Melbourne Motorshow 2011

I went to the Melbourne Motorshow tonight.  This year, I noticed the following manufacturers were not present:
Fiat, Lotus, Daewoo, SAAB and Alfa Romeo.   Here are photos of concept cars and cars I found interesting.

Firstly, a special section dedicated to Porsches is in order.

These two were available for auction.

911 Speedster - The 997 interpretation of a classic - AU$550,000 - that's even more than a Turbo, which goes for around AU$380,000.
