Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn has announced that his company will turn the Kicks concept they trotted out at the 2014 São Paulo Motor Show into an actual car. Looks right between a Juke and a Murano with a little dash of “lifted Maxima.”
Last night, electric car startup Faraday Future served up the wild FFZERO1 concept as “the most extreme iteration of what it can build” with a barrage of buzzwords that left most people wondering what the hell was actually going on. But according to two company officials who spoke to Jalopnik, there is a real car out…
A patent filed by Ford a few weeks ago reveals a rather unorthodox alternative to throwing a bicycle in your trunk. Like the Batpod that ejected from the Batmobile in The Dark Knight, the back wheel of your car could quickly transform into a self-balancing electric unicycle.
“Acura has lost its way.” That’s become one of car enthusiasts’ favorite refrains. People say the brand’s “bland now” but basically what it comes down to is this: we all hate the beaks they adopted in the 2000s. Now it looks like the company might finally be ready to try something else.
The designers at McLaren Applied Technologies put together a bold vision of the future outside of any current series regulations to show what could be done if Formula One would just let them. The MP4-X concept sounds as if it’s straight out of science fiction, and we’d love to see some of its ideas become reality.
The Zarooq SandRacer kind of looks like a Local Motors Rally Fighter made of Legos. Both cars are conceptually similar; hand-made off-road desert coupes. But the Dubai-based crew is promising something even sweeter; a spec racing series.
The Chevy Silverado “Bone Collector” sounds intense but actually seems remarkably practical. I dig what a few tubes of steel does for the look and I wish GM would offer this bed drawer system as a factory option, like, yesterday.
About a decade after the introduction of the original Honda Ridgeline, we’re going to get a second generation of the trucklet. The face, hood, roof, bed, and profile of this Honda Baja racer are basically what’s going to be on the production version, so take it all in.
In 1967 the president of Pontiac was shown this LeMans Concept Sport Truck; a 350 V8-powered El Camino with the interior and front end of a Pontiac LeMans. He didn’t like it enough to build it, but at least somebody preserved it.
Yamaha has an extremely diverse portfolio of products for sale. You probably know they make motorcycles but they also do pressure washers, guitars, generators, water pumps and pianos, which actually makes sense as every last one of those things is a musical instrument. This month they’ll show us their idea of a sports…
You want a small, efficient, inexpensive truck in America? That’s funny, because it looks like the Malaysians wish they could have our big boorish sand-jumping monsters. Why not mash these ideas together?
The BMW G310 Stunt concept just made its debut at Brazil’s Sao Paulo Motorcycle show, dripping with crazy colors and hooligan farkle. That bling probably won’t see production, but the 310cc engine and frame style just might be the base for an inexpensive BMW bike line.
Performance tricycles are a strange segment. The Can-Am Spyder proved halfway decent to ride but embarrassing to be seen on. The Polaris Slingshot is polarizing, though we love it around these parts. Now Honda presents the Neowing concept; which of course they say does it all without compromise. What do you think?
Driving with a trailer in tow leaves with you a gigantic blind spot directly behind your vehicle. So to make it easier to keep an eye on traffic following you, Land Rover has come up with a way to make trailers appear to be transparent using strategically placed cameras.
Airports and cities don’t get along for a few specific reasons—namely, air pollution, noise pollution, and plain old risk. As such, some designers think that a future of increased urban density could be an opportunity to mix things up. This concept for a new airport in downtown Stockholm is simply mixed up.
Airplanes used to be luxurious things, laden with fine china and unlimited wine. But over the years, the glory of flying has faded—giving way to broken technology (frustrating), bruised knees (painful), terrible smells (actually dangerous!). Yet, somehow, someone has figured out a way to make things worse.
For electric vehicles to truly supplant their gas-guzzling predecessors, there needs to be as many charging stations on the roads as there are gas stations—if not more. So BMW proposes upgrading the street lights that already line roads everywhere with charging capabilities and energy-efficient lighting.
