2019 BMW Z4 M Coupe Could Look Like This
BMW recently lifted the veil off its all-new 2019 Z4 roadster, the sixth-generation Z model (or third-gen Z4) and the most visually striking one yet. However, unlike with the first-gen Z4, this one will get neither a hardtop coupe version nor a hot Z4 M variant.
Arguably the hottest and most discussed car to be unveiled in 2019, the Chevy Corvette C8 remains a mystery, with very little official information to run by as of November. Thankfully, the rumor has provided us some data in recent months and now it’s back with pricing information, placing the mid-engined sports car at $169,900 before options.
Tesla Electric Bike? Where Do I Deposit My Money?
There’s no stopping Elon Musk. After successfully venturing into cars, hyperloops, tunnels, and rockets, he is now planning to build e-bikes as well. Speaking to Recode Decode, Musk hinted that Tesla would probably get into the e-bikes market, which is growing exponentially in the U.S.
It Looks Like BMW May Offer the M3 With a Manual Transmission After All
The new BMW M3 is on its way, as confirmed in a recent rash of spy shots that show the Bavarian rocket ship out for a spot of testing at the Nürburgring. For now, though, specifics aren’t quite nailed down, with the question of two pedals or three providing one of the biggest question marks of them all. Luckily for those of us who prefer a manual, it’s looking like Bimmer isn’t quite ready to ditch the stick shift.
2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Revealed In Social Media Post
If you love a thumping big V-8, tire-shredding RWD power, and all the attitude that goes with it, you’re spoiled for choice. Indeed, there’s no shortage of badass muscle cars out there these days, and now, it looks like Ford is getting in on the fun with a new Mustang Shelby GT500, as revealed in a recent Instagram post by user sinister_lifestyle.
2020 Toyota Supra GR
There are images aplenty of the new Supra, but these days, Toyota’s been testing a race-prepped version of their new sports car at the Nordschleife which we think might be the mule for the upcoming sportier Supra.
With this occasion, we got a chance to get a little closer to the Supra, and we like what we see. For example, we got an eyeful of the interior, with the center stack lacking any sort of camouflage with the big infotainment screen on top of the central attraction. It all seems to be, apart from the racing wheel, pretty much stock, so there’s not much guesswork left to do about how the interior will look, given that some renderings of the interior and exterior were also leaked this week.
Bentley and the RCA Team Up to Sketch the Future of Elegant Motoring
Bentley, one of the world’s most sophisticated and luxurious marques, has collaborated with second-year design students from the Royal College of Arts (RCA) to envision its future. The students were asked, "What will British luxury mean in 2050?" Out of the 24 responses, four were selected by the lecturers at the college and the Bentley Design Team.
Aston Martin Predicts Its First SUV To Become Its Best-Seller
Aston Martin is probably the only automaker to survive without an SUV in its line-up for this long, other than Ferrari. However, the company confirmed an SUV earlier this year, and now it has boldly predicted that this new SUV, dubbed as the DBX, will be its best-selling vehicle after its launch next year. The DBX was showcased in 2015 as a concept car.
Holden’s Bathurst Time Attack Concept Car is a 1-Megawatt Beast!
This new concept car is more than just a development for Holden. This year, Holden marks the 50th anniversary of its first victory at the Bathurst, and also its 70 years since it produced its first car. Dubbed the Time Attack Concept Racer, this car has 1,341 horses to power it. However, Holden has no plans to build it! Funny, right?
2020 BMW 3 Series Touring Rendered
BMW has only just taken the wraps off its all-new G30 3-Series sedan at the Paris Motor Show, but what I want to know is what the estate or wagon version of it is going to look like. So in order to not have to wait until next year when BMW will probably reveal the 3 load lugger, I’ve made my own digital version of it.
New Autonomous Vehicle Rules On the Way
Autonomous vehicles might be exempt in the future from some of the safety standards put in place by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) if changes that accommodate this new type of road vehicle sees the light of day.
Automotive giants such as GM have called for legislative changes that would allow "the full deployment of self-driving vehicles" which, at the moment, have to be equipped with a steering wheel, pedals, and mirrors, although autonomous cars don’t have a driver.
As such, The NHTSA "intends to reconsider the necessity and appropriateness of its current safety standards" as applied to automated vehicles, the U.S. Department of Transportation said in an 80-page update of its principles dubbed "Automated Vehicles 3.0."
2018 Renault K-ZE
Renault is previewing its future mini electric crossover with the K-ZE concept revealed at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. Taking a closer look at the K-ZE, it becomes immediately apparent that it is, in fact, just a dressed up Kwid (which Renault already sells in emerging markets) which has had its internal combustion powertrain swapped out for a full-electric one.
The future electric crossover will look much closer to this concept, than it will to the current Kwid, although it will maintain its basic body shape. What will set it apart visually more significantly are the new, redesigned front and rear fascias, as well as various details around the exterior. It also promises to offer “class leading” range for a vehicle in its size-bracket.
Trump to Reshuffle Autonomous Test Sites, Preps New Self-Driving Initiative
Trump is all set to change the ten sites picked by the Obama administration to be nation’s breeding ground of self-driving car testing. The sites that were officially designated as federally-recognized "automated vehicle proving grounds," will soon have to compete with the rest of the country to win the spot. This was said by two people working on the matter, but preferred to remain anonymous.
New Hyperloop Pod Unveiled, Could Go Into Service Next Year
Meet the world’s first full-scale hyperloop capsule, called Quintero One (quintero in Spanish means “fifth”), a 32-meter/105-foot plane without wings or windows, for lack of a better comparison. It’s expected to be “optimized and ready for passengers” in 2019, and its makers are touting it as possibly the safest form of transportation in the world.
Bugatti Could Flip the Super Luxury SUV Market If It Green Lights an SUV
Just when you thought the super-luxury SUV market calmed down with Lamborghini, Bentley, and Rolls-Royce in the fold, Bugatti could enter the fray and turn the whole segment upside down. That’s the word that came out from no less than Bugatti’s own president, Stephan Winkelmann, at the Paris Motor Show. No confirmation has been made on the matter, but Bugatti is legitimately thinking about expanding its lineup, and an SUV reportedly has the inside track on getting greenlit if the company decides to give the Chiron hypercar a stablemate.
