Rumors that GM has moved up the production date of the next Chevy Malibu are given some weight by this prototype sighting.
By now, we've seen hundreds of the unfinished Chevy Volt prototypes roaming around the United States with non-production lights, missing trim and the flat black and gray paint jobs.
For the first time today, we have photos of a Chevy Volt out testing that is showroom ready! It's been a long wait for this revolutionary vehicle from GM, but these latest photos show the Volt is now in the last stages of validation. Though we hope those "Volt" window stickers are optional!
Watch for production to start in November 2010 at GM's Hamtramck Assembly Plant in Detroit.
In 2008, Cadillac gave us the CTS-V sedan. Then, earlier this year, GM debuted the CTS-V Coupe at the Detroit Auto Show. Now we've spied the latest piece in Cadillac's V puzzle with exclusive spy photos of the 2011 CTS-V Wagon with NO CAMOUFLAGE!!
Luck was on our side as we stumbled onto this Cadillac photo shoot and saw a showroom-ready CTS-V Wagon just waiting for our camera.
As with the other V-series cars, the CTS-V Wagon will be wearing wire mesh grilles, a power dome hood, wider tires, high performance wheels, larger brake calipers and sportier body work.
Under that power dome hood sits the now familiar 6.2L, supercharged V8 motor known as the LSA. Good for 556 hp and 551 lb.-ft. in the CTS-V sedan, we expect the ratings of the Wagon to be the same.
Watch for the V-series to wagon to be in showrooms by late summer or fall.
A few weeks ago we caught MINI testing an updated version of the Clubman S, now we've just snapped photos of a regular Cooper S being tested in Europe!
Ford's sleek Australian market Falcon FPV is spied with an intercooler, meaning either decoy or maybe something like 500 hp on tap.
If you're looking for a sports-commuter that can also get you up the
mountain for some skiing and boarding, here's a consideration" the Audi A7.
Following a mid-cycle facelift in 2007, the next-gen BMW 1-Series is
due to arrive in 2011, says Brenda Priddy, whose spy photo network
captured this five-door mule during cold weather testing.
Chrysler is already taking some stick in Jeep quarters for making the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee look like nearly every other "soft-roader"
SUV on the market.
Lamborghini's new Jota, named in homage to a one-off Miura from the early '70's, is likely to feature a direct-injection V12 and Haldex all-wheel-drive system.
The next-generation Porsche 911, internally called the 998, has begun
winter testing and Brenda Priddy got these candids of the venerable
rear-drive/rear-engine machine topping up at the local Shell.
