2015 North American International Auto Show Debut Preview

Article by Rick Jensen (Turboguy).

Several drool-worthy performance cars make their world debuts tomorrow, January 12, at the 2015 NAIAS in Detroit. And team Revvolution is already on-site and ready to bring you each reveal as they happen.

Unless Nissan drops a new R36 GT-R, the most anticipated single debut goes to Acura and its long-awaited NSX supercar. Word is the NSX’s ultra-sexy bod will be powered by a three-motor hybrid system combined with a mid-mounted, twin-turbo V-6. Current estimates put power output at one meeeelllion horses (estimate may change slightly Monday).

Of all the manufacturers at the 2015 North American International Auto Show, Ford is without a doubt the most ambitious. The Blue Oval is set to debut at least four new performance vehicles—each with the potential to be segment-leading models.

Military bros and Area 51 security police will dig the new F-150 Raptor truck, which should "pick up” where today’s dune-destroying machine leaves off. Rumors give the new Raptor an all-aluminum body in-line with the new F-150 debut and we’re all curious to see (and more important, hear), what’s under the hood.

Hot hatch lovers won’t have to overnight parts from Japan anymore; their late Christmas present is a new Focus RS that may very well have segment-dominating horsepower and handling.

It’s just an embarrassment of riches for Mustang enthusiasts these days. If the amazing new GT or the high-revving, track-ready Shelby GT350 isn’t enough, Monday’s reveal of the seriously upgraded Shelby GT350R means they can now go Z/28 hunting.

And domestic performance fans are straight gonna flip over Ford’s new halo car: a Ford GT successor that should improve upon the 2005-2006 model’s 550 horses, 3.3-second 0-60 and 200+ mph top speed!

Many more debuts are set for tomorrow including an electric Chevy Bolt Tesla fighter and a turbo 4-powered Mini John Cooper Works machine. And we’ll get a first in-the-sheetmetal look at the wicked, 640-horse Cadillac CTS-V.

Stay on and we’ll feed you all of the good stuff from the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit!

I'm excited to see it all, this year may top the last 10 years of NAIAS, and team Revv will be there to cover it all!
