SUVs, sorry I meant “crossovers”, have taken the consumer automotive market by storm the last 20 or so years. Consumers are buying them faster than manufacturers are making them in some cases.

Many auto enthusiasts are worried that the mass embracement of electric thrust will kill off any drop of fun that is left with our slowly-dying ICE cars. Tesla has been putting naysayers in their place with the “Insane” and “Ludicrous” modes in their cars for a while now. However, Porsche, makers of some of the best sports cars around, have just put up a green light for the Mission-E, an all-electric sports sedan set to debut in 2020.

Recent tests of the “Holy Trinity” hybrid cars, videos featuring the “Hyper 5”, and spy pictures of the new Bugatti Chiron, have left poor old Lamborghini out of the spotlight. But they will have none of that, especially when next year is Feruccio Lamborghini 100th Birthday. The Lamborghini Centenario will not only celebrate Lamborghini’s centennial, it will no doubt put some of the buzz back on them.
