Show<br>Date posted: 12-06-2005 <p>AUBURN HILLS  Inside Line has learned that Volkswagen of America will hold the worldwide debut of a new California-designed concept vehicle at January's Los Angeles auto show.<p>"I can only say it's a 'vehicle,'" said VW spokesman Tony Fouladpour. "<B>It doesn't necessarily have four wheels and it may go into production.</B>"<p>Without giving any more details, Fouladpour said the concept is not a motorcycle.<p>The new concept is a product of VW's advanced design studio in Simi Valley. The California concept will also be shown at the Detroit auto show.<p>"L.A. will be a bigger show for us than Detroit," Fouladpour said. "We get a bigger share of the voice mediawise in Los Angeles and besides, L.A. is such a VW city."<p>What this means to you: VW's teaser about its newest concept lends itself to all kinds of speculation. How about a three-wheeled Beetle with a big key in the back?</TD></TR></TABLE>

Maybe except most of those debuts should not exactly be termed debuts since they've already been unveiled at other autoshows.<p>As for NA shows, NAIAS generally draws the most world premieres and Chicago geneally is the largest, as far as show space is concerned.

its autospies, but they usually have a pretty decent photo gallery, as it is the only decent thing that comes out of that website.<br><A HREF="http://shows.autospies.com/gallery/shows.asp?manu=&cat=&thisPage=1&galleryId=34" TARGET="_blank">http://shows.autospies.com/gal...Id=34</A>

This was a good move from every angle you look at. In some ways, I feel NAIAS is taking some of the hype form LA just because they're generally so close to each other, given detroit has been a significant auto show for years now. Bottom line, whether the November Auto Show in LA become larger or not, it will have its own floor and reconigition.

i think the 2007 LA Auto Show (the one in November 2006) is going to be very successful for them. The first one especially will get a lot of debuts i think because there will be so much hype surrounding the date change and theme change...it is a new chapter, and the media will cover it a lot<p>the la show will finally be as competitve as naias...i'm sure a lot of debuts set for detroit will be moved up<p>btw...knihc2008<p>what is that drawing in your sig? what car?

as it says on the sig, it's my speedcell concept for the newest automotive design contest.<p>anyway, i went to the show today. it's actually been moved to december 1-10 for this year, not november. and it was a pretty boring show this year.

the reason it's in december this year was because they said there was a conflict with some other event, but starting in 2007, it will be at it's normal november time
