The Los Angeles Auto Show took to the Los Angeles Convention Center November 18 through 27—running clear through the bustling Thanksgiving weekend—with press days kicking off on November 16. The century-old show drew its typical consumer and media throng to the cavernous exhibit space, and automakers' related parties took to surrounding venues. Here's a look inside some of the show's notable moments, including Nintendo's life-size Mario Karts, Porsche's racetrack at Vibiana, and the auto show's own quick turnaround for its benefit preview night.
