Two major international auto shows occurring on the same two days? Phew, let's not do that again... ever. Still, we're pros at auto shows here at Autoblog, so we obsessively covered both the LA Auto Show and Tokyo Motor Show at the same time.

The last of our LA show coverage has gone live, which means it's time for a top-down look at all of the cars and concepts that debuted under a SoCal sun this week. With such major debuts as the 2015 Chevy Colorado, 2015 Subaru WRX and 2015 Porsche Macan, the caliber of cars unveiled in the City of Angels did not disappoint. Which were your favorites? We want to know your duds too, so sound off in Comments.

We've got a few more posts from Japan to share, so stayed tuned for Tokyo's post-show wrapup, and next week we'll publish our Editors' Choices of the best cars from each show.

19Saleen SA-30 Mustang, Camaro and Challenger help celebrate the big 3-0

After 30 years of tuning performance cars and building racecars, Saleen is celebrating its racing heritage with a limited-production car line called SA-30. Based on the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger, Saleen will only build 10 of each SA-30 model at a base price of $95,000.

40Chevy adds sporty RS, stylish Dusk trims to Sonic Sedan

Chevrolet showed off a pair of new Sonic sedans at the LA Auto Show, giving the new RS Sedan and Dusk their official auto show debuts. The RS is kind of a known quantity, adding the same tweaks found on the RS Hatch, including new wheels, a body kit, tweaked suspension and a few racy bits in the interior.

47West coast beaches inspired this 2015 Chevrolet Colorado lifeguard truck

The 2015 Colorado represents Chevrolet's return to the midsize pickup segment in the US, and the automaker wants it to be known for its versatility, which is the reason why the beach patrol vehicle on display at the LA Auto Show was built.

342014 Lexus CT shows new face on each side of the Pacific [w/video]

Earlier today, Lexus officially took the wraps off its 2014 CT 200h at the Guangzhou Motor Show, and now we've gotten a chance to inspect the updated hybrid hatchback right here at the LA Auto Show.

15Aston Martin Vanquish Volante Neiman Marcus makes holiday shopping easy, expensive

For almost 20 years, luxury retailer Neiman Marcus has teamed up with an automaker to offer rare, limited edition automobiles in the pages its famous annual holiday catalogue. The vehicles have run the gamut over the years, but have slowly been eking up in price and exclusivity in the past few years. 2011 saw a Ferrari FF Neiman Marcus, while 2012's car was a McLaren 12C Spider. As we announced a few weeks back, the retailer's 2013 holiday car is the Aston Martin Vanquish Volante.

272014 Fiat 500 1957 Edition takes retro even further

It's been 57 years since the "new" Fiat 500 was introduced in 1957, and to celebrate this iconic inspiration for the current 500, Fiat has revealed a new commemorative model at the LA Auto Show. The 2014 Fiat 500 1957 Edition will only be offered in North America, and it goes on sale next spring.

292014 Land Rover Range Rover Autobiography Black LWB is a $185k mountain-climbing limo

Land Rover is seriously amping up its luxury credentials at the 2013 LA Motor Show, showing off its new Range Rover Autobiography Black. Available only in the off-road manufacturer's new long-wheelbase bodystyle, the Black model of the popular Rangie has a starting price of $185,000. To put that into perspective, a short-wheelbase base model starts at $84,195.

6Mercedes-Benz Concept GLA45 AMG tip-toes around production status

Here is the Mercedes-Benz Concept GLA45 AMG in the flesh. The racing liveried crossover is a near-production-ready preview of what the hotted-up version of Mercedes-Benz's new small CUV will be like when it finally arrives in showrooms.

482014 Hyundai Veloster Turbo R-Spec loses creature comforts, gains sporting equipment [UPDATE]

Hyundai unveiled the Veloster Turbo R-Spec at the LA Auto Show yesterday, and it's touted as a high-performance model without some of the standard features usually found on the Veloster Turbo, such as proximity-key entry with push-button start, premium gauge cluster, side-repeater mirrors, driver's auto-up window, high-gloss interior trim and heated leather seats.

302015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG is a business-class rocket [w/video]

A Rolls-Royce Phantom or a Bentley Mulsanne is great if you want absolute luxury regardless of the cost, but what if you want absolute luxury and manic speed, regardless of cost? Well, Mercedes-Benz will quite happily sell you this – the new, 2015 Mercedes S65 AMG, complete with 621 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque, courtesy of a majestic 6.0-liter biturbocharged V12.

