Who is currently envisioning Mars cars?

Where can I find accurate info on the types of vehicles currently being considered for future human exploration of the Martian landscape? Though I have found details of potential manned ground vehicles for lunar use, I can't seem to locate any (realistic) material on proposed land vehicles for Mars. Any help? Thanks!

James Cameron is working on these issues for NASA. The Mars Society also looks at rover concepts and designs.

I couldn't find anything on manned Mars rovers specifically, but The National Space Science Data Center has a description of a Crewed Mission to Mars that references NASA Special Publication 6107 - Human Exploration of Mars: The Reference Mission of the NASA Mars Exploration Study Team, which you might find helpful. I would also suggest checking out Encyclopedia Astronautica, if you serach on Mars you can read about concepts for Mars missions through the years.
