Please Buy a Porsche Panamera Rather Than the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe

By info@topspeed.com (Jonathan Lopez)
Porsche just unveiled the 2020 Cayenne Coupe, which is a lot like the standard Cayenne, but with a sportier roofline. As a fan of fast cars and less of a fan of fast SUVs, I feel as though its my duty to encourage anyone considering the Cayenne Coupe as their next vehicle purchase to instead take a gander at the Porsche Panamera lineup, which offers more performance, equal levels of luxury, and nearly equal practicality.

Shmee Rides Shotgun In a Ferrari-Beating Volkswagen Up: Video

By info@topspeed.com (Jonathan Lopez)
Sliding behind the wheel of some big, nasty sports car with a bajillion horsepower and tires wider than Wisconsin certainly has its appeal. That said, beating a bajillion-horsepower sports car with a lightweight little econobox also has its appeal. And while YouTuber Shmee150 certainly has loads of experience with the former, this video shows him trying out the latter. The featured vehicle this time is called the Sub 7Up - a modified, stripped-down Volkswagen Up! with the potential to spank... [read more]

Best Cars for City Driving

By info@topspeed.com (Sidd Dhimaan)
We don't have to tell you how difficult it has become to drive in a metropolitan city these days. The ever-growing traffic and lack of parking space sometimes pushes you to take an Uber instead of driving yourself. But if you have multiple things to do, like dropping off the kids to school, going to work, and run daily errands, you cannot rely on cabs all the time. For that, you need a car that is practical and capable of... [read more]

Tesla Model Y versus Polestar 2

By info@topspeed.com (Andrei Nedelea)
The scene may have been busy over the past few days, comparing the new Tesla Model Y and the very similar Model 3, calling them too similar, but the fact of the matter is, the new small Tesla crossover has a direct rival. I am, of course, talking about the Polestar 2, itself a strange model thats neither a sedan nor a crossover - thats right up the Model Ys alley. These two cars are direct rivals if weve ever...

By info@topspeed.com (Robert Moore)
Coupe SUVs tend to suffer from polarized opinions you either like them or absolutely despise them. They represent the weirdest blend between body styles that the automotive world has ever seen.

Thats why were looking at the new 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Porsche had to have a competitor for the BMW X6, and now they do. Powered by either a 3.0-liter six-cylinder or a 4.0-liter V-8, the...

Refreshing or Revolting: Porsche Cayenne Coupe Vs. The Competition

Fastback SUVs are all about the look, considering they provide no practical benefit over traditional utility vehicles. With their dramatic rooflines, they attract customers who want something a little different. The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe is the latest entry in this growing segment, competing against the BMW X6 , Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe , and the new Audi Q8 . But which is the best looking of the bunch? Unsurprisingly, the Cayenne Coupe looks pretty much like the regular Cayenne from... [read more]

Best Commuter Cars

By info@topspeed.com (Safet Satara)
The U.S. Census Bureau estimated that an average time for the one-way daily commute in the U.S. is precisely 26.1 minutes. Remember, you have to come back too. That roughly equals to 4 and a half hours commuting weekly and over 200 hours in traffic per year. Only for your daily commute. Sure, the national average does not apply to any state or a city. For example, on average, you will commute about 16.6 minutes in South Dakota (shortest commute... [read more]

Unveiled in 2019, it goes on sale for the 2020 model year with drivetrains borrowed from the regular Cayenne.

2019 BMW M850i xDrive First Test: Right the Second Time?

A look back at the original BMW 8 Series should make you appreciate the new one even more.

Very enticing. But overall the 850i failed to elicit much in the way of a visceral reaction, we noted. Handsome but unfulfilling. --> The hard, cold numbers confirmed our feelings. It needed 6.7...

The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Is the Continuation of a Dumb Segment
