2009 Los Angeles Auto Show

The 2011 Porsche Boxster Spyder on display at the 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show

Los Angeles has always been a city of cars, so it’s no surprise that the annual car show held there is an event of grand proportions. Those attending the show, which runs from December 4-13, will witness firsthand as cars are internationally and nationally unveiled. Many futuristic concept cars will make their debut, along with plenty of cars that will hit the market in just a few months of this event. This gathering of soon-to-be available cars means that the show is a prime spot for comparison shopping. In addition to automobiles, the event is featuring many technology and car-related exhibits.
