The 2020 Honda Insight begins arriving at dealerships Tuesday (July 16th) with a MSRP of $22,930 (excluding $930 destination and handling). It has an EPA-rated 55 mpg city fuel economy (in LX and EX trims) and, according to Honda, the 2020 Insight "offers best-in-class passenger space, premium interior appointments, upscale styling, and a driving experience that far exceeds its hybrid competition." With 151HP the Insight combines decent acceleration, with a city fuel economy rating that's among the best in its class. Available in LX, EX, and Touring trims, all Insights come standard with multi-element LED headlights, push-button start, and the Honda Sensing® suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. Insight EX adds an 8-inch Display Audio with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, while Insight Touring adds leather seating surfaces, an 8-way power driver's seat, Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™, dual-zone automatic climate control, and more. Editor-In-Chief's Note: The Insight is an attractive package, but is it attractive enough to lure new buyers to Honda? A giant "we'll see." -PMD

Lincoln is adding three Monochromatic Packages for the 2020 model year in its Navigator full-size SUV. The trio of Monochromatic Packages – in Pristine White, Ceramic Pearl and Infinite Black (above) – "reflect the minimalistic color trend popular in fashion and home décor, where variations of a single hue result in a smooth yet vibrant color scheme that’s easy on the eyes," according to Lincoln PR minions. The packages are available on the Navigator Reserve series SUVs. In other words, bring some serious cash-ola.

World-renowned Porsche 356 Builder Rod Emory, owner of Emory Motorsports, has created another one-off Porsche: The Emory Outlaw 911K. “This slab-sided Emory Outlaw 911K is unique,” Rod Emory says. “We specialize in 356s, and we did this 1968 911 SWB as a one-time commission for a special client. The inspiration for this car comes from Porsche 908-010, a K-bodied sports prototype once piloted by Vic Elford. The design cues and livery from that car lend themselves beautifully to this build.”

The 911K’s interior includes 908-inspired front seats with fire-retardant Spanish Red Veltex covers and MOMO 5-point competition harnesses. The MOMO influence continues to the Prototipo steering wheel and shift knob for the 901 five-speed transmission. Other custom additions include the removable roll bar, lightweight door panels and pulls, and leather window straps.

Power for the 911K comes from a later 2.5-liter twin-plug 911 engine. The hot-rodded six-cylinder produces 190HP with the help of an MSD brain, Weber 40 IDA 3C carburetors, and 908-style cookie-cutter megaphones. Other details include a 935 “flat” cooling fan and shroud, hand-laid amber fiberglass airboxes, and a full-flow oil system with remote filter and cooler. A Fuel Safe fuel cell with through-fender competition filler feeds the engine. Emory Motorsports upgraded the brakes with 911 S alloy calipers with custom rotors and hats. Grip is courtesy of the Pirelli CN36 tires on custom 15x7 908-inspired 5-spoke wheels by 1552 rotating on Porsche 935 Carrera centerlock hubs. The suspension was chosen with track days in mind: 3-way fully adjustable KW coil-over gas shocks that provide great drivability in a variety of conditions. Every aspect of the car is built for agility and the essential design language of Porsche’s early works prototypes and 911s are retained as an echo of Porsche Motorsports’ competition vehicles from 1960s. This is "a unique and purposeful combination of mechanical parts and a sleek bullet-shaped body which produce the perfect track and rally weapon," according to Emory Motorsports PR minions. The 911K acknowledges its motorsports brethren with distinct cues such as the amber fiberglass dashcap, Porsche Light Ivory paint with signal-yellow accent and hand-painted Mobil Pegasus for that authentic touch  Air horns and auxiliary lights define the car’s rally stance from the front. Other body modifications include mesh intake guards, a twin-grille decklid, R-style deck lid hinges and R-style bumpers.  


AE Favorite Lyrics of the Week:

Well I know what's right
I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground
And I won't back down

I won't back down
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
I won't back down
Hey, I will stand my ground
(I won't back down)
And I won't back down

- "I Won't Back Down" by Tom Petty
