The Oldsmobile F88 Is What The C1 Corvette Should Have Been From The Start
The story of the Chevrolet Corvette started back in 1953, with the introduction of the C1. Although America’s sports car is known for its potent V-8 engines, the earliest production examples started with the anemic Blue Flame – a 3.9-liter (235 cu in) inline-six that made 150 horsepower and 223 pound-feet (302 Nm). And while, eventually, they put a V-8 in it, it was Oldsmobile that beat Chevrolet to it by making their own version of the Corvette called the Oldsmobile F-88.

Tesla Could Learn A Few Things From This Precept Concept
Tesla may lead the market when it comes to electric cars, but there is a sector there it is pretty much absent: the supercar area. The new generation Tesla Roadster announced new and impressive performance figures, but so far it has yet to go into production. So, on paper, with a 0 to 60 mph sprint time of 1.9 seconds, it could take on cars like the Lotus Evija or Rimac Never. In real life though, that doesn’t happen!
2022 Honda Passport TrailSport Rugged Roads Project
Honda unveiled the new, 2022 Pasport TrailSport, and now a new project vehicle was announced. It is called Passport TrailSport Rugged Roads Project, and, as you probably guessed, it is based on the TrailSport.
It was designed by Jon Tuico - you probably know him if you follow YouTube channel JonDZ Adventuring - and will be firstly presented at the Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, Arizona from Sept. 24-26, 2021.
1988 The Forgotten Mid-Engined Peugeot Oxia Concept From 1988 Was a Car Well Ahead of its Time
The Peugeot Oxia is a high-performance supercar concept that the French Automaker conceived back in the late 80s. It pays homage to the company’s past and certainly was a technological revelation well ahead of its time. It was a supercar that would have gone up against cars like the Ferrari F40 and Porsche 959 had it actually gone into production.
To put that into perspective, the hi-tech Oxia had north of 600 horsepower, along with four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering. These specs might seem normal now, but back in the ’80s, they were unheard of. Let’s dwell a little deeper to find out just what the Oxia was all about.
This is the Nissan Z Race Car The World Deserves
The long-awaited Nissan Z has finally been unveiled. With that out of the way, many wonder, what’s next? We know there will be a NISMO version at some point and, no doubt, there will be a facelift in a couple of years, especially if they make it as long as the 370Z (I hope not). Nissan has a rich racing history and the Z is a big part of it, which is why independent automotive designer and illustrator, JONSIBAL is introducing a JGTC-inspired version of the new Z.
This Black-On-Black Lancia Delta Is All CGI But It Deserves To Live
To rally enthusiasts, the Lancia Delta HF Integrale is a legendary vehicle that doesn’t need an introduction. To this day, the Italian hot hatch remains the car that has won the most World Rally Championships (WRC) in a row – six. Although in 2018, Automobili Amos came up with a modernized version of the Delta. It wasn’t the attainable hot-hatch we still crave. However, this doesn’t stop pixel artists from coming up with their own version of the icon and Matteo Gentile (aka mattegentile) has come up with something that would easily fit the bill in our time.
That Time When Mazda Teased Us With Modern Version Of The 1967 Cosmo But Didn’t Make It
The idea of a new car that looks like a classic is not a new one, as many carmakers and design studios have been romanticizing it for a long time. However, it became most obvious around the early 2000s, with cars like the muscle car trio – the Mustang, Camaro, Challenger, and cars like the Mini Cooper and Fiat 500, only to name a few. That said, while many of these concepts went into production, others did not. Such is the case with the 2002 Mazda Cosmo 21, which took the Miata NB and turned it into a faithful representation of the first Mazda to use a Wankel (rotary) engine.
2021 CUPRA Tavascan Extreme E Concept
Who said electric cars can’t be fun, and most importantly, who said CUPRA is not going to survive? In fact it did survive, and is doing more than that: it is impressing the world with every car it unveils.
Its last creation - the Tavascan Extreme E Concept - is a 100% concept car built with off-roading in mind. It also offers a second glimpse to the CUPRA’s future Tavascan - or, the company’s second 100% electric model after the Born announced a few months ago. As a reminder, we got a first look at the Tavascan back in 2019 when a concept with the same name was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
