This isn't your normal mid-model refresh. The 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo ($148,000 and up) is an all-new model, and as such, it's packing some new goodies. Features like a new all-wheel-drive system, active rear axle steering, adaptive aerodynamics, an entirely new, longer chassis, 20-inch wheels, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control active anti-roll system, and full-LED headlights. It hasn't lost its edge, either, boasting a turbocharged 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that pumps out 520hp in the standard model and 560hp in the S model, paired with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission that gets you from 0-60 in as little as 2.9 seconds and to a top speed of nearly 200 mph. They'll be rolling off the boats from Germany just in time for the holidays — so here's to hoping you have a very, very generous gift-giver on your list. Enjoy.

We can't tell you whether they're the best sounding headphones out there — although our guess is they sound pretty damn good — but we can tell you that these Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6 Headphones (€400; roughly $525) will be some of the best looking cans you've ever seen. Made from anodized aluminum, they feel both lightweight and rugged, and are accented by solid cowhide leather on the earcups and headband. Thanks to the over-ear design, they'll block out unwanted noise, leaving you with clean, robust sound. Expect to see them in stores next month.

Clean up your entertainment center by retiring your current collection of classic gaming machines for the Retron 5 Console ($100). This crazy box will offer support for the NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, Famicon, and Game Boy Advanced — and thus likely the original Game Boy and Game Boy Color as well. It will offer two controller ports for each system, although we're not 100% sure you'll need them given that it ships with a universal Bluetooth controller, and also outputs upscaled video and improved audio at 720p over HDMI. With any luck, it'll be hitting virtual shelves in July.

If the Campagna T-Rex 14R wasn't your cup of tea, the Canadian maker of high-performance trikes has just introduced a smooth new arrival that might change your tune – the T-Rex 16S. Unlike its sibling which is powered by a 1.4-liter four-cylinder screamer sourced from a Kawasaki Ninja, the new Campagna boasts a slightly larger 1.6-liter six-cylinder sourced from BMW. Power is down just a bit, but torque improves (rated output is 160 horsepower and 129 pound-feet), meaning the 1,100-pound-or-so trike with its sequential six-speed transmission should easily crack the 60 mph benchmark in less than five seconds and provide plenty of flexibility around town.

Another classy number from the German motoring giants. The Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG boasts a 2 liter turbo charged engine capable of generating 360 hp that will do nought to 60 in 4.5 seconds, tailing off at 155 mph. A sporty five door hatchback, it incorporates the A-Class' suspension and steering systems and funky black wheels with contrasting red brake calipers. Kudos Mercedes. Again.

Been kicking yourself ever since you missed out on the chance to own a brand new Enzo? Here's your chance to make up for it. The awkwardly-named Ferrari LaFerrari ($TBA) is the company's new limited-series flagship, offering F1-level technology in a stunning road-legal package. Apart from the unique, instant-classic looks, it features a new HY-KERS drivetrain system that pairs a 789hp, 6.3L V12 to a 160hp electric motor and a 7-speed DCT gearbox for a total of 949hp, a 0-62 time of under three seconds, a 0-124 time of under seven seconds, and a top speed of 205 mph.

America’s off-road specialist Jeep has unveiled the first photos of the 2014 Cherokee – resurrecting one of its most famous model names with plenty of new bells and whistles to meet modern demand. Sporting a more streamlined and futuristic look than its boxier predecessor, the Cherokee is built on the same platform as the Dodge Dart compact. Automotive News has previously reported that the Cherokee would be powered by a 3.2-liter V6 engine based on Chrysler’s 3.6-liter Pentastar engine, as well as an all-new nine-speed front-wheel-drive automatic transmission designed by ZF Friedrichshafen. The automaker released few other details but consumers can expect the Cherokee arriving in dealerships in the third quarter.

After a thorough drubbing at the hands of Apple and Samsung last year, HTC's back with its latest take on a flagship smartphone. The HTC One ($TBA) is the result, blending features of both the iPhone and the Galaxy series into a single, interesting handset. It features an aluminum unibody design with chamfered edges — sound familiar? — a 4.7" 1080p screen, a 4-megapixel rear-facing camera, dubbed Zoe, that promises larger individual pixels and therefore better low-light performance, dual front-facing speakers, LTE networking, a totally re-imagined Sense skin atop Android Jelly Bean, a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, NFC, 2GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, and 32 or 64GB of onboard storage. Coming soon to a carrier near you.

While many would like to have a Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG Black Edition from the W209 series parked under their garage, the limited numbers it was produced and, of course, its hefty price tag, mean that very few drivers will ever get that opportunity. If you don't mind losing out on the 6.2L AMG V8 that produces 507bhp and 465 lb.ft of torque and the specially tuned chassis, Prior Design has a solution for those who believe that it's all about the looks.
