Here's A Simple Idea: Give All Cars Tailgates Here's A Simple Idea: Give All Cars Tailgates

You know what are nice? Tailgates. You know what’s not nice? That tailgates are all-but entirely restricted to trucks and SUVs. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

The 1991 Jeep Wagoneer 2000 Was Large Enough To Eat The Moon The 1991 Jeep Wagoneer 2000 Was Large Enough To Eat The Moon

Jeep never put the 1991 Wagoneer 200 concept into production and that’s probably for the best. Had there been more than a single example built, it is likely that the Earth would re-orient its own orbit due to the vehicles’ prodigious mass.

Nissan Made The Accurate Boring Car Of The Future Way Back In 1983 Nissan Made The Accurate Boring Car Of The Future Way Back In 1983

I love old concept cars because it’s fun to look at the crazy ways designers and engineers imagined our future. Very rarely, however, do automakers glimpse into the world of tomorrow and actually get it right. But that’s basically what Nissan did in 1983 with the NRV-II concept. It’s just like the cars we drive…

The 2018 Chevy Silverado Performance Concept Has A Battle-Ready Supercharged V8 Heart Of Fury  The 2018 Chevy Silverado Performance Concept Has A Battle-Ready Supercharged V8 Heart Of Fury 

It’s Day 593 into the war. Or Day 840. Or 1,383. You can’t keep track anymore. And it’s not really your job to, anyways. You’re just the scout. The runner. You simply complete the missions until there aren’t any more to complete. You aren’t paid to ask questions.

I Am Afraid That I Am Not Manly Enough For The 2018 Ford F-150 RTR Muscle Truck Concept I Am Afraid That I Am Not Manly Enough For The 2018 Ford F-150 RTR Muscle Truck Concept

I could be wrong, but I think there’s a pretty stereotypical checklist of items you need to complete in order to be considered manly. An affinity for meat. A thirst for whiskey. A love of going outdoors. Flannel. Ron Swanson stuff—and stuff I can generally get behind. But this new RTR truck concept? I dunno.

Italian Coachbuilder's Modified G-Wagen Sure Looks Like This 2012 Mercedes Concept Italian Coachbuilder's Modified G-Wagen Sure Looks Like This 2012 Mercedes Concept

Italy has always been the home of small coachbuilding companies that take manufacturer’s cars and give them novel and exciting new bodies. Think Zagato, Italdesign, Pininfarina. They specialized in making cars that looked like nothing else. Ares is an Italian coachbuilder, too, but they seem to be more about making…

The Lexus LS+ Concept Is Built To Drive Itself In A City The Lexus LS+ Concept Is Built To Drive Itself In A City

It’s nearly 11 months into 2017 and I’ve only just found out it’s the 10th anniversary for Lexus’ F division. That’s quite a milestone. So instead of announcing the LC F at the Tokyo Motor Show, the brand instead showed a special edition version of the RC F and GS F—and an unusual concept.

Mazda Is The Hero Of The 2017 Tokyo Motor Show Mazda Is The Hero Of The 2017 Tokyo Motor Show

Two years ago, Mazda unveiled the RX-Vision Concept at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. It was the first big unveil that year and got everyone excited at the prospect of a new Mazda rotary sports car. This year, no such luck; but we do have cars that carried over the RX-Vision’s design language.

This Concept Car Has Airbags On The Outside This Concept Car Has Airbags On The Outside

There are people in New York City who put rubber shields on their bumpers to stop them from being scratched from other drivers tapping their cars while parallel parking. That’s amateur hour compared to this concept car from Toyoda Gosei, which surrounds nearly the entire body with ... airbags.

The Partisan One Is A Flat-Pack Allegedly Bomb-Proof Military Vehicle With A 100-Year Warranty The Partisan One Is A Flat-Pack Allegedly Bomb-Proof Military Vehicle With A 100-Year Warranty

If you have an Erector Set laying around somewhere, congratulations! You’re properly equipped to make an accurate scale model of a new military vehicle concept, the Partisan One. The Partisan One is a rugged, wildly basic 4x4 that’s built from a simple frame of right angles and bolt-on parts. It’s supposed to be…

GM Shows Off A New Autonomous Fuel-Cell Truck Platform Called SURUS And It's Pretty Damn Cool GM Shows Off A New Autonomous Fuel-Cell Truck Platform Called SURUS And It's Pretty Damn Cool

