Lotus Eterne Concept, a Lotus Four-Door

Published

Lotus Eterne Concept

Lotus doesn’t plan on letting Aston Martin and Porsche run amuck with thier four-door sedans (the Rapide and Panamera, respectively). As part of its efforts to revive and revolutionize its lineup, the British automaker unveiled its new Eterne Concept — which hints at its own future four-seater, four-door GT hybrid — at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. Lotus says its intent is to plan for a production model in 2015.

The Eterne Concept is powered by the same 620-hp 5.0L V8 found in the new Lotus Elite concept. A hybrid system is optional and consists of electric-motors and a KERS, which is a Formula 1 style energy regeneration system. Lotus says that the production Eterne will be offered in both all-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive configurations. When mated to a full hybrid transmission, 0-60 mph should come in just 4.0 seconds.

See the press release for specifications on the Lotus Eterne Concept sedan.

Toyota Supra TRD Concept Shows Off New Carbon Fiber Parts

Toyota Supra TRD Concept, Carbon Fiber Parts

It’s an unbridled love affair with carbon fiber.

Not long after taking the wraps off at the Detroit Auto Show, Toyota has revealed a TRD Concept that shows off some of the accessories from Toyota Racing Development possibly coming to the Japanese sports car.

Unveiled at the Osaka Auto Messe aftermarket show, the Toyota GR Supra Performance Line Concept TRD is fitted with many new carbon fiber parts to increase downforce and reduce lift. The front spoiler, side skirts, and rear spoiler and spats are all crafted from carbon fiber, while a carbon fiber door garnish replaces the stock faux vent to reduce turbulence of the airflow over the rear end.

The exterior is finished in a muted silver color that compliments the carbon fiber parts nicely, while unique 19-inch wheels highlight the four corners.

Unfortunately, TRD made no upgrades under the hood. Power is provided by the stock Supra’s turbocharged 3.0L inline-six, generating the same ol’ 335 hp and 365 lb-ft. of torque.

It’s not known if or when these carbon fiber parts and new wheels will be available, and whether they will remain exclusive to the Japanese market like many TRD parts in the past. Either way, share your thoughts about the Toyota GR Supra Performance Line Concept TRD in the comments below.

This Crossover Concept Previews Cadillac’s First-Ever EV

Published

New Cadillac EV Crossover Concept

It came out of nowhere and shocked the Detroit Auto Show.

Cadillac followed up the unveiling of the Cadillac XT6 large crossover with a preview of its first-ever all-electric vehicle.

Taking the form of premium electric crossover, the concept is striking and likely also hints at the brand’s future design direction.

“Cadillac’s EV will hit the heart of the crossover market and meet the needs of customers around the world,” said Steve Carlisle, president of Cadillac. “It will represent the height of luxury and innovation while positioning Cadillac as the pinnacle of mobility.”

  • New Cadillac XT6 Debuts As Cadillac’s First Three-Row Crossover
  • The surprising reveal comes not long after General Motors announced that Cadillac will lead its electric vehicle strategy, effectively making it the automaker’s Tesla-fighter. Specific details such as power or features aren’t known, nor do we have a definitive timetable as to when the production model will be ready, but it will be the first GM vehicle to be built on the company’s forthcoming dedicated EV platform and should offer level 4 autonomous capabilities at the least.

    In essence, not only will the vehicle be Cadillac’s first step into the EV world, but it will also push it deeper into the autonomous realm.

Lexus LC Convertible Concept Previews Stylish Drop-Top Roadster

Published

Lexus LC Convertible Concept

The rumors about the LC 500 getting a droptop version were true after all.

Lexus has revealed the LC Convertible Concept, which likely previews an upcoming open-top roadster and hints at a shift in the LC’s design language.

Presented as a roadster, the LC Convertible Concept is designed to express “ultimate beauty” and serve as an aspirational halo vehicle for the entire Lexus lineup. Its proportions are nearly identical to the LC Coupe but stands out with a steeply-raked windshield and a contoured trunk lid.

“This concept takes the unmistakable design of the LC coupe and reimagines it as a future convertible,” said Tadao Mori, chief designer of the LC Convertible concept. “It blends all the best aspects of the original coupe with the dynamic design of an open-air convertible.”

The interior features white leather trim, contrasted by yellow accent stitching to break up an otherwise monochrome look.

The Lexus LC Convertible Concept appears to be close to production-ready. Do you want one?
