Detroit Auto Show: Photo Gallery Inspiration

We’ve begun to assemble a photo gallery from the show. There are 300+ images currently and we’ve got a few more to add. At this point, the slide show is a nice virtual walk through Cobo Hall.

For this last post about the show, we’d like to spotlight Volkswagen’s stand design and concept car they unveiled. Of all the manufacturers exhibiting, VW really stood out and looked seemingly unshaken by the economic downturn. The display stand was updated this year and while simpler in design, it still looked fresh and bright. The company constructed a large stage which featured the Blue Sport convertible concept car which debuted in Detroit. The Blue Sport itself seemed to radiate an optimistic and clean design language based on simple shapes and balanced proportions.
