The IROC Concept is a nod to the Scirocco, the sporty little VW that was sold in the Seventies, Eighties and even early Nineties and that will be resurrected as this vehicle (in production trim, of course). It's public debut will be at the 2006 Paris Motor Show in September and hit showrooms by late 2008. [autoblog]
Automobile Magazine has recently updated the 2008 & Beyond Sneak Preview - Future Cars section of it's site. The 08 Malibu, 09 Camaro and Z07 Corvette look like they may actually be an "American Revolution" and really change people's perceptions about Chevrolet. Aston Martin's Rapide has to be the sexiest four-door I have ever seen.

According to Automotive News a fastback coupe and Euro-styled crossover variants of the Cadillac CTS were shown to dealers. AWD is also a possibility as is a "third" yet to be described variant. Cadillac believes that the CTS has been a "credibility booster" and wants to leverage its standing into a full lineup of vehicles not unlike BMW and the 3 series. It all makes sense to me. The CTS has garnered a lot of attention from folks who would have otherwise never considered a Cadillac. [all cars all the time]
