Here’s What the 1994 Ford Mustang Cosworth From An Alternate Universe Looks Like
We know we’ve been bombarding you with a lot of Subaru BRZ-related content lately especially of the how-would-it-look-in-STI-clothes variety, so let’s switch it up a little, shall we?
Just check out this 1994 Ford Mustang Cosworth digital unicorn that Abimelec Arellano created and somehow managed to flawlessly piece together. I mean, come on, this looks like it’s fresh out of an unpublished, secret book of Blue Oval concepts that never made it into production.
The Maserati Rekall Can Become a Reality Only If You’re Willing to Pay for It
We feel forced to interrupt our usual schedule for an absolute gem of a post uploaded on Instagram by Maserati Fuoriserie, the Italian carmaker’s arm that handles the sort of personalization that usually ends up in one-of-a-kind cars for supposedly very happy and proud customers.
In the said post, Maserati is actually asking for help to turn the so-called Rekall into reality and hoping it would spur the interest of (possibly wealthy) wannabe customers, it even dropped five photos of the design study.
1995 Pininfarina Argento Vivo
The automotive world is one of enormous diversity. Quite often designers are given the green light to unleash their imagination giving us some truly amazing stuff. That said, the modern-day regulations has been cracking down harder and harder on the automotive design language, and many amazing concepts remained one-offs. Those with deep enough pockets, however, have a bit more luck than the average person. The Argento Vivo is one of those extremely rare cases where a concept car has been granted production status. Here are nine interesting facts about the unique roadster.
A New Rendering Shows How Much Potential the 2022 Subaru BRZ Really Has
The Subaru BRZ has that sweet cult car status because of the general aura surrounding the Subaru as a car brand. Such popularity is similar to the love other Japanese brands get from the U.S. car-aficionado public - think Toyota or Honda - and whenever these makers drop a new model, the rip curls reaches every corner of the car world and other related areas.
X-Tomi Design’s take on a would-be Subaru BRZ STI hasn’t gone unnoticed so following the same thematic, it’s time to bring a marvellous set of renders to your attention, this time signed by Khyzyl Saleem.
Kia Builds Two Sorento Concepts To Prove Its Wild Nature
Kia’s rise in the car world has been nothing sort of spectacular and we can clearly see it today in cars such as the Telluride or the all-new 2021 Sorento. Speaking of which, the Koreans’ American arm has been brewing two Sorento-based off-road concepts and we can’t get enough of their coolness. Meet the Sorento Yosemite Edition and Zion Edition.
2020 MAD Ford Bronco Sport Badlands Overland Concept
Ford’s recipe for its 2020 SEMA Auto Show lineup was simple. Use popular models in the lineup, give them concept makeovers, and let everyone know about all the custom tuning possibilities that can be done to these models. It doesn’t come as a surprise that, in addition to the Ranger and the F-150 trucks, Ford chose the Bronco to its SEMA lineup and created two concepts out of the returning nameplate. One of these concepts is called the MAD Ford Bronco Sport Badlands Overland. Ford teamed with MAD Industries to create this concept, which shows the capacity of Ford’s newest SUV to be as adept in the outdoors as it is on concrete roads. It’s a dream-come-true concept for Bronco fans who have been clamoring for ways to customize the Bronco and turn it into a legitimate 4x4 off-roader.
2021 Ford Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2-Door Concept
The Blue Oval is preparing to unveil a variety of custom builds, including the Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2-Door Concept. Created to showcase the Bronco’s modularity, the concept highlights what amounts to the Bronco Badlands’ ability to act as an urban ride on weekdays and off-road marauder on weekends through the glory of swappable components.
The Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2-Door Concept will be revealed alongside Ford’s other SEMA offerings during the Ford Auto Nights webcast that starts at 8.PM. tonight.
Porsche 960 Turismo: The Car That Made the Porsche Taycan Possible
The Porsche Taycan is one of the coolest looking four-door coupes out there. It’s sleek, aggressive, and it looks as if Porsche actually wanted to create a four-door supercar. Well, the company’s latest release of previously unseen concept cars confirms that what became the Taycan was first conceived as a four-door supercar. And no, I’m not talking about the Mission E concept. The project is much older than that. Meet the 960 Turismo, the true predecessor of the Taycan.
This Audi RS6 GTO Is the Car We All Deserve But Can’t Have
There’s something innate at Volkswagen Group about allowing trainees to develop their own ideas in terms of what a car should look like.
Just look at what Volkswagen has been doing in the past years at Wörthersee, where a wacky Golf is unveiled with clockwork precision every year, and it’s entirely imagined and designed by the brand’s apprentices. And Audi just copied the recipe.
Porsche Should Build a High-Performance Van Already
Porsche recently unveiled several concept cars that it has kept out of sight over the last 15 years. Among them, there’s the Vision Renndienst, an all-electric van that pays tribute to the old vans that Porsche used as support vehicles for its racing program back in the 1950s and 1960s. They were mainly first-generation Volkswagen Microbus vans, usually painted red and labeled "renndienst," which is German for "racing service." The van concept looks surprisingly hot, and given that Porsche already built something similar in the past, maybe it’s time Stuttgart rolls out a production van. Of the high-performance variety, of course.
