Toyota isn't new to the boat business, the Toyota Marine division putting aquatic products out to sea since 1997 under the Ponam brand. In 2019, Lexus hit the water with the LY 650 luxury yacht, "a new embodiment of Lexus' challenge to go beyond the automobile to deliver innovative and amazing experiences." Built by Wisconsin-based Marquis Yachts, the LY 650 bore similar lines to Marquis' 630 Sport Yacht or 65, the Lexus yacht's stylized lines and interior designed by Italian outfit Nuvolari Lenard. A refresh for that first effort results in the LY 680, which adds 55 inches to the length of the flybridge, making more room for the lounge sofa and barbecue, and 27.6 inches to the swimming platform in back. Overall length grows to 67.8 feet.

Throughout the 1980s, Mercedes-Benz's engineering department became heavily occupied with the development of the new S-Class. Simultaneously, Porsche was facing a production and economic crisis due to a decline in export business.

Founded by Thierry Sabine in 1977, the Dakar Rally has become a proving ground for the most skillful drivers and off-road machines. Competitors must traverse expansive and difficult-to-navigate terrain in the least time possible, overcoming obstacles such as sand dunes, mud streams, gravel, boulders, and ravines. While drivers raced for glory, engineers were faced with new challenges that bore some of the most legendary off-road homologation cars from the likes of Range Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and Peugeot.

Porsche is expanding the model line-up of its all-electric sports sedan to include the Taycan Turbo GT and the Taycan Turbo GT with Weissach Package. The latter is built for the track and dispenses with the rear seats in favor of an even better power-to-weight ratio. At peak power, both models can deliver more than 1,000 hp. In combination with various lightweight construction and aerodynamics measures, these all-electric GT sports sedans raise the bar in terms of driving dynamics. A more powerful and efficient pulse inverter that uses silicon carbide as the semiconductor material is used on the rear axle. The first Taycan Turbo GT models should be delivered to customers from this summer.

When you think of high-performance sports car manufacturers, the first countries that come to mind are likely Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United States. The iconic marques from these countries have produced some of the most legendary machines to ever hit the road. But throughout history, some fascinating and unique cars were created by smaller brands from places not usually associated with automaking.

Porsche's steady march of progress has seen the transformation of a simple sports car design into one of the most capable road-going machines ever built, all while staying true to its illustrious heritage. While enthusiasts have lauded developments in braking, suspension, and of course the flat-six engine, it seems the strides made in Porsche's automatic transmissions have gone largely underappreciated despite their many attributes.

As human beings, we all strive for our own identities, to establish ourselves as our own person, to stand out from the crowd, and promote our own dreams, intrinsic happiness, and self-worth. Cars have long been an expression of one's personality and often a status symbol, a way to set ourselves apart on the road full of drab silver, black, or white metal boxes. We have all heard stories of special, one-off cars built for Sultans, Sheiks, and the elites of society, coach-built specialty vehicles that are unattainable for the ordinary person, often costing inconceivable sums of money and requiring connections beyond the reach of the average consumer.

By the 1980s, Mercedes-Benz had established a long history competing in rally events across the globe. Running across rough terrain over hundreds of miles proved to be the perfect test of the brand's robust build quality and numerous body styles found themselves in competition from the humble W123 to the elegant W113. When the W201 chassis hit the market in 1982, it featured a complex 5-link rear end design which allowed for supreme control of the wheels making the vehicle highly suitable for development as a competition machine. As such, Mercedes joined forces with famed engineering firm Cosworth to produce a punchy twin camshaft, 16-valve cylinder head based on the M102 inline 4 motor.

The landscape of motoring changed drastically in the 1970s. While many of the industry's greatest sports car brands fell to pressures, Porsche adapted. In 1976 came the type 924, a commission undertaken by Porsche for VW/Audi, abandoned by the client, and sold back to Porsche late in its development. A water-cooled 2.0L inline 4 Audi motor mounted at the front; the transmission married the rear axle (transaxle), forming a near 50/50 chassis. In base trim, the car produced just 95bhp. Kept simple, light, and most importantly affordable, much of the extremities were pulled from the shared family parts bin and the car itself was built, under contract, at the Audi plant in North Germany.

Since its inception in 1986, BMW's high-performance M3 model has set the bar for European sports cars. Originally developed as a homologation special for the Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft (DTM) racing series, the first M3 was based on the E30 3-Series and made use of revised aerodynamics, larger brakes, upgraded suspension, and the specially developed S14 DOHC inline-four engine. The result was an impeccably well-balanced and finely tuned sports car whose racing counterparts would go on to win some of the most prestigious motorsport events of the era.

The Porsche 996 represents perhaps the most significant change to the 911 sports car. To the chagrin of many purists, the 996 was larger, more refined, and significantly more advanced than its predecessors. Moreover, it did away with the traditional air-cooled engine architecture in favor of a less temperamental and more capable water-cooled platform.
