Porsche has taken the old saying “variety is the spice of life” to heart. The German automaker has a knack for developing seemingly endless variants of its handful of models, each adding some new flavor to the same basic ingredients. Case in point: the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid. The Turbo S E-Hybrid follows the 2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid. Both are plug-in hybrids, but the Turbo S swaps the base E-Hybrid’s turbocharged V6 for a twin-turbo V8. The combination of V8 and electric muscle makes the Turbo S E-Hybrid the most powerful Cayenne you can buy, or at least it will, when the SUV hits showrooms. The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid won’t launch in the United States until calendar year 2020, but Porsche secretly brought one over from Germany for us to drive alongside the base E-Hybrid. Since Porsche hadn’t even announced the Turbo S yet, we weren’t allowed to talk about it until now. With the car now out of the bag, we can tell you that the … [Read more...] about 2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid first drive review

By Chuck Barney | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: May 30, 2019 at 9:59 pm | UPDATED: May 31, 2019 at 4:05 am Who said Kevin Durant is too sensitive? The Golden State Warriors superstar has been knocked mercilessly by fans and the media for the way he often claps back at those who criticize him on social media. But — surprise! — Durant willingly participated Thursday night in a segment of NBA “Mean Tweets” on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” — and did so with a smile. Durant, who missed Game 1 of the NBA Finals with a calf injury, led off the “Mean Tweets” bit, which also included appearances by fellow NBA stars Bradley Beal, Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Ballmer, Joel Embiid, Charles Barkley, Ben Simmons, Jrue Holiday, Paul George, Chris Bosh, Kyle Lowry, Kemba Walker, Karl Anthony-Towns, Danny Green, Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez and Robin Lopez. As he has done for the past several years Kimmel is doing … [Read more...] about Warriors’ Kevin Durant has some fun with ‘Mean Tweets’
It’s nearly impossible to have a conversation while waiting on the president to make an appearance. Instead, everyone steals glances at the closed door, waiting for it to open, and converses in short, substance-free sentences that are all but forgotten as soon as they are uttered. Such was the case in February 2017 as I stood in the Roosevelt Room making small talk with House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, who, along with other Republican leaders, had arrived for their first legislative strategy session with the new president. Now a few weeks into my time in the West Wing as special assistant to the president and director of White House message strategy, I was growing more accustomed to this awkward dynamic, but this was the first time I had experienced it alongside the most powerful members of Congress. Compliments about neckties were exchanged, which led to a discussion about socks. Before long we were talking about the weather, always a sure sign … [Read more...] about ‘Mean as a Snake’: When President Trump Met the Real Mitch McConnell
