The world can breathe easy: Brad Pitt is safe. The concern arose over the weekend when Pitt crashed his motorcycle--a rough lay-down might be more accurate--but apparently got away unscathed. Get all the low-down, plus tidbits on Anna Faris and Katy Perry, today over at CelebsAndCars.

Motor Authority turns its eye toward the Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T R-Spec, finally revealed in all its glory just ahead of SEMA. The car is expected to be the enthusiast's choice from the sporty Genesis Coupe lineup. Also on deck in the performance/luxury world is an early look at Porsche's 2012 lineup and word that the hot-hatch Fiat 500 Abarth will likely be the first of the cars to make it to the U.S. under the new Chyrsler-Fiat arrangement.

TheCarConnection has video of a horrible house crashing, involving an unannounced 4am visit of a Chevy Aveo to the bedroom of a pair of lucky-to-be-alive college students in Nevada. On the more serious side of things, there's also a look at Geely's ever-evolving bid to buy Volvo from Ford, an examination of the relationship between seats and neck injuries in car crashes and an examination of gaffe-prone Vice President Biden's revelation of the Fisker lineup during a press interview.

Over at GreenCarReports, John Voelcker brings us news of a 2011 Toyota Prius Coupe, brought off the drawing board to do battle against Honda's upcoming CR-Z hybrid coupe/hatchback. The word on the street is that unlike the CR-Z, which will have sporty pretensions, the Prius Coupe likely just be a smaller, lighter version of the sedan. Also on the greener side of the fence, there's a first drive review of the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox four-cylinder, news of Dodge's first Ram Hybrid and another look at Biden's bungle.
