The L.A. Auto Show
A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend the famous L.A. Auto Show! The experience was fantastic, seeing all of the car giants compete with one another with new cars that push the brink of what we all believed was technologically possible.
Companies like Porsche are trying to “Recall to Life” their supercar/hypercar name and reputation. Porsche came out with the blisteringly fast 918 Spyder, which at the moment is the fastest car in the world. As they have successfully renewed their reputation for the ability to make supercars that rival (and even beat) Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and the almighty Bugatti Veyron, Porsche is now expected to have an increase in sales as a result of having such a successful year. I’ve taken pictures from the show, so enjoy!
