See the new models in action before next year's Detroit show
16 December 2008

Last year's Detroit motor show featured 58 launches and the 2009 event, which runs for a week from 17 Jan, should match that.

Here is a preview of some of the new models that are expected to be unveiled.

New Volvo S60

New BMW Z4

New Mazda 3

Porsche Panamera

This gives me an idea.

As we can't all get to Detroit for the motor show, why don't they create a virtual on line motor show for the rest of us? Stands and layouts could be exactly as they are in real life, and as you enter each section, the manufacturer supplied information could be accessed.

Some may argue that is all you do with the various manufacturers web sites, but why not have it all in one place?

You could even have a virtual crappy hamburger stall and overpriced bar!



It's all about the twisties........

Check out that Panamera. Is it me or does it barely fit on standard sized roads? Or does Porsche Assistance run to Police escorts when required?

[/quote]The burgers at Detroit are very good, and the beer very reasonable.

Waooo. The sound of the Z4!

With a manual gearbox, it would be even better for the record!

I'd buy it only for its music :-) It's like italian pastas with a belgian beer (sorry for Detroit)!

Long life the king straight 6 :-)))))

I'd like the driver of Porsche Panamacanal to drive me around Cornwall next summer. He drives that mountain road with inches to spare with the cliff face. It does looks like a big cockroach! I cant wait to see the Porsche sit next to Lambo Estoque. Mazda 3. They must've started at the front then the credit crunch made then give up updating from there onwards. Volvo - Back doors are cool! Z4- I made remark elsewhere that the grill reminded me of Riley Elf. Actually seeing it in motion the frontal area reminds me of the Chrysler coupe of few years back, name of which escapes me
