Auto industry looking for sales boost from 2011 Detroit Auto Show

The last two years of the Detroit auto show have certainly been less than upbeat, but this year should be different. While one shouldn’t expect any grand theatrics or the hoopla that would have been expected pre-2009, there will be some fanfare and things to look out for. For one, Porsche will be making its return to the show, Chevrolet will be celebrating its 100th anniversary, and the Green Hornet’s car will be making an appearance.

There will also be some important vehicle introductions this year from GM, Ford, Chrysler, Honda and Hyundai. While most of the automakers will be bringing something to the show, we can expect to see from impressive stuff from the Germans, as BMW is going to show a 1-Series M Coupe. Mercedes will also be making a bit of noise with its redesigned C-Class and Diesel S-Class sedan.
