche 911 with DSG and direct Injection


Autoweek has reported that the Porsche 911 will have a DSG powered tranny (ala the VW GTI/Audi A3) and a six-cylinder engine with direct injection.  Summer 2008 is when these changes will take place.  Additionally Autoweek reports that the model will receive increases in horsepower (the Carrera S coupe will get a boast of horsepower from 355 to 370).  The real question though, is when the DSG tranny will see its way into the new 911 Turbo.   Time shall tell. Cant wait to drive a DSG 911.

The 2008 Porsche Cayenne Preview



Porsche has officialy unveiled the all-new 2008 Porsche Cayenne.  Head over to Porsche for the official flash unvaling.  Overal I think that Porsche has done a great job with the refreshed 2008 Cayenne, especially the Cayenne Turbo.  It definetly in my mind ranks  visually ahead of its competitors the Bmw X5, Ranger Rover , and Audi Q7.  Performance wise, the Cayenne will give drivers a choice of a V6 engine with 295 horsepower, a Cayenne S that boasts 380 horspower, and lasty the Cayenne Turbo with a monstrous twin turbo that provides 500 horsepower. 

0-60/Top Speed (in MPH)For Cayenne Models are as follows:
