Imagine driving along a coastal road in the evening sun, listening to Christopher Cross, Michael McDonald or some other very smooth singer usually associated with the tag "Yacht Rock". Perhaps a Lexus coupe could very well suit that soft rock mental imagery, with "Sailing" playing from its Mark Levinson audio as you cruise down the road in a laid-back fashion. But you could in fact be sailing in a Lexus-branded boat, too.

"We plan to start sales in the U.S. in the latter half of 2019, with sales in Japan following in the spring of 2020."

The new, 65-foot yacht will be built in partnership with Marquis-Larson, and more details of it will be revealed later.

Nissan '400Z' Is Reportedly Happening With a 475-HP Nismo Version .
The next Nissan Z will apparently hit dealers as soon as 2020.Internally known as the Z35, the next Z will reportedly share a platform and engine with the next Infiniti Q60. That car packs a twin-turbo, 3.0-liter V-6 good for 400 horsepower in its red-hot Red Sport trim. While 400 horses would be more than sufficient for most casual drivers, Autocar says Nissan has something even quicker in store for its most hardcore Z customers: A 475-horsepower, all-wheel-drive Nismo 400Z. To put that into perspective, Nissan's own supercar-slaying GT-R boasted just 480 horses when it first debuted back in 2008.
