The Detroit Auto Show Is Already Blowing Minds
Hello, Detroit

Updated from Jan. 8 with new photos

Even with the black cloud hanging over the auto industry that is President-elect Trump's Twitter feed, the Detroit Auto Show has been able to shine since kicking off Sunday evening. 

The showstopper by far is Waymo's self-driving minivan (pictured below) in partnership with Fiat Chrysler (FCAM) . Waymo's ultimate mom-mobile, coming from a business that was spun-off from Google's parent company Alphabet Inc. (GOOG) last month, is equipped with self-driving sensors and vision systems.

Executives on hand at the event didn't give a timeline for when the minivan of the future would hit the market for consumers.

Alphabet is a holding in Jim Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS Charitable Trust Portfolio. Want to be alerted before Cramer buys or sells GOOGL? Learn more now.

And yes, the van has a steering wheel mostly because some states, such as California, require one during testing on public roads and highways.

Aside from Waymo's van, here are several other things from the show that have caught TheStreet's attention while policing Instagram. 

The Awesome Acura NSX, in Racing Form

Honda Motor Co.'s (HMC) Acura division finally brought the iconic NSX back this year in the form of a 573 horsepower beast that has celebrities such as Jay Leno and Seinfield pretty excited.

Here is the NSX in race car form.
