At the beginning of every year, the auto show I most look forward to rolls around, NAIAS. The North American International Auto Show has long been a favorite of mine, and when I lived in Michigan, I’d go every year. Unfortunately, I don’t live anywhere near the show this year, so I’ll be reporting from the sidelines. Equally unfortunate, Hooniverse does not have any representation at the show this year. As we’ve been doing for a couple of years now, when we don’t have anyone at the show to represent our interests here in the Hooniverse, we all pitch in with our opinions.
We have new car launches in the form of Ford’s GT, Ford’s Mustang GT350R, Ford’s new Raptor (Ford is pretty much killing it in Detroit this year!), Nissan’s new Titan diesel, Toyota’s new Tacoma, Porsche’s Targa 4GTS, Porsche’s Cayenne Turbo S, Acura’s NSX, Alfa’s 4C Spider, Merc’s C450 AMG Sport, Merc’s GLE, Chevy’s new Volt, Buick’s new
Opel Astra Cabriolet Cascada convertible. Jaguar also debuted their new SUV, in name only. There are also some pretty tempting concept pieces, with Buick bringing the Avenir, Infiniti dropping the Q60 Concept, and Chevy shocking everyone (not really) with the new Bolt EV.
