It’s that time of year again—time for J.D. Power and Associates to announce the results of their annual new vehicle reliability survey. As usual, the market research firm polled car owners across the country and tallied the number of problems they had with their vehicles in the past year. This year’s survey focused on vehicles purchased during the 2010 model year. As The L.A. Times reports, topping the list of most reliable vehicle brands three years after purchase are Porsche, Lexus, Lincoln and Toyota. Not a fan of these marques? You’ll be glad to know that J.D. Power and Associates also found that cars on average are becoming more reliable.

As we explained in an article last week, Alfa Romeo hasn’t sold a car stateside in quite some time. Two years ago at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, however, the Italian automaker introduced a car that they said would change all that—the 4C concept. Today, weeks in advance of this year’s Geneva Motor Show, the Italian automaker finally revealed the production version of the 4C. Though we were already excited about the sports car's arrival, which is scheduled for later this year, after seeing the images Alfa Romeo released this morning (above)—we simply can’t wait.

YouTube user Marchettino brings us the latest spy video of Ferrari’s upcoming Enzo replacement. Though the F150—as Ferrari’s been calling it—won’t make its official debut until about a month from now at the Geneva Motor Show, Marchettino caught the super car out and about testing in Italy at Ferrari’s Fiorano track. As Motor Authority reports, this is the first time the F150’s engine notes have been caught on tape. Even though the car will likely utilize two electric motors in addition to a V12, it still sounds as impressive as any Ferrari we've ever heard.

Details surfaced this morning about the potential successor to Mercedes-Benz’ SLS AMG—the SLC AMG. Intended to compete with the Porsche 911s of the world, the SLC is expected to start at a price point of $110,000—or about $90,000 less than the starting MSRP of the SLS (pictured above). Additionally, though the new sports coupe will share a platform with the SLS, it will likely be a somewhat shorter, lighter, and more agile version of its predecessor.

Unless you count the limited production 8C Competizione, which Alfa Romeo briefly sold through Maserati’s U.S. dealer network in 2009, the Italian automaker hasn’t sold a car in the United States for quite some time now. However, since it left the U.S. market in 1995—in order to ensure that out of sight did not indeed mean out of mind—Alfa has been vocal about its intention to someday grace our shores once again. Though the Fiat SpA-owned automaker has missed quite a few target dates to do so over the past five or six years, we’re pretty sure that we’ll see an Alfa Romeo 4C by the end of 2013. Additionally, as Bloomberg reports, we might also see an Alfa-branded crossover shortly thereafter.

Founded just last year in 2012, the United Arab Emirates’ W Motors has already designed, engineered, and manufactured a supercar. We’re not talking about your run-of-the-mill supercar either—assuming, of course, that supercars can actually be run-of-the-mill. Rather, we’re talking about a supercar with a starting price of $3.4 million dollars. What, you might ask, could possibly warrant such an outrageous price?
