Last year, the Los Angeles Auto Show moved from January to early December, giving people (are you reading this, Mr. Molyneaux?) more time to buy their spouses a shiny new car for Christmas. More than 1,000 new models, including many being seen for the first time anywhere, will be trotted out for your ooohing and aahhhing pleasure. And what with everyone in on the fuel-efficient/hybrid game, what’s going to be the sexiest green car? Well, the Lexus LF-Ch Premium Compact Hybrid Concept in yellow would really make a statement under the tree (hel-looooo? Mr. Molyneaux???).
