Aston Martin Vanquish S: last effort is a worthy one

When Steve Jobs returned to Apple AAPL, -0.11% in 1997, its computers probably got the mother of all inferiority complexes. The Aston Martin Vanquish can relate to that: It launched in 2012, before new boss Andy Palmer (ex-Nissan NSANY, +1.85% ) and new chief engineer Matt Becker (ex-Lotus) arrived. Both felt Aston’s range-topping super-GT had room for improvement. Putting Vanquish under even more pressure, the DB11 arrived last year; that V12 GT is substantially cheaper yet boasts a new platform, a similarly powerful (though twin-turbocharged) engine, a fresh design and a more up-to-date interior.

With that in mind, Palmer and Becker have evolved the Vanquish into the Vanquish S.
