Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid
When It Hits: Porsche says the Hybrid 918 Spyder will begin to arrive in the United States near the end of 2013.
What Priddy Says: With an official introduction some time away, select journalists are already driving similar prototypes in Germany. The 918 Spyder prototypes are still a bit rough around the edges, but this is currently the closest anyone has gotten to the vehicle here in the United States.
2014 Chevrolet Silverado HD
When It Hits: Speculation is that the ’14 Silverado HD will be available near the end of 2013.
What Priddy Says: While slightly more detail of the front grille and fascia are noticeable compared to previous shots, the Priddy team did not have an opportunity to spy what was under the hood. However, the Silverado does appear to have a roomier interior than current models
2014 Infiniti G37
When It Hits: The on-sale date for the updated G37 will be sometime in the third quarter of 2013, and it will be sold throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.
What Priddy Says: Even though this vehicle is clad with an obnoxious black and white appliqué, there is still no mistaking it for the next G37. In addition to the sedan, coupe and convertible versions, as well as diesel and hybrid offerings are expected.
When It Hits: With the next-generation Panamera planned for the ’16 model year, Porsche is freshening the current version with a facelift for the ’14 model.
What Priddy Says: Based on the size and shape of the camouflage, the freshened Panamera resembles—headlamp- and fascia-wise—the future signature look of the Panamera Sport Turismo Concept recently introduced in Paris.
