The Detroit show has always been the biggest in the country, but there’s been a spark in this year’s show (taking place right now) that hasn’t been seen in far too long. More than 5,000 journalists from 50+ countries came to attend Press Preview at NAIAS 2012 and witness the unveiling of nearly 40 never before seen products, as well as a number of North American introductions. The Detroit story is forthcoming. In the meantime, LA Car’s Mark Dapoz presents 48 scenes from the press preview.
