Honda's speeding up its model updates to keep a fresher face than its rivals, and Volkswagen is looking to replace the Passat with a more American-inspired "new mid-size sedan" that it hopes will strike a brighter sales chord.

On the higher-performance side of things, our own Marty Padgett hops behind the wheel of the 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo to bring you a preview, and Mitsubishi is rumored to be planning a hybrid version of the next-generation Evolution XI.

Lamborghini is gearing up for the holiday season with its Christmas collection, and over at Green Car Reports, there's a list of why the Hyundai Elantra should be on your short list for Santa this year. All this, and a whole lot more, is sampled in the links below.
