No one has ever accused the auto industry of rushing madly into the future. For every superclean electro-diesel-charged concept at an event like Detroit's North American International Auto Show, there are approximately 15 Hemis. Still, the show floor always contains plenty of clues about how technology is changing the way we drive. And based on what we saw this week in Detroit, we can be sure that plug-in cars are still very much alive, self-driving vehicles are inevitable, and a German luxury sedan will soon break the sound barrier. Here are nine highlights. And for more coverage of the Detroit auto show, go here.
Honda is vaporware.
They're finally catching up with the Accord and Civic after a whuppin'. Sick of seeing this luxury badged parade queen. Every mainstream auto manufacturer makes a RWD sports car. Honda had a perfectly good one they let go stale and die. The S2000.
Now you get an updated handjob from the king of missionary position automakers. Yawn....
I don't know if the ELR is going to sell, or how long GM is going to be building it- but it sure is the best looking electric hybrid on the road.
The Acura NSX Concept reminds me of a black panther cat (powerful and too irresistable to not admire and stare back at) as described in my new free poem at www.indefenseofcats.com/Cat-Book.html#BelovedCatPoem
Seriously? No Model X? The Model X should definitely be on there. And no Nissan Leaf. Do you realize you can now afford to buy an EV for under 20k? No, just expensive cars on here. Which the Model X belongs with, actually. Why don't you put great cars that are innovative on here, instead of just the old look, gas guzzling Audis and such?
Love the wheels on the Acura NSX!!
The NSX, The Vette, The Caddy, The Resonance. All have distinctive lines that should not be destroyed by garbage accountants and BS drunk marketing managers. The rest all look like they wish they were a Lancer Evo. How stupid do car companies think car enthusiasts are these days?
I still love my 2 door turbo convertible PT.
It feels heavy for its size that gives it a plush ride but runs around town great. One of my favorite cars to own outside of a 76' 455 TA (just raw balls to drive past 170 and still have pedal left.)
I have to add, egress from these vehicles is actually paying attention to who affords them as well.
really awesoome cars
i wish i had few
Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job Ive had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringin home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, www.Mojo50.com
