Only they have moved to $90K+ crossovers rather than fast sports sedans (and sports cars).

Yes, changing times.  But they are also still doing high powered sports sedans and sports cars also..

More people are willing to spend $90k on an SUV than are on a sports car.

Yep....I will happily watch companies like Porsche build SUVs if they keep building 911s.

Yet let's admit that auto's period are all overpriced. If our salary went in sync with auto prices, we all would be making $500,000 a year.

WHAT IS SHE GLARING AT.. and WHY???

I can't believe I'm the first to comment on the fact that these BULLSHIT commercials make me want to hurl. Is luxury really about just be STRAIGHT FACED and STARK??? YUCK!!! Its like what has society gone to? FUCK THESE PEOPLE!!! It's almost as bad as the Verizon commercial with the guy walking his dog and he keeps asking .."Is this a test?" to the other weaker looking male. or every GOD DAMN Subaru commercial that pulls on the heart strings of society.. except this is like Gattaca.. which was a great concept of a movie, and the art direction was stunning..  but it shouldn't be emulated in real life.

 

BTW.. despite Cadillac coming out with the XT6.. the Escalade (Navigator, LX470, GL and Denali) is this X7's direct competitor. That is literally why BMW finally, after 10 years of talking about it.. came to the market with it.

So... the V8 is a $19,000 option??

The V12 will probably be a $50,000 option.

Does BMW even have a truly modern V12? Is it ancient like Mercedes'? 

N74.  Dates to 2008, but has had some revisions since then.  Used in the 7 series and Rollers.

      If you were hoping that Chevrolet would bring the house down next month with the debut of the mid-engine Corvette at the Detroit Auto Show, we have some bad news for you.
      GM Authority has learned from GM that Chevrolet isn't planning to show anything car or crossover related at the show. Motor Authority was able to confirm this report by speaking to sources who know GM's plans for future vehicles. It is expected that the Cadillac XT6 crossover will debut at the show.
      Rumor has it that GM could debut the mid-engine Corvette at the New York Auto Show - the original 1953 Corvette debuted at the Motorama event that year in New York - or hold its own event to have the media focus on the new model and nothing else. The latter option seems the most likely to us.
      We'll keep you posted if anything changes.

      We have been talking about the next-generation Jetta GLI for almost a year. The next-generation model is expected to get some infusion from the GTI with the same turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder producing 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It will also swap the torsion-beam rear suspension for a multi-link setup. The one item we have been wondering is where Volkswagen is planning on debuting it. For some time, we thought the Detroit Auto Show in January would be the place. But Autoblog reports that the Windy City will be the place for the GLI.
      A Volkswagen representative told the outlet the next GLI would be premiering during the Chicago Auto Show's Press Days - February 7th and 8th.

      Nissan's showing at last week's LA Auto Show was a bit underwhelming with mid-cycle refreshes of the Maxima and Murano. But Nissan had bigger plans for LA. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Japanese automaker was planning to show a longer-range version of the Leaf EV. The model would increase range from 151 miles to 225 miles via a larger battery pack. The Journal reports that Nissan had rented space in the Japanese American National Museum for the media unveiling and hired Hollywood actress Margot Robbie to introduce the model.
      But the reveal was postponed. 
      “The official announcement regarding details of the 2019 Nissan Leaf with additional performance capabilities is postponed to a later date,” Nissan said in a statement.
      A spokesman went on to say that the reveal was delayed “to ensure that this important product unveiling could receive the coverage it merits.”
      Emphasis mine.
      Currently, the coverage at Nissan deals with the arrest of former Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn over alleged misuse of company funds and understating his income. This would have overshadowed the introduction of the updated Leaf.
      It is unclear when Nissan is planning to show off the revised Leaf, but it may take awhile. This week alone saw new allegations come against Ghosn for having a salary above a cap set by shareholders and that he passed on personal losses totaling more than a billion yen ($8.8 million) from derivative trading on to the company. Over at Nissan, the company has pushed back a decision on nominating a successor to Ghosn as chairman. It is expected that a recommendation made by a  three-member panel of external Nissan directors will present their choice to the board later this month.
