Interest and Intrigue for the Future

01.06.16 - Faraday Future FFZERO1 Concept

The future just might be Faraday Future which has shown us a few videos of their concept of what cars should be and might be as we move forward.  The interesting part is the company has largely been quiet about what it has been doing other than working to create an app-powered network of driving service cars and poaching employees from Tesla.  The recent excepts from Faraday show us that they may be working on more than just a fleet of car services that could be called up with an app.  the recent twitter video released shows us a car that is obviously ca carbon fiber covered sports car.

Infiniti Will Bring in the QX30 for us to Enjoy

12.20.15 - 2017 Infiniti QX30

Infiniti has already announced they will offer the smallest version of its lineup the QX30 in the US and everywhere else in 2017.  Most of the world will see this as two different vehicles, but because the two vehicles (the Q30 and QX30) are basically the same size with one being a bit taller because of right height they will be under the same name here in America.  This will make it easy for us to understand exactly what this vehicle is, a small hatchback that has one model with a higher ride.

Nissan IDS

The Nissan IDS is one that appears to be the futuristic car that Nissan is developing to give us a car that not only offers a great battery pack but can also drive you wherever you need to go.  The goal at Nissan and at some other automakers is to have a zero emissions and zero fatality car that can be the ride you choose to ensure your safety and enjoy the ride to and from your destination.  The battery pack put in the IDS is a 60-kWh battery and with some autonomous driving technology this may be much closer to a reality than you might think.

What is the new McLaren 570S?

McLaren 570S

I hear the name McLaren and instantly I think of the P1 and the 650S which are both of the super and ultimate varieties from McLaren.  These models were made to win races, take over the track and leave all the other super cars behind with a wide range of statistics that make them the most active and advanced cars we can find just about anywhere.  Making their hay competing with the Lamborghini and Ferrari models while fully expecting to leave these competitors in the dust which means the expectation is that the 570S is a car that will compete with the Porsche 911 or Audi R8, but McLaren has stated that is not the consideration at all.

Why are Car Faces So Angry?

Why are Car Faces So Angry

For years the front of the car, its face, looked either serious, playful or even determined, but more often than not the descriptions of your vehicle at the front was not of anger.  The face of the car resembled its character in many ways, offering you a certainty about what the car would be an how it would feel to drive.  Not only could you find cars that seemed genuinely happy to be driven you could buy cars in a wide variety of colors in order to show some of your own personality that would go along with the car.  Now if you want the color to be a personal reflection you need a niche or sports car and sometimes have to pay for the color change.
