Uh...guys...are you forgetting the 620-horsepower Corvette over there?

Most Shocking Moment: Detroit Show Is Right-Sized
So I’m the only person who missed bull-on-bull action on Jefferson Avenue . To my great surprise, the shorter Detroit show seemed right-sized. With fewer global introductions and a few absent automakers (Porsche is one), the day and a half of media introductions didn’t feel overwhelming. The shock? My feet are still attached after hours of walking in dress shoes.

Most Predictable Moment: Cars We Totally Expected
Can’t decide, it’s either the introduction of the Toyota Venza or the Cadillac CT Coupe. One’s much prettier than the other, one’s more clearly destined for big sales numbers — and both, we could have told you a year ago they were in the planning stages.

2008 Prediction
I can’t say much more than, watch this space closely.
