Which car (concept or preproduction) from the 2010 Geneva International Motor Show is your favorite?

Italian carmaker Ferrari displays its new green prototype 599 GTB Fiorano Hybrid in Geneva. The vehicle is one of the company's first forays into hybrid cars.

Models present the new, compact Giulietta by the Italian carmaker Alfa Romeo on March 2. The five-door hatchback will go on sale in Europe later this year.

The Porsche 918 Spyder concept is powered by a 500-horsepower gasoline V-8 and electric motors on the front and rear axle for a claimed total power output of 718 horsepower. Porsche says fuel economy should be somewhere around 78 miles per gallon. Porsche is not saying whether the 918 Spyder concept will go into production, but the technology and the styling are promising.

I like the first one, though no matter which one I pick, my bank account will never be big enough for me to see one in my drive way, be it driven by me or by someone coming to see me.

I'd be afraid they run a credit check just to let people sit in the driver's seat in the showroom. Still good to dream. Smile

You are probably correct on the credit check, and you probably have to sign a "you scratch it, you buy it" agreement upon getting in the car.

The Porsche 918 Spyder concept posts incredible performance, fuel economy numbers.

GENEVA--Reading the specs on the Porsche 918 Spyder concept shown at the 2010 Geneva auto show, we thought there must be some mistake, as 78 mpg and 3.2 seconds to 60 mph just doesn't sound possible. But the 918 Spyder achieves its numbers through massive horsepower, a lightweight body, and the effect of 16 miles of pure electric range on the New European Driving Cycle, Europe's equivalent to EPA fuel economy testing.
