According to a report from, a new year tradition in Michigan may be moving its traditional date to fall. The North American Auto Show, held annually at Detroit's Cobo Center, is looking at the possibility of moving the event's date to fall time to allow for outdoor displays.

The idea is only a proposal at this time. Organizers say that a fall date would allow the show to accommodate outdoor displays, including those for autonomous vehicles. The North American International Auto Show has lost some big name world automakers in recent years as well., including Porsche and Mazda.
