9Edag planning this lightweight backlit-fabric sports car for Geneva

At the Geneva Motor Show this year EDAG Engineering showed off its Genesis Cockpit concept. Built with a 3D printing technique called "fused deposition modeling," it was a skeletal passenger cell suspended inside a protective shell. At next year's Geneva show EDAG will present another take on the natural forms combined with 3D printing with its Light Cocoon concept (click the image to enlarge).

3Rinspeed previews Budii concept ahead of Geneva show

Every year Frank Rinderknecht and his team at Rinspeed come to the Geneva Motor Show with another fantastical concept car, and next year's will be no exception. Though the show may still be several months away, the Swiss outfit is already giving us a glimpse of what to expect.

12Korea's Oullim Spirra supercar heading to Geneva under electric power

South Korea has emerged as a global powerhouse in the automotive industry. It's home not only to Hyundai and Kia, but General Motors (having taken over Daewoo), SsangYong and Renault Samsung Motors also make cars there. Unfortunately not a one of them makes a serious sports car. But that's where the Oullim Spirra comes in.

18Spirra EV actually headed for production?

The mysterious South Korean supercar might have a life after all

The Korean supercar from Oullim Motors, called the Spirra, is making headlines again, this time with regards to an electric powertrain. We've known that there were plans for an electric version of the car since 2011, when we saw a Spirra EV in a video showcasing how the cars are built. Now, Dutch investor Roland Notermans has spoken with Holland's De Telegraaf about plans to actually get the thing built.

14Christian von Koenigsegg puts finishing touches on first One:1

The Koenigsegg Agera One:1 has opportunity to become the new king of the supercar world. Its twin-turbocharged, 5.0-liter V8 has been tuned up to 1,341 horsepower (1,360 PS) thanks in part to its proprietary, 3D-printed variable geometry turbos. Plus, with power equal to one megawatt, the company claims it has created the world's first megacar.

AddMaserati offers peek into Alfieri concept's design

This year marks Maserati's hundredth anniversary, which means we'll be spending the rest of 2014 talking about all the company's planned celebrations. The Alfieri Concept, shown at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, though, is quite possibly the most noteworthy part of the brand's centennial.

48Ford UK exec says EVs are a good way to lose a fortune

Stateside, Ford execs are quick to point out the automaker's expansion in the plug-in sector. And despite a minimal presence in the pure EV space, the Blue Oval has been promoting its plug-in vehicles as part of an overall effort to boost fleetwide fuel economy. Too bad the company's UK chief didn't get the memo.

21Cadillac could 'flourish' in Australia, says marketing chief

Cadillac might have its best product mix in recent history, and GM's luxury brand is looking to expand. In fact, it might even be making a trip Down Under, at least according to the company's global marketing chief.

13Audi reveals revised RS5 DTM for 2014

There existed an era in German touring car racing between when the DTM series was revived in 2000 and when BMW rejoined in 2012. During that twelve-season span, the wins were pretty evenly divided between Audi and Mercedes-Benz, the only two manufacturers who took part. Audi won six drivers' titles in that time and Mercedes won six (although Benz won considerably more constructors' titles).

1BMW wants to expand DriveNow carsharing program to 25 new cities

Daimler's Car2go car-sharing service just announced that it will debut in Rome, its 26th global city. Now, BMW says it wants to expand its own carsharing program to, wait for it, 25 more cities. Coincidence? We think not.

30Mercedes-Benz working on S-Class EV in accelerated green car lineup?

With Mercedes-Benz bringing out coupe and plug-in hybrid versions of its S-Class sedan, the German automaker just may follow through with a battery-electric variant as well. That's what the company's Uwe Ernstberger told the folks at Top Gear during the Geneva Motor Show. And while he noted the company still needs to work in a larger-than-usual battery pack and was less than specific with details, he did envision an all-electric S-Class "in the future." Of course, rumors started bubbling about a

70Apple CarPlay drawing early safety concerns [w/video]

Apple's CarPlay infotainment system hasn't made it into a single vehicle yet, and it's already drawing criticism for distracting drivers among safety advocates. The new tech unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show pairs users' iPhones with the car's dashboard display to make calls, dictate messages and listen to music. Some automakers, like Volvo, also let users interact with the HVAC system from the screen.

7Baby Bentley studied for 2020, but it might not be cheaper

Bentley may step down a segment with a new, smaller luxury car that it hopes to have ready by 2019. The British luxury marque's fifth model line, assuming that its SUV ever makes it to market, though, is still in the earliest planning stages.

15Mini nixes plans for 7-seater, Countryman to stay largest model

Contrary to popular belief, it seems that Mini's growth plans do have a limit both in size and number of models. During the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, it unveiled the six-door Clubman concept (pictured above) that was 4.4-inches longer and about two-inches wider than even the current Countryman crossover. Mini design chief Anders Warming says that this is the new size limit for its models, and the BMW subsidiary isn't building a larger, seven-passenger vehicle above the current Countryman.

18Qoros eBIQE concept rolls out with new 3 Hatch

The unveiling of the Qoros 3 hatch was somewhat disappointing for us at AutoblogGreen in that it wasn't a production version of the plug-in hybrid concept that it showed last year in Geneva. The Chinese automaker has, however, blunted that trauma by rolling out a handsome two-wheel human/electric hybrid that we'd probably prefer to pilot more than that car. Weather permitting, at least.

49Mercedes SL R129 is a quarter-century-old revolutionary

It's been 25 years since Mercedes-Benz took the wraps off its R129-series SL roadster at the 1989 Geneva Motor Show. While it may look dated now, it was a revolutionary product in its day – a day that lasted a good eleven years.

11Land Rover teases new Discovery 'family' as model celebrates 25 years

Land Rover is acting like it has something very big up its sleeve. Its Discovery, known as the LR4 on our shores, is celebrating its 25th birthday, and at the Geneva Motor Show, LR announced that "Discovery will become a family of vehicles from 2015."

7We obsessively covered the 2014 Geneva Motor Show

With just under 80 debuts rounding out our coverage of the Geneva Motor Show, it's fair to say that we are spent. It's been a busy couple of days, and once again, the Swiss expo proved to be a great venue for hot, new debuts from global automakers.

22Peugeot 308 SW is the kind of small wagon that's tough to come by in America

The Peugeot 308 SW may not exactly stand out against the backdrop of tuner specials and concept cars here at the Geneva Motor Show, but with the action winding down we can already say that it is one of the most relevant for European buyers.
