2018 Paris Motor Show Editors' Picks

By Greg Migliore, Autoblog

The 2018 Paris Motor Show was an exercise in decadence, design and future mobility solutions. While this year's show reflected the broader industry trend of moving away from flashy auto show displays, many car companies still used Paris as the setting for their most critical future products. Here are the reveals our Editors judged to be the best. 

Fifth Place: Renault EZ-Ultimo (15 Points)

Social Media Manager Michael Dylan Ferrara: WOW. This thing is beautiful. Do the French get design or what? TBH, I'm loving autonomous concepts lately: The future is going to be very comfortable.

Senior Editor Alex Kierstein: This is a concept car’s concept car. Wildly futuristic, decadent, interesting inside and out. Yes, the protruding front fenders have been done, but they work here. This is where science fiction concepts of a decade ago meet on-road possibility in a decade ahead.

Fourth Place: Skoda Vision RS (23 Points)

Associate Editor Joel Stocksdale: This is pretty much the car I'm waiting for. I've felt for a long time that going green and having fun don't have to be mutually exclusive, and it looks like VW Group is seeing that. While this is a Skoda-badged machine, hopefully the production model will have a VW counterpart that can come to America.

Third Place: 2019 BMW 3 Series (24 Points)


Consumer Editor Jeremy Korzeniewski: Yes, it lost its manual transmission, and yes, that is a travesty. But there's no denying the global importance of the 3 Series. And, transmission aside, I fully expect BMW's latest sedan to be class-leading in pretty much every category that matters.

Second Place: Porsche 911 Speedster (57 Points)

Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore: A gorgeous car that's true Porsche's rich heritage. And with GT3 parts and a naturally aspirated flat six, it's easily the car I most want to drive off the show floor in Paris.

Senior Editor (Green) John Beltz Snyder: I love the 911, and it’s the only 911 at the show. Big points by default.

First Place: Peugeot E-Legend (74 Points)

Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore: It's an EV concept with 1960s and '70s styling. Sweet. Peugeot is returning to the US, but its plan is murky. Forget about ride-sharing and mobility solutions. Do this.

Managing Editor Greg Rasa: The trick to acceptance of EVs isn't just extending their range and shortening their charge time. Those aren't the impediments people think they are. The real trick is making them desirable. This coupe is far prettier than any Tesla.

Contributing Editor James Riswick: Holy cow. An electric car that looks like that? Where can I deposit my money? And will I need to move to France to have one?