17Shelby GT name returns for 2014 Mustang with up to 624 hp

Earlier in the year, Shelby American unveiled the 1,200-horsepower Shelby 1000 wearing a price tag of $154,995. Now, the Las Vegas-based company is looking to meet the needs of budget-minded performance enthusiasts with the rebirth of the Shelby GT, which made its debut at the LA Auto Show.

512014 Mini Cooper stuns crowd, itself [w/videos]

Remember the Mini Rocketman concept from 2011? While we were really, really hoping for a production version – a properly mini Mini – that never happened. And it won't. But what we are getting is a whole lot of that showcar's styling cues applied to the third-generation Mini Cooper hardtop, a model making its debut here at the LA Auto Show. And while from most angles, the new Mini is as cute as ever, we just can't quite warm up to that face – or that huge front overhang. The car

362014 Hyundai Elantra shows off new trim, engine in LA

Hyundai has issued a mid-cycle refresh for all three body styles of its popular Elantra compact at the 2013 LA Auto Show. As mid-cycle refreshes go, this is a fairly comprehensive one, with some sweeping changes beyond the typical new head- and taillights. The big news is a new 2.0-liter engine and a Sport trim group.

322014 Porsche Panamera Turbo S is a 911 Turbo for the family man

In the event that the Porsche Panamera Turbo's 520 horsepower and 189-mile-per-hour top speed aren't enough to sate the appetite of the speed freak, Porsche has just given the auto show debut to the faster, more powerful Panamera Turbo S.

1172015 Kia K900 proves Korea's other brand has arrived

Kia entered the US market in 1993 with the Sephia, a compact economy car you probably don't (want to) remember, and two decades later it has stepped on stage at the LA Auto Show to unveil a rear-wheel-drive, fullsize luxury sedan called the K900. The achievement here isn't the car itself, its handsome styling or the incredible value it might be (pricing has yet to be announced), but rather that no one thinks it's strange for this company that once sold us the Sephia to compete head-to-head with

422015 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL hit the floor at LA

The middle child of General Motors' trio of truck-based SUVs, the GMC Yukon and long-wheelbase Yukon XL, received their auto show debut at today's 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. Showing off a bigger, bolder look, particularly on its Denali trim, the Yukon sports prominent chrome grille instantly identifies GMC's new top-end SUV.

11Mercedes SLS AMG GT Final Edition marks end of AMG's first sports car

This is one of those moments when we hate to see it leave, but we love to see it go. The subject at hand is, of course, the brilliantly brutal Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, the first vehicle developed fully by AMG. Last week we learned that Mercedes will cease to produce the company's flagship sportscar and send it off with a limited-edition model, the SLS AMG GT Final Edition. Mercedes will only produce 350 units, including coupe and roadster variants, and once that run is over, it'll be over for good

612015 Cadillac Escalade blings its way into LA

The new Cadillac Escalade sauntered out onto the Los Angeles Auto Show stage, showing off its new familial face and redesigned interior. That exterior, with its slim, wrap-over headlights and tall, vertical taillights (both made up of LEDs) is a subtle but significant departure from the past styling of General Motors' flagship SUV.

132014 Fiat 500C GQ Edition mans up [w/videos]

Fiat dealers recently welcomed the five-door 500L into their 'studios' as a much-needed second model line, but franchisees are still clamoring for additional new model ranges as most struggle to reach profitability. There's more in the pipeline for the reborn brand, but in the meantime, Fiat continues to rely on special editions of existing products to drum up interest, in this case, the just-introduced 2014 500C GQ Edition. Meant in part to extend appeal of the tiny 500C to more male shoppers,

422015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban are ready to haul

The Chevrolet Suburban and its short-wheelbase cousin, the Tahoe, have both seen significant redesigns, which are being shown off live at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. The new looks, with the dual-tiered headlights and bold grille aren't a radical departure from the current Suburban/Tahoe's design. Accompanied by an overhauled interior, the new models are a solid improvement over the previous models.

522015 Jaguar F-Type Coupe is a seriously pretty kitty

The F-Type roadster is a beautiful car, but if we're honest, the coupe might be even more so. The hard top creates a smooth, uninterrupted line from the windshield all the way back to the rear of the car, the kinked-up rear-quarter windows are a nice touch and, overall, the design looks more organic than the roadster.

