It was another busy day at the Los Angeles Convention Center for the 2013 LA Auto Show! We made sure to get plenty of coverage of all the Morrie’s brands, plus more to share with you. Here are more pictures and information from the latest debuts here at the show.
Nissan had quite the presence at the Auto Show this week with multiple Nismo performance vehicles including the all-new Nissan Sentra Nismo concept, the 2014 Juke Nismo RS, which will be available in January and finally the showstopper, the 2015 GT-R Nismo!

Ford’s main attraction this week at the Auto Show was the 2015 Edge Crossover Concept and it sure drew a lot of attention. We were excited to be able to see the concept that will hopefully pave the way for the future of the production model Edge.
We were very excited to be able to get a closer look at both the 2015 Subaru WRX and the Subaru Legacy concept! The WRX stole the show this week as auto enthusiasts have been waiting for the production model to be unveiled since the concept debuted last year in New York. The Legacy concept was just as beautiful as we had anticipated with menacing headlights and a low sleek roofline.

Kia’s k900 luxury sedan also debuted this week which gave us a better idea of the direction that Kia is headed with their transition to a full luxury lineup. Stay tuned for more information on when we will have one on our show floor at Morrie’s Kia.
We also got to see some excitement at the Hyundai booth where they brought an all-new Tucson hydrogen fuel-cell crossover, the 2014 Hyundai Elantra and a Veloster Turbo R-SPEC! Check out our pictures below.

Cadillac brought the Elmiraj concept to the Auto Show this week and it was constantly surrounded with individuals trying to get a gander. This vehicle is easy on the eyes with it’s long sleek sweeping hood, elegant look and gorgeous interior. This vehicle may not make it into production but we are keeping our fingers crossed. As well as the concept, Cadillac also had their recently revealed 2015 Cadillac Escalade on display.
Morrie’s is proud to bring you the latest news as it happens live from the LA Auto Show. Make sure to check our YouTube page soon for videos on all these great new models!
Morrie’s Automotive Group is proud to bring you live coverage from the 2013 LA Auto Show this week! Many of the brands in the Morrie’s group were debuting, revealing and introducing new models and we were live getting coverage to share with you!
The first press conference of the day, and arguably the most exciting, was Subaru’s where we saw the all-new 2015 Subaru WRX and the Legacy Concept. Attendees swarmed the stage following the press conference to look at the WRX and see how the vehicle has evolved since we saw the concept back in March at the NY Auto Show.
Nissan pulled out all the stops with an appearance by the company’s Director of Excitement, Usain Bolt, as well as complimentary beverages and their own Nissan NV grilled cheese food truck! The press conference was packed as they rolled out the 2014 Juke Nismo RS as well as a refreshed 2015 GT-R Nismo! Make sure to check out the photo of Usain’s signature pose below!
Ford got edgy this year with their all-new 2014 Edge crossover concept. The 5-passenger concept gives us a sneak peek at what lies ahead with the next generation Edge. Lately Ford has been focusing a lot on their driver assist technologies and it is no secret when you see what the Edge has to offer. A Collision avoidance system and a remote parking feature are enough to catch the eye of any consumer in the market for an affordable crossover vehicle.
Although the Maserati Ghibli has already landed at Morrie’s Luxury Auto, it was still very exciting to be in attendance for its North American debut today at the LA Auto Show. After you check out our photos, stop into Morrie’s Luxury Auto and take one for a test drive to get the real experience!
We made sure to stop by the Porsche press conference to get coverage for all of our luxury car fans and it sure was packed in there! The most affordable Porsche on the market, the Macan crossover compact SUV, debuted today as well as the 911 Turbo Cabriolet.
Hyundai was the last press conference of the day and as usual they did not disappoint! The crowd was packed as they unveiled a 2014 Veloster Turbo R-SPEC along with the new Tucson hydrogen fuel-cell crossover and the 2014 Hyundai Elantra.
Stay tuned for more live coverage from the LA Auto Show this week and make sure to find us on Facebook and Twitter for LIVE updates.
The first Saturday of the month fell upon us again this weekend and that meant it was time for another busy day at the Automotorplex in Chanhassen. We experienced a gorgeous sunny summer day and the turnout for the event was incredible. The Automotorplex filled up quickly with over 1,000 cars and 5,000 attendees, making it the best turnout the event has ever seen!
There were an assortment of different cars that made it out on Saturday. From classics to hot new exotics, there was never a dull moment. We are so proud to be able to help out with such an exciting and fun event and each month we look forward to what the first Saturday will bring. Make sure to stop out for the last few events of the season in September and October and make sure you find the Morrie’s tent for a free cup of coffee and pair of Buy Happy sunglasses! For more information on the event head over to the official website for MN C&C. http://www.mncandc.com/
The Morrie’s Mazda/Miracles Of Mitch Mazda 2 made its second appearance this past weekend. Many consider Road America to be the United States premier racetrack. With its dramatic elevation changes and technical corners, it demands the best from both driver and car. Then, stir in a couple long straights where maximum speed is obtained.
At Road America, our nimble and reliable little Mazda 2 routinely hit speeds well over one hundred miles per hour bringing home third place. This was a particularly strong finish given that it is difficult for a single car to compete against a team of several cars as they can use each other for drafting and even bump drafting.
With Michael Ashby at the wheel, the Morrie’s Mazda/Miracles Of Mitch Mazda 2 broke up their formation to finish a very strong third. An engine control unit re-flash, now available, will give us some additional horsepower and a few more RPM’s at the top end. With these modest upgrades, we will improve on these already fantastic results.
Mother Nature finally cooperated long enough to give us the perfect day for Cars & Coffee this past Saturday. With sunshine and warm weather, cars turned out in droves to nab a spot in the show. Thank you to everyone that sacrificed a few extra hours of sleep on a Saturday morning to make this event a great one. Check out our photos from the event!

