This year’s Detroit auto show was awash in concept cars; they outnumbered new production cars almost two to one. Cars.com’s David Thomas, Mike Hanley and Joe Wiesenfelder take the automotive visions and boil down what wowed and what fizzled.
David Thomas: Winner
This was the only true “surprise” of the show, and it looked pretty darn good in person. The back end needs some work, but besides that this could and should be rolling through your cul-de-sac in short order.
Mike Hanley: Winner
I agree with Dave that the rear-quarter of the coupe could be better shaped, and it wouldn’t hurt to make that part of the car a little smaller, too. On the whole, however, the car is a looker and it gets my nod.
Joe Wiesenfelder: Winner
I like it overall, though the tail definitely goes too far. I’m confident they’ll build the thing. The CTS sedan is so strong, GM would be foolish not to spread it around.
