I'm guessing its just written by a non-Transformers fan media member who hears and equates the term "Autobot" with "Automobile robot" and figures its how the franchise refers to Transformers that turn into cars and trucks, regardless of whether its a good or evil character. I could be wrong, but the way the article puts "Autobot" in quotes makes it seem like they aren't familiar with the term.

Nowhere in that article does it say all the cars are Autobots. It just says the Autobots will be on display. The Detroit Free Press article, posted earlier, suggests that not all the cars will be there.

Please don't assume they'll all be Autobots unless it outright says so. mirage4lifeyo makes an excellent point, it is written by a non-fan who may not be as intimately familiar with the franchise as we are.

Maybe we'll find out the names then. That's how I found out the Stingray was Sideswipe in ROTF.
I am a Slave to Wheeljack, Soundwave and Grimlock. Hard to tell who's the best.

Who to choose?
