Panamera Sport Turismo concept

Porsche revealed the Panamera Sport Turismo concept

Porsche revealed the Panamera Sport Turismo concept at Paris Motor Show .The plug-in hybrid model is described by Porsche as little more than a concept, but the company will be gauging public reaction at the show to see whether an estate version of the Panamera could be added to the range in the future.

This new concept then, gets an uprated electric motor worth 95bhp - twice the power of the current Porsche hybrid drive motor - allied to a supercharged 3.0-litre V6 engine (still churning out 333bhp) to make maximum merriment of 416bhp. As such, deploy both electric and analogue horses, and you'll accelerate from 0-62mph in less than six seconds, all driven through the rear wheels alone.

But, you'll be able to drive up to a maximum of 80mph for around 18 miles using just that 95bhp electric motor alone. You don't need an engineering degree to work out that this source equals zero emissions while driving, and helps overall CO2 output sit at less than 82g/km. That's 416bhp and 0-62mph in sub six with a lower carbon footprint than a ruddy Volkswagen Up BlueMotion.

It's got a longer roofline than the standard Panamera and a more abrupt rear end, helping to increase boot space.
The Sport Turismo also previews a few of the design cues that will find their way on to the revised Panamera early next year. The front end is now far more sculpted, with sharp creases on the bonnet, reshaped headlights and a much larger grille.
The interior is recognizable from the current car, with its prominent rising centre console, but everything has been simplified. There are fewer buttons and a new LCD screen in the dash, which replaces the traditional dials in the current car.
All this is thanks to that dandy new battery, a lithium-ion unit that's the same size as the nickel-hydride one currently in use, but packs a higher peak power. Its default setting is electric, and utilising that s‘charged V6 requires pressing a button on the steering wheel. In turn, that V6 helps charge the battery through ‘load point shifting', although you can simply plug it into any wall charger (AC) and power up in just 2.5 hours.
Naturally, it's a concept, and so there are some very concept-y details included: there are cameras mounted where the door mirrors should be, there's a 3D Porsche badge, a ‘liquid metal blue' hue that should send anyone called Sarah Connor into a cold panic, a TFT colour screen in place of regular dials, two monitors showing those exterior mirror camera images, hybrid-drive displays, a power meter and mobile phone connectivity. Porsche tells us you can even use your phone to ‘precondition' the car - setting up the air con, for example, before you get in. 

The Acid Green colour used for the brake calipers and the Sport Turismo badge are set to become trademark features of Porsche's performance hybrids.

Jeep Wrangler rubicon

"One Car Too Far” strikes me as very interesting .I am talking about The Discovery’s new tv series  “One Car too Far ”This is the new series starts on discovery channel. It is  for those people , who are crazy about the adventures ride , &  Camping or in simple we can say that it is for those who like challenges on ROAD .
It's all about the drive to survive. What happens when you 'MacGyver-ize' a car? In One Car Too Far former British Special Forces operative and an American car junkie are dropped into incredible landscapes and forced to work together to survive and ultimately escape to safety. The twist, they will have to take a small red car with them. It's the perfect combination as one knows how to drive and the other knows how to survive. With no proper roads and no real supplies, the two must rely on instinct and expertise alone to make it out. From the treacherous slopes and near-freezing temperatures of a mountain top, to the wet, dense vegetation of the rainforest, they use whatever supplies they can find to turn a regular car into an all-purpose vehicle to get them over, under and through just about any obstacle in their way.
The most attracting thing in this series........ the  Red Ruby Jeep Wrangler
Jeep Wrangler is known for its ability to push boundaries. The world just got smaller with significant improvements in both performance and fuel economy, your adventure can last longer.
 Jeep Wrangler is dropped in the middle of a Chilean rainforest and then driven out within three days by a gear enthusiast and an ex-marine, all while surviving the elements.We can see that , how Two men and a Jeep survived in the toughest climate . The Jeep wrangler has going beyond the Limit.This serial will provide  the good knowledge to the Offroder drivers  .
In the series they  use the old Wrangler Jeep but we can share with you the information  about   new RUBICON Introducing the 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine rated at 17 city / 21 hwy mpg + . Jeep brand engineers boosted fuel efficiency 10 percent. Gone are the days of giving up performance for fuel efficiency to enjoy the ride that much more. Significant value with all the upgrades and no significant increase in price. 40 percent more horsepower. 10 percent more torque. 26 percent faster 0-60 mph. Wrangler kicks it up more than just a few notches. The 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine delivers 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. All this power and improved fuel efficiency.


The Jeep brand has always been about choosing your own path. Our incomparable range of sophisticated 4WD systems let you find your own way up, down, through or around almost anything. Jeep 4x4s are champions in all-weather capability so you'll be ready for anything Mother Nature throws your way.
The Rock-Trac 4WD system delivers more control, more torque at the wheels and lets you go virtually anywhere you point it. The Rock-Trac 4:1 low-gear ratio and crawl speed provides the Rubicon with greater torque at the wheels — making it easier to trek over obstacles like large rocks and timber and ascend or descend sharp inclines.

When to use:

High range:
All road surfaces, including wet or snow-covered pavement, sand or gravel.
Low range:
Conditions requiring added low-speed power, technical driving, and situations when added torque is helpful (e.g. pulling a boat trailer out of water).
