Automakers from around the world had a big week in Los Angeles at the California Show, showcasing stunning concepts, new production models and important brand staples.
It wasn’t the wildest show we can remember, but there was no shortage of good things to see. Porsche really got into it and finally showed off the 911 Dakar.
As our own Chris Chilton pointed out, the slowest (in terms of top speed) 911 since the ’80s is unlikely to prevent this off-road capable production sports car from selling like hotcakes.911 It has the same flat six-cylinder engine as the Carrera 4 GTS, producing 473 horsepower (353 kW/480 PS) and 1.2 inches (30 mm) more ground clearance than the regular car. It also costs a whopping $223,450 (including $1,450 in shipping).

But that wasn’t the only interesting production car unveiled at the show. The 2024 model Subaru Impreza and the 2024 model Kia Seltos have appeared.
There was also a plethora of new energy vehicles that are customary today, such as the 2,000 hp (1,491 kW/2,028 PS) hydrogen-powered Hyperion XP-1 and the all-electric Draco Dragon. This is an all-electric super SUV he happens to develop 2,000 horsepower (1,491 kW / 2,028 PS).
Back to reality, Fiat also made some EV-related announcements, saying it would introduce a new version of the 500e to North America in 2024. It helps customers set up solar panels, energy storage, and everything they need to turn their homes into EV hubs. Meanwhile, Genesis showed off his X convertible concept in Cocaine White.
And that was exactly what the OEM brought to the show. Also in attendance were others like the Galpin family of dealers, who had a whole room of custom cars and other interesting cars at the show.Check out all of them in the gallery below.
