Here are all the reveals you may have missed at the 2021 LA Auto Show.

After being canceled last year due to the pandemic, the LA Auto Show made a triumphant return, hosting some major model debuts from track-focused sports cars like the bonkers Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS to Toyota and Subaru's first-ever electric cars and futuristic concepts like the Hyundai Seven Concept and Kia EV9 Concept. These are the star cars of the 2021 LA Auto Show.


2022 Fisker Ocean

After the production model debuted in 2019, the production-spec Fisker Ocean finally debuted at the 2021 LA Auto Show. With its sleek styling, a range of over 350 miles, and a starting price tag of $37,499, the Fisker Ocean has the potential to be a Tesla Model Y killer when production begins late next year.

2023 Nissan Ariya

The Nissan Ariya was revealed back in 2019, but after numerous delays, Nissan's electric crossover was shown off in LA before deliveries begin in 2022. Nissan's Tesla Model Y rival is one of the most attractive electric crossovers we've seen in a long time and has the potential to be an even bigger hit than the best-selling Leaf.

2022 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS

Put simply, the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS is the most extreme Cayman ever made, with aggressive aero, less weight, increased downforce, and, more power, which is provided by the 911 GT3's naturally aspirated flat-six producing 493 hp and 317 lb-ft. The sprint from 0-60 mph in this track monster takes 3.2 seconds before the GT4 RS maxes out at 196 mph. Still need a 911?
