The 2014 edition of the Los Angeles Auto Show came upon us yet again and, for the first time in quite a while, we decided to take a look at what the OE world had to offer. We came away a bit underwhelmed. There was nothing revolutionary. Merely evolutionary at best. Nothing blew us away, really. All signs point to yet another year of dull vehicles. Regardless, we thought these following vehicles have some ability to quicken the pulse. Even if just a little bit.
(Incidentally, all photos were taken with a Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Image quality is pretty awesome, especially considering it’s just a smartphone)
The Ford Transit Connect – we LOVE this utilitarian vehicle
The new Ford Explorer – looks very Range Rover-esque; we like it
The redesigned Ford Edge – yet another attractive small SUV from Detroit
The first Shelby without Carroll Shelby
The front end of the revised Mustang looks awfully familiar. Gotta say it shares design DNA with the Fusion. And several Aston Martins. And the Nissan GT-R. And the Dodge SRT Hellcat. And the Mazda 6.
This was one of only two vehicles on display within the Mitsubishi booth – are we close to seeing this OE leaving the US market?
Looks nice and all but is it worth $64,000? For a Dodge?
Some sort of hybrid / electric car based on the Delta Wing racing car – you won’t see us driving this thing
Yet another “Nismo” version of the Z – perhaps they should add some power to the damned thing instead of prettying it up all the time
Can’t get enough of the mighty Porsche 918
Porsche made a lot of noise over the “new” 911 GTS – frankly, it looks the same to us
An offering from Morgan – always a little “different”
The VW GTI Roadster Concept – definitely worth of Gran Turismo
This looks very worthy of a RevdCars evaluation
Didn’t see anything of interest in the Mazda booth except this…
Look at the rear “spoiler” of the new Vette convertible – it’s a giant Gurney flap
The Infiniti Q80 concept was curvaceous
Wow… Lexus outdid themselves with this ugly beast
We ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Jaguar F Type
Something straight outta Tron in the Toyota booth
Who needs the Lexus LF-A when you have the Toyota FT-1? We sincerely hope this is the foundation for the new Supra
