The company founded by Ferdinand Porsche has been in the business of building vehicles -- sports cars, SUVs and race cars – since 1931. The brand has long catered to the needs of motorists wanting a sporty ride built from around 24,000 auto race wins, including over 50 class victories at Le Mans. Meanwhile, consumers who want premium honey could also get it from Porsche.
Yes, the aforementioned information is right. Porsche is indeed now producing honey, not as a major source of income, but as part of a sustainability program. This honey – derived from 1.5 million honey bees from the company’s off-road area near its Leipzig plant – is now being sold in the Porsche Leipzig customer center shop under the name “Turbienchen.”
These bees aren’t the only inhabitants in Porsche’s off-road area. According to the German sports car maker, the nature reserve is now home to other wild animals like deer, amphibians, hares, birds, and bats. Everything was set into motion when the sports car company established colonies of Exmoor ponies and aurochs in the off-area, which measures around 132 hectares. As time passed, this off-area became a nature reserve, an offshoot of the company’s sustainable pasture concept at Porsche Leipzig.Read the entire article Porsche is selling honey produced at its nature reserve area in Leipzig
In 2013, Mercedes-Benz started offering a novel way to make the vaunted Mercedes-Benz star on the grille more noticeable in the dark – by illumination. This simple but innovative illuminated Mercedes-Benz star managed to attain huge success, with increasingly more customers availing of this option from Mercedes’ original-parts program. Now, this program is offering another way to spice up a Mercedes vehicle – the new LED Projector AMG Emblem feature.
Mercedes is making the LED Projector AMG Emblem available to almost every model in its lineup. This means that whether a customer drives an A-Class or is hitting the road in a GLS, he or she could have this customization feature be installed on his or her ride. However, the LED Projector AMG Emblem could only be fitted on Mercedes model with the door lighting packages that come with factory-installed entrance light mounted at the bottom of the front doors. Once installed, the LED Projector AMG Emblem would replace the factory-installed entrance lights.
Once the driver or front passengers open their respective doors, the AMG emblem – an apple tree on the river that symbolizes the company’s location in Affalterbach, Germany – would be projected into the entrance area in a three-dimensional manner through the entrance lighting mechanism located at the bottom of the front door. This mechanism makes one’s entry into a Mercedes vehicle more special, allowing the driver or the front passenger to enjoy a more exceptional experience.Read the entire article Show your love for the Mercedes-AMG brand with a new option: the LED Projector AMG Emblem
Dodge Challenger SRT Demon owners are in for a special treat after Dodge has recently announced that it is making their cars extra special by offering exclusive aftermarket car accessories. Included in the collection are some fancy car covers, a leather-bound track manual and the optionally available street tires for drag performance enthusiasts.
The Pirelli performance tires which come in the sizes of 305/35ZR20 will be wrapped on the 20-inch standard wheels that suit the Challenger Hellcat’s Widebody set-up. The package is only offered on the Dodge Demon which is available for purchase through Mopar Performance Parts and Accessories. Given that the stock drag radials may also be prone to damage especially in colder climates, having an extra set of high performance tires is not far from being a necessity.
Among the aftermarket products currently available are Mopar’s rear seat delete package which gives the owners the option to remove the rear seat if they initially availed the Demon to come with the rear seat. This may sound simple but the package offers all the necessary parts and hardware that would have been used in the first place had the customer chose the Demon without the rear seat ready.Read the entire article Aftermarket add-ons now available for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
During the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, Land Rover presented something that no other automaker has before - an off-road stroller for parents to use when transporting their toddlers. In other words, Land Rover came up with a baby carriage that is perfect for babies who would like to go off roading but are not capable of walking yet.
Land Rover was able to make this possible by entering a partnership with iCandy and creating an all-terrain stroller dubbed as the iCandy Peach All-Terrain Special Edition push chair. With these capabilities, no one expects this stroller to be easily affordable. In fact, it comes with a $2,000 price tag.
We're letting you guys decide whether or not this stroller is worth your money for what it is. In fact, one might get an actual off-roader vehicle that's probably been worn out for the same price. Furthermore, your kid might already have learned how to walk even before you finish paying for this stroller.Read the entire article Would you pay for a $2,000 offroad-ready Land Rover baby stroller?
Those who will attend the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show will be able to personally witness the Mercedes-Benz EQ A Concept, but if you want to experience something even more high-tech, check out the automaker’s E-Class Estate that features an augmented reality roof box. You’ll probably wonder how Mercedes-Benz Accessories’ demonstration works. Well, visitors of the auto show will have to use Microsoft’s HoloLens glasses and a camera to recognize their hand movements, which lets them store skis and bags into the storage space.
Some of you may not be into high-tech gimmicks like this, and that’s completely fine because Mercedes-Benz Accessories will also display several customized X-Class pickups that will demonstrate the wide variety of available parts to improve the truck’s overall appearance. These include soft or hard tonneau covers for the truck, a bed cap, styling bars, side steps, a bed liner and storage box. For a more durable and a better off road truck, Mercedes can offer you a three-piece stainless steel underbody guard to protect the engine, transmission and exhaust system.
It is not just the pickup that Mercedes will be putting on display in Frankfurt. A GLC Coupe will feature the company’s aftermarket roof spoiler. In the cabin, passengers will get an attachment point that fits a coat hanger, folding table, a camera mount, or tablet holder. The C-Class Estate gets the same item too. The GLA-Class, on the other hand, will be getting roof rail tracks. This lets the compact crossover carry the Mercedes-Benz Mountain Bike, with a carbon fiber frame and 3.9 inches (100 millimeters) of suspension travel. Last but not the least, the S-Class Cabrio sits on a set of 10-spoke, 20-inch wheels.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz will entice customers with a wide range of accessories at Frankfurt
If you have always wanted the really pricey Porsche Design 911 Soundbar that looks like a 911 GT3 exhaust and costs $3,500, there is a new alternative that you might want to consider for your home - that is the 911 Speaker that is also by Porsche Design. Though this speaker is not a replication of any part of the 911, it costs almost $3,000 less at only $599.
By looking at the design of the speakers, the closest thing it looks like would be the dual exhausts of the GT3. The compact speakers have dimensions of 11.42 inches long, 6.1 inches wide, and 4.7 inches in height (290 x 155 x 120 millimeters). As for the quality, the speakers are made of aluminum housing that is finished in high-gloss black.

Inside, it has a lithium-ion battery pack that can play your music for as long as 24 hours, and the best part is the fact that it supports voice commands.
But that is not all it features, if you get two of these, you will be able to pair both devices for a stereo sound, unlocking a new feature. One will act as the left component, while the other will act as the right one. It is either that, or both speakers will broadcast the same music from two different parts of your home, enabling it to fill a larger space.Read the entire article You can now have supercar sound in your home with Porsche Design 911 Speaker
