Porsche 911 Targa 4S Exclusive Edition unveiled at AutoRAI 2015
No decked out Turbo S.... not even a base Turbo S. In holland, a Turbo costs 201.800 while the Turbo S starts at 234.300. The standard 911 Targa 4S starts at around 158K in holland, including taxes (20+% VAT and another 20-40% BPM luxury goods tax). So ye... there is a pretty big price difference. Porsche btw states the car also comes with a photo album of the car and the assembly of it.

Mercedes-AMG says they will embrace autonomous vehicle tech
Mercedes-AMG is the name of the division since the whole renaming strategy. It did not only include changes like GLK-GLC and ML-GLE, but also divided Mercedes cars in 3 labels: Mercedes-Benz, Mercedes-Maybach and Mercedes-AMG. Also had its effect on names, cars now being called like Mercedes-AMG C63 instead of C63 AMG.

Mercedes-AMG GT scale models revealed, prices start at €34.90
Perhaps interesting to mention the 1/12 Premium Classixxs are RESIN, aka nothing can be opened.

Mercedes-Benz GLE likely debuting on April 1 in New York
Might be weird, but if I see how many cars they're ''redoing'' now, I'd have the idea this method might have most cars affected in one go.

Mercedes-Benz 190 SL turns 60
Would fit better to look at the SLK.

Mercedes-Benz SL facelift spied for the first time
Plastic addon pieces to mask bodydesign. Remember the Maserati Gran Turismo that looked like a shooting-brake?

Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe to be unveiled at Frankfurt Motor Show?
Bad luck then, that's what keeps the sedan and coupe apart. Rather curious though what they want to borrow from the GT. Roofline without a seperate trunk? Headlight shape (like SL not following the grille contour)?

Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR spotted cruising the streets of Paris [video]
The sentence in the article is a copypaste from wikipedia (and the ''recent'' vid is from this summer...). There are 2 RHD cars, 1 coupe and 1 roadster.

Porsche dealer allegedly forgets to put PDK Sport button on a new GT3
This is not really a unique case, nor is it specifically a Porsche matter. It happens with more car builders, including Mercedes ánd Porsche. Perhaps some retrofitter guy could be of use. Some of the Mercs suffering from lacking equipment get sent to a retrofitting expert (or he travels to the car) and he then adds the missing stuff, with all genuine parts, the way the factory would do it.

Mercedes-Benz GLC spied testing on banked track [video]
True to that. Horrible vids with music, some cat photos (not saying cats suck, but why in a spyvideo). Better stick to Touriclips for some PROPER spy videos, even if most of it is only on the Ring and Nordschleife.

Daimler rules out Aston Martin takeover
That's engineering related. If they can get exemptions, it means less costs and time required. Actual management is not that. Actual management is defining corporate strategies on how the brand has to develop itself on short and long term, on what aspects their products will focus and how they want to grow. Aston already has all that sort of settled with their current focus and numbers. Anything else would require investments, perhaps in new plants and processes for example. Daimler is a high-volume builder, Aston is a low to low-mid volume builder. Each requires a different approach to stand firm, and if either has to watch over the other one too, they can't focus on one brand... That is management.

Mercedes-Maybach S600 to be joined by S500 and S400 MATIC versions
Maybach 59? 57 or 62.

Mercedes MLC AMG spied again including first interior picture
Still they could take more effort into burrying it in a space on top of the dash instead of literally slapping it with some plastic bell on top of the dash. They can do it, the AMG-GT proofs it. Also I think it would be less as bad if they'd actually make the displaying portion of the tablet a lot bigger. The black-frame bit is too big now.

2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman spied flaunting its six doors
Look at high-res photos, you can clearly see a a doorhandle on that entirely camouflaged center section. So, 6 doors.

2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman spied flaunting its six doors
Look at the high-res photos, you can clearly see the doorhandle plus the cavity of it in the ''bridging'' section. So yes, 6 doors.

1200 bhp Minerva J.M. Brabazon supercar detailed
Somebody's been creative with google sketchup I see. Not the most ideal software to design cars in. It also looks a lot more worse than the white/black car of the previous articles.

Mercedes-AMG GT to stick around for at least two generations
@benzboy: sales of the SL aren't great though and the car fails designwise to be an up-to-date part of MB's line up. 2015 the SL is facelifted to have looks matching the rest of the lineup better

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT interior partially revealed in fresh spy pics
No it's not, AMG indicated several times earlier they would name it differently to increase the distance with the SLS, since this car was not meant to be considered a mere hot-washed SLS.

2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class officially revealed with three engines and AIRMATIC
In place of the plate insert in the center console. You can configure a C-Class on the Merc websites, and under the list of technological features you can select the manual trans. It should update the interior illustration.

2015 Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake spied up close
A roadster was cancelled, MB saw more marketingabilities with a shootingbrake CLA.

Amazing private car collection showcased, five Veyrons and an F40 included [video]
I can only think of Rimac and the EV SLS-AMG, first one not (yet?) built, second built on special order.

Infiniti Q30 rendered as a production model
Image is a photoshopped pressphoto of the current-gen A-Class, hence the similarities.

Mercedes Vito & V-Class could be headed to the U.S. - report
That indeed is the Sprinter, this is the Viano/Vito/V-Class which are positioned below it.

Mercedes S-Class Shooting Brake gets rendered, should the company build it?
Just a low R-Class, without the massive space the R-Class offered.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class details emerge, liftback planned - report
I agree it reads odd. I assume Adrian means some engines are carried over unchanged, some are too but improved and some are entirely new.

Spyker B6 Venator to use a Lotus-built engine - report
Your post is what's embarrassing if you can't figure out by yourself what it takes to develop and build an engine for a sportscar.

Lorinser previews Mercedes-Benz S-Class wide body kit
Picture looks like it's a car for Synetic's Alarm fur Cobra 11 games...

2015 Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake Facelift spied almost undisguised inside & out
You've got to be joking... more iPads standing on the dashboards. Maybe time to fire the team responsible for the interiordesigns.

Volkswagen losing an unbelievable 6.27M USD for each Bugatti Veyron sold
Unbelievable how much money they lose on a Veyron... although ofcourse Porsche Audi and VW pull in a lot of cash. Perhaps enough to compensate for a prestige project.
