« Reply #1 on: Jul 10, 2010, 09:01 PM »
Spy photographers in Spain have managed to snap pictures of what appears to be the Peugeot 508 Sport Wagon (SW).
                               
While heavily camouflaged, styling will likely be inspired by the '5 by Peugeot' concept which debuted at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. If you're still having a hard time trying to imagine what the production version will look like, the 508 sedan has already been caught undisguised.

Could Renault be preparing to revive the legendary Alpine brand? Possibly, according to recent reports.
                       
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.
