There are many ways to explore the new cars, reveals and concepts at the 2023 LA Auto Show, running from November 17 to 26. One way yet to be evaluated was how auto manufacturers would show off their best car pose. As the reader, you are requested to determine your favorites and leave a comment.
I visited different manufacturers’ displays and asked for their best representative to give me a car pose. Some took it seriously, some embraced the weird and knew exactly how to show off their poses and the car. Asking someone to pose with the cars resulted in a whole new experience for the show.
These photos were challenging to achieve, with people opening doors, getting in front of shots, and doing normal attendee things. Please keep that in mind when evaluating your favorites.
Here are the results:
Table of Contents
Subaru Forester Sport
Husband and wife duo Katie and Garrett pose together for Subaru. While you might not be able to tell by their expressions, they were probably the most excited out of everyone for the chance to strike a pose.
Kia Sorento HEV
James from Kia ran around several cars to get this pose. The other gentleman was cleaning the other side, and it was decided it would be better if he was cleaning the side facing the camera while as we took a photo.
Honda Prelude Concept
Chris from Honda gave the most appropriate pose for the Prelude and brought back some growing-up nostalgia for me.
Genesis GV80 Coupe
This is the Designer Pose, from Genesis’s very own.
Toyota Tundra TRD Pro
Traci wants to talk to you about Toyota’s automobiles, and she’s not afraid to let you know.
Chevy Silverado EV RST
Chevy requested to keep the posers’ names anonymous. This pose was named the EV Plus Pose.
Lexus RC F Track Edition
Darko from Lexus has an eye for detail. He also has an eye for rare and fast cars, so we went with the Lexus 2023 RC F Track Edition. Darko remarked there had been no one looking at these cars for hours, and as soon as I came by, people kept streaming over to check them out.
VW Atlas Cross Sport
Luke from VW kept it classy in front of the Atlas Cross Sport.
Ford Mustang GTD
Jennifer from Ford calls this pose the Swishing Thunder Slap, because the hand makes a swish sound when she waves it to show off the car.
Acura Type S
Antonio from Acura makes the car look good, we ended up getting a couple of other people taking photos of him posing. I don’t think he noticed in the moment.
Nissan Hard Body Frontier
Ken from Nissan knew exactly what he wanted to do — break all the rules. Cross his legs and arms, and lean against the car. All the things you’d never do at an auto show. And then he topped it off with his cheese smile.
Living Vehicle GT
Simple, minimalistic, and livable.
Jarmo jumped behind this electric motorcycle with one arm behind the back pose and opted for a serious expression, a vast departure from his big grin to booth visitors.
Aitekx RoboTruck 1T
Lifting the door with one hand of this multi-configuration electric vehicle, Robotruck 1T, Edmund told me how he just finished driving this prototype through the desert and was showing me some epic videos of him off-roading.

The Author’s Pose
After making everyone else pose for me, I thought it prudent to come up with my own car pose for the LA Auto Show, so this is what I went for, with the 2023 Lexus RC F, chosen because it was what I was near and with someone available to take my photo when I had the idea for myself.
