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
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.

Frankly, I think the BMW M2 was pretty close to perfect from the minute it first turned up in 2015. But that certainly didn’t stop BMW from trying to improve upon it by giving it more power and reducing weight.

2021 Jaguar F-TYPE Gets a New Face and New Tech
As an owner of an original 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE, I’m particularly fond of Ian Callum’s nearly perfect original design. But as time marches on, so must automotive design. For the 2021 model year, the F-TYPE gets a new face, upgraded technology, and the high-end R models even get a performance boost. The front end of the new model features the most noticeable changes, with the original, vertically-oriented HID headlights replaced with new LED lights with a slim horizontal design.
