Chicago Auto Show 2017

Visited the Auto Show this morning, very disappointing display from BMW this year, all they had were 6 electric vehicles...and a sign.

Rest of the show was great. Probably the most impressive Porsche display I have seen in recent memory, nice showing from Audi and MB, as well as the other usual suspects. The MB mountain is cool where you get to off-road in a G-Wagon. And make sure not to miss the $109k F150 Shelby.

Was one of the worst displays of any auto manufacturer there. Heck, Alfa Romeo had more cars and about twice the space. It felt like a dying car brand.

edit and the CTS-V at $109K was brutal. As in brutal expensive for such a horrific interior.

Yes it felt like BMW- Oh how the mighty have fallen. MB display was full of gorgeous cars, and as mentioned Alfa Romeo showed up BMW big time. Over all, future and concept cars were absent from nearly all manufactures. The only thing I'm exited to drive is a Ford, you read that right I signed up at the Ford display for a offer to go test drive and they pay me a $50 gift card. Probably a catch or redeemable to the Ford service/parts dept but hey dare to dream.
