Mercedes Gran Turismo Concept Car
Every year I go to the Auto Show here in LA and challenge myself to get a few decent pictures with my little P7700 point and shoot. To be honest, I’d probably be better off with a phone camera by this point in its model life, but its a great challenge. Not many pics this year because frankly, 99% of new cars are crap. Which is sad, no?
The best Porsche at the show was one that was 30 years old.
The new Macan, a cut down Cayenne priced at $49k is a tiny, plastic abomination.
If you didn’t know VW owned Porsche, you do now.
Are their sportscars still great? Yes. But their new suburban wagons are truly awful. And hey, to prove my point, here’s somebody ordering one:
COOLEST THINGS AT THE SHOW:
Best car in the show was a ’68 Camaro that belongs to ‘comedian’ Tim Allen.
It was not for sale.
He has many other cars.
The Lexus LF-LC concept car looked very tasty.
In the background you can see the terrific Volvo stand, which now its Chinese owned is playing up its Scandi heritage to the hilt.
Great idea, excellent architectural execution, terrible, terrible cars. We miss you Volvo.
This poor woman had to spend the day talking up Sebastian Vettel, and how he’d once sat in an Infiniti. Well, as long as they’re paying you Sebastian…..
Given that Infiniti is primarily a North American brand I’m not entirely sure they’re getting their money’s worth out of F1. Perhaps they sell tens of millions in Japan?
Jaguar need to tell their sales people to go a little easy on the botox.
