We previewed the 2010 Mazda3 sedan here, but we think the second-gen’s lines (and yes, that ridiculous grin) suit the hatchback better; it’ll premiere on 12/3 at the Bologna Auto Show.
If Jaguar’s upcoming XF Coupe looks anything like these Auto Express renders, we’ll be first in line to snap up one of these 3-Series fighters; it’ll sport a 5.0L V8 that pumps out 500 bhp.
The Unimog is truly for globe trekkers, with a chassis that can take just about any kind of diesel and permanent all wheel drive; inside, you’ll get corian countertops and teak floors.
Going retro has been hit-or-miss for recent muscle cars, but this concept C3R Corvette Stingray is undeniably sexy: it sports hideaway head lights and aggressive front fender peaks.
Recently making its North American debut at SEMA, the 2009 Audi Q5′s feature list is promising: a 2.0L TFSI with a 7-speed shifter, hatchback-style rear access, and sliding rear seats.
Seen at SEMA to promote next year’s clean emission Grand Prix, Brammo’s Enertia is an electric motorcycle with a range of 45 miles, making this ideal for workplace commutes.
Porsche’s much anticipated four-door Panamera sedan has been laid bare for the world to see; it’s a bit odd-looking, but with a 500hp V8 and hybrid on the way, we can deal with odd.
With a double front and 4-link rear suspension, VW’s Baja Race Touareg is an off-road version of its 3.0L V6 TDI, using the same clean diesel tech albeit with a souped-up 5.5L V12.
Lamborghini’s Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder shares the same mechanicals as the coupe, albeit with a soft-top that opens in 20 seconds–vital when you’ve got a 560 ponies under the hood.
Formally called the Ecological Drive Assist System, the 2010 Honda Insight’s dash is basically a big one-up on the Prius; it glows green and grows leaves when you’re driving efficiently.
Fresh from the LA Auto Show, the 2009 Porsche Cayman and Boxster get minor facelifts, but the real news is under the hood: direct injection adds 10-25 ponies and improves fuel economy.
If you can ignore the fugtastic rear on Honda’s FC Sport concept, the Vader-esque frontend, McLaren-style three seat layout and fuel cell powertrain are pretty intriguing.
It’s by no means an official race, but check out this video of a Dodge EV concept beating a Challenger; the EV is actually an ell-electric, Dodge-branded Lotus Europa.
Ford’s 2010 Mustang is an evolutionary update, with tighter bodywork, a more upscale interior and improved aerodynamics; the GT will also get a power bump to 315hp and 325 lb-ft of torque.
Fiat and Yamaha may make strange bedfellows, but this FZ1 naked bike is named after Karl Abarth, who before selling his racecar company to Fiat in 1971 also raced motorbikes.
Bentley’s premium luxo-boat gets an upgrade with the 2010 Azure T; it gets “Le Mans” air vents, tinted front grills, diamond quilted seats and goes 0-60 in 5.5s with its 6.7L twin-turbo V8.
Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson is looking a bit like Tim Allen; above, he hooks a 6.2L V8 Corvette engine up to a blender and makes a “man smoothie” with bone-in beef and tabasco.
The Streetfighter’s burlier (and sexier) sibling, the Ducati 1198/1198 S has a 1198.4 cc engine that pumps out 170bhp and 97lb/ft of torque; it’ll also get superbike-level traction control.
It doesn’t get much better than this for car enthusiasts: watch this drag race between a Chevy ZR1, Ferrari 599, Nissan GT-R and a Porsche GT2. Hint: the Axis powers lose.
The GT4 Supersport is an amped-up version of Lotus Sport’s 2-Eleven club racer, with a full roll cage, sequential gearbox and 270 hp/181 lb-ft of torque; only ten will be built initially in 2009.
Tesla competitor Fisker is getting set to produce the Karma, a plug-in hybrid sedan which will go 0-60 in 5.8s and an all-electric range of 50 miles; it should be available in late 2009.
