Porsche Project 411 Concept - A Look to the Porsche 911’s Future?
Big automakers usually employ tremendously skilled designers, but production cars are rarely as exotic as the concept many of these artists create. There are many reasons for that, and most of them have to do with practicality and costs. Independent designers, on the other hand, aren’t limited by regulations like these, so they often produce more extreme and spectacular digital models. The Project 411 by Mossawi Studios is one of them. A tribute to the iconic Porsche 911 Spyder, it could be a glimpse into the 911’s distant future.
The Nissan Z Proto and 400Z Could Have Looked Like a Juke
Rumored for quite a few years, the Nissan 400Z is still a long time away, but the Japanese firm just unveiled the Z Proto. As the name suggests, it’s some sort of concept/prototype that previews the upcoming 400Z. It’s heavily inspired by the iconic 240Z, but it also features styling cues from the 300ZX and from the outgoing 370Z. But Nissan also released a video that showcases the design development of the Z Proto, and it seems that the Japanese brand considered various options, including one that’s inspired by the old Juke.
1981 Ford Bronco Montana Lobo Concept
At the 1981 Chicago Auto Show, Ford unveiled a rather unusual concept called the Montana Lobo. It seemed too radical for its time and felt as though it was taken straight out of a sci-fi movie. It broke all the perceptions associated with a rugged off-roader like the Bronco. The company came up with this unusual concept to get in the flow with the growing popularity of smaller pickup trucks and SUVs. Although it didn’t make it to production and none of the ideas or design elements were incorporated in the future models, the Bronco Montana Lobo goes down in the history books as one of the most interesting concepts Ford has ever built.
2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Concept
The 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is a production-ready concept vehicle that previews the arrival of the modern Jeep Wagoneer. Set to arrive in 2021, the SUV will revive the Wagoneer name after 30 years. Described as a "premium extension" of the Jeep brand, the SUV will become available in two versions, the Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer, with the latter to offer more space and more luxury.
The Grand Wagoneer concept looks ready to go into production, but Jeep will probably drop a few fancy features before it puts the SUV on the assembly line. Let’s have a closer look at the three-row hauler in the review below.
This Jeep Wagoneer Woody Will Give You the Feels of the 1980s All Over Again
The Grand Wagoneer Concept looks every bit like the production model that we can expect to see in dealership showrooms in 2022. But 2022 is still a ways away, and as we wait for the production-spec Grand Wagoneer to arrive, we can spend that time admiring all the renderings that have already been released, a lot of which show the hulking SUV in different forms and functions.
One rendering, in particular, caught our attention, not because of who created it — Abimelec Design — but because of what he created. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the Jeep Grand Wagoneer Woody, a creation so nostalgic you can smell the air of the 1980s from your computer screens.
Eight cool Jeep Grand Wagoneer concept features that won’t make it on the production model
After years of rumors and speculation, Jeep finally revived the iconic Wagoneer though the Grand Wagoneer concept. The production model won’t arrive until 2021, but this so-called concept vehicle doesn’t seem very different from what we will get in showrooms. However, it showcases a range of cool and fancy features that most likely won’t make in on the production model, despite its luxury-oriented status. Here’s a list of items you should expect to find on the upcoming, factory-built Wagoneer.
Jeep Unveils The Grand Wagoneer Concept With Bold Exterior and a Technology-Rich Cabin
After a number of teasers and glimpses of the SUV, the Jeep Wagoneer is finally here. The company has unveiled the concept Jeep Wagoneer digitally. The SUV was in production for three decades, between 1961 to 1981, it was then sent to an exile only to be brought back again for a second run.
Test mules were spotted in 2019 and the automaker confirmed that the nameplate is being reincarnated for the same role it played in the last century. Yesteryear monikers generally receive a lot more attention than new names but also have a lot of hopes pinned on them.
Given how competitive the SUV segment has become in the recent past, can the Wagoneer stand out, or will it become just another name that didn’t bring in volumes for the automaker?
Toyota’s Name For Its New Moon-Ready Off-Roader Is Far From Surprising
Toyota is a company deeply rooted in habit. It’s been steadily pushing hydrogen as an alternative fuel source, and let’s not even get started on how it has to slap a TRD badge on almost everything it can. This “habit” in mind, however, is exactly why the name Toyota has chosen for its new moon-ready off-roader makes so much sense that we can’t believe we didn’t predict it. It’s called the Lunar Cruiser, and while that makes sense from a general perspective, there’s actually more thought that went into the name than you might think.
2023 Cadillac Lyriq EV – Futuristic Styling and Tech That Won’t Make It To Production
After some light teasing, Cadillac has finally revealed the Lyriq SUV, but in its current form, it’s just a show car, and the debut video was littered with reminders that not all the technology you see will make it to the production model. With that tidbit out of the way, Cadillac should be commended for showing up late to the EV party in style, most of which is thanks to that new Ultium long-range battery and a new modular electric platform that will pave the way for all of GM to build countless EVs.
This Slammed Ford Bronco-GT Supercar Mashup is Oddly Satisfying
Let’s put this in a very simple way. The Bronco is an off-roader. The GT is a supercar meant to stay on the tarmac. These two segments run parallel and can never intersect. But, thanks to some geniuses, we now have a pictorial representation of what these two would like when mashed up, and surprisingly, we didn’t have the urge to break our screens. Timothy, who goes by ‘Adry53customs’ on Instagram, uploaded a few renderings of the Bronco-GT lovechild, which happens to be a hot rod, and it is satisfying.
