Spied: new mid-size Jaguar with stunning looks. All welcome to apply. Please. Soon.

DaimlerChrysler's smart car is a star again. But after appearing alongside Tom Hanks and that awful hair in The Da Vinci Code, shouldn't it find a better agent?

Friends of Ford, be encouraged. The Edge is the real deal. We'll take ours turbocharged via SVT, please.

Elsewhere in not-so-good Ford news, the founder of Chick-fil-A is mourning the Taurus and celebrating his unbelievable waffle fries in one fell swoop. Really, will the Koreans at Kia be able to top this?

Los Angeles' auto show wants to upstage Detroit. One way they're doing it? A Design Challenge that pits automakers against each other and with the environment. Check out the way-cool VW Nanospyder sketches and you'll see why we're ready for 2050.

Lexus wants you to be in on the hybrid living lifestyle. Think passive-solar granite flooring and recycled Crane stationery, if you can stand yourself for knowing about them already.

Finally this week, we're so damn glad to be done with all the BMW 3-Series Convertible spy shots. Now we can totally focus on getting the new Benz C-Class out in public and shutting down that spy-shot money machine.
