First we told you about the new top-of-the-line Ferrari expected to be unveiled in March; now a Ferrari enthusiast has snapped these photos of a heavily disguised model out testing near Maranello. Don't worry — it's not really a hatchback.
Not content to offer just watered-down dispatches from the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, we've harnessed the power of
cheap Eastern European labor the interwebs to bring you video of every single reveal and press conference today.
The Ferrari HY-KERS concept, the first hybrid from the prancing stallion, is essentially a Ferrari 599 with a strap-on 107HP electric motor. So, a Geo Metro's worth of electric power and a screaming V12. Hey enviro-nerds, the paint's green, right?
"And so I said to the press, I said, 'I like the BMW 5-Series, and I think that, in this Swiss land, we should move away from all this 'neutrality' nonsense. I have an opinion! Here it is!"
Despite the trompe l'oeil, the 2011 Porsche Cayenne is actually 1.88 inches longer than the outgoing model, but it's also 396lbs lighter. The real controversy, other than it being a Porsche-UV, is the 380HP hybrid — the first since 1899.
The Lotus Evora 414E is a preview of the first hybridized vehicle to come from Colin Chapman's legendary brand. The hasty might say he's spinning in his weight-reduced grave, but upon closer inspection this EREV doesn't completely suck.
Upon first glance, Bertone did an excellent job styling the Alfa Romeo Pandion Concept — until you get to the back. The car's front 3/4 angle is uniquely fetching but the back end looks like an emo kid's bad haircut.
Aussie-owned Malaysian-based company Bufori will unveil the Bufori MkVI retro-saloon at the Geneva Motor Show. It'll look sorta like the above illustration except not drawn on paper and use a 6.1-liter V8. So it'll probably be Chrysler LX-based. [PaulTan]
The Peugeot 505 last saw production back in 1992, but judging by the 5 By Peugeot Concept planned for a Geneva debut, Pug's 5-line's headed for a boring, generic rebirth as the Peugeot 50-something. Interesting? Peut-être. French? Non!
Geneva Motor Show is coming up in March and there will be plenty of new cars from European makers, many of which will be compact and rather blah. Here's four we're probably not going to be going ga-ga over.
