What If Pagani Made Its Own Ferrari GTC4-Style Shooting Brake? 18

There aren't a lot of cars on the market today you could truly call a “shooting brake.” The term has traditionally been reserved for three-door wagons, not sporty five-doors like the Mercedes CLA and CLS or Jaguar XF.

Porsche 9e1 Study Envisions An All-Electric Future Hypercar 15

Porsche has said it won’t do another hypercar until the technology has developed to mark a significant leap forward from the 918 Spyder. With the 918 being a hybrid, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to expect its replacement to be powered by an all-electric drivetrain.

One take at the 918 successor is the 9e1, a study from French designer Romain Gauvin, who has drawn inspiration from the inimitable shape of the 911 and applied it to a futuristic electric hypercar concept.

That includes design cues such as a pair of round headlights, a gently rounded nose, a long front hood, an upright windscreen and a rear end sloping down to an enveloping strip of taillights. The muscular rear haunches also look like a suitable evolution of the 911, and Gauvin has even gone so far as to envision placing the main battery pack all the way at the back to preserve the 911’s signature position of the engine.

All in all, it’s futuristic design is definitely suitable for a future hypercar. On the other hand, Porsche prefers evolution rather than revolution, although its designers obviously have more freedom with hypercars than with the glacially evolving 911.

An Electric McLaren Sedan Would Be An Interesting Porsche Mission E Fighter 14

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Electric Vehicles, mclaren, porsche, Renderings on 01 14th, 2018


McLaren is adamant that they won’t build an SUV, as sports cars and supercars are what their brand is all about, but what about a four-door model?

Such a vehicle would inevitably become a more expensive alternative to the Porsche Panamera, or, if it gets a zero-emission powertrain, the upcoming Mission E.

A rendering, posted by Jose Rodriguez Nebreda, shows us how a hypothetical four-door McLaren would look like, and the result is quite good, actually.

Notice that it doesn’t have a lot in common with the new 720S, adopting a unique styling with muscular lines, a very long hood and headlights inspired by the ones in McLaren’s Sports Series range.

If McLaren decides to enter the all-electric super-saloon segment it will have to do battle not just with the Mission E but Aston Martin’s RapidE , too, and of course the all-conquering Tesla Model S. Well, Elon Musk’s company has had the segment to itself for quite some time, so it could use some competition…

2019 Honda Insight Looks Surprisingly Good In Type-R Guise 13
Jan
Posted by Sergiu Tudose in honda, Honda Insight, Hybrids, Renderings on 01 13th, 2018


Even though Honda is unlikely to build a performance-oriented version of the new Insight, we can’t help but give them credit for at least making the new one much more attractive than its predecessor.

As is the case with newly-launched cars, X-Tomi created a rendering of the 2019 Insight, showing how a hypothetical Type R version might look. His list of changes including new bumpers, a rear wing, bigger wheels (and brakes) and a dark grille, mirrors and roof.

The simple fact that this car doesn’t look ridiculous with all this extra stuff on is a testament to the real model’s successful redesign. Also, in case anybody forgot what the Insight used to look like, here’s a reminder. Not one of Honda’s finest moments, was it?

Now, for argument’s sake, let’s just say that Honda does launch an Insight Type-R. The question is, would it be more attractive than the Civic Type-R? Well, they belong in different segments, but the render doesn’t look as over-styled as the Civic Type-R, which some people might actually appreciate.



Peugeot Instinct Landaulet Render Looks Properly Presidential 11

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in concepts, PEUGEOT, Peugeot Concepts, Renderings on 01 11th, 2018


Peugeot unveiled their ultra stylish Instinct Concept during last year’s Geneva Motor Show, and since then, we’ve even learned that several of its styling cues will make the journey over to the all-new 508.

Yet, if you’re going to take that type of design and turn it into a four-door saloon, what can be more stylish than a roofless Landaulet version, such as this one drawn up by designer Jo Zechnas.

It presumably features the same suicide doors as the concept, which means no B-pillar. Otherwise, it’s all angular lines, wide fenders and an aggressive rear end.

We can easily envision heads of state riding in the back of this car, as well as certain wealthy individuals who wouldn’t mind ditching popular luxury badges for something a little bit different.

And if you think this car wouldn’t be comfortable enough, we’ll remind you that the real-life Instinct concept featured optimized seats that could fully recline in order to help occupants rest while the car was in autonomous mode.



Kia’s Bringing A Sleeker New Forte Sedan To Detroit 11

To the growing list of new cars we can look forward to seeing unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show next week, we can now add the Kia Forte sedan.

