According to reports, the Toyota-BMW sports car collaboration will be built in Austria by Magna Steyr. Production of both cars will launch in 2018; the manufacturers are planning to build only 60,000 units annually.

Breaking! 2017 Buick LaCrosse pricing is in. The modest sedan will start at $37k and is likely to soar past $45k with all the options piled on. The 305hp 3.6-liter V-6 should bring some swagger to the brand.

According to credible reports, the next generation 2018 C8 Corvette will move the engine to just behind the passenger. This will be the first mid-engine production Corvette in history. Along with this fancy mid-engine alteration might come a hefty, 50% increase in base price.

Gear

If you're sick of waking up to the harsh buzz of the bedside alarm you've used for the past 10 years, ditch the old piece of junk and buy a Philips Wake Light. Gently waking you with natural light over the course of 30 minutes, the Philips Wake Light mimics the sunrise so you can start your day as peacefully as possible. Plus, if you fear the light won’t wake you from your slumber, you can use the "birds chirping" feature for a little extra encouragement.

Stop what you are doing and order a Hammocraft. If you're good at breaking down portmanteaus, you might guess that the Hammocraft is a hammock, watercraft hybrid. (You are correct.)

Lifestyle

How confident are you? If your reply is "SUPER," purchase a pair of Chubbies Khakmeisters. With an aggressive five-inch inseam, these Khakis bare almost too much thigh.
