Hooniverse Asks- What NAIAS Debut Gives You The Biggest Car Boner?

Robert Emslie January 18, 2013 Hooniverse Asks

 

NAIAS

 

The North American International Auto Show is America’s car show – sort of like the Super Bowl and World Series all rolled into a single week’s worth of buy our new crap please automobilia. The show will be opening to the public tomorrow and runs through Sunday of the following weekend. Of course, as followers of this and other car sites you’ve already seen all the new there is thanks to the circus that is the media preview, and hence having to be there in person might seem anticlimactic. 

Or maybe not. After all, pictures just don’t do the new ‘Vette justice, and aren’t you simply dying to see the show car that will become the next Corolla in the metal? I mean, Ermahgerd People, NISSAN VERSA NOTE!  

So, before you go, or, if you’re like 90% of the nation’s population and don’t have the good fortune to live within easy driving distance of Cobo Center, what have you seen so far that really piqued your interest glands? Do you like that new Corvette? Does the small in size but not in heart and luxury Lincoln MK C concept have you crying tears of joy over that brand’s triumphant return? What NAIAS debut has you really excited?

    None. There is an interesting small new Honda concept called the Gear that was introduced this week.
    But that was at the Montréal International Auto Show… So I guess the correct answer is: Blame Canada!

    My answer is 5 posts previous,where can I buy this Cadillac? What a transformation this brand has been through.

    • danleym says:

      Yep, ten years from being the car that even your grandparents wouldn't buy because "only old people drive those," Cadillac now has a pretty awesome lineup. I would gladly have any of the CTS models.

  3. IronBallsMcG says:

    The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel gives me anticipatory turgidity for a compression ignition Wrangler.

  4. P161911 says:

    Corvette of course.

  5. muthalovin says:

    Also, that new F-150 makes my nethers tingle significantly.

    I think this year's NAIAS gave me erectile disfunction. *checks drawers* Yup, flaaaaaccccciiid.

  7. Tanshanomi says:

    I don't even know what cars are on the list to choose from.

    • Remdog says:

      Most underrated car at the show. Beautiful car with an amazing engine and the right transmission. I'd love to have everyone admiring it hear it startup. A v8 would definitely be unexpected.

  8. rpdred6 says:

    NSX definently and the Vette of course, but I also liked the Nissan Resonance, Smart and Toyota Furia concepts

  9. owl says:

    Bizarrely, an electric Caddy Coupe…

  10. Dean Bigglesworth says:

    I hope the new Corvette will be so much better than the outgoing model that i can pick up a C6 Grand Sport for cheap sometime in the future.

    Realistically though, the Lexus IS. Not something i would have imagined saying a year ago. If it's as good as the new GS is compared to the 5-series, it'll be a credible alternative to the 3-series that might actually be decently reliable. Which means i can consider buying a used one in five years. Assuming Europe gets the 350 this time, currently it's either IS250 or IS-F.

  11. Xedicon says:

    Nothing – the car show scene has been fairly uninteresting for a good while now. Understandable as car companies have been punched in the balls financially but still it doesn't make for a good auto show without true concepts, without "imagineering" if you will.

  12. njhoon says:

    I just started to look at what was offered this morning. I do like the Shelby Focus

  13. Donyas says:

    Mazda6 diesel racer. Can't wait to see it run.

  14. Stu_Rock says:

    Not exactly something that induces a car boner, but the Ford Transit fullsize van is something I'm seriously considering purchasing.

    The rest of the stuff at the show? Forget it.

  15. Tomsk says:

    Five doors. Eight cylinders. Two turbos. Four driven wheels. 552 horsepower.

    The Audi RS7 has me standing in attention.
