The 2013 Geneva Motor Show has come and gone, and once again the sheer number of luxury and performance car reveals has consolidated the event's position as one of the most exciting on the global automotive calendar.
After all, where else can you see the debut of three of the fastest cars to ever be produced happen all under the one roof.
As your luxury and performance leader, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the annual event in Geneva is one of Motor Authority’s favorites.
Now, for your enjoyment, we’ve put together a list of our personal top ten debuts from this past week’s show.

10) 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith
: With unique fastback styling, rearward-opening coach doors, and an interior that rivals the stratospheric Phantom, the Wraith promises a combination of sport and elegance that few cars can match. It also does an impressive job of belying its Ghost roots, which caught many by surprise in Geneva this week and guaranteed its presence on our top ten list.
9) 2014 Porsche 911 GT3
: Normally, a new Porsche 911 GT3 would be one of our most coveted cars of any auto show, but in and amongst all the supercars on show in Geneva the new 991-series 911 GT3 was easy to overlook. But with a PDK transmission, electric power steering, and increasingly tech-driven handling, this is like no 911 GT3 ever seen before, which is enough to earn it a spot on our list.
8) Toyota i-Road concept
: You may be thinking we’ve lost our minds for liking the i-Road, but the tiny Toyota was one of the coolest cars at Geneva. Toyota has managed to add some excitement to what would normally be a very dull segment, and if built we certainly wouldn’t mind adding an i-Road to our garage. The vehicle’s standout feature is its “Active Lean” self-leaning system designed to automatically balance it when cornering or travelling over rough surfaces. It’s very impressive in action.

7) 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible
: When it comes to performance cars us regular folk can afford, it’s hard to beat the Chevrolet Corvette. With the reveal of the new C7 generation, the Corvette is suddenly looking like an alternative to some much more expensive metal. The car looks impressive in either coupe or convertible bodystyles, and the shade of gray Chevy used for its Corvette Stingray Convertible debut car looks amazing in the photos--and even better in person.
6) Lamborghini Veneno
: To some, it’s just an Aventador with a body kit, while to others it’s the ultimate expression of Lamborghini and possibly automotive heaven. The fact that Lamborghini was able to shock so many with its Veneno, which is what the company had intended it to do, means it’s definitely among the 10 most interesting debuts to have taken place at the Geneva show this week.
