A Few Recent Concept Cars that May Have Slipped Though the Cracks

As I said when I wrote about the 2007 Saab Aero X concept car, I was recently combing through old pictures taken over the past few years from various auto shows, mostly from the big one in Los Angeles and its little brother in Orange County. I am especially interested in how concept cars either preview design language that will influence future cars or how preproduction models change by the time they hit showroom floors. Here are a few autos that were never sold or played a significant role in inspiring future product.

Some newer concept cars were featured in the “Live From the Los Angeles Auto Show” feature from a couple months back.

About Cameron Rogers

Cameron Rogers is the founder and lead writer at Downshift Autos, the only automotive blog on the Internet*. Born in the back of an AMC Gremlin, Cameron vowed to never let this extraordinarily embarrassing detail define him, so help him God. He drives a GTI but absolutely will not shut up about it if somebody asks. He will not hesitate to let people know that no, they shouldn't get a Porsche 911 when a Morgan 3 Wheeler is so obviously the superior choice. He is obsessed with the seats of a Carrera GT and the steering wheel of a Fisker Karma. He once sat in the driver's seat of a Tesla Model S, his greatest accomplishment to date. He is just now realizing that writing an autobiography, however miniscule, in the third person is odd and unnerving. *As of this writing, Cameron has been informed that there are, in fact, many websites and blogs centered around cars and car culture. He regrets his grievous error.
