That isn't too terrible in the grand scheme of things. After all, the typical mountain lion is lucky to get 20 years as a feared predator while most guinea pigs go quietly after just eight years in the household cage.

    Video: Just how tight are supplies of new Audi models?
    1305579540

    Audi has taken to the Web to poke fun at its own recent supply issues while sneaking in a quick jab at its competitors. The company claims that Mercedes, BMW and Lexus owners have been jumping ship to Audi in record numbers, which is why Ingolstadt can't keep its dealers stocked.

Would this be considered a green machine? Well, we'd go with "yes" and here's why: some drivers simply must have seating for seven. So, which vehicles seat a ...

    Drop the term "Big Benz" in conversation and most people assume you're talking about the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

    The Porsche Cayenne wears many hats. It masquerades as both the automaker's entry-level vehicle and as its flagship turbocharged SUV. Broad-shouldered in stature, one variant can blast to 60 mph in less than five seconds and top 170 mph, while another may be propelled quietly under the emissions-free power of electricity.
