alpine-racing-concept

The storied Renault Alpine is back, at least in concept form. The iconic sports car that dominated rally and road racing for a number of years, was nostalgically revived in 2012 (as a concept), in 2015 (as a concept again), and closer to production in 2016, much to the excitement of the enthusiast community.

This Small, Saab SUV Could Have Saved the Brand

saab-9-2-concept

China; that’s where Saab is right now. The former Swedish sweetheart went the way of the dodo, only to be revived by some Chinese businessmen with aspirations of an all-electric future and stacks upon stacks of cash (which has yet to come to fruition, mind you). Continue Reading »

Chevrolet ‘Jolt’ Makes the Case For An Affordable Electric Coupe

TRU 140S, one of Chevrolet's concept vehicles from the 2012 North American International Auto Show is a front-wheel-drive, “affordable exotic” four-seat sporty coupe. The sleek, sculptural, three door hatchback TRU 140S was designed to be an attractive yet affordable sports car. Shown with matte white with Chevy performance chrome wheels with crossflag emblems, the TRU 140S looks confident, expensive and fast.

Yesterday someone with too much time on their hands launched a website dedicated to the new Chevrolet Jolt EV (ChevyJoltEV.com). One problem: the Chevrolet Jolt EV doesn’t exist, it’s a clever idea thought up by a marketing guy—that doesn’t work for Chevy, mind you—in hopes that execs would see his plea and immediately order the project.

What’s longer than a football field, made by General Motors but rarer than a Bugatti, and lives an unloved life in middle America? The GM Aerotrain. While we only get fleeting glimpses at concept cars from the American auto giant before most of them are whisked away to the Heritage Collection warehouse, two concept trains from the 1950s are substantially more accessible.

There are plenty of reasons you should be excited about the future; hoverboards and self-tying shoes, for example.
