Favorite Cars from the Paris Motor Show… So Far

September 28th, 2012

2014 Jaguar F-Type

Everyone knew the Paris Motor Show would be a delightful blend of new technology, new concepts and revealed production cars.

Porsche surprised us yesterday with the plug-in hybrid Panamera Sport Turismo Concept, but other automakers are ready to make an impact on the international car market, too.

A 73-mpg non-hybrid concept was unveiled, along with a new sports car destined to be a classic, a sleek good-looking car for the family, the supercar of supercars and some fun improvements to an inexpensive RWD coupe.

Cars Coming Soon: Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Concept

Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo concept, front-quarter

Now THAT’S how to do a Panamera.

The original, and current, Panamera is a fantastic car. It’s fast, comfortable, thrilling and seductive all at once. But there’s one major problem: It might be the most bloated and oddly proportioned car on the road today.
