Turning Heads
The Polaris Slingshot made news in 2018 when the three-wheeled roadster was reclassified as an “autocycle,” making it legal for any person with a valid driver’s license to drive one in Florida. Now, the brand is making headlines with its newest model, the Grand Touring LE, which features a new AutoDrive automatic transmission, allowing drivers to operate without clutching or shifting. Fewer than 300 of these Fairway Green vehicles—complete with bronze accents and special-edition bronze wheels—are being made, so be sure to secure yours today. $33,999; slingshot.polaris.com
