BAIC BJ100 Concept: Better By Literally Any Other Name [2014 Beijing Auto Show]  Apr 22nd, 2014 
It’s unfortunate BAIC chose the “BJ100″ moniker for this tough-looking SUV concept, because we’re not so sure it sucks.

The JAC SC-9 Concept Is Really . . . Long [2014 Beijing Auto Show]  Apr 22nd, 2014 
One way by which humans detect attractiveness in potential mates is based on the symmetry of their face—you lose this ability when you’re drunk, which explains the beer-goggles phenomenon—so that means, in a way, everyone is capable of sifting the well-proportioned from the bad. Which brings us to the colossal SC-9 concept car from JAC […] 
 
 
Defend and Expand: Next Land Rover Defender to Spawn Family of Rugged, Attainable Models  Apr 22nd, 2014 
The Land Rover Defender sprang from the same well as the Jeep Wrangler.

Nissan Lannia Concept: A Mini-Maxima For China, By China [2014 Beijing Auto Show]  Apr 22nd, 2014 
Nissan’s pushing its “V-motion” styling theme hard. So hard, in fact, that its Chinese designers, who supposedly exist to cater the brand’s wares to the Chinese market’s unique tastes, have whipped up a concept car with, you guessed it, V-motion styling. In fact, the Lannia concept, which debuted at the 2014 Beijing auto show, looks […]

Ford broke the pickup mold when it introduced its aluminum-bodied 2015 F-150. The move to include that much aluminum on a mass-produced, high-volume vehicle such as the F-150 is unprecedented.

Screaming Yellow Zonker! Scion FR-S Release Series 1.0 Unveiled [2014 New York Auto Show]  Apr 22nd, 2014 
One of the best things about Scion’s sweet FR-S sports car is that it’s something of a blank canvas for customization.

Case in point: the lightly modified Scion FR-S Release Series 1.0, the […] 
 
 
Suck It, Caravan: Buick GL8 is China’s Minivan of Choice [2014 Beijing Auto Show]  Apr 22nd, 2014 
While the concept of a Buick-badged minivan hasn’t entered the American psyche since the awful Terraza plagued the brand’s U.S. dealers way back in 2007, the idea is very much alive and well in China. Dubbed the GL8, Buick’s van is—like the other rides in its lineup—hugely popular. The current-generation model seen here has been […]

BMW Vision Future Luxury Concept Released, Foretells New 9-series Flagship [2014 Beijing Auto Show]  Apr 21st, 2014 
When marketers use “luxury” to describe convenience or most technology, they dilute its definition.

Given the French and Chinese flags flying at its Beijing auto show stand, we’re guessing automaker PGO must be some kind of Franco-Sino mashup from hell.
