This one. The original one, the one built as a successor to the legendary E-Type. Or rather, the car that was supposed to be a successor. The car that spent a decade in development before ultimately getting cancelled. Gather round, kids, and let me tell you its story.
This concept by Mercedes-Benz is supposed to represent the future of Mercedes’ electric car division to fight Tesla Motors. “Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche insisted the fully scalable powertrains and architectures inside the Generation EQ would give his company a battery-electric family of an SUV, a sedan, a wagon, a…
I like the Caddy more, but Genesis knows how to make a Lincoln! Wish there was a sort of middle ground. I do like seeing what the upcoming design trends will be.
Here is a picture we drew.
I love concept cars. More of them could/should reach production closer to their concept form. There’s a bunch that immediately come to mind when discussing the topic: Jaguar C-X75, Ford GT90 and Bronco concept (and so many other Ford/Mercury concepts), Lincoln Continental Concept (2002), a bunch of caddies, Chrysler…
This is where volumetric water gets us in Forza 6.
1980 Mustang Concept from Ghia. Wait. 1980? Eighty? This car?
The 1996 Renault Fiftie!
Spotted on gadget blog Engadget, a list of neat-o concept cars that never made it to production. Some of them would never have been appropriate for mass production - I’m looking at you, Ford Nucleon - and some were just plain strange. Enjoy!
It’s common knowledge that automakers change everything when they send a concept car to the production line. So when Nissan sent its Sports Sedan Concept into production as the 2016 Maxima, what did they have to change? How about let’s find out.
Unless there isn't any.
With the New York International Auto Show here, what concept cars are you still waiting to see on the road?
Considering the dramatic rebirth Ford has undergone in the last decade, Lincoln’s comparative lack of direction is pretty surprising. Maybe, though, this new Lincoln Continental Concept represents the re-discovery of something Lincoln’s so desperately needed: an identity.
They have all of the parts floating around to do it. Go after a the trunk enthusiasts and rear-wiper averse, and take their $35k.
With loads of carbon fiber, scissor doors, a hybrid drivetrain, and its mid-engine layout the 2004 Toyota Alessandro Volta Concept was years ahead of its time. It's like Toyota drew a map to hypercar perfection, and let everyone else run with it.
The 2001 Ford Explorer Sportsman concept was built for fishermen, only displays the speed you're driving in Euro jargon and isn't legal for highway use. But right now, for less than the price of a normal street-legal Ford Expedition that tells you how fast you're going in proper miles per hour, you can own it.
...and I'm not talking about some modified version of a production car built for SEMA, either.
1969 Fascination prototype. I'm sure it is stable at high speed.
