During the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, Nissan showed off its Sport Sedan Concept (pictured above), an orange creation meant to foreshadow the next generation of the brand’s “Four-Door Sports Car,” the Maxima. For the 2014 Beijing Motor Show, though, Nissan is going to deliver a Chinese take on a future four-door, with the New Sedan Concept (imaginative name, we know).
Like the Nissan Friend-Me Concept from the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show, the NSC has been designed by Nissan Design China in Beijing. Outside of that, information is in short supply. Nissan claims this latest concept is targeted at the Chinese digital lifestyle. Whether it serves as an evolution of the Friend-Me’s swoopy design or a regional take on Nissan’s Detroit concept, though, remains to be seen.
We’ll have the full slate of info on the Nissan New Sedan Concept, along with everything else that happens at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show, when the floor opens on April 23. Take a look below for the official press release from Nissan, which also includes a recap of previously debuted models that will be shown at Beijing.

If you can’t beat the media, join them.
That, apparently, was Bart Scott’s thinking as he accepted an offer with CBS to join the network’s revamped pregame “The NFL Today” show. Last week, in a dramatic change of direction, CBS added retired tight end Tony Gonzalez to the program, and it dropped longtime analysts Dan Marino and Shannon Sharpe in the process.
Reports say that Scott will fill a variety of roles and, along with Gonzalez, will join join James Brown, Boomer Esiason, Bill Cowher and insider Jason La Canfora for a pregame show that has fallen behind in the ratings among the other NFL networks. CBS will be adding Thursday Night Football to its broadcasts this season.
Scott spent last season on CBS Sports Network’s The Other Pregame Show as an analyst on Sundays.
“Bart joining The NFL Today is a natural progression from his outstanding work during his first season on TOPS,” CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus said. “Bart brings a dynamic personality and unique perspective as a recently retired player providing strong opinions on all the hot-button issues on a weekly basis. We are confident he will continue to bring that perspective and those opinions to The NFL Today.”
But Scott was notoriously testy with the media during his playing days — especially toward the end — which stretched from 2002 to 2012 with the Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets. Scott tried to create a media boycott amongst his teammates in the Jets’ locker room following a victory in 2012, which proved to be Scott’s final season in the league.
Welcome to the media, Bart. Hope no one tries to boycott talking to you during the 2014 season.

However, we did find a very interesting video that we thought we’d share with you.

Downtown Detroit in January is not exactly in the brief for most people’s dream vacations, but the fact is that the Detroit Auto Show is still mecca for gearheads the world over. With the auto industry newly resurgent – budgets raised and prospects glittering for 2014 – the outlay of new metal in the storied halls of Cobo was as good as it has been in years.
Massively important new production cars, ultra-performance vehicles that will end up in heated garages and on bedroom walls, and concepts that stretch the boundaries of what is possible, all could be seen in thick array.

What you’re looking at here is the almost-here third-generation Audi TT. Just compress the suspension a bit to take away its Allroad pretensions and rake its backlight to align better with the previous generation’s aesthetic, and you’re pretty well there. What you’re looking at officially, of course, is the Audi Allroad Shooting Brake, a four-seat E-Tron hybrid showcar powered by Audi’s venerable 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder (good for 292 horsepower) backed by a 40-kW electric motor and a secondary 85-kW motor acting upon the rear axle to provide low- and moderate-speed drive. The latter also provides through-the-road Quattro all-wheel drive when extra traction and power is called for.
All-in, Audi says the Allroad Shooting Brake’s ETron powertrain is good for 408 horsepower and total system torque of 479 pound-feet, enough to haul the 3,500-pound German to 62 miles per hour in 4.6 seconds and up to a governed 155 mph. Despite that tidy performance, Audi says the Allroad Shooting Brake offers robust fuel consumption of 1.9 liters per 100k, equivalent to 124 miles per gallon, with a bladder-busting range of 510 miles.
As previewed last week at the Consumer Electronics Show, the Allroad Shooting Brake features Audi’s forthcoming Virtual Cockpit technology, which includes a massive 12.3-inch in-cluster TFT screen that provides digital gauges and telltales for the navigation and audio systems, among other features. The latter’s information can be controlled by Audi’s latest-generation Multi Media Interface (MMI), whose brilliant gesture control pad now sits resident atop an enlarged selector knob between the seats.
