is this the Porsche Pajun?

expected price of around $55k?  Where do i sign?

In all likelihood, considering the source (Auto Express)—these are likely modified photos using a Panamera as a base, but after the debacle of the A110-50, who knows anymore!

I love the Panamera and judging by the way this looks, I love this even more….WOW.  Porsche is going to go big time if they launch this in the Audi S4 price range….although I would expect, as with all Porsches, the price will climb higher quickly with a few options.

MK3 Audi TT…could this be the 1st official hint?

I believe so!  From everything I minimally know about the MK3 development process, this is by far the closest thing i’ve seen consistent with the descriptions i’ve heard.  Same kinda roofline, but very progressive design.  I really think this photo, which accompanied a technology press release….is the first official hint at the MK3 TT’s design!

hello: Audi RS5.

Looks fantastic, as expected.  Engine specs haven’t been released yet, although i’m hoping forced induction.  450hp at least,  could it be a 3.0 Twin Turbo or 4.2L V8?  Possible.   Either way….it looks epic.

Latest Audi A1 spy shots.

the 2011 Audi A1 is set for its online debut in about 1 week, however over the past few months—-there has been tons of leakage, teasers, spy pics, etc…posted around the web.

These new spy pics posted by Motor Authority seem to be the best ones yet, showing the dimensions and profile of the car the best.  It looks great……..AUDI! BRING IT TO THE US!!!!! I would love to have this little thing as a commuter around NYC.

IEDEI catches the ‘new’ 370z Roadster in the wild…

Actually….I took this photo about 3 or 4 months ago…(maybe longer?) as this 370Z Roadster was parked near my flat here in Brooklyn.  I forgot to post this back then, and now i’ve come to realise that this car still hasn’t been released! So i’m posting it now.  It wasn’t exactly ‘nice’ to look at, but wasn’t terrible either.

2012 Porsche 911. it looks different!?

Well it doesn’t look that different, but there are some significant styling differences noticeable from these spy pics posted on Motor Authority.


The front nose is definitely higher, and the headlights are more upright, reminiscent of older 911s (ding ding….points for Porsche already!).  Supposedly this is due to stricter EU pedestrian safety laws, but I like to think it’s due to taking the 911 back to its stylish roots!

I’m not sure what they are trying to do with the rear, and I get the feeling that the spoiler on this mule has been heavily camouflaged and subsequently distorted from the look it will have in production.  I think that ‘whale tale’ is to throw off the pundits, or is it? Time will tell.
