Keep your eye on the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, where we'll see plenty of exotics including the McLaren 650S and Koenigsegg One:1. Also expect to see other new cars like the Lexus NX, Audi TT, BMW X4 and the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider. Coverage starts on March 4, so be sure to stop by.
If you had to pick a theme for the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, performance would be a pretty logical choice. What else would you suggest, bankruptcy?
Yes, Detroit is coming close to overtaking Buffalo as the most depressing city in the U.S. But at least this year's show is chock-full of exciting vehicles. From concepts to production cars, there certainly wasn't a shortage of interesting metal.
Two little cars that stole the stage at the Tokyo Motor Show earlier this year have made their away across the Pacific to North America.
