The Plucky Little Toyota S-FR Concept Miata-Fighter Looks Amazing

Is Toyota spending so much on R&D that they have no more money to buy rights to letters? If so, that would explain both why their new small sports car concept looks so fantastic, and why they named it by juggling the same letters as in the F-RS. If only having the rights to three letters means more cars like this,… »10/08/15 9:15amThursday 9:15am

Nissan Makes A Modern Scion xB, Then Covers It In Thick, Creamy Tech-Speak Millennial Bullshit

Nissan’s latest concept car for the Tokyo Motor Show appears to be a quite nice and rational update of a car they didn’t make, which was then slathered in some of the most potent, weapons-grade marketing horse-, bull-, and batshit we’ve seen in a good while. Seriously, get a vomit bag ready and keep it close. »10/06/15 3:20pmTuesday 3:20pm

Porsche's Gorgeous Tesla-Fighting Mission E Concept Looks Like... The Next 911?

Everyone thinks Porsche’s Mission E could be the next electric Panamera. But it’s smaller than that, which means you might be looking at the next 911 instead despite the four doors. No luxurious rear seats, but speed and beauty this time with an exciting concept that we’re hoping hits the streets by 2019. »9/15/15 10:47am9/15/15 10:47am

When Ford Was Bonkers: The Ford Econoline Kilimanjaro

It’s sometimes reassuring to know that substances like peyote can solve any problem you may have. Ford needed some sort of van-based show car in 1970, so they just (this is speculation, of course) applied liberal amounts of peyote to their Econoline design team and whammo, out screamed the Econoline Kilimanjaro. All… »9/03/15 8:20pm9/03/15 8:20pm

Peugeot's New Fractal Concept Is Like Sexy, Sexy Math

A good concept car should really push the limits of what’s possible with regard to design and materials, and ideally leave you feeling just a bit uneasy, but in a good way. It needs to push boundaries and ideas, and I think Peugeot’s managed that with their Fractal concept, even if the name sounds right out of 1994. »9/01/15 4:15pm9/01/15 4:15pm

GM Built A Modern Hybrid Citroën DS That Was Years Ahead Of Its Time 

I’m not exactly sure what was in the water or gin or drug-spiked milk or whatever American car company execs drank at the turn of the recent century, but there seems to have been an odd fascination with iconic French cars. Chrysler almost made a plastic 2CV, and General Motors seems to have built a very advanced… »7/17/15 4:34pm7/17/15 4:34pm

This Concept Of A Beetle Reborn As A Badass Sportscar Is Pretty Great

It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for re-imaginings of what a modern VW Beetle could be. While my own takes tend towards the broke-ass end of the market, there are people out there thinking similar thoughts, but with opposite results. Like A.Deniz Özbarli, the designer of the Alpera Tulpar, a Beetle reborn as a… »4/23/15 9:35pm4/23/15 9:35pm
