Manufacturer of the decade – now there’s an accolade eh? The recent award, gifted to Lexus by Auto Express magazine, is a shiny top shelf addition to the already brimming Lexus trophy cabinet.

If you’re in the market for a large sports saloon, then it might be worth giving the New Lexus GS F Sport a second look. Perhaps you remember the LF-Gh Concept, which looked like it could eat small animals whilst sitting stationary. The new GS F Sport manages to convey some of the concept’s intimidating presence, but with a distinctly more kid (and pet) friendly interior.
I am a big fan of vehicles which succeed in contradicting first impressions – Jaguar’s C-X75 which looks like it’s powered by a gas-guzzling 6-litre V12, but instead is propelled by a novel turbine-based hybrid powertrain, Volkswagen’s 172 bhp Transport Sportline which could give a sporty hatchback a run for its money and Porsche’s new 911 which offers 170 mph performance combined with near 40 mpg economy.
And now there’s the Lexus CT 200h F-Sport. Kind of.
I am in two minds about this new Maserati Kubang. On the one hand it seems entirely rational for Maserati to look on at Porsche’s Cayenne and see a market opportunity, that until now, it has missed out on. But on the other hand Maserati is Fangio, Moss and that famous 1955 Mille Miglia race win along with Dennis Jenks’. Is nothing sacred anymore?

Last month Eterniti Motors launched itself via a new landing page, announcing that its first car ‘Hemera’ would be shown at the forthcoming Frankfurt motor show.
We got in touch with Mark Carbery from Eterniti, who explained that the company is completely independent of any OEM and funded by an international group of investors and a team of people assembled with experience ranging from luxury and high performance vehicles to motorsport.
Infiniti have released images of their new ETHEREA concept which will is due to make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The ETHEREA, is a compact luxury model that is said to preview how a future entry-level Infiniti could look.
Some days I feel like I must have gone to sleep and woken in a parallel universe – perhaps the popular TV series, Fringe, is a documentary on life – a fictional metaphor, rather than the science fantasy we first thought?
We live in an age where Aston Martin make a cutesy city car, Lotus focus more on fashion than engineering and Porsche plan a top-of-the-range electric powered supercar. If we’d painted this vision of the future as recently as 5 years ago, you’d have laughed hysterically and questioned our sanity and yet here we are at the end of 2010 describing exactly such a reality.
