Here’s  a preview of five stories we’re particularly keen on following.

Lexus has already leaked photos of the  Lexus LF-LC Sports Coupe Concept which they will formally debut on Monday. The concept will be hybrid powered and represent the new styling direction for the brand.

Scion will be debuting a new show stand they are calling the ‘Thunderdome’ Experience. Gone is the ‘rack’ display pictured above. The new stand will be dominated by a 15′ tall LED display structure. Visitors will also get to check out Scion sX – an award-winning, immersive guest experience that features branded content, user participation, and information sharing.

Volkswagen will debut some sort of mystery electric concept vehicle.

Chevy also has a mystery concept to unveil. Jalopnik speculates it might be a modern revival of the Chevelle muscle car.
