    Only in Los Angeles?

    I just came back from the LA Auto Show and was wondering...

    The Porsche exhibit is always the best of any car company (even Nick agreed). As long as I can remember, Porsche has always had a separate hall where it controls the sound, the lighting, the mood. Its always an event to see it. It was by far the most crowded display of any car manufacturer. Every car model except for the Carrera GT you could touch and most of the cars you could sit in. They even had a 997S with some exclusive options that I was unaware of. The sound of a 997/S circling the display was nice as was the video board as you first enter.

    I know in the past Los Angeles and Southern California has/was Porsche largest market, do they do this for other auto shows? I may be wrong, but I can only remember one year in the last 30 years that they did not occupy this hall. It was probably the most expensive exhibit of any manufacturer. Porsche was the only car manufacturer that had its own hall, every other manufacturer was either on the two main floors or a smaller one. Just wondering...

    Re: Only in Los Angeles?

    Been to both the UK and Paris shows, and whilst Porsche had a pretty nice stand at both they didn't have a hall by any means - even when it was teh Boxster (987) launch at Paris. Nice VIP area at the UK show for invited owners though, a place where you could escape the throng of the show and grap a coffee and see the cars more easily than out with the masses...

    We were there today, too. Clearly the best thought out display at the show--designed with a real sense of drama. While we were there Steven Spielberg, Katzenberg and Tom Cruise came through. At the Carrera GT we overheard Katzenberg say, "Now, THAT'S a car."
