Genesis has finally entered the high-volume segment with a premium, intimidating offering

Genesis has finally stepped on the A-pedal. Launches are happening often now, and we’d like to see the trend continue because the products coming out of the oven are pretty good. Hyundai’s luxury brand recently unveiled the GV80 SUV, and now it has taken the wraps off its sporty crossover, the GV70.

Since these cars are not required to cover all tedious requirements a production version has to, the designers can go crazy with their creativity.

It’s no surprise then that concept cars are often the biggest head turners at car shows. Although every car brand has its own portfolio of interesting concepts, some of the most epic automotive art comes from the USA. Sadly, for one reason or another, many of these aesthetic and technological marvels remained prototypes. Here are some of the greatest American cars that never made it into production.

Forget The Drama - SSC Should Just Run the Tuatara Speed Record Again

Is SSC lying about the Tuatara’s 316-mph speed record?

SSC made headlines earlier this month when it announced that it had set a new world record for production cars with the Tuatara.

The company issued a follow-up statement, but it did not address the errors discovered in its videos. Should SSC run a new record-setting attempt?
