Volvo C30 electric concept, 2010 Detroit Auto Show

Winding our way toward the holidays this week, the struggle to save Saab from history's trash bin goes on at Spyker even after GM shut down the purchase process last Friday. Spyker's efforts may not be in vain, but we don't know yet if GM will be satisfied with the Dutch company's revisions to their offer. Read more in the links below.

As the cold closes in, that means one thing in the world of auto shows: Detroit is drawing nearer. Catch all the pre-show coverage at Motor Authority and stay tuned as the show draws nearer to get the latest as it happens. While you're there this morning, check out the new spy shots of the 2011 Volkswagen Touareg or read about Subaru's doubt on the success of their version of the Toyota joint sports coupe in the U.S. If you've always wondered whether the more luxurious Land Rovers are capable of serious off-roading, check out the review of the Land Rover Experience Driving School, too.

Looking back to Detroit, GreenCarReports has a preview of Volvo's all-electric C30 Hatchback (pictured), a concept that will hit the floor at Cobo in just a few weeks time. Alongside the BMW Concept ActiveE based on the 1-Series, luxurious but compact EVs are shaping up as a theme for the show.

Ever been curious about what kind of car your favorite star drives? Chances are at least one of the celebs you're infatuated with is on the list over at CelebsAndCars today with a roundup of the unlikely vehicles famous folks keep in their garages.
