Saturday, November 28th, 2009

The 52nd Annual San Francisco International Auto Show continues ’til Wednesday, December 2nd down at Moscone Center. It’s eight bucks, why not check it out?

The joint is sponsored by the San Francisco Chronicle – here are their photos from Wednesday night. And here’s an annotated gallery from Ryan W over at Yelp. And here are the babes.

A family decision – to buy the new Lexus hybrid or not. Click to expand:

A passionate pink Smart Car Four-Two Passion:


The Scions look like Matchbox Cars, right?


A fabled four-door Porsche Panamera – the California Highway Patrol must have been high on the waiting list


Hands up – who here has a Lexus? The SEMA boys painted this IS350 using the flattest finish known to Man. That’s not primer, it’s paint:

A woody Mini Clubman station wagon, of course:


Honda makes jets? Sort of, with a little help from GE. Buy your HondaJet HA420 starting in 2011:

And that’s your San Francisco International Car Show for 2009.

4-Door Porsche Panamera Caught on the Streets of San Francisco

Monday, October 20th, 2008

Oh no! Look out BMW Gran Turismo, the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG, Aston Martin Rapide, Lamborghini Estoque, Maserati Quattroporte, Bentley Continental GT, and Ferrari 612 Scaglietti. ‘Cause here comes der neu 4-door Porsche Panamera!

You see, they need to find out if such a fine vehicle can handle the steep streets of San Francisco. Fair enough, but doesn’t the body look all stretched out, like a 1978 “pregnant cow” Nissan / Datsun 280Z / Fairlady 2+2?

No front license plate, which is required in California. Minus 5 points, Gryffindor House.

It sure looks fast though.