      My take on the LA show: will there be an "Obsessively" for the Tokyo Show as well? Saleen Mustang/Camaro/Challenger-Does it seem wrong to anyone else that Saleen is doing Camaros and Challengers now? Chevy Sonic Sedan RS-Why AB why, did you waste time reporting on this? Life Guard Colorado-Pleas tell me David Hasselhoff was there Lexus CT-wake me when it's over AM Vanquish Volante Neiman Marcus-A sex machine by any other name,,, Fiat 500 1957-I think it looks great Range Rover LWB-looks comically huge, still, better than an Escalade MB GLA45 AMG-A bridge too far? Hyundai Veloster Turbo R-Spec- I just don't like this car MB S65 AMG-For those who think everything is not enough Shelby GT-I'm not sure what to think,base GT not worth it, SC version seems better but has this once proud company lost it's way? Mini Cooper-A victim of the times we live in. Can't really be a mini because we're just to huge and fat, looks good though Hyundai Elantra- Mid life refresh Panamera Turbo S-It's just so ugly still, I don't care how good it is Kia K900-Stil have a hard time seeing this as a luxury branded car but good for them, high hopes GMC Yukon/XL-The odd middle ground MB SLS AMG GT Final-Good run, can't wait to see whats next Cadillac Escalade-You're a rapper or just can't afford a Range Rover Fiat 500 GQ-If you want a 500, just buy the cheapest most basic one with a manual transmission Chevy Tahoe/Suburban-Should make FBI/CIA happy Jag F-Type Coupe-One of, if not the, star of the show. Better looking that AM Vantage V8? Nissan Sentra Nismo Concept-Now this is more like it Hyundai Tuscon Fuel Cell-I applaud the effort, you have to start somewhere Nissan Juke Nismo RS-I just can't warm to this, seems like wasted effort better spent elsewhere Acura RLX Hybrid-Knew the old one well, didn't like it, is this any better? BMW 4 Series Convertible-"The ultimate driving machine" Not any more Dodge 100 Anniversary cars-Look good, don't really care MB AMG Vision GT-Stunning. Produce 13 of them, keep one in house sell the rest for $2 Million a piece Honda FCEV-Is the future here, maybe? Youabian Puma-Ummmm, WTF? Jeep Wrangler Willys-Looks great and I would never buy one 911 Turbo Cab-I just can't help but think this is just 1 of 48 different versions of the 911 SRT Viper Carbon-looks sensational, still a Viper though Subaru Legacy Concept-Honda and Toyota were given the moniker of Japanese designed auto conservatism, but I think Subaru deserves the title. Not holding my breath waiting for this one Chevy Colorado-This truck will succeed or fail totally on price. Too close to it's big brothers and say good bye. This is one to keep an eye on Subaru WRX-I was hoping for a bit more, not disappointed but just wanting a bit more Lincoln MKC-Looks good and I hope it does well, still hate the nomenclature Ford Edge Concept-Not sure how well it sells and this is a minor refresh with some new toys

      I have to admit the auto makers put out a very good show this year in the city of angeles. I don't normally do this, but this is my list of vehicles that I feel are worth mentioning, you can agree to disagree or share in your thoughts. Number 1. Nissan Juke nismo Rs very nice but if it was up to me, I would have taken it up to an even 300hp for greater power. Number 2. Nissan Sentra nismo, they need to produce it and offer it here in the u.s. Number 3. Chevy Colorado, this is a good looking truck compared to their silverado I can't believe chevy decided to bring back that ugly split head lamp design. Number 4. Porsche Panamara Turbo S. This time its your dad's get your kids to soccor practice in a flash and not your mom this time And number 5. Got to go with the Neiman Marcus Aston Martin Vanguish convertible, what a great way to say Merry Christmas. Well those are my top five from the LA auto show.

        And I thought this year's show was pretty lame compared to those past. And it was certainly under attended.

      Wow, I thought for sure VW was going to have another concept van. Oh well at least we got another concept CrossBlue and new Up iterations... /sarcasm.

      I thought VW and Audi were supposed to show off vehicles at LA but you guys have none from either. I did see some stuff from Audi and VW on their Facebook pages but nothing from the press.
