Just making this thread to clear up some confusion. I didn't see a specific thread so I'm making one myself.
I've been seeing in many places around the web this particular picture being described as the goblin mounthttp://blackriver.users.fluxflashor.net/Images/Cataclysm%20Beta%20v11927/Goblin%20Hotrod.jpg
When the Hot Rod is infact not. It, as far as we know atm, is a vehicle, like a quest vehicle of some sort, or the future Mechano hog. Why? Because it is a 3 seater. Yes, it seats not 2 but 3 and in the wmv it is located grouped together with the siege vehicles.
However, if people remember, the motor cycle mount was grouped with vehicles in the beginning too but, has since been moved to the mounts section in wmv. So, like I said, it could be the next engineering mount. It's just that we haven't seen the alliance version yet or it could be a neutral cartel faction's engineering mount available to both sides, so it'd look the same for either faction.
I've also seen a picture floating around the net of that particular hot rod where the backseat is instead a turret gun similar to the ones found at Toshley's Station :3
sadly I cannot find it atm though :(
As for the real goblin mount, the go-kart, like in the picture they used at Blizzcon, is a one seater.
You've all seen the picture before but, for the sake of not having to go around looking for it...http://img161.imageshack.us/img161/1753/gokartrenders.jpg
Just for comparison.
Hope that clears somethings up.

the stagecoach is NOT a mount, it is in the vehicle section as well along with the horde version.
it is unknown atm what it will be used for but my guess is that it will be related to the Gilneas BG.
and as I said the Hot rod is not the epic goblin mount, it's a 3 seater vehicle.
would be rather unfair if the horde, let alone goblins got a 3 seater for their racial mount.
I'd love some proof of this hot rod comment. Since we've seen videos of the goblin mount that claim a mount that looked exactly like it to be the epic mount.

it's a quest vehicle in the starting zone, you pick a bunch of people up, also run over some others, GTA style.
taken from someone who is actually in the alpha

I thought that wasn't from Blizz...
