polestar, polestar o2 -

When I see all these new cars and EVs coming out it really makes me question if I should get back in the corporate world and apply for a job as a car designer because I just love the creativity, the proportions and designs we see these days. It’s like the joy and excitement has returned to the car design profession and this, the Polestar O2 is just another example of that.  I can’t wait to share my views on this design but first, let’s have a look at some of the spec and tech. The Polestar O2 Concept is...

porsche, porsche macan ev -

It’s been known for a while now that Porsche will release the Macan EV soon since Porsche dropped the news that an electric version of their best selling SUV was in development about two years ago. It’s just now that we’re starting to get some details of what it will have to offer.  It’s been an unusually slow process to bring the Porsche Macan EV into production but it kind of makes sense when you consider that the Macan is Porsche’s best-selling car.

The face and the proportions of a BMW was unified across the entire lineup. You knew without a doubt that what you were looking at was a car manufactured and...

By the way this is exactly what the production version will look like, minus maybe the yellow tailpipes. But you know what, I can see why the energy was low. I watched the reveal live last night and the second I saw the car I was ready to go do something else. What a disappointment. What a missed opportunity. Because when I...

2022 gmc sierra, 2022 toyota tundra -

The base model of the 2022 GMC Sierra is now called Pro and we also get two brand new trim levels - the AT4X and Denali Ultimate trims, which you can think of as AT4 and Denali plus trims with a little bit of extra everything. The AT4X is the most off-road-focused model in the Sierra 1500 lineup and it isn’t just for show. It comes with advanced dampers, electronic locking front and rear differentials, skid plates to protect the undercarriage and even the body of the truck with the rocker guards. The wheels are black 18-inch wrapped in Goodyear...
