Chrysler's 7-hour press conference yesterday to announce its five-year product plan yielded many interesting tidbits, and even a few surprises, all of which we've broken into brands and put in plain English in our coverage at the link below. But that's not all that's happened over the past 24 hours.

Suzuki also released pricing of the new Kizashi sedan, and starting at $18,000, it's sure to make the big-name players in the segment take a cautious look at their own offerings. Talk of raising the gas tax is back on the table, unfortunately, and all of us that put fuel in a car ought to be paying attention.

On the sportier side of things, MotorAuthority has a look at the upcoming Porsche Boxster Spyder. Sound redundant? Well, it is, a little, but it's also pretty cool: a hardcore, enthusiast version of the Boxster S, due to hit American streets next February after a debut at next month's Los Angeles Auto Show.

Finally, over at CelebsAndCars, we have a video of Jay Leno's custom-designed twin-turbo V-6 SEMA Camaro special, so hit that link to see the late night car guru in his native habitat.
