2010 Lotus Elite Concept
The show opens tomorrow to the media, but we've already previewed some of the dozens of new cars we'll bring you live later this month. Cars like the nifty Kia Pop electric-car concept, the mysterious Lamborghini concept car, a new Lexus IS lineup, and the Range Rover Evoque and Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class.
There's so much yet to come, before the doors of the Paris Expo even open, we've assembled this guide to our coverage of the show so you can get ready--just as we're planning ahead for a marathon of first-night reveals, 15-minute press conferences, and the wrap-up yet to come.
Beginning here, and through the show's press events on Sept. 30 and October 1, we'll bring you a live stream of news, photos and videos--and we'll be bringing you up to speed via Twitter and Facebook.

2012 Hyundai Veloster: Whatever it's called, a new small Hyundai sporty car is set to appear at the Paris show. What's so unique about it? Plenty, but you'll have to come back closer to month's end.
2012 Lotus Elite: A new Lotus supercar gets a concept-car cousin -- and a Lexus V-8 to boot.
Lotus roadster: With the focus on the bigger Lotuses in the pond, we've also heard rumors of a modern-day Lotus Seven being reincarnated on the Paris show floor. Holy Lazarus!
2011 Lotus Evora S: By the time we digest all that hotness, the updated Evora S will seem like old news. Wait, is it already?
Ferrari California hybrid: Shudder to think--or not--but there may be a more efficient California under wraps, prepped for the Expo show days.
2011 Audi R8 Spyder V-8: The fabulous Audi sportscar steps things down a notch with a capable, if not electric, V-8 option.
2011 Aston Martin DB9: The refreshed big Aston coupe makes the Chunnel trip from Gaydon, with a light makeover but no more power.
2012 Chevrolet Aveo: It's finally here, and looking pert as it reports for duty.
2012 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque: It's a long name, and Sporty Spice is involved somehow--and yet we're still making time to see the two-door sport-SUV make its marque.
2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class: The Stuttgart automaker sold everyone on the notion of a four-door coupe. Now, it has to sell us on a new direction, away from svelte and into something a little more severe.
