What Would Make Auto Shows More Fun?

Illustration for article titled What Would Make Auto Shows More Fun?

The world's automotive media is on hand for the Detroit Auto Show, but the general public's interest in attending auto shows has been declining. What do you think would make these events more interesting and appealing?


The Internet can send the news and visuals of faraway auto shows to anyone with a server connection (and pretty damn well, too), making it somewhat unnecessary to go there in person. What would make it necessary? Letting you buy the car right there. From the floor. If you want to pay full-price for the Subaru BRZ you've been drooling over on the floor they should take your money and let you take a photo with the booth professional.

What improvements do you want to see at the next auto show you attend?
