Known for showcasing and previewing many new model year cars, as well as concept cars from all the different car companies, the Detroit Auto Show (also known as the NORTH AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL AUTO SHOW) suddenly becomes very relevant to Transformer's fans because of Michael Bay's insistence on cars that are cutting edge for his movies, and his close ties with GM.
Car enthusiast website, Jalopnik.com, reports that this morning on the Today Show, host Matt Lauer broadcast from Detroit at General Motor's Warren Tech Center where Lauer teased the Chevy Beat would be making an appearance at the N.A.I.A.S. in Detroit next week.
The Chevy Beat, based on leaked photographs and footage from sets, will also be making an appearance in the Transformers movie sequel due out this summer as an Autobot named Skids! While not the exact same as the production model that will be shown on at the show this week, it is a good opportunity for Michiganders (and visitors to Michigan) to see the Beat up close.
You can view video of Lauer revealing the Beat on this morning's Today Show here.
Open to the public the 17th through the 25th of January, this should be a nice opportunity for some of our community members.

I was so upset that I missed that!! I've only seen Ironhide and Bee up close (many times) and saw the Prime truck on the freeway on its way to something in the Detroit area. Nothing beats having Prime following you on the freeway, let me tell you
