The Los Angeles Auto Show has quickly become one of the most anticipated auto shows on the circuit, with many automakers making global debuts. Nine cars are expected to be shown off for the first time at this years LA show, including the Porsche Macan, MINI Cooper and Subaru WRX. Connected Cars are also becoming a hot topic at the LA show, and a whole day is dedicated to new driving technology.
Geographically speaking, the Frankfurt Motor Show is one of the biggest auto shows in the world. Aside from being a venue to wear holes through countless pairs of sweaty dress socks, it's a place where a venerable collection of sheet metal is sure to arrive every two years.
If the 2013 show proves anything, it's that auto manufacturers are almost unanimously in love with two things: concept cars and hybrid drivetrains. Years ago, that idea would have been more depressing than drinking cheap drip coffee in Seattle.
Thankfully, hybrid drivetrains are much more than a way to save on gas these days. They're quickly being adapted to performance applications; sometimes with blistering results. Click through AutoGuide.com's top 10 cars of the show to see.
