2012 BMW 3 Series Sedan

This isn't one of those measly little face lift updates. Instead, the 2012 BMW 3 Series Sedan ($TBA) represents a ground-up rebuild of Bimmer's most popular line, resulting in a car that's wider and longer yet more powerful and fuel efficient. Power will come from a new turbocharged 4-cylinder — first seen in the Z4 — or the traditional turbo 6-cylinder, which are paired to a six-speed manual or new eight-speed automatic, and the new interior also boasts slightly more room, as well as new available features like a full-color heads-up display, a park-assist system, and multiple accident avoidance features. Of course, it does look different as well, with a higher, wider, and more athletic front facia featuring LED accent lights, a kidney grille that blends into the headlamps, and two large air intakes. Expect it in dealerships next February. [Scouted by Rob]

  • Porsche Panamera Stingray GTR

    Not satisfied with Porsche's standard Panamera offerings? Take things one step further and order up a Porsche Panamera Stingray GTR ($TBA). Aggressively modified by Russian outfit TopCar, this limited edition — only 25 are being made — sports sedan features a nearly all-new carbon fiber and Kevlar body, including new front and rear bumpers, air vents, front and rear fender extenders, front and rear doors — the latter of which open with the press of a button — bonnet, wings, rear diffuser, spoiler, and side skirts, along with performance enhancements like a sport air filter, intake manifold, and valved exhaust system that boost horsepower north of the 600 mark.

  • 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8

    Did you lose yourself in the latest "Imported from Detroit" Chrysler 300 ads only to find the engine selection more abhorrent than Eminem's awful Brisk commercial? The 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8 ($TBA) should remedy the situation. Anchored by a 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 pumping out 465 horses, the new SRT8 also boasts a 25 percent fuel economy boost, paddle shifters to go with the console-mounted Auto Stick, an Adaptive Damping Suspension system to provide a sticky yet comfortable ride, seven-spoke, forged aluminum 20-inch wheels, Brembo brakes, a heated steering wheel, an 8.4-inch touchscreen display, and an available 900-watt, 19-speaker system from Harman Kardon that should do plenty of justice to whatever you're playing, whether it be rap or rock.
