On a Sad Note, Lexus May Very Well Kill the GS Sedan

One of our favorite practical and premium cars bites it

We love what Lexus is doing, and it seems they're on a roll in re-branding themselves as something more enthusiast-oriented and a bit less geared toward retirees, thank goodness. All this is evidenced by their latest models that include the IS, NX, RX, LC and new, upcoming and very attractive LS flagship. It's that last model that is leading to the probable axing of the GS sedan line, we're sad to say.

The Lucid Motors Air is an Electrified Steal at $52,500

The fact that it's cheaper than a Tesla S isn't an accident

If there's a serious competitor to the Tesla Model S on the horizon, it's clearly the Lucid Motors Air, a brand new luxury electrified sedan that wowed at CES just a couple of short months ago. Pricing has just been revealed, and it looks like no accident that it undercuts the Model S.

The partial 2018 budget plan released by the Trump administration online recently revealed plans for some pretty big changes in the coming future.

Green Autos: The Acura MDX Sport Hybrid

It's the most powerful Acura SUV with NSX DNA

The Acura MDX Sport Hybrid will be the best version of the model yet. It gets better gas mileage and has more power than other versions of the model. The attractive luxury three-row SUV utilizes a very similar hybrid powertrain system as the Acura NSX. However, it's a heck of a lot more useful to the everyday driver than the NSX is, although not nearly as fun.

5 Fake Styling Elements That Spread Like the Measles

Nobody needs these design elements on their car

Every few years, some kind of design element seems to take over the automotive industry. While this design proliferation can be good, often automakers copy design elements from high-performance cars in an attempt to spice things up on an otherwise boring model. The result? Stupid and fake design elements that have no real purpose whatsoever.

The Next Buick Regal Will Come in Wagon and Hatchback Sedan Versions

Buick is taking some chances by ditching the sedan

Say goodbye to the Buick Regal sedan as we've known it. The American sedan will undergo not just a redesign but will also take a fairly radical departure from the Regal we've known for numerous generations. General Motors is taking some big chances by introducing two new body styles to the Regal, one in the form of a five-door hatchback and the other a station wagon, the likes of which Buick hasn't done in two decades.

10 Cars with the Best Taillights are Beautiful to Behold from Behind

These are the cars you'll know just by the lights

It's amazing just how much small details can impact how you feel about a car. One detail that we've found can make a big difference are lights, specifically taillights. The taillights on a car are an important part of its identity. Just think about driving at night. Without being able to see the red glow of the car's taillights in front of you, not only would you likely get into an accident, but you'd have little chance of telling what the thing is.

Lexus Will Definitely Build The Crazy UX Crossover

This origami on wheels is aimed at younger buyers

Take one look at the Lexus UX Concept that showed up at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, and you realize it's about the furthest departure from what Lexus built their reputation on, conservatively designed luxury cars aimed at the upper middle class and middle aged. Lexus recently announced that they will aim at younger buyers with a production version of the radical UX, and it's probably not as far off as you'd think.

The First American Solar Roadway is Utterly Worthless

Looks like first time is not a charm, they've failed completely

The Rumor Mill: The Volkswagen Microbus

The Volkswagen hippie van will return recharged

Volkswagen showed off the ID Buzz concept at the recent Paris Motor Show. The fully electric microbus certainly got people talking, and VW let the world know that it was going to focus more on electric vehicles with hopes of selling 1 million EVs per year by 2025. A big part of that is expected by many to be some kind of microbus like the ID Buzz concept.