Last Friday the Herb Brooks Foundation’s Annual Golf Classic took place at Victory Links Golf Course and we were happy to be in attendance once again. We have had an ongoing partnership with the Herb Brooks Foundation over the past year and it has been our pleasure to support the organization.
Throughout the winter season we supported the Herb Brooks Rink Rat program by providing shuttles and transporting Minneapolis public school students to parks in the area so that they could learn the sport of hockey. We are always looking for ways to give back to our community and our partnership with the Herb Brooks Foundation allows us to do just that.
This was the second year we sponsored the Herb Brooks Golf Open. We had a team of Morrie’s employees that played in the tournament and we also brought a few cars out to the event. Check out our photos and video coverage. We look forward to another successful Golf Classic next summer!
If you’ve been actively reading our blog, you already know that Morrie’s Minnetonka Mazda and Twin Cities Luxury Auto have been working together to help build a Mazda2 B-Spec Racecar for one of our loyal clients, John McCarthy.
The Mazda2 racecar build is complete and TCLA Service Manager, Michael Ashby has been working closely with McCarthy and the Miracles of Mitch Foundation to raise money for children in need. Ashby and McCarthy became aware of the Miracles of Mitch Foundation when they participated in an event sponsored by our Mazda and TCLA stores. The event allowed us, as well as our customers to donate a bike to the Miracles of Mitch Foundation for each car that was sold in April. McCarthy and Ashby felt inspired to continue a partnership with the Miracles of Mitch Foundation. To them, the foundation carries a message that everyone needs to hear and they decided to embrace the idea of helping the foundation to raise funds.
The 2013 Season of MN C&C is underway and although the weather hasn’t been very cooperative, the turnout has been great. This past weekend was the 2nd event of the season and we brought out some of the hottest cars from our Cadillac lineup as well as a few luxury vehicles from Twin Cities Luxury Auto.
As always, our free hot coffee was a huge hit and helped to keep spectators warm during the rainy cold weather that we experienced this past Saturday. Along with coffee, we are giving away free Morrie’s sunglasses so make sure to stop by our booth throughout the summer and grab a pair!
We look forward to the rest of the MN C&C season and warm weather, which is sure to bring out more eye catching vehicles from various different owners throughout the metro.
Check out some of our photos below from last weekends event.
