Why get a Porsche 911? "Because it's ... iconic," said the owner of this 2020 model, Houston, Texas resident Christian Brown.

The car was first introduced in September 1964 and has undergone continuous development while still holding true to its design heritage. A new, eighth generation of the car debuted in 2019 and given the 992 designation.

Craig Bethscheider of Cypress, Texas traded for this 1957 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery in 2016, marking his 50th '57. The only thing he's updated since he purchased it is the drivetrain, which now features modern components.

The car was originally produced under the Chevrolet One-Fifty line and 1957 was its swan song. For '58, the One-Fifty lineup was replaced by the Delray.

The LeMans Blue paint job is the key reason Craig Beecher owns this 2005 Chevrolet Corvette Z51. He said, " I hunted for this car, nation wide. It just popped up, 50 miles from me, one morning." He paid $18,000 for it in 2019.

Since purchase, Beecher has modified the car a bit. There's a new Borla back axle, Hurst shifter, and SLC cold air intake.

The car already came with the the Z51 package, which includes a stiffer suspension, larger brakes than the typical 'Vette, a six-speed manual transmission with shorter ratios, and a transmission-oil cooler. Legendary Car & Driver editor Csaba Csere was impressed with the car's performance with the added package, giving it high marks when it was new.

The Denali Ultimate trim is new for 2023.

GMC

The GMC Yukon has always been a luxurious family hauler with beefy capability, but it moved even more upmarket in recent years with added tech and upscale interior materials. GMC just announced an even cushier version of the SUV for the 2023 model year. The Yukon Ultimate Denali gets unique styling touches and upgrades that take the already plush SUV to another level.

2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate22-inch wheels are standard GMC

The Denali Ultimate gets exclusive upgrades over other trims that include 22-inch wheels and chrome accents outside. The full-size SUV just got a complete redesign for 2021, which brought updated boxy styling, and a sleek look, so there are no additional exterior changes for 2023.

GMC offers three engines in the standard Yukon, but only two make it into the Ultimate. The standard powertrain includes a 6.2-liter V8 that produces 420 horsepower. A 3.0-liter turbodiesel is also available that makes 277 horsepower and a whopping 460 pound-feet of torque. A ten-speed automatic transmission is standard for all engines, and four-wheel drive is available.

Inside, the Ultimate comes with Alpine Umber full-grain leather upholstery with 16-way power front seats and massaging. Trim-exclusive contrast stitching and aluminum trim accent the space, and the top model gets an 18-speaker Bose audio system with stainless steel speaker grilles.

A Wi-Fi hotspot and Amazon Alexa functionality are available. GMC also offers Super Cruise hands-free driving system in the Denali Ultimate.

GMC hasn’t detailed pricing for the new SUV yet, but we expect it to start at a premium over the standard Denali, which starts at just over $70,000.

The car is scheduled for limited release late in 2022 as a 2023 model year.

Porsche says the Sport Classic is the first car to get that type of leather since the iconic 918 Spyder.
