video of the day. Dezir.

So in the past few weeks i have been TRYING to figure out what Renault has planned for the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Alpine marque—-i’ve been given some clues, but they are very minimal!

It’s interesting that Renault had shown a concept in 2010/2011 known as the Dezir, and I do find myself wondering if somehow the ‘new’ Alpine Concept which may be introduced at the upcoming Geneva Auto Show will look anything like this!

quattro Sport Concept @ Concorso D’eleganza Villa D’este

My favourite current concept car——i am full hope that this badboy gets produced.  If it does, you bet every dollar I will be selling parts of my spleen to get myself one—-in BLACK thank you very much!

Mercedes-Benz A-Class Concept.

Mercedes-Benz is showing photos of their new A-Class Concept. I’m all in favour for small, cool, luxury hatchbacks—-but this Mercedes doesn’t look like a Mercedes.  It really looks more BMW from the side (all the slashes and body moldings…very Bangle-ish) and quite Audi from the rear (TOO Audi-ish from the rear)….and maybe Volvo-ish from the front?  A pretty interesting design that I quite like in many ways—-but a little sloppy and very uncharacteristic for a Mercedes, in my opinion.

and compare the rear end to the Audi A1 Concept from a couple years ago!

hello, Porsche 918 Spyder.

This looks very R8-ish, with more curves and Porsche-ness.  I’m not sure what to really think of it.  I’m not a fan of hybrids, although I understand they will be enhancing market share in the imminent future.  If they made this car with a petrol engine, i’d be far more likely to plop it down as my wallpaper.  Still pretty cool though, and somewhat of a diversion for Porsche designing.

Make sure you watch the 2 minute promo video at the bottom of the post:

Saab 9-3X now on order sheet at US Saab dealers…

Amidst the soap opera of what has become SAAB, The SAAB-Spyker deal seems to be building confidence in its conclusion.  The latest positive sign seems to be that after over a year of US market dormancy, the SAAB 9-3X has been added to US dealer order lists!  It will be months til customers get their orders filled, and maybe this is a way for the company to gauge interest in products after all the hooplah….but it seems that the 9-3X would nicely fill the gap that the Audi Allroad’s absence in the US market has created; an upscale, european wagon with AWD.

To all those people who have been rooting for SAAB to be rescued, this is your time to walk the walk and place your order for a pretty cool AWD wagon.  Good decision SAAB, now back up all this talk with some kick ass new products, and success will be yours!!

new Corrado? NO. new Jetta Coupe? YES.

While not as exciting as the idea of a ‘new’ Corrado, the Jetta Coupe images coming out are showing it to be a pretty damn attractive little coupe.  Definitely looks a bit like a baby Audi A5, which is definitely not a bad thing!

All in all, i think this is gonna be mad popular with Vdubbers everywhere. Nice one, VW.
