Philly Auto Show 2010 – Cars you will probably never drive

February 11, 2010

As promised, here begins some coverage of the Philadelphia Internation Automobile show, 2010 edition!  We’ll be having a few articles about the show, including an editorial as well as a write-up by Paul on the cars that this website is interested in.  I intend to start the series with a small article of some of the cars that were there which average guys like us will most likely never drive.

Ahhh yes, the supercar flavor of the year from 2009, the Nissan GT-R.  Lots of power, tons of grip, tons of gadgets…although these days I’m happier than ever that my car has a lot of simple mechanical parts as opposed to electronically controlled everything.

Next up we have what may have been the “looks” car of the show for me this year, the Cadillac CTS-V coupe:

I have only ever owned 1 single solitary 4 door car in my life, and these pictures are why.  Coupes are just so much more beautiful.

Chevy busted out their Stingray Corvette concept car.  It certainly is something to look at, but who wants to put money on that making it to production in its current form?

Cadillac also brought an other-worldly car with them, although this one looks more like a 1950’s version of other-worldly.

This is just opinion, but I think that Audi right now has the best looking overall lineup of cars of any automaker.  Their supercar, the R8, is included in that claim;

I guess I should actually say that Audi has the best looking lineup of cars for any ordinary automaker.  Aston Martin makes the most beautiful cars in the world.

Here’s a look at probably the only side of a Porsche 911 GT3 you would ever see on the road:

And finally, the Tesla Roadster, which definitely is not a car I will ever find myself in.  Some variation of an electric sports car is probably in my future, when such things are more common, but not this one.  Very cool car though.

Stay tuned, more from Philly to come!
