Best Cars Of 2021
With the pandemic still looming over our heads, 2021 was a pretty action-packed year for the auto industry. Sure, you had challenges, with automakers having to contend with issues like chip shortages, causing delays to consumers. But regardless, the show had to go on and we got some pretty cool cars making their debut, predominantly towards the latter half of 2021.
Let’s get one thing out of the way, 2021 really was also the year, when the market as a whole began to embrace EV’s and you could see several automakers both the legacy as well as EV startups bring several new models to market. Having said that, we did see some pretty cool ICE cars, also make their debut. Now there were several cars that made headlines this year, it was very difficult to pick out the best ones, but the cars on this list definitely stood out. Here’s our list of some of the most highly anticipated and important cars that were unveiled in 2021.
Porsche and Ford Team Up to Build a New Luxury Pickup Truck
As if the world hasn’t been turned upside down as it is, we’re now receiving word that Porsche is actually developing a pickup truck through its newly announced partnership with Ford. This pickup truck will actually be positioned in the lower range of Porsche’s offerings and is expected to slot somewhere below the Macan – and you thought 2021 couldn’t get any worse.
Meet Traycan, the Porsche Pickup Truck We Will Never Get
A truck is all that Porsche is missing from its current lineup. Even so, it’s extremely hard to imagine that even in its wildest corporate dreams the carmaker would think of coming to the market with a pickup truck, even in the context where a lot of brands are rushing to jump the e-truck market.
You’ve go Tesla, of course, with the Cybertruck, then there’s Rivian and its R1T, Bollinger B2, and the future all-electric Ford F-150, plus some other equally interesting contraptions. So, where would a
based pickup truck slot in, then?
Now that Porsche has unveiled their first ever sedan and have made it clear that they have intentions to build a Golf competitor, why not think up up of other models the luxury stud could delve into? In fact, why not think of the next big thing; a Porsche pickup truck. What better way to transport all kinds of luxury products than with a truck bearing the Stuttgart Coat of Arms? Well, we can’t say we thought of this one all by ourselves. The idea actually comes from Nouphone J. Bansasine who designed the Porsche TranSport - the fourth version in the Porsche line-up (next to a sedan, SUV and the sports car model).
The Transport design looks very Porschesque with its smooth lines and exotic appearance. Not something anyone would want to carry sod around in! We don’t know about everyone out there, but it would be pretty interesting to carry our tools around in a luxury pickup.
