Synopsis

The curtain lifted on the 2008 North American International Auto Show this week revealing, once again, the mercurial market forces at work. On one hand manufacturers more than paid homage to "greener vehicles" introducing hybrid after production hybrid. But then on the other side of the spectrum, new "performance" cars were proudly perched on exhibit stands throughout the show reminding us that "speed" still sells. And there you have the dichotomy of today's auto industry.

Helping to explain both the market as well as the product at this year's show, John McElroy is joined by three internationally-respected automotive experts: Tony Swan from Car and Driver, Automobile Magazine's Jean Jennings as well as industry analyst Jim Hall. Each takes the opportunity to pick their outright winners as well as other vehicles and technologies on the horizon.
