For the 2014 North American International Auto Show we sent out photographer, former automotive designer, and co-founder of Car Design News, Patrick Wong, out to make his selections of what did—and didn’t—catch his fancy in Detroit.

He segmented the cars into three categories: “Expected Satisfaction,” “Pleasantly Delightful,” and “Disappointments.”

Clearly, people can come down in various ways on the cars in question.

Here is what he thinks:

Expected Satisfaction

C  Corvette Z06

L  Lexus RC F

V Volvo Concept XC Coupe

Pleasantly Delightful

T  Toyota FT-1

N Nissan IDx Freeflow

Disappointments

 

M

Ford Mustang

A Cadillac ATS Coupe
