Making Waves PLUG + PLAY
The 2014 Panamera S E-Hybrid is Porsche’s first plug-in hybrid. The sporty new model boasts a more powerful electric motor and a higher-performance lithium-ion battery than the 2013 model, and accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds. $99,000; porsche.com

SAVVY SOUND
D’Agostino’s Momentum Preamplifier pleases the most discriminating audiophiles. With its copper accents, the preamp complements the company’s Momentum amplifier and comes with a radio-frequency remote. $32,000; dagostinoinc.com

PITCH PERFECT
Denon’s Music Maniac Artisan Headphones deliver a studio-quality listening experience. A special 50-mm Nano Fiber driver matches the performance of a loudspeaker while memory-foam ear pads and socket ear cup design provide a perfect fit for every user. $1,199; denon.com 

HEALTH TRACK
Basis’s award-winning personal health tracker helps users optimize their physical activity and sleep quality by monitoring heart rate patterns, motion, perspiration and skin temperature throughout the day. A lightweight wristband reports data to a dashboard on a computer or mobile device that suggests ways to improve health and performance. $199; mybasis.com

FASHION FORWARD
Designer Marissa Webb is making waves on the runways with her fall/winter collection that puts a modern twist on classic haberdashery.

TREASURE TROVE
