Maybe it's a sign of smaller development budgets in today's still struggling auto industry. But the word "fresh" is hardly the word to describe the concept cars at this year's New York auto show. Despite show organizers promoting newer concepts like the Audi e-tron, Cadillac XTS or Toyota FT-CH beforehand, none were present during the media days at this year's show. Instead, most of the show cars have been seen many times before (Suzuki's Makai debuted almost three years ago!) More "nostalgia" than "new," here are the top eight show cars from this year's Big Apple event.
