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.
The Most Aerodynamic Cars Ever Made (Including Concepts)
Alright, we get it, the great Enzo Ferrari believed aerodynamics are for people who can’t build engines but when you’re trying to move an object with as little energy as possible, a streamlined body is crucial to the task. So whether they’ve been built to compete in green races or with the intent to serve the masses or break speed records, these care are the ultimate masters of aerodynamics.
This Dacia Sentry Rendering Envisions An Unlikely Porsche Taycan Fighter
While Dacia is indeed planning to go electric, it will do so with a crossover-y model heavily inspired by the Spring concept car. So it goes without saying that a fully-blown, out-and-out performance EV wearing the Dacia badge is out of the question. But one can dream, right?
If This Porsche Cyber 677 Concept Is the Future Porsche 911, We Need a Time Machine
Porsche 911 fans are always given a hard time. Be it because they love a "glorified Beetle" or because "that thing’s been looking the same since the days my grandma was in kindergarten", 911 fans rarely catch a break and it’s all simply because they love a car as anachronic as Stuttgart’s most famous automotive export (sorry Mercedes). But Paul Breshke took it upon himself to change all that and, in doing so, he made the 911 feel novel again. Behold the Porsche Cyber 677 Concept.
This Chevy C8 Corvette Roadster Is The Limited Edition Vette the World Needs
We don’t know about you, but for us, when the words Chevrolet and roadster are joined together, a mental picture of the Chevy SSR lights up our brains. As wild and daring as the SSR was, that contraption - a retractable hard-top convertible pickup truck - has nothing to do with the C8 Corvette roadster renders you’re about to see.
This Rendering of a 993-Gen Porsche 911 Safari Will Make You Question Your Automotive Beliefs
Old Porsche 911s turned rally cars are not a novelty. We’ve seen a couple of them over the years and all we can say is that our garages wouldn’t mind one. Actually, Porsche built such contraptions in the early 1970s, after it got out of racing in the WRC, and while there are no such plans for the future, here’s a batch of 993-based 911 ’Safari’ renders that might turn into reality should someone crazy enough see them.
This Modern Interpretation of the Dodge Deora Concept Just Made the Future Chevy El Camino Weap in Fear
Unveiled in 1967, the Dodge Deora is one of the craziest concept cars of the 1960s. Based on the Dodge A100 pickup, the Deora was built by brothers Mike and Larry Alexander and showcased at the 1967 Detroit Autorama, where it won no fewer than nine awards. Chrysler liked the design so much that it leased the truck for two years to display alongside its factory concept cars. The Deora inspired a Hot Wheels model car and resurfaced in the early 2000s when it was restored. The Deora was auctioned off for $324,500 in 2009. More than ten years later, the Deora was reimagined as a modern concept car.
What Is MG Hinting At With This Cyberster Concept Rendering?
2019 saw MG launch a facelifted version of the ZS crossover, as well as an all-electric variant of the small SUV. Since then, the Chinese-owned British marque has been rather quiet. But come May and SAIC Design Advanced London, the first in charge of MG’s auto designs, revealed renderings of a very intriguing concept car. It’s called the Cyberster and unlike recent MG vehicles, it’s not an affordable hatchback or a crossover. A sleek and somewhat futuristic roadster, the Cyberster previews an electric sports car with infinite headroom.
Times are changing in the car world and it’s not just the small guys that are force to adapt. Change acts as an equalizer more often then not and when it comes to electrification, those that play in the stratospheric leagues of the industry must evolve to, well, keep playing.
Take Bugatti. The carmaker was adamant that it won’t build hybrids and instead focus on pure electric cars. When will that happen nobody knows. However, we expect Bugatti to give its ICE era a proper swan song, one that could look like the La Finale design study, envisioned with a V-12 engine instead of Bugatti’s signature W-16 powerhouse.
How Does This Rendering of the BMW X8 M Sit on Your Conscience?
It seems like these days there’s a rounded-rear version for every premium SUV out there. The X3 has the X4, the X5 has the X6, the GLE has the GLE Coupe, the Cayenne has the Cayenne Coupe and so on. You get the point.
Coming back to BMW’s Xs, its largest SUV to date - the X7 - is in need of a hunchback brother and that might come in the shape of the X8.But one designer went ahead and concocted what he calls the X8 M.
The Tesla Cybertruck Would Make a Pretty Awesome Armored Truck
The Tesla Cybertruck is a one-of-a-kind truck that features numerous unique selling points. Right from its shape to its exoskeleton, everything is unconventional. Tesla has also made use of cold-rolled steel for the body, which is the same material used by SpaceX.
Although these ‘strong features’ might seem a little too much for a standard civilian truck, there’s no denying that it has the potential to be used as an armored truck for different forces. Peisert Design has envisioned the truck as a civil armored truck, transport truck, combat truck, and reconnaissance truck.
Digitally Tuned Ford Mach-E Is Closer To the Notion of a Mustang
There’ve been a lot of voices speaking against Ford’s decision to use the Mustang moniker on a crossover, be it a fully-electric one, in tandem with a second name, derived from the iconic Mach 1 nameplate. Some say Ford’s naming gamble might cost the company in the long term, but we’re not here to discuss that.
Today, we stumbled upon a digitally rendered Mach-E that in our view, is closer to what the Mustang name entails. Albeit still a crossover, you’ll see that the vehicle tweaked tastefully by Abimelec Design oozes a lot more sportiness than the real Mach-E EV.
AMG GT Silver Echo: A Modern Mercedes SLR Rendering That Pays Tribute to Stirling Moss
Legendary racing driver Sir Stirling Moss passed away on April 12, at the age of 90. The Brit became an icon in the 1950s when he raced in Formula One and competed in major series that included the 24 Hours of Le Mans, 12 Hours of Sebring, and Mille Miglia. He won important races for a variety of automakers, including the 1955 Mille Miglia in a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR. In the same year, he raced the iconic Mercedes W196 in Formula One. This collaboration was revived in 2009 when Moss helped the Germany company create the limited-edition Mercedes SLR McLaren Stirling Moss. 11 years have passed since then, and auto design Costas Phouphoullides rendered a modern version of that car to pay one final tribute to Moss.
