Here's 2 videos of the new Subaru/Toyota/Scion sports car. Subaru gets top billing on this post because the engine in this featherweight little demon is all horizontally-opposed Subaru magic (Porsche is the other manufacturer that regularly puts this type of "boxer" engine in their cars.) We're a little surprised that the Toyota & Subaru versions look identical. The only difference we spot is the little vent on the Subaru's fenders versus a nasty little emblem in the same spot on the Toyota. Toyota plans to market it in the USA as a 2013 Scion FR-S. There are rumors of design tweeks for the Scion version. Initial reviews are that it is a lot of fun to drive.

Da Fang is a true automotive designer. His vehicle concept is audacious and genius. The surface, structure and even the "wheels" (if you can still call them that) are active and react to the road, driving conditions and speed to optimize performance, comfort and safety. Panels move to create downforce, help in braking or to allow suspension travel while maintaining a very streamlined profile on smooth roads at high speeds. I hope I will drive something with this type technology in my lifetime. Cudos to Fang on his vision.

|Lamborghini Estoque Wagon concept by DieselStation|
Someone who goes by the tag "Diesel Station" (see http://www.dieselstation.com/) has photoshopped the Lamborghini Estoque concept to create a wagon. We like! This would be the real successor to the 1968-1978 Lamborghini Espada that I have lusted after for 40 years. Lamborghini, build it!
