Well, I'll believe it when I see it, but that's what Sergio Marchionne told Automobile recently. Apparently it will be based on the new SRT Barracuda platform. I'm already saving up for the new Miata-based Alfa Spider, so I hope they aren't just messing with me.

It's a special-edition GT-R painted gold in honor of Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt, and was designed in collaboration with the athlete for auction to benefit his children's charity foundation. Other than that, and Bolt's signature on the hood, I don't entirely get what's so special about it. But then I normally skip the Olympics. Check out the auction on eBay.

Anyone can go out and purchase an old car, but it’s more about what you do with that old car after the purchase that really counts. Older cars are easy on the eyes, they have personality and a soul that newer cars can’t match. They’re machines, not computers and because of this we have the ability to tinker and develop a relationship with them. Take this Porsche 356 Cabriolet owned by Ken Sirlin. Since purchasing the car in 1985, Ken has not only driven it countless miles, but actually ran in the Liege Rome Liege vintage car rally, one of the most prestigious events in Europe. So, like I said, it’s not just about owning the car, but about what you do with it that really makes it count. Watch the video on Vimeo!

Alright, so maybe you're asking yourself what is the deal with this nutjob and this old beat up taxi cab. Well, this is going to sound horribly cliche, lame and perhaps a bit scripted - but for as far back as I can remember, this car has been a long time coming, since I, your humble and astute author, happen to be a pseudo authority on cars that are one jump start away from the junkyard. I just happen to like cars; like some people collect buttons, guns or Beatles memorabilia. However, before you start thinking ALL my sentences are going to be all long run ons, let me explain that my affection towards the automobile is a bit different from others. You see, I don’t like “nice" cars.  I like cars that no one else wants. My whole life I’ve always been the woody wagon driver, the beat up police car owner, and yes - even a old cab owner. I have no desire to own a new BMW, but if I *had* to have one, I think I would prefer one that has been totaled. Even when I was a kid, I would take a hammer to my matchbox cars or paint the wheels black - it’s just a part of who I am. But what I have always really really *REALLY* wanted, was a NYC Taxi. You can't get anymore "cars that no one wants" than a NYC Taxi.  I love the energy of a NYC Taxi - they are just….different. Why are they different? Because they simply do not exist for very long when they are done being a taxi. I mean really - who wants a car that THOUSANDS of people have burped, vomited, farted and....*ahem* who knows what else inside of? I guess I just feel sorry for them. I would challenge anyone to find a NYC taxi that is still around from the 70's, or 80's or even the 90's.  They are few and far between. A few, and I mean a VERY few NYC Checkers still exist, but, well....not very many.

The Mazda6 will join the growing ranks of optionally diesel-equipped cars available in the US, and the production version was unveiled yesterday at the LA Auto Show. The first run of diesel 6's will be powered by Mazda's 2.5L Skyactiv turbodiesel, which generates 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque. Then halfway through the first year, that powerplant will be joined by the somewhat less powerful Euro-spec 2.2L turbodiesel. Both versions will be available with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. As owner of a car powered by Mazda's last attempt at a US-market diesel, which incidentally didn't age so well, I still can't help but be stoked. See more pics at Carscoop.

The last of the manufacturers to unveil their 2013 Sprint Cup Car, Chevrolet has finally taken the wraps off its Holden-based racer, the SS. In addition to providing Chevy's new flagship for NASCAR, where it'll be replacing the venerable Impala, the SS spearhead's what will be Chevy's reintroduction of a RWD V8 sedan into the US market. The civilian SS, which will be built in Australia, will make its official debut in February to coincide with the Daytona 500, and then hitting showrooms in August as a 2014 model. More pics below the jump, and read more at AOL.
