2005 Frankfurt Auto Show Photo Gallery
A blend of fresh faces and formal introductions
This year, Frankfurt was the stage for the debut of near-production models like the BMW Z4 Coupe and was the official launch pad for the 2006 Porsche Cayman, a model that has been publicized for months. Other highlights included a larger, performance-oriented Toyota RAV4 and hints about the next Kia Optima and Saturn VUE (Opel Antara GTC). And then there was the Jaguar XK Convertible, a model that was announced but visible only on an 8x10 sheet of Kodak paper.
On the following pages are brief summaries of 24 Frankfurt debuts of particular importance to U.S. car shoppers.
