Scott27, the usual BMW insider, is back with some more rumors. The focus of this latest rumormill is the long-time rumored X7, the revival of the sadly canceled CS Concept, the first M supercar in a long time and the new generation 7 Series. If you’re a loyal reader of BMWBLOG then you would know that we always advise to take these rumors with a grain of salt and to remember that production plans change and models are often canceled.
Let’s have a look (minor grammar editing):
Although it does not seem much in real life terms it does matter to the auto industry and in all respect the Premium manufacturers who produce cars in the higher price stratosphere. 1 Million units is what luxury car sales are expected to grow to by 2015. Propelled by new and emerging markets and established tent pole markets.
With the attention on BMW i and BMW UKL/MINI being the main focus , this past few years. BMW are back to determining their next phase of penetration towards the high end luxury market. High end luxury cars they will be but every aspect of BMW EfficientDynamics technology will be a key feature.

To hear automakers and environmentalists tell it, electric vehicles (EVs) are the greenest and cleanest solution to personal mobility. But in his book Green Illusions: The Dirty Secrets of Clean Energy and the Future of Environmentalism, author Ozzie Zehner argues that EVs are more symbolism and marketing than environmental and fossil-fuel saviors. And in many cases, EVs are actually worse for the environment than traditional gas-powered vehicles.
To prove this, Zehner, a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley, points to what he views as the fuel-inefficient process of manufacturing EVs, and claims that they don’t make a big difference in greenhouse-gas emissions. He also contends that electric cars won’t protect the U.S. against future oil price fluctuations, as many claim, and that it’s a fallacy that prices for EVs will fall as the technology matures. He also maligns tax subsidies and government spending that support EV production as misguided. But two well-respected alternative powertrain reporters take issue with most of Zehner’s and the book’s arguments against EVs.
The new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and the Ford Shelby GT500 are the two most exciting muscle cars to hit American roads this year. To find out which is the better buy, Chris Harris flew across the Atlantic to take both for a spin.
This is the face-off of all face-offs – a total of 1,259-hp.

You’re probably not going to see Jennifer Hawkins swanning around in a Toyota Kluger anytime soon – and you won’t find a poster of one hanging on your son’s bedroom wall next to the Lamborghini Aventador and the NSW/Queensland State of Origin team, either.
Affordable family-size SUVs that bow to function over form just don’t get that kind of attention.
The current-generation Toyota Kluger was launched in Australia in 2007 and benefitted from a fairly substantial facelift in 2010 that included a new bonnet, grille, bumpers, front guards, headlamps, tail-lights and door mouldings.
While the update went some way to maintaining a contemporary look for the Kluger, styling probably isn’t going to be a key selling point.
Australia is now set to receive the next-generation Kluger in the latter half of 2013, but this time it won’t be made in Japan.

ADV1 Wheels, Aston Martin, Car News — By Lawrence on July 7, 2012 at 5:47 pm — No Comments

Another fantastic looking project completed by the US aftermarket wheel expert!
After many years of absence from the luxury car segment, Mitsubishi is going to give it another try with the revival of the Proudia and Dignity nameplates for the Japanese market.
In a strange turn of fate, whereas the original Proudia and Dignity from the late 1990s – early 2000s were designed by Mitsubishi and co-manufactured with Hyundai, which marketed its own versions as the rebadged Centennial and Equus (not to be confused with the current Equus), Mitsubishi is now the one to rebrand the two models.
To explain, the Proudia and the more luxurious, long wheelbase Dignity are the products of an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) deal with the Nissan Group and are based on the Infiniti M and the China-market Infiniti M35hL LWB (sold as the new Nissan Cima in Japan) respectively.
Mitsubishi tells us that the Proudia moniker is coined from the English words “Proud” and “Diamond” (referring to the company’s logo), while the Dignity took its name from “the English word that describes the peerless grandeur and majestic stateliness of the model”.
Mitsubishi’s contributions to the Proudia and Dignity are limited to the waterfall front grille, the re-sculptured front bumper and the addition of badges.
Built by Design Craft, this one-off zombie killer will obviously never enter production… unless the nightmarish scenario comes to life.
