Volkswagen e-BULLI Is a Classic VW Bus with an Electric Heart

Volkswagen e-BULLI Is a Classic VW Bus with an Electric Heart
The Volkswagen Type 2 bus is one of the most iconic and collectible vehicles of all time. It was quirky and slow, but incredibly charming, and actually pretty versatile. Now, Volkswagen has transformed one of these classic microvans into a modern electric vehicle. The e-BULLI concept vehicle started out life as a 1966 Type 1 Samba bus, and from the outside, it looks much like it did when it rolled off the assembly line in Hanover, Germany more than 50 years ago.

Concepts from Future Past: 2006 Giugiaro Concept Mustang
Hot on the heels of its retro-infused 5th generation Mustang (which lived from 2005 to 2014), Ford showed off this gorgeous vision for a future pony car, designed by Fabrizio Giugiaro of Italdesign Giugiaro. This one-off Mustang concept was unabashedly European in style, with its Lambo-esque scissor doors, and beautifully sculpted, curvaceous rear end.

Alpine SportsX Concept Is a Lifted and Widened A110

Alpine SportsX Concept Is a Lifted and Widened A110
I’ve always wanted one of those concept sports cars that was lifted a bit and tricked out for rally racing. I think they’re some of the cooler looking vehicles out there, even if they’re not the most nimble on a paved track.

Concepts from Future Past: Toyota RV-2

Concepts from Future Past: Toyota RV-2
While most of today’s concept cars envision improvements to the driving experience itself, on occasion vehicles are seen as having a broader impact on one’s lifestyle. That’s the case with this unusual Toyota concept from the early 1970s.

Concepts from Future Past: 1979 Colani Sea Ranger

Concepts from Future Past: 1979 Colani Sea Ranger
The amphibious Colani Sea Ranger was built on top of a Mercedes-Benz Unimog. Or at least put together using the parts from one; it’s certainly no longer recognizable as a Unimog. The Sea Ranger is part off-road utility vehicle, part camper, and part amphibious watercraft.

Ford GT90: The Greatest Supercar That Never Was?

Ford GT90: The Greatest Supercar That Never Was?
I kind of consider the 1990s my “lost decade” – I didn’t really care for mainstream music, movies, or cars during most of that period. Sure, there were some outliers like Radiohead, The Matrix, and the Nissan Skyline, but for the most part, it was a pretty crappy decade for most things.

Concepts from Future Past: 1970 BMW 2002 Tii Garmisch

Concepts from Future Past: 1970 BMW 2002 Tii Garmisch
Throughout the years, BMWs have had certain design elements which are pretty universal – from the blue, black, and white round hood badge to some kind of kidney-shaped grille. One of the more interesting BMW designs I’ve ever seen is the BMW 2002 Tii Garmisch, a one-off vehicle designed by Italian firm Bertone for the German automaker. Originally revealed in 1970, the Garmisch was a boxy 2+2 coupe with distinctively Italian looks.

Hyundai Veloster N Performance Concept Heads to SEMA

Hyundai Veloster N Performance Concept Heads to SEMA
I’m already a very big fan of the Hyundai Veloster N. With prices starting below $30,000 for the 275hp model, I think it represents the best performance bang for the buck of any new car you can buy today.

Let’s take a trip back to the 1950s, a time when aviation was on the rise, and rocket ships were the future. This set the perfect stage for the design of sleek and streamlined vehicles, some of which looked like they could launch into space.

Lexus LF-30 Electrified Concept: This is What 2030 Looks Like
I’m here at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, meeting with Toyota and Lexus to see what sort of new vehicles they have in the works. A big focus of this year’s show is on the future of mobility, so it’s less about what cars you can buy in 2020, but where technology is headed in the years beyond.

2021 Toyota Mirai Concept Is a Major Upgrade
First revealed back in 2013, the Toyota Mirai is innovative in that it’s one of the few consumer vehicles on the road which runs on hydrogen power. Its systems then convert that hydrogen to electricity to drive its motor, and emitting only a little bit of water as its sole tailpipe emission.

Concepts from Future Past: The Pontiac Stinger
Long before Kia put the name to good use, Pontiac took us to the “excitement edge” with its futuristic Stinger. The 1989 Stinger Concept was created as a sporty, recreational vehicle, and revealed just one year after the Pontiac Banshee concept.
