The MG Cyberster Is Officially Heading To Production

The MG Cyberster Is Officially Heading To Production

It seems MG is going back to making sports cars after all as the MG Cyberster has garnered enough interest to enter production.

Not long ago, we shared information about MG’s return to making exciting sports cars. The Cyberster, as they call it, is a futuristic concept, with a retro throwback. What isn’t retro is the drivetrain, as the roadster will be powered by electricity. In any case, the MG Cyberster boasts some pretty epic figures. Although we still don’t know all the details, we do know that the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint will happen in under 3.0 seconds. In addition, you’ll be able to drive 500 miles (800 km) on a single charge – more than any other EV currently on sale.

Apple Design Cues On Modern Cars? This Is Just Weird

Apple Design Cues On Modern Cars? This Is Just Weird

These cars featuring Apple design cues give some idea to what a full Apple lineup might look like

Cars and smart devices may sound like an odd mix, but nowadays pretty much any big corporation is having a go at making cars. Some years ago Google tried it and now manufacturers like Huawei have announced their first car. We also know that Apple is working on a car and is aiming for a debut in 2024. But what happens when you take already existing cars that we know, and apply design elements, taken straight off the Apple product lineup? These five renderings answer the question.

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse Ralliart - What Mitsubishi's Sports Car Should Have Been

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse Ralliart - What Mitsubishi’s Sports Car Should Have Been

This Mitsubishi Eclipse is basically a two-door Evolution, and the fate of the Eclipse could have been different.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse was one of the most praised compact Japanese sports coupes. Sadly, the third generation of the car (2000-2005) was a letdown, compared to the success of the previous two. The fourth-generation was significantly better, but shared too many similarities with the previous model, like the lazy transversely-mounted V-6, which at least had power this time and the front-wheel-drive layout.

Although the 3.8-liter 24-valve SOHC V-6 had a decent output, everyone wanted it to be the sleeker two-door equivalent of the Lancer Evolution. This meant a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four and all-wheel-drive. Apparently, the specialists from Mitsubishi’s Ralliart department thought the same, which is why they got to work on making the Eclipse we all wanted. This resulted in the, introduced at the 2005 NAIAS, Mitsubishi Eclipse Ralliart Concept.

Forget The Mach-E – This Is the Electric Ford Mustang We Deserved

Forget The Mach-E – This Is the Electric Ford Mustang We Deserved

Ford’s Transition Into EVs Hasn’t Been Easy, and We’re Still Not Sure It’s Made The Right Decision

Remember back when Ford thought it was a good idea to slap the iconic Mach 1 name on an EV SUV? Well, it didn’t go out so well and people only stopped short of rioting in the streets, eventually prompting Ford to back pedal and switch to the name Mach E instead. The name wasn’t much better and is still referred to by some as disgracing what the Mach name stood for, but things have pretty much settled down into acceptance. But, is this really the electric Mustang that we deserved? Well, after seeing this rendering, we’re willing to bet you’ll say we deserved better.

This Is the Sedan That McLaren Unfortunately Won’t Build

We hope McLaren keeps this on the back burner for when sedans become fashionable again

Sedans have been losing popularity even since the first SUV hit the market and that decline is still ongoing today. At the same time, a sedan kind of goes against the idea of a pure-breed sports car/supercar, which is why McLaren will never build one just like it won’t build a crossover or an SUV. But what if?

1985 Buick Wildcat Concept - The Car You've Definitely Forgotten About

1985 Buick Wildcat Concept - The Car You’ve Definitely Forgotten About

Here’s what we know about Buick’s forgotten mid-engine concept car

Cars of the 1980s often stand out as some of the most exaggerated and unapologetic when it comes to their styling. Most of you probably know about cars like the Ferrari Testarossa and Lamborghini Countach, which was actually conceived in the 1970s. Although these are some of the poster cars from that era, there were many other interesting designs that never made it to production. In 1985, Buick decided to show us what their interpretation of a mid-engine supercar would look like. This endeavor spawned the 1985 Buick Wildcat Concept, which was undeservingly forgotten, like many others.
