• While every car maker was building crossovers, a handful of premium brands focused on the upper-tier market of executive saloons. You know the type: Mercedes-Benz's S-Class, BMW's 7-Series, and Lexus' LS dominate the market. But a couple other players threw their ball in the court. Porsche came out with the Panamera, Maserati has the beautiful Quattroporte, and now Aston Martin joins the party with the Rapide. As far as moving people is concerned, it's not very good. It's smaller than every aforementioned car. But, just look at it. It's beautiful. It's essentially a four-door DB9. Drool.
