Top 6 New Mid-Life Crisis Cars from the Detroit Auto Show

Direct from NAIAS, here are the Top 6 New Mid-Life Crisis Cars from the Detroit Auto Show!

The skeletal ceiling above the exhibit halls of Detroit’s Cobo Center is a rubix cube of jet black piping, vice grips and lighting rigs. Yet, as if an elaborate magic trick, there are somehow no shadows cast by the vehicles which will carry us all into the future. For two weeks this month, safely inside from the brutal wind and icy temps, 3D printed accent pieces and chiseled steel that has been stamped and since rolled far away from assembly lines will glisten with the promise of the vitality of youth and the eternal hope of unending adventure.

If you’re planning on a mid-life crisis in 2016, here are your mid-life crisis worthy rides.

2017 LEXUS LC 500

Easily the showstopper from the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, the shiny red Lexus LC 500 drew huge crowds before, during and after the tarp was dramatically pulled away. It’s simple to understand why the 2017 Lexus LC 500 is my favorite car from the 2016 Detroit Auto Show: the smooth slope of the hood, the lack of any hard edges, the elegance of that front grill. My god I could mid-life crisis the hell out of this car.

2017 BMW i8

In my mind, BMW has always been a tennis club car, fancy but stuffy. Not so with the 2017 BMW i8! This beauty is sleek AND sophisticated with rounded edges and supple curves. She’s about as sporty as sporty gets and she’s our 2nd fave from the 2016 NAIAS Detroit Auto Show.

2017 Chevy Corvette

A classic American sports car, the new Corvette shown at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show demands attention with it’s muscular accents and pointed tip which pierced the hearts and minds of car lovers at NAIAS.

2016 Chevy Camaro

Quite possibly the ‘manliest’ car at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, the red line Camaro exudes confidence and native Detroit pride. The 2016 Camaro blends the macho with the sublime like no other car at NAIAS 2016.

2016 Volvo XC90

Because not every mid-life crisis involves a tiny sports car, the Volvo XC90 is for guys who want to get off the grid in style during their mid-life crisis. The Volvo XC90 lets you head into the mountains AND down to the beach.

KIA Telluride Concept

Finally, maybe you are a few years away from your real mid-life crisis, so you can look ahead to the KIA Telluride, a brand new luxury large SUV concept, to transport you and your family (that’s right) around from the slopes to the city, all while giving you health diagnostic readouts on your door’s control center (hey, you are getting up there in years).

Hi-tech future meets happy mid-life in the KIA Telluride, a stunning concept I hope with fingers-crossed becomes a reality in the next few years. Because there’s not always a crisis when you’ve got a rad family up for adventures and a car perfectly suited to get you there…wherever there may be.
