Exclamation upcoming car news/info courtesy of *cough* Popular Science

this is pretty much most of what i remember, not the entirety of the article, still some definitely interesting tidbits...

Acura - TL redesign, MDX replacing the SLX (rodeo hehe), integra redesign/rebadging and soon to be only 3dr, NSX to get a complete redesign w/ 4.0l V8 in 2002 or 2003, newly RWD RL may share that same engine

Audi - RS4 (S4 wagon) debuts for 2001 or 2002, S8 in da HOUSE! (made infamous by Ronin) finally headin over, 340 or 360HP, however this coincides with what i heard bout the new A8 6.0l W-12 redesign with 420HP as well as optional built-in fax machine and tv/vid unit... daaaaaamn..."sporty" version of A6 mentioned, not sure if its S6 or not (would have to have the S8 engine considering the 4.2 300HP V8 is already optional for the A6)

BMW - not long till the new M3 gets here and starts a massive smackdown... 4cyl BMW's coming as well (Mini?), XI AWD system may make its way into 3 series wagon

Dodge - rumors of R/T and ACR versions of the Neon coming back, new Viper of course

Ford - Contour gone, cougar to get 200HP, *cough* sucks

Honda - civic Si coming back soon, no more hatchback, lude most likely being wiped out, accord coupe and sedan get redesigned in 02 or 03

GM - GM & Subaru to jointly develop flat six for GM SUV or miniute (damn)

Infiniti - Q45 to be redesigned with friggin ~320+ HP! G20 may actually get RWD and a 6cyl

Jaguar - smaller jaguar to be released (F-type i believe) to be available with AWD and small V6, also mention of a jag roadster (T-type?)

Lexus - bigger V8s for everybody, new 4.3s replace current 4.0 with bout 25lbs-ft more torque same HP, sheetmetal revisions to GS430, LS430 to become new toyota flagship to compete with benz S-class with tons of new features, hardtop convertible SC430 debuts as well as manual-trannied IS300

Mercedes - new V12s for S and CL classes, CLK gets an AMG 5.5V8 with 342HP

Nissan - new Z rumored to have 300 HP for under $25000 (i find this highly improbable)

Porsche - Cayenne SUV to debut, along with limited production GT3

Subaru - flat-six to work its way down to other legacy models (finally), mention of "limited production turbo model"...

Toyota - MKV Supra may appear with lower price tag and more vicious exterior, hehe

Volvo - S60 coming soon, not too interesting, however not mentioned in the article: word on the street sez an S60 300HP AWD sedan concept is runnin around somewhere, which would surely kick a$$ if it made it to production
