The other day I headed out to the WB lot to witness a cool design panel put on by AutoDesignO. A couple of my friends from Hyundai and Mazda (Chief Designer Chris Chapman & Design Director Derek Jenkins) plus Frank Saucedo from GM and another design dood from BMW. The panel was called “Cars of Character” and focused on design trends over the years as well as using cars in film. That’s my bag, baby.

So, after a few hours on the lot doing some other things over at Ellen, I headed to the event and had a great time seeing some of these guys designs and hearing them speak. I went to school with Chris and we had some fun times back in the day. He’s responsible for the below Genesis Concept. It’s beautiful, eh?

I’ll be taking the 2015 Genesis to SEMA this year and shooting an episode of 5Minute Drive with Christopher Hubbard from HUBB Filters. More news on that soon, but check out these shots.
