Having a gut time! Wunsch you were hier! Okay, our German is schrecklich, but because we speak your language, enjoy our rundown of every live reveal from Day One of the Frankfurt Motor Show after the jump.
What you may have missed: It's a fast-charging, if not hard-charging, 82-hp microvan with an 80-mile range.

What you may have missed: It's a sporty 333-horsepower hatch we're not getting in the U.S., because we simply do not understand certain things.

What you may have missed: The E. D. concept is powered by a three-cylinder diesel, but more importantly, it's apparently made of gentle rising curves and blue light.

What you may have missed: It's an Audi R8 5.2 FSI in chrome, and therefore an abomination.

What you may have missed: An R8 body containing four supremely torquey engines and the hope, if not a promise, that electric cars can be absolutely astounding.

What you may have missed: The replacement for the F430 is either hot or a hot mess, but one way or another it's a new Ferrari with all that implies.

What you may have missed: Ferrari branding has gone so nutzoid that they've actually rebranded this poor Fiat 500. Sadly, that unfortunate mindset may overshadow the niftyness of this 180-horse hatch.

What you may have missed: An R8 without a top or those famous side panels actually looks pretty sleek. However, since it also gained over a quarter ton of weight, it really isn't. We're finding it hard to be too indignant.

What you may have missed: Mini is refusing to be trapped by their own iconic shape and has turned out some surprisingly sleek cars here without deviating from their own design language.

What you may have missed: Err... not much? It's the production version of the littlest BMW soft-utility vehicle. What we wouldn't give for the return of the proper Statßion-Wagen.

What you may have missed: It's a 500-horsepower direct-injected Porsche with no roof! In theory, we love it. In practice...Do they make Just For Men gel in SPF-50?
