We're officially getting pumped up for the New York Auto Show. Bomb #1 dropped yesterday as the Infiniti G37 embargo got vaporized like the White House in Independence Day. The runup to the show is in full effect, and that's always a fun time. Today we got word that the gang at GM is planning world premieres of one concept and six production vehicles. Those come in addition to the US debut of Saab's E100 concept and a parade of other showpieces like the new CTS, the Camaro Convertible, the Saturn Astra, and other fun stuff.

The concept is described as a "closely guarded world concept," which makes us very curious bloggers, indeed. On the production side, you can pretty much pencil in the two Buick Supers, and we know what two of the others are (check back a week from today), but on the last two, we're still in the dark, though we can make very educated guesses on them. In any case, a good time is sure to be had by all, and we've got a big team standing by to bring you all the news as it rolls off Bob Lutz's tongue.

      T'would be awesome if they somehow showed the Camaro production coupe.

      Ryan,

      Completely agree! Look at where Apple is now, and their turn-around is far from over!

      My money is on the HHR SS as one of the 6

      My fearless predictions, based on recent buzz and things we should be seeing about now but haven't seen yet:

      1. Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid
      2. Chevrolet Cobalt MCE (due)
      3. Pontiac G8 - production (making the Chicago car a concept lets them have two intros)
      4. Buick LaCrosse Super
      5. Buick Lucernce Super
      6. Cadillac STS MCE
      7. Cadillac V12 sedan concept (Lutz paved way when he divulged the existence of such a car today)

      Also possible: performance variants of Aura, HHR; CTS coupe concept

      Won't see Saabs because they'd be introduced in Europe, and won't see Impala because too big and mid-market for New York.

      I'll go ahead and start the guessing... Of the four production vehicles (not including the two buicks)here is my list:
      1. Updated Cadillac STS
      2. Facelifted Saab 9-5
      3. Pontiac Vibe replacement
      4. New Chevy Aveo Hatch?

      4 that list would be most disappointing.

      I'm not generally a GM fan but right now they are making some VERY attractive cars. I think after many years they finally figured out that they can't design by committee. I think at the moment they are the company that I am watching the closest for new and exiting models. Everybody else is mostly just renovating.

      Password is "facelift"

      Here's a link to the H3 Alpha and 2008 Hummer H2.

      Prediction: Saab FINALLY adds ALL WHEEL DRIVE!!!!
      • 7 Years Ago
      1 of them is going to be the 08 corvette with an LS3 and ungraded interior, some other tweaks too...

      To #24 (Justin) Apple does make a Mac (2 in fact) that costs less than a $1000. The Mac mini at $599 and an iMac for $999. Thanks for showing your ignorance. All show because what Microsoft is all "Wow"?

      Of course what does Apple have to do with this post is beyond me.

      GM will get through all of this. The refocus on product continues to drive a turnaround.

      My prediction besides the 2 Buicks we already know will be there:
      Pontiac Vibe (updated)
      HHR Sport (Remember they have stopped the SS insanity)
      Cadillac CTS Coupe (the concept)
      Saab 9-3 (new facelift)
      Chevy Aveo5 (new hatchback to match the latest refresh)

      Sounds like New York could be jockeying for status as the second most important show in the U.S. Chicago was underwhelming. Sorry I won't see you guys this time around. I look forward to your coverage of the intros.
