Sorry for making an empty thread but the show is less than 2 months away and we dont have any info posted at all! Does anyone have a list of all the new cars making their appearance there?<p>Ford will have the facelifted Focus, the nicknamed X-Max (according to Ford forums) and a concept of the next Fiesta (according to AutoExpress)<p>BMW will have their M3 line-up and the 1-Series Coupe (perhaps a Convertible as well?)<p>Opel should present the Insignia<p>Renault will present the Laguna<p>

Jaguar XF will have it's world premier at Frankfurt <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>And also, Land Rover is rumoured to be showing a new Hybrid concept car at Frankfurt. I think this is based upon the Freelander 2 from what i read in the past. But i'm sure how true this rumour is.. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/nixweiss.gif" BORDER="0">

Also im not sure about the Mazda6, seems a bit early and given that Europe is not its biggest market i think it would be wiser for Mazda to unveil it at a NA show

is it possible to debut 8 models in 15 minutes, especially with 2 completely new and never before seen ones?

08-05-2007, 01:21 AM
In the link i posted it mentions<p><I>"The Volkswagen press conference will be held on 11th September at 11.00 a.m. in Hall 3.0, on the Volkswagen stand.<B> Dr. Martin Winterkorn will present the new Tiguan there, as well as the prototype of a future compact model</B>."</I><br>source: worldcarfans.com<p>So theyll only be revealing the Tiguan and the prototype in that 30mins

08-05-2007, 08:40 AM
oh so i guess the bluetec models will just be on the stand and you go see them for yourself

08-05-2007, 11:43 AM
Absolutely no mention of the Alfa Romeo 149, Junior or the 169 and Kamal SUV? Not even a concept? What about the GTA version of the 159? There must be something given that they also have a press conference right?

08-22-2007, 06:01 PM
A new Mercedes F-Concept is said to be released. Read that in Autozeitung and found it here, too: <A HREF="http://www.zercustoms.com/news/Mercedes-F700.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.zercustoms.com/news/Mercedes-F700.html</A><br>Will be a luxury car with interesting diesel/petrol engine, 4 cylinders and 235 hp.<p><br>Autozeitung also says BMW X6 will debut in Frankfurt. But I heard that they will possibly only show a 2-door concept of the car there.<p>Any new reliable information on this?<br>I hope I'll be there to see it myself then. Spyshots do look promising.

08-22-2007, 06:07 PM
hmm the mb concept could be an E class in disguise or the s class since I know mb has been testing a hybrid S.

against the wall
08-22-2007, 08:41 PM
yeah i think i read somewhere the F700 is S-class based and features the new DiesOtto engine.<p>on a general frankfrut note im really anxious for the new special edition lambo that is supposed to feature all new sheetmetal except for murci doors and mirrors, the coolest instrument panel ever seen or something, and a style that makes it a lambo teen boys hang on their walls.

the future

09-04-2007, 02:49 PM
dunno if it's directly related....well it kinda is...<p>anyone knows if the "trade days" are open to everyone (who's willing to pay 40euros...)?<p>and what's the point of these two days, if the press days are on the 11-12 (the trade days are 13-14)<p><br>thanx :P

There were many fine debuts and unveilings today (9/11/07) in Frankfurt.<br>Are there any more/additional we can expect for Wednesday, 9/12?

09-13-2007, 11:25 PM
I know this doesnt qualify for the New Car Section, but I was hoping mods could sort these into the appropriate threads. Some great shots that I havent seen on the net yet like the C63 which I couldnt find anywhere else! I'm too tired now but I've sorted a few into the appropriate threads, maybe mods could finish it. enjoy!<p><A HREF="http://www.caradvice.com.au/5940/frankfurt-motor-show-gallery" TARGET="_blank">http://www.caradvice.com.au/59...llery</A>/

that's not the mods job to do..if you find pictures..take them out yourself and post them up...<p>i tell you...people are lazy in this world :P

Also, I done my best, I posted in nearly 15 threads. I was just hoping the mods or ANYONE could finish it and then have the thread deleted. I dont think I was being lazy...<p>The only reason I bothered in the first place was because there are shots on that link that havent surfaced anywhere else on the net, such as the C63 etc.

09-14-2007, 02:37 AM
Come on, give the guy a break. I prefer having this thread rather than not having the pics at all. Thanks Hks786.

09-14-2007, 03:07 AM
no problem bro

09-14-2007, 03:09 AM
Just moved it here - seems more appropriate. Thanks for the link.

Ramadhan Mubarak my man. :D Hope it's been going alright for you. :)<p>Also, i'm not happy there was nothing from Alfa Romeo bar the Unica range. I was hoping a Junior concept, if i'm perfectly honest. <p>Also, what happened to Project Kimber's AC Ace?!? I'm kinda annoyed about the fact there was nothing on either of these 2 cars... This will probably lead to me getting a Fiat 500 over the other 2 cars. Unfortunate.
