If you have an Erector Set laying around somewhere, congratulations! You’re properly equipped to make an accurate scale model of a new military vehicle concept, the Partisan One. The Partisan One is a rugged, wildly basic 4×4 that’s built from a simple frame of right angles and bolt-on parts. It’s supposed to be…Read more… Continue […]

GM Shows Off A New Autonomous Fuel-Cell Truck Platform Called SURUS And It’s Pretty Damn Cool

I have to admit, I was surprised by GM’s announcement of their new robotic fuel-cell-powered all-terrain utility-truck platform, SURUS. Most automaker reveals aren’t this confidently utilitarian, and it also seems to be a rebirth of a GM concept I thought was long dead, the Hy-wire fuel-cell concept that featured a…Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

The Toyota GR HV Sports Concept Is A Hybrid 86 With Both An Automatic And A Stick Shift Together

Well this certainly doesn’t look boring, this Toyota GR HV Sports Concept thing. It looks damn close to a Toyota 86, just with a different front, rear, interior, a hybrid powertrain and a freaky gearbox. I sort of love it.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

The Toyota Tj Cruiser Concept Is A Toolbox On Wheels

Ahead of this month’s Tokyo Motor Show, Toyota is telling us about a lot of cool new shit, like yesterday’s third-generation Century. Today we get a boxy concept car they’re calling the Tj Cruiser, which looks like the car equivalent of a bull in a china shop. In a good way, though. Read more… Continue […]

Let’s Hope Honda’s Electric Sports Car Concept Doesn’t Just Break Our Hearts

Remember that adorable retro-futuristic electric compact car concept Honda dangled in front of us a couple weeks ago? Apparently the company’s going to put a sports car body on the same platform to help convince us that EVs are awesome. It’s a great pitch, I just hope Honda’s not planning on pulling a CR-Z with […]

We’ve written about small sports car-maker Rezvani before, makers of the Beast, a car owned by Chris Brown and some small number of other, lesser humans, I guess. Now Rezvani is making an SUV, and, in addition to their teaser images, we have some spy photos of the actual car.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

This Planned Electric Three-Wheeler Looks Fantastic And Has A Novel Solution For Charging

I get emails about concepts and proposals and grand automotive schemes all the time. It’s pretty rare that any of them actually come to fruition. But I was sent one that, while still very much non-existent, was charming and interesting enough that I want to show it to all of you. It’s called NOBE (the […]

Honda Wins With This Fantastic Electric Retro-Future Concept

After a string of boring silver suppositories calling themselves “concept cars” at the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show, Honda’s Urban EV concept is like a slap in the face with your favorite sandwich: surprising, but delightful. It’s an all-new electric platform for Honda, though the character and look are clearly based on…Read more… Continue Reading at […]

The Mercedes-Benz Concept EQA Shows How Mercedes Can Phone In An Electric Hatch With A TV For A Grille

It’s notable that the Mercedes-Benz Concept EQA uses a large, color display screen in place of the grille, because that makes it easy to remove or change the big Mercedes tri-star badge and replace it with, say, any other company’s badge. If that happened, you’d never notice because this concept car, while sleek and…Read more… […]

Autonomous Cars Aren’t Even Here Yet And I’m Already Bored With Them

Whether you let your Tesla take over in traffic or you’re satisfied with a car’s power ending at cruise control, consumer vehicles cannot fully drive themselves yet. But as novel and new as the whole “self-driving cars” thing is, it’s already melding into a big puddle of blah. Take the Audi Aicon concept, for example.Read […]

I’m Pretty Sure This Volkswagen Electric Concept Teaser Video Is For A New Type 4

Volkswagen has released a little teaser video before the Frankfurt Auto Show of a new concept in their I.D. electric car series, said to be a development of their previous I.D. Crozz concept. I think I figured out what this one is all about, though: it’s an electric version of the legendary Volkswagen Type 4.Read […]

Jaguar’s New Concept Car Wants You To Talk To Your Steering Wheel And Take It Everywhere With You

Jaguar’s latest concept car, FUTURE-TYPE (they seem to want it shouted in all-caps) looks a lot like other deep-future concept cars we’ve seen before, though there is one key difference here. Instead of just making a concept car, Jaguar has also made you a life partner, in the form of an artificially intelligent…Read more… Continue […]

Kia’s New Wagon Concept Is A Beautiful Tease That Probably Won’t Come To America

Alright, Kia. Sit down. We need to talk. Sure, you’re just getting into the groove of this “cool cars” thing. That’s fine, understandable. But if there’s one thing you don’t do in this realm of “coolness,” it’s tease a beautiful shooting brake and casually mention that hey, you know, it’s probably not coming to…Read more… […]

The Cold War Was Once Fought With Bonkers Concept Cars

It’s not widely known, but for a very brief period in the early 1950s, the Cold War was being fought with massive, bulbous slabs of cyclopean automotive futurism: the first concept cars. Before the Space Race got started, America and the Soviet Union squared off behind panoramic windshields and huge steering wheels. …Read more… Continue […]
