The New 2021 BMW M3 And M4 Have Leaked And Maybe If You're Pregnant Don't Look Right At Them

The New 2021 BMW M3 And M4 Have Leaked And Maybe If You're Pregnant Don't Look Right At Them

The new 2021 BMWs M3 and M4 are not supposed to be officially released until tomorrow, but images of them have been leaked in various places around the internet, so the inner peace we all once enjoyed before having seen these new BMWs has been shortened by a day. Sorry. Based on these pictures, it looks like BMW is really doubling down into the naked mole rat/Tycho Brahe without his fake...

Ford Teases Front End Of The Upcoming 2023 Electric F-150

Ford Teases Front End Of The Upcoming 2023 Electric F-150
Truck Yeah The trucks are good!

When Ford was excitedly telling everyone about

their plans for the electric F-150 and the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center they’re building on Thursday, they showed a teaser image of the new EV F-150's face, giving us a pretty good general idea of what it’ll look like. And it seems the key element here is a glowing white unibrow.

The front end is dominated by that...

These Prototypes Of The Renault Rodéo Are Fascinating Industrial Design

These Prototypes Of The Renault Rodéo Are Fascinating Industrial Design

Our pals over at Car Design Archives have uncovered another absolute treasure cache—pictures of prototypes of the Renault Rodéo, the

fun car-version of the Renault 4, much like what the Volkswagen Thing was to the Beetle, or the Citroën Mehari was to the 2CV, or Austin Moke was to the Mini. These sorts of deliberately minimalistic cars pose some interesting design challenges, and there’s one...

Let's Dig Into The Design Of The New Nissan Z Proto

Let's Dig Into The Design Of The New Nissan Z Proto

Nissan finally pulled out of its torpor and did something exciting that didn’t involve

smuggling a disgraced CEO in a suitcase : they finally showed a new Z car. If Nissan still has an iconic car in its stable, it has to be the Z, which has been around in various forms since 1969. The new Z Proto is clearly heavily inspired by the original Z, but also shows some other crucial design...

The New Nissan Z Proto Is Pretty Much Exactly What I Wanted: Old School

The New Nissan Z Proto Is Pretty Much Exactly What I Wanted: Old School

The Nissan Z Proto, an official forerunner for a tentatively promised next-gen Z car, has bowed and it incorporates some features I like. Namely a cool, long-looking body that’s built around two supportive seats and a real three-pedal manual transmission. So far, so good.

I imagine what you want to do most is look at it, so, here:

Nissan Z Proto Virtual Walkaround G/O Media may get a...

Volvo's New Ionization Air Filter Will Clean Your Car Of Yesterday's Bad Breath And Farts

Volvo's New Ionization Air Filter Will Clean Your Car Of Yesterday's Bad Breath And Farts

Do you ever have to confront yourself first thing in the morning when you climb in your car? What’s that? You left yesterday’s 7-Eleven pizza lunch in your Volvo S90 and it smells? Well, worry no more—the automaker has designed a new

air quality control system that will freshen your car before you ever have to get in.

Developed, in part, with the Chinese market in mind specifically, Volvo has...

Here's How The New Jeep Grand Wagoneer Would Look With Wood Trim

Here's How The New Jeep Grand Wagoneer Would Look With Wood Trim

We’ve just seen the

all-new Jeep Grand Wagoneer , the fancy-ass, LCD-crammed new luxury SUV Jeep wants you to go into a bit more debt to buy. But do you even want to consider a Grand Wagoneer without the option of sides slathered in tree meat, be it genuine or fake? Because wood paneling has been a Grand Wagoneer staple for decades. Could it still be possible on the new one?

The original...

Someone Explain This To Me, Please

Someone Explain This To Me, Please

No emperor in ermine or crowned king or be-shashed mayor bestowed the honor on me, but I still claim the title of Global Taillight Culture Ambassador. This is not a position I take lightly, which means that it’s my responsibility to do my best to understand and advocate for all taillight subcultures, from the Altezzans to the Amber Rear Indicator League to the

true taillight pervs . That’s...

Lucid Spotted Testing An SUV Version Of Its Upcoming EV

Lucid Spotted Testing An SUV Version Of Its Upcoming EV

We’ve been talking a good bit about the upcoming Lucid Air battery/electron-powered vehicle, mostly because the company claims

it’ll have a range of more than 500 miles and, less mentioned, it appears to have 20 pop-up headlamps . One thing it isn’t, though, is an SUV, the biggest money-making segment of the American market. Perhaps because the executives enjoy acquiring money as well...

Jeep Keeps Teasing The New Grand Wagoneer With More Little Detail Snapshots And Now Has A Reveal Date

Jeep Keeps Teasing The New Grand Wagoneer With More Little Detail Snapshots And Now Has A Reveal Date

Jeep’s remembered that they like taking money from people in exchange for vehicles, so to make more of that happen they’re planning on releasing an all-new three-row SUV, a segment that sells like piping hot sexcakes here in America. Jeep hasn’t sold a three-row SUV since the Jeep Commander was discontinued a decade ago, but come September 3rd, they will again, with an all-new Jeep Grand...

In Case You Were Wondering, Vulva Taillights Appear To Be A Thing

In Case You Were Wondering, Vulva Taillights Appear To Be A Thing

I’ve been doing some research into the history of a certain kind of common early taillight known as the Duolamp, a little unit which was common on old Fords and other cars of the teens through the 1930s. Because these cars often got hot-rodded in later years, these lamps have remained at a certain level of aftermarket popularity, even inspiring some novelty knockoffs. Among these knockoffs is...

The Lexus RC F GT3 Proves The Best Application For Lexus' Grille Is 'Menacing Race Car'

The Lexus RC F GT3 Proves The Best Application For Lexus' Grille Is 'Menacing Race Car'

Yet again, race cars hold the answer. This time, it’s with an aesthetic grievance: Lexus’

creepy hourglass grilles . While impressive in their complexity, the end result on the road car looks like some kind of unsettling alien web meant for trapping possums on the road and shooting them into an alternate dimension.

Love it or hate it, you kind of have to admire the intricacy of the Lexus...

What's The Most Ridiculous Aero In Motorsports?

What's The Most Ridiculous Aero In Motorsports?

In a perfect race car design world, all shapes would be clean, and you’d need just one wing out back, one wing up front, and a smooth envelope of a car in between. But race car design is never perfect.

There are always regulations that force designers into conceptual corners, there are always budget constraints that require revisions of current designs when clean sheet new ones would be more...

What's The Worst Retro Car Ever Made?

What's The Worst Retro Car Ever Made?

Automobiles are futuristic things, ushering us into a faster, smaller, more explosive world. Sometimes, however, the sticky syrup of nostalgia creeps over car design and we are stuck with yet another retro humbug.

Not all retro cars are bad (something plain to anyone who has seen a Ford GT, or spotted a Nissan S-Cargo), but many are just tacky and thoughtless and bad.

The above car is
