Another day in LA, another post full of photos. The big highlight of Day 2 was seeing Subaru pull the wraps off of their new 7-passenger SUV concept. Bigger than anything they’ve ever built before, we’re looking forward to seeing it in production trim next year before it launches in 2018. The rest of the day was spent soaking in some of the details at each booth, as well as trying to capture the scale some of the booths of a big auto show like this.
We’re on the scene in Los Angeles, CA this week during the media days of the LA Auto Show. With so many new reveals and beautiful cars from wall to wall, we figured we should distill things down and bring you the coolest stuff we saw on Day One. Make sure to check back tomorrow to see more, and stop by our Youtube channel for videos of all the important cars from the show as well!
Well… That’s it. The last MN C&C of the year. What is there to say besides “thank you”? Thank you to everyone who came out to this event. To the event last month, and the one before that, and the one before that, and on and on down the line. It was a great year of MN C&C and it was everyone who attended these events that made it so special.
As the season for MN C&C winds down, we had a beautiful morning for the second to last show of the year. It was great to be able to share a selection of unique cars with everyone from Hyundai (the new Genesis G80), Maserati (the all-new Levante SUV), and Bentley (with a stunning Bentayga). We’ll see everyone again next month, this time on the second Saturday of the month (Oct. 8th).
It was a fantastic day for the August edition of MN C&C and of course, we had to bring out some really special cars. Hopefully everyone stopped by our booth and grabbed some water or a pair of sunglasses and checked out the gorgeous Bentley Continental GT3-R, the new McLaren 570S, the MHCC VW Thing, and everything else we brought to the show. We’ll be looking forward to MN C&C again in September and hope to see you there!
Have you ever wondered what would happen is cars were allowed to compete at the Olympics instead of just athletes? No? Just us?
Well humor us anyway and keep reading to see which vehicles we’d pick to be apart of #TeamMorries in the 2016 Automotive Olympic games!
Name: Nissan GTR Nismo
Sport: 100M Sprint
Hometown: Kaminokawa, Tochigi, Japan
- Accelerated from 0-60 MPH in 2.9 seconds during Car and Driver testing
- 1/4-Mile in 11.2 seconds
- Held Nurburgring Production Car lap record at 7:08.679
The Nissan GTR Nismo has been on a strict diet, and focusing as much on raw speed as agility. The GTR Nismo is a true rising star in the world of Track and Field and should be a strong contender for multiple gold medals in the 2016 Automotive Olympics.
We love our sales people at Morrie’s. They’re the reason we can say in business and thrive. Every year, as a group, we like to thank our sales people with a bit party that includes games, food trucks, Heritage car test drives, and prizes to let them know we appreciate their hard work. This year, as a special treat, the top-reviewed sales person from each store got to pick a manager or corporate employee of their choice to hit with a pie in the face! So thanks, sales staff of Morrie’s Auto Group! You’re all the best in the business!
The July MN C&C event is usually hit or miss in terms of attendance depending on when the 4th of July falls during the week. Last year was pretty quiet with lots of people heading to their cabins or being preoccupied with other holiday festivities. This year however, MN C&C had a MASSIVE turnout with over 1,000 cars and roughly 7,000 spectators that showed up! It was simply amazing to see so many cars and people all within the confines of the Auto MotorPlex in Chanhassen. FOX9 news even came out to broadcast live from the show and did a segment with our very own Ben Robertaccio.
We’d like to thank everyone for coming out to MN C&C and making it such a great event this month and we hope you enjoy your 4th of July weekend safely!
The Ford Mustang was the original pony car back when it debuted in 1964. Designed to carry four passengers in a sporty, comfortable car that was just as stylish as it was fast. Amazingly, it’s survived the test of time, remaining one of the longest continuously produced models of any automaker in the world.
While sales have always been strong in the US, Ford made the decision to make the Mustang a global vehicle, requiring them to step up their game significantly with the 6th generation model in order to take on the best sport coupes from Europe and Japan.
In order to shine on the world stage, Ford took a clean sheet design approach to the 2015 Mustang and fitted things like independent rear suspension, a dramatically improved interior, and new engine options – including an optional turbocharged 4-cylinder for the first time since 1986 – to make this the best Mustang yet.
After a lengthy but much-needed renovation, Morrie’s Minnetonka Subaru has re-opened its show floor with one of the biggest Subaru dealerships in the midwest. To celebrate the occasion, they threw a big party with food trucks, games, a climbing wall, a garden center, and live music! To cap off the grand re-opening, Morrie’s Minnetonka Subaru donated over $31,000 to Pause 4 Paws, a local organization that provides assistance to animal shelters and rescue agencies. We’d like to thank everyone that came out to see our new show floor and enjoy the festivities with us!
