The Car Connection brings its own pre-Paris show coverage to the web with a round-up of vehicles that builds on what we brought you last week from Car Design News. This article also mentions the Toyota Prius GT, a tuned version of the hybrid car. Many people may not realize that hybrid technology could eventually make a better performance car due to the large amount of torque produced by electric motors. Plus the original Prius was tuned strictly for maximum efficiency, not necessarily performance. The GT produces 147 horsepower. Oh, the car show will also debut vehicles like the Mercedes A-Class and VW GTi as well.
