Strike A Pose at the 2023 LA Auto Show

Michael Kahn

LA Auto Show 2023 Pose Subaru Forester Sport Katie Garrett

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:

Subaru Forester Sport