I have to admit, I was surprised by GM’s announcement of their new robotic fuel-cell-powered all-terrain utility-truck platform, SURUS. Most automaker reveals aren’t this confidently utilitarian, and it also seems to be a rebirth of a GM concept I thought was long dead, the Hy-wire fuel-cell concept that featured a…

The Toyota GR HV Sports Concept Is A Hybrid 86 With Both An Automatic And A Stick Shift Together The Toyota GR HV Sports Concept Is A Hybrid 86 With Both An Automatic And A Stick Shift Together

Well this certainly doesn’t look boring, this Toyota GR HV Sports Concept thing. It looks damn close to a Toyota 86, just with a different front, rear, interior, a hybrid powertrain and a freaky gearbox. I sort of love it.

The Toyota Tj Cruiser Concept Is A Toolbox On Wheels The Toyota Tj Cruiser Concept Is A Toolbox On Wheels

Ahead of this month’s Tokyo Motor Show, Toyota is telling us about a lot of cool new shit, like yesterday’s third-generation Century. Today we get a boxy concept car they’re calling the Tj Cruiser, which looks like the car equivalent of a bull in a china shop. In a good way, though.

Let's Hope Honda's Electric Sports Car Concept Doesn't Just Break Our Hearts Let's Hope Honda's Electric Sports Car Concept Doesn't Just Break Our Hearts

Remember that adorable retro-futuristic electric compact car concept Honda dangled in front of us a couple weeks ago? Apparently the company’s going to put a sports car body on the same platform to help convince us that EVs are awesome. It’s a great pitch, I just hope Honda’s not planning on pulling a CR-Z with these…

Here's Some Leaked Pics Of Rezvani's New 'Tactical Urban Weapon' SUV (UPDATED) Here's Some Leaked Pics Of Rezvani's New 'Tactical Urban Weapon' SUV (UPDATED)

We’ve written about small sports car-maker Rezvani before, makers of the Beast, a car owned by Chris Brown and some small number of other, lesser humans, I guess. Now Rezvani is making an SUV, and, in addition to their teaser images, we have some spy photos of the actual car.

This Planned Electric Three-Wheeler Looks Fantastic And Has A Novel Solution For Charging This Planned Electric Three-Wheeler Looks Fantastic And Has A Novel Solution For Charging

I get emails about concepts and proposals and grand automotive schemes all the time. It’s pretty rare that any of them actually come to fruition. But I was sent one that, while still very much non-existent, was charming and interesting enough that I want to show it to all of you. It’s called NOBE (the website doesn’t…

Honda Wins With This Fantastic Electric Retro-Future Concept Honda Wins With This Fantastic Electric Retro-Future Concept

After a string of boring silver suppositories calling themselves “concept cars” at the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show, Honda’s Urban EV concept is like a slap in the face with your favorite sandwich: surprising, but delightful. It’s an all-new electric platform for Honda, though the character and look are clearly based on…

The Mercedes-Benz Concept EQA Shows How Mercedes Can Phone In An Electric Hatch With A TV For A Grille The Mercedes-Benz Concept EQA Shows How Mercedes Can Phone In An Electric Hatch With A TV For A Grille

It’s notable that the Mercedes-Benz Concept EQA uses a large, color display screen in place of the grille, because that makes it easy to remove or change the big Mercedes tri-star badge and replace it with, say, any other company’s badge. If that happened, you’d never notice because this concept car, while sleek and…

Autonomous Cars Aren't Even Here Yet And I'm Already Bored With Them Autonomous Cars Aren't Even Here Yet And I'm Already Bored With Them

Whether you let your Tesla take over in traffic or you’re satisfied with a car’s power ending at cruise control, consumer vehicles cannot fully drive themselves yet. But as novel and new as the whole “self-driving cars” thing is, it’s already melding into a big puddle of blah. Take the Audi Aicon concept, for example.

I Dare You To Look At More Pictures Of The Unsettling BMW X7 I Dare You To Look At More Pictures Of The Unsettling BMW X7

I’m not sure what to feel worse about- insulting the designers who poured their energy into creating the BMW Concept X7 iPerformance, or subjecting you to more images of it. But the car’s official gallery has been opened, and into it we must charge. Grab a pitchfork.
