cretinbob: they all look the same, with the exception of the Cherokee


Add some side view mirrors and door handles, and they look production ready. Where are the flights of fancy? Where is the wild exuberance?
 
2013-01-18 05:54:40 AM
1 Kinda cool
2 meh
3 meh
4 I can dig it, I like the nice fat rear fenders.
5 Remember the video of the Cherokee drifting in the parking lot? This might encourage that.
6 Hyundai =/= Aston Martin
7 New orange meh
8 Look, a Tourag with an Audi logo
9 Cool, but don't they already make that one?
10 Mercedes are starting to look like deflated balloons

Here in Detroit we usually just call it "the Detroit Auto Show" but naturally FARKers will block that little detail out of their minds, lest the idea of something awesome in Detroit cause their brains to implode.

Dammit, I wanted to see something that has no chance of being made, so I can biatch about it next year.
 
2013-01-18 06:07:01 AM
Since when did next years model become "concept?"
 
2013-01-18 06:08:02 AM
Do any of them look like something James Bond would drive? No? Then I'm not interested.

/Because you're not driving in style unless you have an ejector seat and guns in your headlights

Since car companies decided that was cheaper. The corolla isnt next years model.
 
2013-01-18 06:16:26 AM
After looking at that list, I think maybe I would have preferred something that looked like a goose mated with Gene Simmons.

2014 Corvette Stingray - trying way too hard
2014 Kia Cadenza - much too exciting for me
Lincoln MKC Concept - and how is this original?
2014 Infiniti Q50 - nice lines, but not that interesting.
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT - wow, a jeep suv, how exciting
Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept - Looks like an old Bugatti meets the future. ugly-sexy cool.
Toyota Furia Concept - A working Toyota design, meh.
Audi SQ5 - farking boring.
BMW 4-Series Concept Coupe - when did BMW loose their soul?
2014 Mercedes E Class - This has interesting lines, it might age really, really well.
Continental GTC Speed - Yet another ugly design for the footballer with too much money.

There's no such thing as an over-powered car. Just an under powered situation.

Man, the auto show is basically the only reason I ever go to Detroit. I'm heading out there either this weekend or the next. Most of the cars are flipping boring, but there are some beauties that always turn out.
 
2013-01-18 06:22:11 AM
Concept [car] (of a product, esp. a car) created as an exercise to demonstrate the technical skills and imagination of the designers, and not intended for mass production or sale.

Would have been nice if there were actually pictures in the article.
 
2013-01-18 06:55:41 AM
Those are not all concept cars, subby.
 
2013-01-18 07:18:27 AM
Of note:

- Bimmer 4 series: looking good.

- Where's my turbo Toyobaru? Glad to hear the success of the NA version is causing Toyota to consider bringing back the Supra and possibly even the MR2.

- C7: $70k car that pushes 450 hp stock. Outfarkingstanding. The C5-C7 Vettes are one of the only American cars I would ever own. For its price, it is truly the best car...

That's outstanding? The 1SS Camaro gets 423 hp stock for less than half that price. The ZL1 Camaro gets 580 hp from the factory for under $57K

Or maybe you're being sarcastic and I'm not familiar enough with Top Gear?

This. I'd own a Camaro over a Vette any day.

That's what I thought. For the most part, the cars look exactly what you see on the street.
 
2013-01-18 08:17:00 AM
Fat pig of a Camaro with more horsepower, or a lighter, better handling and braking Corvette that will beat its ass silly.

As we all know, the only thing of importance in regards to a vehciles performance is its power plant.

Camaros are ugly abominations.

Glad someone already covered this. The whole list is made up of cars that are going into production (and some probably already have begun). That is not at all the same thing as a concept.
 
2013-01-18 08:30:50 AM
None of them fly, list fails.
 
2013-01-18 08:32:46 AM
Is it me or is the Cadenza something of a rip off of the 5-series?
 
2013-01-18 08:35:48 AM
On the KIA Cadenza...

Okay, I know what a "clean rear end" is, as I try to do that every day... but what the heck is a "dramatic front"?!

What a completely irrelevant statement.

DemonEater: Is it me or is the Cadenza something of a rip off of the 5-series?


I don't think Kia has ever had original styling. Hyundai used to be a terrible offender, but they hired some legit designers and at least some of their vehicles are original now. Kia, on the other hand, just seems to be ripping off of someone with just about every car they make.
 
2013-01-18 08:41:49 AM
that was the absolute worst list of "concepts" ever! most of them look like cars that are already in production!

the vette looks cool, but most vettes do. bentleys i'm sure are a nice ride, but they're definitely for people who have too much f'ing money.

i drove an "r-spec" 5.0 liter hyundai genesis sedan a few days ago and if i had $45000 to spend on a car i may have to consider that one

lol, what are you talking about? If they actually put that into production it would be the first good looking BMW in pretty much forever

i tried to talk my mom into a genesis, but she bought another altima. i do like her altima, and it's quite a bit less expensive than the genesis, but i think she would've liked the genesis. her parents (in their mid-80s) just layed down cash for a new ford taurus, and the crazy thing is the 10 year extended warranty that i certainly hope is transferrable to whomever may get the car when my grandparents can no longer drive it.

I'm sorry, but its not a proper Corvette without the little flip-up headlights.
 
2013-01-18 09:18:22 AM
I got a little wet when I saw the 4 series. I had a full crisis when I saw the new E class.

I never imagined that the future would be so boring.
 
2013-01-18 09:43:46 AM
Is it just me, or did their pricing seem to skew a little high? The E-class is gonna jump by $15k? What I presume to be BMW's answer to the A5 starts at $50k versus $37k, which is even higher than its own 5 series. Even the Kia Cadenza (really?! that's the best you could come up with, Seoul?) starts higher than its Hyundai-badged siblings.
