At SpeedWash, we see all kinds of vehicles, makes, and models. We're really passionate about cars and of course we love to see them clean. There's about three months left in 2016, but we're already pumped and looking forward to seeing what 2017 brings. So, we've created this list of the Top Ten 2017 Vehicles that we are looking forward to seeing!
1. 2017 TAW Trans Am Bandit Edition
Back in 2010, legendary automotive manufacturer Pontiac shut down it's plant and folded into it's parent company General Motors. In 2011, brothers Tod and Scott Warmack with partner Jim Dowling collaborated with graphic designer Kevin Morgan started the Trans AM Depot, LLC and began work on their vision of a modern day Trans Am. One of Pontiac's previous flagship cars. The upcoming Trans Am Bandit Edition is extra special. Only 77 will be made! The 77 is a nod to the '77 Trans Am which the car will be designed to resemble for modern tastes. It's also a nod to the classic movie Smokey and the Bandit which also came out in 1977 and the car itself is co-signed by Burt Reynolds himself.
2. 2017 Tesla Model 3
The Tesla Model 3 is one of the most highly anticipated vehicles to officially drop in 2017. With pre-orders worldwide worth upwards of $10 billion dollars, it's safe to say we're going to see a bunch of these on the road very soon. At the modest price of $35,000, this car packs a punch that goes way above and beyond it's price tag. On a full charge you can travel at least 215 miles and the many other wonderful standard features that have become common place in Tesla vehicles. Which include a “camping mode” where you can comfortably sleep in the vehicle, a huge dashboard display, and of course it's auto-pilot mode used for long drives.

We love our Porsches here at SpeedWash and we're really looking forward to the 2017 edition of the Panamara. A combination of German engineering excellence, explosive performance, cutting-edge technology, and of course style. One of the cool new features in this edition of the Panamera is InnoDrive the adaptive cruise control system. Some of the biggest changes are found under the hood. There's three new engines and a new transmission.

The Genesis G90 is Hyundai's first foray into the luxury car business and boy does it not disappoint.
