We told you about it a year ago--and today, Nissan confirms you'll see a Murano convertible at the L.A. Auto Show. Let the head-scratching begin. [CarAndDriver]

A Chevy Cruze hatchback at the Paris auto show? Count us in. Especially if there will be baguettes. [Autoblog]

The Honda Fit Hybrid's also due at the Paris show, but sadly, American buyers will not be gifted with a heavier, more expensive Fit. [Autopia]

The VW Amarok--PickupTrucks.com's favorite whipping boy--will not come to the U.S., either. [Inside Line]

The Chevrolet Suburban celebrates 75 years of existence this year. Anyone have a guesstimate on the gross tonnage pulled over the years? [KickingTires]

The 2011 Dodge Challenger is wandering around Detroit, essentially naked. A 480-hp HEMI underhood still doesn't give it enough speed to evade local reporters. Either that, or a convenient anonymous tip was planted. [Detroit News]

New GM marketing VP Joel Ewanick says the Chevy Silverado's going to play up the big-truck family feud. We're not sure if he's playing Richard Dawson, but we think the Honda Ridgeline is eagerly awaiting its welcome kiss. [Automotive News]

Spyker's already in deep financial trouble with its Saab acquisition. And now back to the news. [TTAC]

Americans love hope and change--and they're actually following the progress of electric cars, even if they don't expect to buy one. [Gas 2.0]

Lastly, a pointed lesson on how cadaver research has made cars safer. Plus, some ugly photos. Read up, but not over lunch. [Jalopnik]
