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.

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.

Concepts from Future Past: 1954 DeSoto Adventurer II
Having operated from 1928 to 1961, Chrysler’s DeSoto nameplate is but a distant memory, though the company did manage to turn out quite a few cars during its lifetime. One of the more impressive designs to emerge from DeSoto was the Adventurer II, a concept car shown in 1954.

Concepts from Future Past: Porsche Tapiro

Concepts from Future Past: Porsche Tapiro
Traveling to auto shows, we get to see a whole lot of cool and unusual concept cars. They may serve as inspiration for production vehicles, but the majority of them never go into production themselves. Once such concept was the Porsche Tapiro. This gull-winged car was built for the 1970 Turin Motor Show, and shared some core elements with the Porsche 914/6.

Concepts from Future Past: 2005 Holden EFIJY
While most automotive concepts look forward to the future, or at most embrace a few key design attributes of classic cars, this unusual concept car from GM’s Australian Holden division was almost entirely a retro-style hot rod.

Concepts from Future Past: 1969 Fiat Abarth 2000 Scorpione

Concepts from Future Past: 1969 Fiat Abarth 2000 Scorpione
Designed by the inimitable Pininfarina, this gorgeous concept car embraced the best of Italian sportscar design, while sporting the almost always daft underpinnings of Fiat’s Abarth division. The one-off prototype was based on the chassis of a Fiat Abarth 2000 Sport Spider, but clearly had a dramatically more impressive body design than its sibling.

Artist Renders Toyota GR Supra Shooting Brake Concept
Having spent some time behind the wheel of the new 2020 GR Supra, I proclaim myself among the fans of Toyota and BMW’s coupe collaboration. It’s offers up a wonderfully pure driving experience, has an awesome exhaust note, and can powerslide through corners with the best of them.
