Team Project: Porsche Mission E

In a late evening chat between the team members, we had a spark of idea, "we should do a team "chop", just like the good old days. The seed has been planted and so we searched for a subject, we all agreed on Mission E, as it had the classic Porsche lines, but with a twist. We loved the buldgy fenders and the low waist line, but it was a 4-door coupe, so that had to go away.

BMW i3 Concept Coupe

Here at ps-garage we rarely post about concept cars, but this one caught our eye. It's not the "cool-looking" it is (sure, it looks great), but it's the adaptability and suitability that really made us post about this concept.

Concept cars are usually ridiculous and outrageous (hence, their good looks). The BMW i3 Concept was originally something of fantasy - with its unique architecture and glass doors and floating panels. But BMW's most recent revision of this concept suddenly made it totally practical, and we might just see it on the road in the near future.
