Here’s What Makes The Porsche Taycan 4 Cross Turismo So Great

Porsche recently invited FlatSixes to drive its latest creation, the all-electric Taycan 4 Cross Turismo. As great as the standard Taycan sedan is, we actually prefer the wagon version, as it gives up very little in dynamic enjoyment, while providing much more daily livability for you and your family. In addition to hauling butt, you can also haul everything you need for a long weekend away, or even a cross-country road trip for four adults and maybe even a dog. Other companies are trying to bu...

Porsche makes its case for an all-electric Taycan wagon

Porsche has always gone its own way when it comes to creating new vehicles. It is, after all, the company that continues to stick to the wacky idea that putting the weight of an engine in the rear of a sports car is a great idea. (It is!) So, bucking the crossover trend to create an all-electric, soft-roading wagon with just 20 more millimeters of clearance than their popular electric Taycan sedan isn’t out of character for the brand. Instead, it’s another example of how Porsche approaches elect...

Review: Riding the new Harley-Davidson Pan America

“I got to say, you’re looking older.”—Ellis “I am older.”—Sheriff Ed Tom Bell Amongst my Rushmore of cherished films, No Country For Old Men anoints the viewer with myriad lyrical gems and witticisms. The above exchange percolated to the front when, not five minutes into my arrival at Harley-Davidson’s press launch of their new Pan America 1250, an affable employee offered two-inch “Tall Risers” and a “Tallboy” seat. At 6’6” and having worked on the OEM side for numerous bike launches, this...

Audi A6 e-tron concept: The Magnificent Return of “Vorsprung Durch Technik”

The Audi A6 e-tron concept made its debut at Auto Shanghai 2021. I’m a massive sucker for Audi concept vehicles. The brand has a habit of presenting concept cars that are 90 to 95 percent ready for production. And upon laying eyes on Audi’s magnificent-looking A6 e-tron concept, only three words entered my mind: Vorsprung Durch Technik. Setting The Stage The Vorsprung Durch Technik tagline is responsible for the high-tech persona of modern Audi vehicles. In English, it means Advancement ...

Some Tesla cars, including the Model Y Performance, fell behind their EPA range in a new study that even took their safety buffer into account

Tesla CEO Elon Musk. PETER PARKS/AFP via Getty Images A new study by Edmunds suggests that the ranges of Tesla's cars fall below their EPA estimates.

McLaren Artura: Defining The New Hybrid Supercar Rulebook

Roughly eight years ago, McLaren kickstarted the hybrid-electric supercar race with the magnificent yet unhinged P1. The Artura succeeds the P1 as McLaren’s ultimate hybrid supercar, but the new Artura is not a replacement for the P1. For starters, the McLaren Artura has less horsepower than the P1. It is also more “economical,” with base prices starting in the $225,000 range, much less than the P1’s astronomical $1.5 million asking price. Despite this, Artura is truly special. It’s the first...
