The Next Big Thing From Mercedes-Benz – Baker Motor Company – Charleston, SC

May 19, 2015

You can expect BIG things from Mercedes-Benz in the future!


In a flowing transition, Mercedes-Benz lands the next coup: the Concept GLC Coupé is a near-production-standard study that carries the successful GLE Coupé formula over into a more compact segment. The dynamically expressive show car combines typical stylistic features of a coupé with the sensually pure design idiom of coming SUV generations. This emotively appealing fusion is further enriched with details that are strong in character. A twin-blade radiator grille, powerdomes on the hood and a four-pipe exhaust system form an aesthetic contrast to the harmonious, almost organic main body section. On the other hand, elements from the rugged off-road world, such as enormous 21-inch tires, front and rear underbody protection, increased ground clearance and side running boards, are indicative of the off-road performance potential of the Concept GLC Coupé.

Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG, puts it in a nutshell: “With its modern and sensual design idiom, the Concept GLC Coupé gives a foretaste of future SUV models from Mercedes-Benz. At the same time, it embraces the typical values of tradition-steeped Mercedes-Benz coupés”.

Connect Your Porsche to Your Apple Watch

May 7, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-05-07 at 11.29.56 AMThe release of the Apple Watch is a leap forward in terms of wearable technology for Apple users.

Porsche owners with an Apple Watch are in luck.  The automaker has already created an Apple watch-specific app called Porsche Car Connect app.

Porsche is one of the first in the car industry to create an app specific for the Apple watch. With the app, Porsche owners can check a variety of vehicle attributes including: trip information, fuel efficiency, Porsche vehicle locator, security alarm alerts, check battery range and odometer Readings.

The app also allows drivers to do the following; start the engine remotely, honk the horn, flash the lights and control temperature- pretty cool.

Porsche’s continued reputation for staying ahead of the curve will most likely mean updates to the app to make it even more powerful in the future.
