Henrik Fisker Thunderbolt – the one-off GT coupe of our dreams

Henrik Fisker Thunderbolt Angle 1 - High Res - EMBARGOED UNTIL 10AM ET 031415

Henrik Fisker is a man that likes to stay busy, to say the least. Just days after announcing that the super Mustang he helped create with Galpin Auto Sports was ready for production, he’s pulling the covers off of another huge project this morning at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. Unless you’re one of the privileged few at Amelia Island this morning, you’re seeing this here (and probably elsewhere too, to be honest) first; but you didn’t even have to leave your house to see it, so really you’re the one that’s privileged.

This other project of Fisker’s is called the Thunderbolt, a one-off design study based on the Aston Martin Vanquish. This is not only Fisker’s vision for how Aston’s flagship could look, but it’s also his ideal V12-powered GT sports coupe. And it just might be ours too.

2016 Honda Pilot – Angles and Curves

2016 honda pilot

This morning, a major automotive website, and Jalopnik, provided an early showing of the redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot. Where I was instantly in love with the new 2015 Volvo XC90, I am sad to say that this vehicle did not give me the same feeling. At this point I should also say that I have always been a Honda fanboy; I’ve owned about eight different Hondas and I currently own an Acura MDX and an Acura Integra, and so it pains to be critical of their new designs.

First, let’s keep in mind that designing a good family vehicle, which CUV/SUVs have become, is extremely challenging. The market demands that these vehicles must be functional, spacious, comfortable, easy to drive and maneuver, efficient, and safe. In terms of looks, they must appeal equally to men and women, and at the same time have a design edge over the competition. Did Honda get this right?
