There are a handful of automakers making motorcycles these days: Honda, Suzuki, Peugeot, and of course BMW. That’s about the extent of it, but the latter’s German rivals won’t be letting the Bavarian automaker keep the market all to itself for much longer.

Tesla has, if nothing else, crafted a unique automobile in the Roadster. It’s electric, very attractive and highly desirable. Up next, assuming all goes according to plan (a rather big assumption, granted), the Model S sedan will be equally special in the global automotive marketplace.
While speculation is rampant, the unveiling of the DeZir concept is fanning the flames. The stunning coupe features a tubular steel frame and Kevlar composite body that is similar to the Megane Trophy race car, which is built in Dieppe, France. The latter is an important detail, considering Alpine was headquartered in the city.
On again, off again. How else could we describe the production prospects of the GTbyCitroën? The supercar concept was devised jointly by the French automaker and by the electronic wizards behind the Gran Turismo video game franchise, but rather than leaving it up to cyberspace alone, Citroën built a real-life showcar version.

U.S. based TranStar Racing says its design is based on the Corvette Cheetah concept and vows to break every major record, from being the fastest on a straight line to being the quickest around the Nurburgring.
