The Geneva Motor Show wrapped up last week and, as usual, it was one of the most interesting and exciting auto shows of the year. You’ve read and watched all of our takes on stuff like the new Toyota Supra, electric Porsches and the born-again Lagonda brand, but now it’s time to hear from everyone’s favorite…
Being from Detroit, I’m accustomed to dealing with unbearably cold winters. But I understand how annoying it can be for auto journalists and industry folks who have to travel every January to the frozen tundra of Michigan for the North American International Auto Show. Well, in what amounts to at least a temporary…
The what isn’t new: That auto shows, as we have come to know them, are dying. The who, however, is: Mercedes-Benz is the latest automaker that might elect not to show up at next year’s Detroit Auto Show.
I’m in an unusually good mood today and it’s not because I got to pet my neighbor’s dogs in the elevator this morning. It’s because the 2017 Geneva Motor Show is going on and it is hands down my favorite show. Here’s why.
The annual New York Motorcycle Show is on right now, and most of the major bike brands are showing off their latest and greatest vehicles for you to fart on and peep at over at the Javits Center. Take a couple laps around the floor with us and check out some favorites!
You think it’s some senior vice president in a suit and comfortable wing-tips who reads a teleprompter for 20 minutes? No, hell no. The real heroes of auto shows are the ladies who wear stiletto heels for hours on end and still have the grace to smile at you when you ask them a question when all you really want is…
The age when automakers would set aside several weeks seven or eight times a year for a huge trade show at a convention center to unveil the Lincoln Continental or Hyundai Tucson or whatever before a scrum of enthralled reporters appears to be on the way out. In fact, the Los Angeles Auto Show is evolving in an…
Hello, ladies and gentlemen of Jalopnik, and welcome to this week’s Letters to Doug, which involves me signing into my e-mail and trudging through constant Tai Lopez motivational e-mails in order to find something worth posting.
The best part of every auto show is the corporate espionage, and no show in America has more of it than Detroit.
We somehow made it to day two with out getting kicked out of the Frankfurt Motor Show despite what I can only describe as a Lederhosen/Wienerschnitzel incident at the BMW party. Bill Caswell would have been proud. (Bill Caswell probably would have gotten us kicked out had he been there, but that’s another thing…
At every major auto show, fancy concept cars are shown on fancy displays, next to fancy booth professionals, covered in fancy lighting. Sometimes they’re a look into the cars of tomorrow, but sometimes — sadly — they’re just eye candy.
Before the Internet, an auto show was really the only way to learn about all the new cars hitting the showrooms. Auto shows are a great PR platform for manufactures and journalists love them because they might get some free booze, but are they really valuable to your average car buyer?
The Shanghai Auto Show will do without booth pros this year. Here's why.
Good news, everyone: I've decided to devote today's column to the most outdated, obsolete, antiquated relic of the entire automotive industry.
The 2015 Detroit Auto Show press days are over, and the bars full of free coffee and booze scattered around Cobo Hall have been packed away. Here are the people of the event who caught my eye.
Alright, alright. I will concede that this Detroit show proved me wrong, that it was one of the best in recent memory—simply because it was full of surprises, or at least the kind of surprise that happens when you stop paying attention and forego the rumors.
