  • First show of the 2013-2014 auto show season
  • Fifty concept and production car debuts expected
  • Some debuts already confirmed

Every year, automakers show their latest creations at major auto shows around the world. Among the largest in the U.S. is the LA Auto Show. The Southern California event marks the beginning of the international auto show season, giving us our first look at vehicles we can expect in showrooms in the coming months and years. For 2013, the LA show will include no fewer than 50 debuts. Automakers such as Chevrolet, Ford, MINI, Honda, Subaru, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz will each reveal cars never before seen in North America or, in some cases, ones that have never been seen anywhere.

The show will be open to the public from November 22 through December 1, but the automotive press gets a preview on November 20 and 21. During the press days, auto executives will pull the wraps off their new concepts and production models and discuss the vehicles with automotive reporters. We'll have to wait on those details, but some information is already out about what we can expect to see.

A new Porsche is confirmed to make its first-ever appearance at the LA Auto Show. Porsche calls the crossover SUV the Macan. It's smaller than the Cayenne and is expected to compete with compact luxury SUVs such as the BMW X3 when it arrives as a production model. Some spy shots of the vehicle have shown proportions similar to the Cayenne, but until the global reveal at LA, details will remain fuzzy.

Other automakers have confirmed world debuts but have not specified which vehicles they plan to reveal. Among those companies is MINI. The British maker of premium compact vehicles is expected to debut the third-generation replacement for its mainstay model, the MINI Cooper Coupe, but has not yet confirmed its appearance. Subaru, Honda, Chevrolet, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Volkswagen have also promised world debuts without naming specifics.

As always, AutoTrader.com will bring you coverage of all the major debuts at the LA Auto Show. As the auto show season progresses, we'll bring news from around the world about which vehicles are arriving, why they are important and when you can expect to see similar models in showrooms. Auto show season is a special time for automakers, show attendees and drivers who will eventually get behind the wheel of these exciting new vehicles.

What it means to you: If you want to see the latest concepts and production models, attend a major auto show or follow AutoTrader.com's coverage of the 2013-2014 auto show season.
