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.

Oh god, I hope not.

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.

I hope somebody will post some pictures tomorrow.

Maybe we'll find out the names then. That's how I found out the Stingray was Sideswipe in ROTF.

I'd drive up from Toledo, but I don't want to get stuck in between the two cities. Please come to Ohio.

Yeesh, that concept Camaro has the front end of a mid 90s Chevy Cavalier or Pontiac Sunfire

So I was able to go to the Transformers set today and took a bunch of pictures. Enjoy... I have more of the set but this is the main show.

I know it's fast but the styling of the Bugatti is beyond outdated. The Corvette and Camaro look light years ahead. And this is coming from a Mustang guy. Thanks for the pics!

So the Pagani isn't there? Or the Lambo? I really hope they are Decepticons!

There was a lambo is storage. That was just what was on display. It seems that the big army vehicle is Hound. If it wasn't already known.

Yeah, Hound was known about for a while now. But today's display was suppose to be all Autobots and the Pagani not being there makes me believe its a Decepticon.

Well if this is all the autobots on set then there is hope that the other cars that were not displayed here are decepticons and that there will in fact be dinobots in the fourth film as well

The pagani was there today. Check out the 8-9 pics thread in the movie section. The pagani is an autobot

Yea they may have been there but if they were thet were civered in a different area of the set.
Lazerwave
I guess that also means the grey truck is a Decepticon.

The pagani wasn't covered. The Lambo, was in a trailer and the sonic nor the gray truck were there, but the pagani was out driving around with the others.

No. All the Autobots where suppose to be on display today and the Pagani wast there. Having it somewhere else driving around makes it very obvious it isn't ment to be on display.

Lol trust me it's an autobot. Didn't we have this discussion in the movie thread. I mean it was seen today, there were many pics of it taken. It was with the other bots on set. If it wasn't then why not leave it on the trailer like the Lambo. It's an autobot.

I must admit though, I did wonder why the Pagani was only out with one set of the cars and not the other, but I figured that maybe they only had one of that particular model while they have two of the others.

They only just facelifted the Camaro this year (hasn't even made delarships yet) and already Bay's made a better looking version.

I usually hate on : but his props guys did an amazing job on that hero-car.

The dealers, however, are really going to hate not having "the Camaro from the movie"

Still trying to figure out what kinda truck the "new prime" is. (other than tacky. Really? Painted side window covers?) But I can say this. It's not a NEW truck. Aero is EVERTHING in trucking right now, and if you look close on the side of the sleeper compartment there's some sort of drip-rail/seam. Most of those have been eliminated on the latest generation of trucks.

So I'm thinking it MIGHT be a Western Star with a VERY modified hood.

Bay sure likes spending other people's money. Western Stars are some of the most expensive rigs out there. From a distance it looks like an International/Navistar, but I can't rule out it being a Kenworth 860. But I don't think the new 860 has drip rails.
