The players, the hustlers and everybody who loves new cars and future cars focused their attention on Germany's Frankfurt Auto Show this week to see who's coming out with what and who can impress the journalists and the car-buying public with their genius.  If you've never been to an auto show, it's a bit like a rugby scrum where all the world's carmakers try to unnerve their competitors and inspire their customers.  Taking the No. 1 spot on the list is the 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder, which features an electric motor combined with a V8 engine and zero-to-62 mph in only 2.8 seconds.   

"Our editors scoured the nine halls of the Frankfurt show to come up with this list of Greatest Hits," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director for Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com. "Some of these stars of the show are production cars hitting showrooms and driveways soon, some are 'concept' cars in the purest sense, and others are concepts destined for production if the public response is positive.  But whether it offers a crystal clear look at tomorrow or a hazy gaze a couple years down the road, each of the cars on this list offers a glimpse into our automotive future.  And our future is bright."
