You know that feeling you get when, after a few years, you remeet your biggest crush from high school and begin fantasizing about actually hooking up for real, only to be jerked back to harsh reality by the appearance of their present paramour?

AddBYD's Beijing Motor Show line-up includes Chin Dual Mode, remote-controlled F3

11Land Rover teases new Evoque special edition with Victoria Beckham

Land Rover is using the Beijing Motor Show to reveal a special edition Range Rover Evoque with Victoria Beckham – not "created with" or "by," just "with." It was announced almost a year ago, but Posh Becks has been busy doing the kinds of things keep a woman called Posh busy.

42China's JAC Heyue SC has a bit of Lotus and a dash of Ferrari in it

Remember JAC? It's the Chinese company so dedicated to cloning the Ford F-150 that it changed its logo to a blue oval in the grille. JAC is back with a new car for this month's Beijing Auto Show, this time showing off less consistent plagiarism and more pastiche with the Heyue SC coupe.

46Porsche debuts 420-HP 2013 Cayenne GTS [w/video]

The second coming is finally here, and it goes by the title of the 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS. Porsche has put 20 more horses under the hood to bring matters to 420 horsepower, and to get more out of them it has lowered the chassis a further 20 mm and installed a lower final-drive ratio. The one unkind note: whereas the first GTS was available with a six-speed manual, this one is fitted exclusively with Porsche's eight-speed Tiptronic S paddleshift gearbox.

36Beijing 2008: From Jeep clones to this? Beijing 700R concept

It turns out that the Geely GT didn't corner the market on coupe concepts at Auto China 2008. Beijing Automotive -- whose Wrangler-style B40 you saw earlier -- is also on the case with its 700R coupe concept, a clean and attractive design with some interesting details. An accent line angles upward, merging with muscular rear haunches, giving the car a nice, aggressive presence.
