In 2040, You May Drive a Car That Looks Like This

The Lincoln Motor Company recently revealed a quartet of concept cars aimed at depicting the types of vehicles the automaker might potentially produce in 2040, and the designs are shocking and compelling in all the best ways. The concepts were created by four teams of transportation design students at the ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California—one of the world’s premier institutions for up-and-coming automotive thought—and were based on a very simple brief.

“We didn’t want to restrain or limit the students, so we had very few descriptors,” says Kemal Curic, Lincoln’s design director, who helped shepherd the project into existence. “We wanted an autonomous, electric, and shared two-seater, four-seater, high-riding four-seater, and six-seater. We wanted to include our brand pillars of humanity, beauty, and gliding, based on our vision of Quiet Flight, which is what Lincoln stands for. And we said, let’s dream up something the world has not

The scorching hot used car market may finally be cooling off

By Peter Valdes-Dapena, CNN Business

For months, used car prices have been soaring at an unprecedented rate. That has led to some strange situations, like people selling used pickup trucks for more than they bought them for a year ago and even cars with more than 100,000 miles gaining a lot in value.

But two new reports indicate that things may be starting to cool off.

Wholesale used car prices — what car dealers pay for the cars they sell to customers — fell in the first two weeks of July, while used vehicle inventories at dealerships increased, according to Cox Automotive.

In addition, the retail price of used cars — the amount consumers pay — has continued to increase, but at a slower pace over the past month, according to a separate Cox Automotive report. While it’s not certain yet, Cox Automotive analysts think retail prices will start coming

What 15-Year-Old Car Looks the Most Modern Today?

Automotive styling moves pretty fast, and one of the most difficult feats for auto designers to pull off is future-proofing a design to the point that it won’t look visibly dated after a decade or more in production. Some notable designs that have pulled off this feat over the past decade and a half have included the first-generation Audi R8, which still looks relatively fresh today, even though production began during the second George W. Bush administration in summer, 2006. Its corporate sibling, the Lamborghini Gallardo has also aged well visually, despite having entered production all the way back in 2003.

If the same challenge had been posed in the year 2000, inquiring about cars from the year 1985 that could pass for being fresh and modern, the list of contenders would have likely been almost empty. That’s how much time had passed in automotive design. Even the wildest
