  • The Basecamp 20 starts at $45,900 and comes with a larger bed, more storage compartments, a dedicated furnace, and a tankless water heater, among other features.
  • Upgrading to the $48,900 Basecamp 20X improves the trailer’s off-road capability with extra ground clearance and aggressive off-road Goodyear tires.

    With all the talk of off-road SUVs this week, Airstream’s announcement of the expansion of its lineup of Basecamp camping trailers could make anybody start planning future overlanding adventures. In addition to the 16-foot existing model, these two new 20-foot floor plans provide more space for people and storage.

    The Basecamp 20 offers a larger rear-mounted bed to make it easier to take friends or family along on adventures. At the front of the 20-foot models, a four-seat dinette allows for easier in-trailer dining. There’s

    2021 Porsche 911 Turbo Is on Par with the Previous-Gen Turbo S

    • Porsche is introducing the 992-generation 911 Turbo, joining the more powerful Turbo S in the 911 family.
    • The Turbo makes 572 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque compared to the Turbo S’s 640 hp and 580 lb-ft.
    • Pricing starts at $172,150 for the Turbo coupe and $184,950 for the cabriolet. They’ll arrive in the U.S. early next year.

      Sure, the new Turbo S spins up 640 horsepower and does zero to 60 mph in a Porsche-claimed 2.6 seconds, but you’ll have to dig deep into your pockets for its $204,850 starting price. Below that are the 911 Carrera S, 4S, and Targa 4S, which all make nearly 200 less horsepower, but they don’t reach higher than $150,000 (without options, that is). The new 992-generation 911 Turbo will now bridge that gap, though, as it produces 572 horsepower and starts at $172,150.

      The standard Turbo model is very similar to the

      2021 Audi A7 Gets a More Powerful 362-HP Plug-In-Hybrid Version

      • The 2021 Audi A7 55 TFSI e is the plug-in-hybrid version of the A7, being offered for the first time.
      • The plug-in A7 is equipped with a 14.1-kWh battery paired with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder for a combined 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque.
      • The plug-in A7 will go on sale this fall, priced starting at $75,895.

        Audi revealed early last year that it was going to add a plug-in-hybrid option to several of its vehicles in the U.S.—including the Q5 and A8—but it had kept us waiting on the A7. The German automaker has now divulged that the plug-in-hybrid A7 will be a 2021 model in the U.S., and it’ll qualify for federal tax subsidies.

        The A7 55 TFSI e churns out 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque from its electric motor and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, which is 27 horsepower more and the same amount of torque compared

        • BMW has released a video detailing the next-generation M3 sports sedan.
        • The G80-generation M3 will come with either rear- or all-wheel drive and is expected to offer over 500 horsepower.
        • Expect the 2021 BMW M3 to make its debut later this year.

          We’ve been waiting for the new 2021 BMW M3 ever since the latest 3-series made its debut, and a new video from BMW M confirms that it’s almost here. This marketing video shows a prototype of the new G80-generation M3 undergoing testing on the road and at the Nürburgring, and it confirms a few interesting details about the car, including that it will offer either rear- or all-wheel-drive configurations.

          While it’s still in camouflage, the 2021 M3 clearly has a wider body than the standard 3-series, with flared fenders, extra air intakes at the front, and an aggressive-looking rear valence with four exhaust tips. Larger wheels and
