November 2021 New Cars on the Block (Part 2)

The automotive industry is continually adapting and evolving, and sometimes it feels as if there is a new vehicle announcement every day.  November has been particularly full of new car releases, and today we bring you our second installment of New Cars on the Block!

Nissan Ariya

Nissan’s first electric crossover is a markedly different animal than the current Leaf subcompact.  Going upscale is hard, but the $47,125 Nissan appears, at least initially, to pack a heavy punch.  Boasting 300-mile range, reservations for the Ariya are open now with first deliveries anticipated in Fall 2022. 

Porsche Cayman GT4 RS 

Porsche’s mid-engine top dog is here!  Featuring 911 GT3 power and further track focusing, this 493 horsepower weapon should be one of the brand’s most coveted cars.  Get in line now!  

Porsche Taycan GTS Sedan / Sport Turismo 

In a world where Porsche systematically releases their various trim levels of new models, the GTS variants of the new Taycan EV are right on time.  The GTS cars have always been the purest in essence, never the fastest.  How this translates to EV performance is to be determined, but bigger brakes and torque vectoring likely won’t hurt the equation.

Genesis G90

In what seems to be a constant pursuit for excellence, the G90 is getting updated again.  And just look at it!  With flowing lines and more than a little bit of road presence, the G90 is doing what Lexus did in the early 90s with the LS and has put a competent luxury sedan on the market.  We are very excited to see these when they start hitting dealerships next year! 

Kia Concept EV9

It is difficult to post just one photo of the exceptionally sharp Kia EV9.  Touted as having a similar dimension and stature to the existing class-leading Telluride, the EV9 promises 300-mile range capability and a posh interior.  Although a concept vehicle right now, all the indications point to it being added to Kia’s EV lineup. 

BMW Concept XM

BMW has announced its first dedicated M platform car since the M1, and it isn’t a car!  The XM concept, set to go on sale next year, combines twin-turbo V8 and plug-in hybrid capability to yield 750 horsepower.  It also features a very interesting velvet rear bench seat, with more to come on that later… 

In Other News….

The Toyota Camry lineup has been expanded to include the Nightshade Hybrid.  Previously only available in non-hybrid models, the Nightshade embellishes the window trim, badging, door handles, mirror caps, and shark fin antenna in black, with the addition of 18-inch black alloys. More Camry derivatives always find buyers so it comes as no surprise that Toyota will mix and match features, styling, and powertrains to find their perfect buyer. 

To celebrate 50 years, BMW is bringing back their classic M badge for some models with the M Sport package and 50 of their most famous ///M paint finishes including Daytona Violet and Macao Blue.  We are uber excited for this throwback! 

Porsche is expanding their popular and lucrative Paint-to-Sample program to include 160+ different colors.  Allowing buyers the opportunity to create visionary one-offs, and the brand to create buzz, this is a win:win for both.

One thought on “November 2021 New Cars on the Block (Part 2)

  1. Don’t know about you but I find that 20mph is the worst possible speed for fuel consumption. 3rd gear is just a shade too high, so you end up in 2nd, burning nearly twice the fuel you would at 30mph in 4th. Presumably with the equivalent increase in exhaust fumes as well. This effect is worsened by speed bumps and the resulting slowing and accelerating.
