Concept cars you wish existed or will come to life soon!

Speaking of the Mizubishi SSS concept;

The mitsubishi SSU


#42

Oh, I knew that. It’s just, I want a Monster-Juke :imp:


I have an entire list of these concepts from april 2007 - april 2008 (I read a book today!)


Citroen Hypnos

Probably the most insane interior I’ve ever seen in/on a production concept car.


Fiat Bugster

I WANT IT NAOW

Mazda Kazamai

I mean, I looks like an alien… I love it

Renault Ondelios

LOOK AT

I.DE.A Era

Uh, why would you not want this?



#43

You’re telling me they actually pushed THAT through to production? o.O

Simple… because I don’t like getting rained on :stuck_out_tongue:


Since you mentioned Citroen, you reminded me of the Zabrus Concept from 1986




Gorgeous.

I know I said I like flat cars… but Citroen took it a step too far with the Karin from 1980


The 1956 Nash Rambler Palm Beach Concept was kind of pretty for the era. Cool thing is that she’s still alive and drivable.

Oops. Meant to say Concept car there… Mistake on my end.

Wow, this thread went from 0-100 real quick.

Anyway:


The 1992 Lincoln Marque-X Concept previewed styling of both the 1st gen and 2nd gen Lincoln Mark VIIIs. However, many of the features on the concept (19-inch wheels, navigation system etc.) didn’t make it into production when I wish it had.



The only “factory” supercharged Lincoln Mark VIII to be built. It was a driveline mule/prototype for a supercharged Modular V8 (can’t believe it took them 10 years to finally put it into production LOL). Had they made a production version - even if it was de-tuned from the 450hp as you see here - I’d still be driving one. That kind of power, styling, and sophistication is just too good to pass up (reliability be damned).

The Chrysler 300 HEMI C Convertible Concept - strikingly good looks, V8 muscle. I’d rather have this over a Mercedes-Benz SL500 (R230) or Cadillac XLR. Imagine if it was in production today? With a 707-horsepower, supercharged Hellcat engine (2x what the concept is making in it’s pre-production 5.7-liter HEMI). :heart_eyes:



Of course, I can’t leave out General Motors - the undisputed Queen of Cocktease Concepts.™ My personal favorite (of the modern era - classic concepts would take up an entire forum), is the Cadillac Elmiraj. Powered by a 500-horsepower, twin-turbo V8 that will eventually make its way into the Cadillac CT6, as a styling exercise GM really hit it out of the park with this one. I like big coupes… can’t help it. :laughing:

HNNNG


#55

#OH GOD WHAT IS THAT


#56

It’s the Saturn Curve. I have absolutely no idea if i absolutely hate it or absolutely love it

EDIT:

Much better angle:


#57

What’s the consensus on this?


What’s happening to Porsche?!


#58

Tbh it looks better than a Panamera or Cayenne that’s for sure but like… still why


#59

That’s the problem. Better than the Cayenne, better than the Panamera, but no better literally being half of each either

Haha, they just stretched a Sebring/Stratus hybrid over a Cadillac XLR… and it does indeed look good. They should have marketed that as a softer, more comfy Corvette, to compete against the SL500s; as you mentioned.

Dodge is already dead. They’ve been dead since 2009. They have been reborn as Fiat though.
To be honest… I love the Fiaoge Dart;


As your average sedan… she’s quite a looker.
Now here’s the sad part; “On January 27, 2016, Fiat Chrysler announced that it will end production of the Dodge Dart and Chrysler 200 due to the company’s decision to redirect its energies towards building Crossover vehicles. A plan to move production from its Belvidere Assembly Plant to Mexico was in the works but later scrapped. Another factor was in how the vehicle was reviewed by Consumer Reports and laying blame on the vehicle’s designers, along with declining sales.”

Why this is sad you may ask? Because of this;
"At the New York International Auto Show in 2012, a Dodge Dart turbo four-wheel drive rally car was shown. Based on 2013 Dodge Dart, it included a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder, 16-valve turbo-charged engine rated 600 hp (447 kW) and over 550 lb·ft (746 N·m) of torque, Sadev 4-wheel drive transmission.
On May 6, 2014, the Dart SRT was confirmed by the FIAT Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) group. Originally based on the 5-year plan it looked like the unveiling of the Dart SRT was set for December 2016, but due to Fiat Chrysler’s decision to end production on the Dart, the SRT trim will not go forward as planned."

They wanted to make an AWD turbo 2L Dart to annoy Subis and Mitsus. That would have been great!.. but this is GM… and GM must kill all their own good ideas. Apparently Fiat can’t save them here.


1953 Dodge Zeder Z-250

2002 Dodge M80 Concept


I can’t help but laugh at that thing. I think they were trying to nod to their 1940’s trucks… but it ends up looking like a child’s toy truck.
