Episode #142 of the Autoblog Podcast is here, this week with the (not very) dynamic duo of Chris and Dan carrying the baton while seemingly the rest of the world is on vacation. We're certainly in the lull before auto show season swings into full effect, but there are still a few things to talk about. Pricing of the VW Golf TDI starts us off before moving on to cover the reportedly tight supply of Lexus HS250h hybrids, which may affect the car's U.S. launch. More excitingly, the possibility of a Lexus hatch is pondered before moving on from Toyota's fancy division. Last week, the podcast touched on the Spyker Aileron, and this week we went after the D8 Peking-to-Paris model in all its resplendent over-the-topness. Speaking of dramatic cars, we wrap up with the news that there may be three new Porsche models in the works to diversify that maker's line and increase volume. We fish through your questions before calling it a night a bit past the hour mark.

A hearty "thank you" goes out to our listeners for all of your great reviews – your efforts got us featured on iTunes this week, and we appreciate it. You can join in the fun (if you haven't already) by leaving a review at iTunes, filling out our survey, or emailing us with questions/comments at Podcast at Autoblog dot com. See you next week!

      I would love to see a Flex like crossover on the Fusion platform. The Flex is just two big for me and it would not fix in my garage. But imagine the same look, maybe slightly longer fusion with the square box design of the Flex. Ford could use all the drive trains including the Hybrid drive train.

        Tom: you just described the concept version of the Flex. It was a four seater with wood floors, and while we love us some Flex, it may have looked better when it was a bit smaller.

      Thank you for doing the podcast guys. I always look forward to it every week

      You guys have talked up Ford products enough that I just might go test drive a Flex and/or Edge.

      Thanks a LOT!

      you may think the LM002 is uncool. You should drive one, it actually is quite cool!! Or perhaps it is because they are so exclusive and people don't know what the heck it is, and then they discover the bull on the back, it is so ugly it is cool!
