2015 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid SUV Taps the Spyder for a Little Inspiration

Oct 31, 2014  |   Contributor: JustLuxe Team

The 2015 Porsche Cayenne S has been getting a lot of press lately and judging by the early drive reactions, it deserves it.

Hurricane Sandy Destroys New Shipment of Fisker Karma Hybrids

Nov 8, 2012  |   Contributor: JustLuxe Team

Any owner of a luxury car probably has fears of doing their day-to-day driving in style when there are so many opportunities for the custom paint job to get nicked by fellow drivers and wayward shopping carts. While people probably plan for those events, we doubt everyone really plans for natural disasters. The east coast met with much destruction and tragedy when Hurricane Sandy rolled in, and vehicles certainly weren't spared. While a luxury car being ruined is nothing in the face of the hurricane's full impact, it was certainly a bump in the road for Fisker Automotive.... Read More
