Today's news is largely brought to you by previews for the Detroit Auto Show, with the odd spy shot, musclecar tuner turned hot-hatch engineer, and general industry news.
First up: the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL makes its long-awaited web debut before showing off on the floor of Cobo Hall. Next, the 2013 Porsche Boxster hangs out in front of our spys' lens for a bit, and the 2013 Buick Encore is teased. Hyundai's i-oniq concept drops onto the 'net ahead of Detroit (also in teaser form), and Roush takes its tools to the 2012 Ford Focus.
