German sports car manufacturer Porsche displays its new 4-door Panamera in a new video highlighting the exterior alterations.

Unchanged is the sporty nature of the vehicle, with aggressive attributes like the wide wheels, flared arches and red Brembo brakes still present.

"Our new app brings the best of Playboy with original, thought-provoking and enticing bite-sized content that captures our design-driven and discernible style," said Scott Flanders, CEO of Playboy Enterprises. "We've rebuilt Playboy for iPhone from the ground up to attract the new generation of Gen Y fans who enjoy the indulgences of the artisanal good life and modern culture." Download it for free here.

Last time, Mercedes-Benz was kind enough to invite us along for a spin in its newly introduced 2014 CLA. This time we are back for another video featuring Benz‘s 2014 range of E-Class models. Taking place in Hamburg, Germany we were given a rundown on different variants of the E-Class, from the E200 to the E500, however, our test vehicle of choice was the E400 Cabriolet — the successor of the E350. Fitted with a 3-liter bi-turbo V-6 engine that is capable of an acceleration of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds, the E400 boasts 333hp and 354 lb-ft of torque at 1,600 RPM. Mercedes have also made additional changes to the interior and exterior, adding refined touches like an analog clock, redesigned surfaces with premium leathers, and a truly aggressive front that contains multi-lighting under one housing and a single bar grille, reminiscent of the SLS.

Every man should own at least one good pair of shorts. Comfortable and relaxed, they're the perfect fair-weather fall-back, and, as Style Director Mr. Dan May demonstrates in our new video, there are a number of ways to wear them. To illustrate this point, we have chosen J.Crew's Stanton Chino Shorts ($60 USD). Constructed from rugged cotton twill, they are available on MR PORTER in a wide range of colours, but to emphasise their versatility we've chosen just one: a sun-bleached shade of lobster pink that brings to mind an East Coast sensibility, and imparts a summery, preppy flavour to each of our five looks. Shorts are inherently informal, and will likely never be appropriate for dinner at The Ritz, but it's possible nevertheless to dress them up or down to suit a variety of laid-back summer scenarios. Enjoy.
