This year’s Geneva Motor Show will take place between March 7th and 17th in Geneva, Switzerland. Like always, there will be a number of vehicles making their debuts at the show. One of the debuts we are particularly excited about is the McLaren P1’s. Successor to the British automaker’s F1 supercar, the long-awaited P1 is rumored to have a starting price around $1.2 million. McLaren will likely only make about 500 copies of the car, which they hope will be a direct competitor to Ferrari’s upcoming Enzo replacement. Coincidentally, the F150—as Ferrari’s been calling it—is also scheduled to debut in Geneva.

As you very well may know, Elon Musk founded Tesla Motors in Silicon Valley about ten years ago. Shortly afterwards, he took on the role of CEO. In addition to that position, Musk currently serves as the electric car company’s head of product design. With that in mind, plus the fact that Musk has been known to be somewhat more vocal and opinionated than the traditional CEO, it’s no surprise that he had something to say when his latest product—the Model S—was criticized in a recent NY Times article.

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 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.
