At first glance, this story doesn't seem to have much to do with American drivers--Steinmetz, in Germany, has developed a new propane-powered Astra that is hailed as being easy on both fuel and the evrionment, without sacrificing power or style. The green Astra promises 260 horsepower, sports clutch and suspension, and too-cool twin tailpipes. Sounds like the American dream, but you have to go all the way to Germany to get one, right?

Maybe not. The Astra is the future successor to the Saturn Ion. Nobody's promising anything yet, but the Ion "is expected" to share a lot of technology with new Astras. Nobody's saying anything yet, but a propane-powered, street-race worthy Saturn just might might be in the works. [Source: Edmunds Inside Line]