If You Have Enough Money, You Can Have Anything - Even a Factory-Built Toyota RAV4 Limo
Regular people like to work on their hobbies once the 9-to-5 program is over and done with. Not the industrious folks over at Toyota’s Takaoka plant in Japan. No, sir. There, 200 members of the staff decided to use their off-hours time to put together this Toyota RAV4 limo.
Skoda Slavia Concept - One Affordable Roadster We’d Love to See Come to Life
Skoda’s current vehicle lineup includes three hatchbacks, two sedans, and three SUVs. It’s far from spectacular, but that’s what Skoda has been about (mostly) since its inception more than 100 years ago.
But the Czech automaker just rolled out a concept that proves it can design dynamic and emotive two-door cars. It’s called the Slavia and it’s an exciting roadster version of the Scala hatchback.
Building the Mustang Mach-E 1400 Was More About Learning Than Being Cool
Ever since Ford introduced the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 all-electric Mustang, which was essentially a potent electric drag car, we’ve been itching for a performance-oriented Mustang EV to be born. We got as close as the Mustang Mach-E which is, as far as I’m concerned, not a Mustang, but that has been the extent of it. Then, almost out of nowhere, Ford threw us a bone in the Mustang Mach-E 1400. It’s still not a proper Mustang, but it features 1400 horsepower just like the Cobra Jet 1400, and it’s one mean electric machine. Despite its ability to eat tires like I eat cookies, the purpose of the Mach-E 1400 was to help Ford learn while showcasing what the company is capable of.
Jeep Unveils Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept Just So It Can Ruin Ford’s Party Tonight
We’re less than 10 hours away from the much-anticipated 2021 Ford Bronco’s unveiling, and its primary rival, the Jeep Wrangler, has decided to gatecrash the party. The company teased a 6.4-liter, V-8 HEMI engine just a couple of days ago in a Facebook post and now it has confirmed its arrival in the form of the Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept.
Ford has been messing around with the Jeep ever since the Bronco was announced, so the news of the Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept couldn’t have come at a better time. Kudos to Jeep for sneaking under the limelight and stealing it from the Bronco just hours before the grand reveal. Point: Jeep.
The Story Behind the Ford GT40 Concept Shows How Far Ford Had to Go To Get It Right
Ford was all about revisiting its illustrious past two decades ago when the Ford GT40 Concept was conceived. However, unlike other throw-back prototypes such as the Forty-Nine, the GT40 Concept actually spawned a production model in the 2005 GT that retained many of the exterior design features of the concept car.
As always, though, the road from the sketchbook of a designer to a finished, full-size prototype, and then to production is long and arduous and, this time, it all started with a look over in the yard of an old nemesis of Ford’s.
2020 Audi Q4 Sportback E-Tron Concept
Audi is arguably the most active brand today when it comes to EVs. The company had announced a bold claim that it will launch 20 new EVs by 2025, and surprisingly, it seems to be on track.
The German automaker has added yet another vehicle to its EV portfolio, the Q4 Sportback e-tron, which happens to be its seventh fully electric vehicle. The company revealed the concept version for now and the real deal is expected to go on sale sometime in 2021.
This RX Vision - 918 Mashup Is Proof Mazda and Porsche Should Build a Hypercar Together
It’s easy to get yourself lost in the sea of digital renders popping up these days on the interwebs. With artists becoming more and more visible, we’re constantly bombarded with wannabe futuristic vehicles, modern twists brought to classic cars, or simply all-new concoctions that are never going to see daylight in real life.
Now try to guess where this Mazda RX Vision GT3 - Porsche 918 Spyderhodgepodge fits in.
This Mustang Mach 1, Ford Ranchero Mashup is Exactly the Car Ford Needs to Produce
Pickup trucks have been manufactured since the early days of the Ford Model T, and by the 1950s, they had become so popular that many buyers purchased them for lifestyle rather than utilitarian reasons. As a result, Detroit-based automakers introduced car-based truck, the most iconic being the Ford Ranchero and the Chevrolet El Camino, launched in 1957 and 1959, respectively. Although these kind of two-door, car-based trucks wouldn’t make much financial sense in the modern era, some enthusiasts are still hoping that the Ranchero and the El Camino will return after many decades. It probably won’t happen, but Youtuber TheSketchMonkey just rendered a modern Ranchero based on the Mustang that Ford should really look into.
Big-Wing Porsche 935 Looks Ready to Storm Pikes Peak
This Rendering of a Mazda MX-5 Wagon Looks Painfully Like the BMW Z3 M Coupe
When it comes to quirky BMWs, the Z3 M Coupe certainly takes the cake. That’s why this render of a Mazda Miata MX-5 in shooting brake-ish attire caught our eye instantly.
No, this is not the work of Mazda and in all fairness, we wouldn’t want it to be in the first place. Here’s why.
The 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette With C1 Elements Looks Oddly Satisfying
Remember how carmakers brag that their latest models pay tribute to their predecessors with reinterpreted vintage design cues? Well, sometimes you need a magnifying glass to see those but here’s a visual artist that really found a neat (and distinguishable) way to bake in C1 Corvette styling elements into the 2020 C8 Corvette.
This Retro Mercedes-Benz SL500 Speedster Sends All the Right 90s Vibes
Once one of the most recognizable Mercedes-Benz cars to roam the roads, the SL might not live for longer in the form we all know and love. Blame that on people having the hots for SUVs and crossovers but also on stricter emissions standards.
The Germans have already axed the range-topping V-12 Mercedes-AMG SL 65 as well as the SL 63, which was made redundant by the AMG GT convertible. So in these uncertain times for the roadster, it’s good to see one of its previous iterations being brought to life as a slammed speedster, albeit in the digital world.
