Looking to take a chunk out of Porsche's 911 sales, McLaren gives us the 570S: a toned down take on its 650S that can still hit 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and top out at 204 mph. Starting price for the brand's first sports car---rather than supercar---is $213,000.

The Civic is the kind of average vehicle gobs of people buy because it's affordable, reliable, and inoffensive. But at this year's show, Honda proved it can still excite. This coupe concept, in nuclear-ooze green, is a hint at styling for the tenth-gen Civic, and that's made us very excited. Honda

In its continuing Odyssey to resurrect Lincoln, Ford announced this week it's bringing back the Continental. The car---technically a concept---doesn't stand out (except to a peeved Bentley designer), but we welcome the idea of fresh blood with a respected name.

The 2016 XF isn't a radical departure from outgoing model, but it is much improved. Lighter, faster, more efficient, and more comfortable, it's the second car built on Jaguar's aluminum-intensive architecture.

Packed with a new racing engine, a massive rear wing, and enough aerodynamic features to keep wind tunnel testers busy for years, the STI Performance Concept shows what Subaru could do for its performance division.
