Despite the later successes and established iconic design, the 911 Spyder remains for Porsche and the whole automotive landscape, some sort of unicorn; an unreplicated, dreamlike beast. This, along with the overall challenge of rethinking the Porsche design led to Project 411.
As the CES 2020 is wrapping up, what was your favorite announcement of the entire week? Unfortunately, we were not planning to go to Vegas this year, but I was able to watch and read a couple of announcements on social media to see how it went. Let's just say that the unveiling of Mercedes-Benz the VISION AVTR definitely caught our attention. I mean just take a look at the concept car.
Lukas Haag first published project as an Exterior Designer at Mercedes-Benz is an amazing concept car for the 2019 Frankfurt Auto Show (IAA). I was lucky to win the internal competition with my entry which made me the responsible designer for the complete exterior of the car.
I am a fan of car design, I grew up drawing cars, especially F1 because of the Ayrton Senna phase we had in the 80s in Brazil. Also, I believe all kids had a poster of either a Ferrari F-40 or Lamborghini Countach. That’s the reason I love seeing concept car projects even though don’t post very often about it. There are cases, however, that I have to, for example, the amazing project that 殷 格 posted on her Behance profile title Polestar S Concept.
The car industry seems to be heading to a disruption, in this case the EV take over. In my opinion Tesla had a huge role in this process by showing that electric cars can be awesome. Last week during the Frankfurt Auto Show we saw some big announcements, from the VW I.D series to Audi and Porsche, however the car the caught my attention the most, at least from posts was the Hyundai 45 EV concept car. Okay, but what is so cool about this car? For me it has to be the lines, it does look like coming out of a futurist movie or video-game from the 80s.
Just to continue with our streak with Industrial Designs, we would like to feature the work from Andrey Tkachenko who is a freelance artist based in Nizhiy Novgorod, Russia. Mainly focusing his work into a blend of Industrial Design, Illustration, Motion Graphics, we are primary showcasing his car concepts and designs that are phenomenal in so many ways. I wish there was more information about Andrey on his process and even where does his inspiration comes from.
With all the technology and novelty that we see/witness nowadays. It's hard not to imagine that in the near future (already here) we'll cars with auto-pilot, driverless cars where you can simply just let the car go and enjoy your ride from A to B. One of the primary novelty we had was the Electric Car. We would like to showcase a car design called the City Rover that was awarded Michelin 2016 Design Challenge; MOBILITY FOR ALL.
The design team of Aston Martin was involved with the Creator of Gran Turismo (popular driving stimulator franchise) to develop a breathtaking addition to its upcoming Gran Turismo®6 (GT6™). Using the same techniques in the development of a real Aston Martin, the team had to revolutionize the aerodynamics as a way of enhancing and support the car’s functionality in-game.
I really enjoy seeing people doing cool photoshop works in photographs, doing all kinds of crazy stuff, like customizing real-life cars. That's exactly what Richard Andersen does, and it's pretty awesome.
Hi everyone, I'm a new writer here at Adbuzeedo. I love all things design (like most of you reading this) and this is my first posting and I hope you enjoy it. I've seen many concept cars in my lifetime, whether on the web or at a car show, but I've never seen anything like these before. These concepts come from the Royal College of Art (I'm guessing that's in the UK somewhere). They're incredible! But of course, like all concept cars, I'll probably never see them on the streets...ever. Oh well, they're still cool to daydream about.
