2017 Porsche Panamera Release Date, Price and Specs – Roadshow

According to Porsche, the new 2017 Porsche Panamera shares only three things with the previous generation: the Panamera name, the Porsche crest on the hood and the goal of being the fastest luxury sedan in the world.

According to Porsche, the new 2017 Porsche Panamera shares only three things with the previous generation: the Panamera name, the Porsche crest on the hood and the goal of being the fastest luxury sedan in the world.

Review: LG SH7B Soundbar

Soundbars are all the rage these days and it’s easy to see why – they take up very little space, sound way better than your TV’s speakers and are dead-simple to set up.

Soundbars are all the rage these days and it’s easy to see why – they take up very little space, sound way better than your TV’s speakers and are dead-simple to set up. And while some feel that soundbars might not sound as good as a true surround sound system or even a good stereo setup, I’ve found that they do a good enough job that most people won’t mind skimping on some sound quality for an easier setup and smaller price tag.
