It seems like Porsche spy shots have been coming out every day recently. Today we catch a glimpse of a barely camouflaged 911 strutting its stuff in Germany. From the body work, it seems like some GT-variant, but it's unclear what, exactly, the model is. Whatever it may be, the thing means business with some serious vent work.

Pricing for the 2017 Lincoln Continental has been released and it isn’t awful compared to its Cadillac competitor, the CTS. Lincoln says their luxury sedan will start at $45,485 and the base engine will be a 300 hp, 3.7L V-6. If you are looking for a few more thrills, customers can opt for a 3.0L turbocharged V-6 good for 400hp.

If the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen wasn’t ridiculous enough, Mercedes is thinking about debuting the Mercedes-Benz 4x4 G-500 in the U.S. The G-500 is a lifted, widened G-Wagen with a massive twin-turbocharged V-8 under the hood. Just be prepared: the color options are fittingly aggressive.

There is something wonderfully satisfying about slowly breaking in a good ol’ fashion leather dopp kit. Thankfully lacking accents, frills, or fancy stitching, the L.L.Bean Signature Leather Toiletry Kit will age beautifully with each adventure you take.

In today’s beer pick, we head up the Hudson River to Yonkers Brewing Company in Yonkers, New York. Founded in 2010, Yonkers Brewing Co has helped build a strong craft beer scene in lower Westchester County. Since 2010, they've expanded their list of beers as well as their presence in the tristate area. If you are a fan of citrus and hop-heavy ales, we recommend you try a pint of Shower Time Pale Ale.
