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

Robert Emslie January 18, 2013 Hooniverse Asks 47 Comments

 

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!

      Yep, there's something very reminiscent of the '84 Civic in that, which I'm not sure gives me a car boner, but it does make me extremely nostalgic.

      Ooh, that's nice.

      Of course what I really want is for Honda to bring back a Prelude with pop-up lights and four wheel steer. But that aintaboutahappen.

    • MVEilenstein

      Is the car that small, or are the doors that long? Either way, looks good.

    • Preludacris

      I'm Canadian and I still think this concept deserves more exposure. It would be a step in the right direction for Honda.

      • Vavon

        Hihihi! You got it!

      • Devin

        If they make it, I'll go directly to my nearest Honda dealer and possibly buy one if it drives nicely and has a proper transmission.

  • wolfie

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

    • danleym

      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.

      • MVEilenstein

        Except that I WOULD drive a car only my grandparents would drive.

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

    Corvette of course.

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

  • $kaycog
    • http://o2richenvironment.blogspot.com/ engineerd

      That was my answer. I love almost everything about that concept.

      • $kaycog

        We still got it!

    • Devin

      At first I didn't like it, but it's growing on me every time I see another picture.

      More importantly, I appreciate how Ford is totally screwing with GM. "You've got a new truck on display? How nice, so do we, and ours is cooler, so there."

      • $kaycog

        I love the screwing with GM too.

    • SSurfer321

      I'm very interested to learn moar about the powertrain…upgraded EcoBoost?

  • Number_Six

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

  • http://hooniverse.com/ Tanshanomi

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

    • danleym

      I could have benefited from a proper rundown, too, but I guess I could just google it and come up with a pretty good list. Problem is, I don't really care enough about what new cars are coming out to expend the small amount of effort it would take to do that.

      • http://hooniverse.com/ Tanshanomi

        Yes, that was my intended point, too.

        • danleym

          Sorry. I'm really bad at reading between the lines. Ask my wife.

  • JayP2112
    • Remdog

      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.

      • JayP2112

        Definitely a surprise. Autoblog has an interview with Lutz- interesting.

  • rpdred6

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

  • owl

    Bizarrely, an electric Caddy Coupe…

  • Dean Bigglesworth

    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.

  • Xedicon

    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.

  • njhoon

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

  • Donyas

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

  • http://www.google.com/search?q=stuart+schmitt Stu_Rock

    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.

    • Van_Sarockin

      Maybe if it can fit my waterbed.

      • http://www.google.com/search?q=stuart+schmitt Stu_Rock

        Van_Sasloshin?

        • Van_Sarockin

          Better not be my engine knockin'!

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

    The Audi RS7 has me standing in attention.

    Heya just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.

    and both show the same outcome.
