2013 Los Angeles Auto Show

The annual Los Angeles Auto Show marks the unofficial beginning of the auto show season, which comes to a conclusion about four months later in Manhattan at the New York Auto Show.

The 2013 show opens to the press Nov. 20, while the public is offered access between Nov. 22 and Dec. 1. At the exhibition, automakers fully reveal concepts and new models whose details have been leaked slowly but whose final appearance has been kept closely guarded. This year, the Porsche Macan, Jaguar F-Type coupe, BMW 4-Series and Chevrolet Colorado are among the most anticipated vehicles.
