2015 Porsche Panamera Pricing

Most of you may have heard about the Porsche Panamera. In fact, even you don’t have enough money to afford one,  you can easily rent one from Hertz in almost all major US airport rental locations, see our earlier article here.

Exhaust Pipes: Ugly vs. Beautiful

If you have been paying attention to the exhaust pipes underneath each car, you may find that some of them are very visible and looks like they are just hanging loosely. For example take a look at the below photo of the 2015 Lexus NX300h, you can clearly see how the single pipe is located in the underbody, going through the rear suspension arms and finally reach the exhaust tips.
