BMW Z4 Concept

BMW's compact roadster has been out of production for over a year and hasn't seen a redesign since 2009. The new BMW Z4 Concept changes that. It diverts noticeably from the arguably feminine lines of its predecessors, replacing them with sharp edges that lend the car a wedge-like shape. It still holds the same long wheelbase, low-slung silhouette, and compact rear as classic roadsters, albeit accented with aggressive, vertical takes on the company's four-eyed headlights, a slanted kidney grille, and elongated L-shaped rear lights. Inside you'll find a driver-focused cabin with black surfaces denoting the cockpit, while the passenger area is clad in an orange that reflects the Energetic Orange frozen exterior paint. Unlike most concepts, this design study is set to appear in production-ready form sometime in the next year.

  • Retro Futuristic Vehicles

    Rarely does nostalgia and futurism blend as well as they do in these Retro Futuristic Vehicles concepts from Brazilian designer Jomar Machado. Mixing familiar silhouettes — motorcycles, Mustangs, and Porsches among them — with parts both vintage and currently impossible, they provide a potential glimpse into the future of travel that's both fantastic and yet feels fully grounded.

  • Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain 4×4²

    Started as a hobby car for Mercedes engineer Jürgen Eberle, the Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain 4×4² is now a full-blown concept. While it's based on the standard All-Terrain, it borrows some parts from other models, including the portal axles of the G500 4x4² and a 328 hp, 3.5L turbo V6 from the E400 wagon. It's also 1.5 inches taller and nearly eight inches wider, a stance accommodated by new carbon fiber fender flares, all of which gives it clearance of over 16 inches, approach and departure angles of 35.8 and 35.6 degrees, respectively, and the ability to tackle almost 20 inches of water. No word yet on if it will ever see production, but given MB's history of building absurd off-roaders, we wouldn't rule it out.
