Beyond the polished concept cars and design studies, automakers sometimes build unique vehicles simply because they have all the parts and tools lying around and, as Nissan says, "why not". That type of open-minded thinking recently gave way to a one-of-a-kind vehicle that blurs the lines between the Frontier pickup truck and the Leaf EV. The new concept joins the ranks of unlikely tiny pickup truck concepts from the likes of Mini and Smart.  Read More

In place of the luxury van typical in roadtrip-ready office spaces, the Tristar is underpinned by a specially built 4Motion pickup truck.  Read More

Driverless cars are accelerating towards reality, with plans for UK tests next year, Audi being issued California's first autonomous driving permit and Elon Musk claiming that the technology is just five to six years from maturity. All this begs the question, what will driverless cars look like? If artist Dominic Wilcox has any say in the matter, they will look like mini cathedrals.  Read More

But while that PlayStation concept enjoyed its 15 minutes of fame down by the Pacific, another GT6 concept was enjoying its North American debut at a private event up in the sun-scorched hills east of Monterey. Aston Martin had invited a select group of media and clientele to not only drive and experience cars like the Vanquish and V12 Vantage S, but also to view firsthand the digital-inspired awesomeness that was the DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo.  Read More