Porsche Almost Revived the Iconic 904 with a V-2 Diesel Engine
Porsche recently unveiled several design studies and concept cars it has created over the past 15 years, and some of them, including the 904 Living Legend, are downright impressive. Created in 2013, the 904 Living Legend is a tribute to the iconic 904 sports car of the 1960s. Design-wise, the 904 Living Legend is a combination between the modern Cayman and the classic 904, but the drivetrain underneath that sleek body is surprising, to say the least.
The Porsche Vision 920 Is the Street-Legal Le Mans Racer That Could Have Been
Porsche just published "Porsche Unseen," a book that showcases design studies and never-before-seen concept cars from 2005 to 2019. The release unveils a few spectacular designs, including the 919 Street, a road-legal version of the incredible 919 Hybrid race car. But apparently the 919 Street wasn’t Porsche only idea for a streetable hypercar. Porsche also envisioned the Vision 920, a Le Mans racer for the road, also described as its "most extreme vision of a super sports car."
Porsche Should Be Ashamed Of Not Producing These Unseen Concept Cars
Be it a futuristic design, a pre-production model, or a technological showcase, the concept car is now a major part of the automotive world. Tens of concept vehicles are being released every year and many of them are downright spectacular. But the concept cars we see are just a fraction of the concept vehicles that are being designed or built behind closed doors. If you need proof, Porsche just published "Porsche Unseen," a book that showcases design studies from 2005 to 2019. Three of them have been released online as well, and they’re as spectacular as they get.
Amazing European Concepts That Never Made it To Production
The old continent is home to some of the oldest automotive manufacturers. Since the late 19th century, they’ve been churning out legendary vehicles, many of which have become the poster car of their era.
Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing, Lamborghini Miura, Ferrari F40, Porsche 911, Jaguar F-type, McLaren F1, and many others. Each of them has its own contribution to automotive culture. There are those, however, that never made it into production. Nevertheless, they are some of the most epic concepts from European manufacturers that, sadly, never saw the light of day.
Porsche Tinkering with a Minivan Concept is Why the Unseen Campaign is Awesome
Porsche’s “Porsche Unseen” campaign is the gift that keeps on giving. We’ve already seen two teasers of models that never made it to production, and now, the German automaker has dropped the third teaser of what looks to be a concept that goes against everything we thought Porsche stood for. The teaser doesn’t do much in showing the actual car, but a quick edit of the image’s brightness and exposure reveals a car that Porsche describes as a “futuristic vehicle with an autonomous driving mode.” It’s not exactly a pillar of everything that Porsche stands for, is it? There’s more to the teaser, too, specifically what the image editing reveals about its interior. Of all the teasers that Porsche has released for its Porsche Unseen campaign, this one is undoubtedly the most curious of them all.
The Coolest Asian Concepts That Never Made It To Production
Asian manufacturers have long been known to revolutionize the industry, with outside of the box thinking. This, more often than not, results in some pretty interesting concept cars which often steal the show. Sadly, for a car to enter into production it needs to pass certain tedious requirements, like how big the windows or side mirrors should be, or how high the headlights should be positioned.
Needless to say, this makes the job of both the designers and engineers more difficult, which is why many of the Asian concept cars on this list were never mass-produced.
Is This BMW M4 Slaughtered or Innovation At Its Finest?
BMW kind of broke the internet with the new M3 and M4. By slapping the sedan and coupe with the bucktooth grille introduced by the 4 Series, the Bavarians did enough to spark a lot of controversy among gearheads.
Since then, we’ve seen tuning companies trying to capitalize on BMW’s grille by offering kits that decrease those vertical kidneys to more eye-friendly proportions and even big-name designers giving their two cents on it. But maybe the problem wasn’t the grille, but the rest of the car. Maybe the M4 looks better with a more utilitarian vibe to it.
2020 Lynk & Co Zero Concept
Lynk & Co is not exactly popular outside China, but it’s been doing well in the Asian country and it’s looking to expand in the near future. The brand is already selling five different vehicles, which share underpinnings with Volvo, as both Lynk & Co and the Swedish carmaker are owned by Geely. At the 2020 Beijing Auto Show, Lynk & Co unveiled the Zero Concept, a crossover that previews an upcoming production model with an all-electric drivetrain.
2020 Jeep Gladiator Top Dog Concept by Mopar
The SEMA Show is turning out to be quite exciting. Jeep is taking part, obviously, and has come with a concept targeted at hard-core mountain bike enthusiasts. The automaker, along with Mopar, has transformed the 2020 Gladiator pickup truck into a fun concept vehicle for serious mountain bikers. But, what’s catchier about this concept is the number of storage spaces in the customized truck bed. Oh, and also, there’s a built-in hot dog machine. How about that!
2020 Toyota Owner Magazine Overland-Ready Tacoma 4WD
We’re having quite an unusual SEMA Show this year, but that hasn’t deterred automakers from coming up with special off-roading concepts. Toyota is no exception and has teamed up with 4WD Toyota Owner Magazine to develop an Overlanding concept based on the Tacoma. We’ve seen a lot of aftermarket Tacoma builds over the years, but this one stands out for the amount of equipment installed on it.
2020 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Electric Connect And Cruise
After unveiling the E-10 electric concept last year, Chevy has now unveiled a 1977 Blazer K5 electric concept for the SEMA show that previews the company’s crate powertrain future. For a company that didn’t seem to be as vested in electrification as other automakers until recently, this is a very big step. This concept also gives us a peek at the upcoming Electric Connect and Cruise package that’s expected to come sometime next year.
