What do you think of when you hear the phrase “luxury automobile”? Many people imagine a sleek and sexy sedan with a leather interior and all the latest gadgets. Car shoppers that have been watching the market more recently may also think of luxury SUVs—sporty yet refined vehicles that offer an ideal combination of adventure and style. However, few people think of luxury pickup trucks—a segment now on the rise.
Believe it or not, luxury trucks are growing rapidly as a segment. According to The News Wheel, luxury pickups are becoming increasingly popular, especially with the rise of vehicles like the GMC Sierra Denali, the Ram Limited Tungsten Edition, and the F-Series Super Duty Limited. While some of these trucks carry a price tag, they also come with incredible performance and sophistication.
“Everyone wants these loaded-out trucks,” says Sandor Piszar, the Truck Marketing Manager at Chevrolet. “They offer just about everything you can get in a luxury car — and they can haul and tow.”
In fact, Mercedes-Benz recently announced that it would introduce the X-Class truck, a powerful pickup that will likely make its way to the USA sometime in the near future.
Offering power, high-tech features, and refined interior designs, luxury trucks are certainly something we at Coast to Coast imports look forward to seeing more of in the future. For luxury vehicles of any segment, contact us to see what we have on our lot.
If you’ve ever wanted to own a Porsche, you’re in good company. Some of the world’s most lovable stars have gotten behind the wheel of the brand, and not always in a brand-new model. Here are five celebrities who own Porsche cars.
With an income in the multi-millions, is it really a surprise that talk show host Ellen DeGeneres owns a Porsche? She currently rolls out in a Porsche Targa 4S and Porsche 993. Plus, her wife is named Portia, so there’s that too.
Jerry Seinfeld is a well-known comedian who has a love for cars. At one point, he owned 47 Porsche vehicles. He sold 17 Porsche models, including a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder and 1959 Porsche 718 RSK, in 2016. Seinfeld currently owns the first Porsche 911 ever produced, a Porsche 959, and a 1961 Porsche 911 T/R.
Rap star Yo Gotti prides himself on being different from other artists. That pride just so happens to extend to his cars as well. When other artists were getting their cars painted black, he painted his white. The rapper has been seen cruising in a rare 1957 Porsche Speedsteer as well as a Porsche 911 and Porsche Panamera.
American Pickers star Mike Wolfe has seen his fair share of antique cars in his travels, but only one found a place in his heart. He still drives the classic Porsche 356 Coupe when he isn’t filming. Hopefully, one day he’ll stop by to see us here at Coast to Coast Imports!
Comedian Adam Carolla has quite a collection of cars, including one racing enthusiasts might know fairly well. Carolla bought Paul Newman’s Le Mans Porsche 935 racecar at an auction to the tune of $4.4 million.

When you choose to drive a luxury vehicle from Coast to Coast Imports, it’s because you want the highest quality transportation out there.
With that in mind, you might also be wondering when to trade in your luxury vehicle for the best return and the latest releases.
Here are three signs that it’s time to trade your luxury vehicle for your next luxury car.
Your Needs Have Changed
The only person who really knows your needs is you, so take an honest look at your vehicle and any recent changes in your lifestyle.
Do you have too much space in it? Too little? Not enough technology to keep you entertained? It’s natural for needs to change as life is filled with changes, so when it’s time for something different, it’s time to trade in your vehicle.
Your Mileage Is Increasing
Obviously, your car’s mileage will always be increasing, but there are certain points along the way that are better for trade-in than others. Lots of buyers feel hesitant to choose a used car with over 100,000 miles (even though today’s vehicle last much longer than that). For best trade-in results, you should say “goodbye” to your vehicle before then, or even before the mileage point when the warranty runs out.
Your Car Works Fine
If might seem counterintuitive to get rid of your vehicle when it’s still working. However, a car that’s in good condition will get a much better trade-in value, so sell before you have to explain its high repair costs.
If you want to trade in your current vehicle, contact us at Coast to Coast Imports and we can help make it happen.