Previewed in this trio of teaser renderings, the new Forte is slated to replace the current model that was introduced in 2012 and updated for 2017.

The all-new 2019 model has been styled to look more like a scaled-down version of the Stinger, the cab-forward design of the current model giving way to a more swept-back profile.

The Korean automaker points out the fresh take on its signature tiger-nose grille, the aggressive-looking vents in the front bumper, and the sharp-looking headlights at the front end, with indicators separated from the taillights above and a horizontal strip visually broadening the rear end.

The horizontal dashboard design inside aims to give it an airier feel than its compact dimensions would suggest, with a free-standing infotainment screen in the middle and circular air-conditioning vents at the extremes.

The sedan is just one bodystyle in the Forte family, but we can expect that potential successors to the Forte Koup and Forte5 hatchback will follow the four-door’s lead.

Does The World Need A New Mercedes-Benz R-Class? 11
Jan
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in AMG, mercedes, Mercedes AMG, Mercedes R-Class, Renderings on 01 11th, 2018


It’s very unlikely that Mercedes-Benz plans to revive the R-Class, given the current demand for crossovers and SUVs and the fact that the first generation bombed, but what if they did?

Rendering artist Aksyonov Nikita has imagined the luxury people carrier with a more modern design inspired by the latest CLS. Its front end is dominated by a huge grille, with a large 3-pointed star in the middle, and a pair of headlights, with integrated LED DRLs, that mimic those of the new CLS.

Its profile looks like a combination between the discontinued CLS Shooting Brake, the E-Class Estate and the B-Class compact MPV, and while the front end does look appealing, we’re not quite sure about the rest of the car, especially in profile.

If we had to guess, we’d say that the rendering is supposed to depict an AMG version sans the soon-to-be-ubiquitous Panamericana grille. In that case, it would be powered by the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that, in its most potent form (in the AMG E63 S) puts out 612PS (604hp) and 850Nm (627lb-ft) of torque.

Anyway, minivans are out, SUVs and pickup trucks are in, and the first, and in all likelihood last, R-Class was a failure despite being a competent, and quite practical, car, so Mercedes isn’t going to bring it back – period.

Here’s A Bold Face For The Next Renault Clio 9
Jan
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in renault, Renault Clio, Renderings on 01 9th, 2018


While we haven’t seen any prototypes of Renault’s new Clio out in the open yet, the French brand’s recent studies might give us an idea of what’s to come.

Rendering artist Aksyonov Nikita chose to keep it simple, by taking the fourth-gen French supermini and fitting it with the front end of the Symbioz Prototype.

The latter was a zero-emission vehicle, with Level 4 autonomous driving among others, so don’t expect to see that closed grille on the Clio, as its internal combustion engines still need proper ventilation, so if any car could adopt it, that would be the successor of the Zoe.

The shape of the headlights, with the incorporated LED DRLs, might be carried over, though, albeit with a more down-to-earth shape, similar to those that can already be seen on the latest Megane.

We’re still at least one year away from seeing the fifth generation Renault Clio in an official environment, as it’s expected to arrive in 2018.

It will get an entirely new cabin, dominated by a portrait-style touchscreen infotainment system, and fitted with better quality materials, which will up the game for its direct rivals such as the Volkswagen Polo and Ford Fiesta.

The engine lineup will include the usual small petrol units, and probably mild hybrids too, but in a surprising move, Renault hasn’t decided yet whether it will offer the Clio Mk5 with diesel powertrains.

Upcoming VW I.D Cross Rendered In Production Guise 8
Jan
Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Electric Vehicles, Renderings, VW, VW Concepts on 01 8th, 2018


We’re still a couple of years away from experiencing the full effect of VW’s all-electric offensive upon the automotive landscape, which will definitely include the I.D Cross.

In case you can’t tell from its name, it’s an all-electric crossover, previewed last year at the Shanghai Auto Show by the I.D Crozz Concept.

The I.D Crozz was powered by a pair of electric motors, together offering 302 HP (306 PS). Add the 83 kWh battery to the mix and according to VW, you would be doing 62 mph (100 km/h) in just under 6 seconds, with a total range of 311 miles (500 km).

The production version, which has already been penciled in as the German automaker’s second I.D model following next year’s 5-door hatchback, probably won’t be fully autonomous, unlike the concept, which had pop-up laser scanners embedded in the glass roof.

Still, if it ends up looking as sporty as this render from Kleber Silva, we reckon most people will be on-board. While the rear end design could use some work, the rest of the car looks pretty well proportioned, if you like this type of body style that is.
