GM cancels 2008 LA Auto Show press conference

After canceling plans to unveil the production version of the Cadillac CTS Coupe and the 2010 Buick LaCrosse, GM has canned plans to hold a press-conference during next week’s 2008 LA Auto Show. GM’s main man, Vice Chairman Bob Lutz, won’t be attending the show as well.

According to spokesman Scott Fosgard, GM feels that with all the negative press surrounding the company right now, any¬†world debuts will get overlooked. “The automotive and business media attention is on what’s going on in Congress and I just have my doubts that the typical auto show news is going to be as newsworthy as what they’re debating,” said Fosgard.

Nonetheless, Fosgard said that GM will still hold North American premieres of the Saab 9-X Air Concept and the production Chevrolet Volt. He said that GM will still be using the same amount of floor space.
