Nissan Made The Accurate Boring Car Of The Future Way Back In 1983

I love old concept cars because it’s fun to look at the crazy ways designers and engineers imagined our future. Very rarely, however, do automakers glimpse into the world of tomorrow and actually get it right. But that’s basically what Nissan did in 1983 with the NRV-II concept. It’s just like the cars we drive…Read […]

The 2018 Chevy Silverado Performance Concept Has A Battle-Ready Supercharged V8 Heart Of Fury 

It’s Day 593 into the war. Or Day 840. Or 1,383. You can’t keep track anymore. And it’s not really your job to, anyways. You’re just the scout. The runner. You simply complete the missions until there aren’t any more to complete. You aren’t paid to ask questions.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

I Am Afraid That I Am Not Manly Enough For The 2018 Ford F-150 RTR Muscle Truck Concept

I could be wrong, but I think there’s a pretty stereotypical checklist of items you need to complete in order to be considered manly. An affinity for meat. A thirst for whiskey. A love of going outdoors. Flannel. Ron Swanson stuff—and stuff I can generally get behind. But this new RTR truck concept? I dunno. […]

Italian Coachbuilder’s Modified G-Wagen Sure Looks Like This 2012 Mercedes Concept

Italy has always been the home of small coachbuilding companies that take manufacturer’s cars and give them novel and exciting new bodies. Think Zagato, Italdesign, Pininfarina. They specialized in making cars that looked like nothing else. Ares is an Italian coachbuilder, too, but they seem to be more about making…Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

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 […]

Here’s Some Leaked Pics Of Rezvani’s New ‘Tactical Urban Weapon’ SUV (UPDATED)

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 […]
