- ‘The Leisure Seeker’ Toronto Review: Helen Mirren, Donald Sutherland Highlight Touching Road Movie

- Friday Sep 8, 2017
An American road movie made by an Italian director with Canadian and British stars, “The Leisure Seeker” is a gentle but pointed lament for things that are lost and things that are fading, be they personal memories or a national sense of community.The film, which premiered on Friday at the Toronto International Film Festival, takes director Paolo Virzi down the east coast of the U.S., as stars Donald Sutherland and Helen Mirren drive a battered 1975 Winnebago (which she’s dubbed “the Leisure Seeker”) from their home in Massachusetts to Ernest Hemingway’s house in the Florida Keys.
- Porsche's most affordable 4-door sports car: Macan GTS
By Jeff Yip, Autos Correspondent - Friday Jun 2, 2017
The lineup starts with the Macan ($47,800), which has a 252 horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine matched with Porsche's PDK dual-clutch transmission and Porsche Traction Management.The Macan GTS hits the sweet spot in performance, balance and value thanks to hardware changes and a unique engine calibration that delivers 360 horses at 6,000 rpm and 369 lb.-ft. of torque is on tap between 1,650 and 4,000 rpm.The rest of the GTS's all-wheel-drive powertrain - the seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission and Porsche's traction management system - are in the pricier Macan Turbo.The premium plus package includes panoramic roof, Bose surround sound, auto-dimming mirrors and heated front and rear seats, but even though it's $3,390 it doesn't include cooled - or even ventilated - seats.Adding surround view to the Macan's park assist with front and rear camera adds another $1,190 but the electronics and image quality were very good and will likely prevent minor damage and costly repainting many times down the road.The previously mentioned Sport Chrono package includes analog and digital stop watches, a sport plus button that tailors throttle characteristics and launch control, the reason many buyers automatically check the Sport Chrono option box,Aim the GTS down a straight stretch of road, keep the left foot firmly planted on the brakes and floor the gas pedal.The engine will hit and stay at around 4,000 rpm (and sound great through the performance style exhaust), then you simply take your foot off the brake pedal when safe and the Macan leaps like a tiger.The Macan GTS has a long list of standard content including sport exhaust system, auto-leveling Bi-Xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights and taillights, eight-way sport front seats with memory, 10-speaker, 150-watt surround sound audio with HD radio and three-month trial SiriusXM satellite radio subscription, power tailgate, power retractable and heated outside mirrors and rain-sensing windshield wipers.
