Title: CONCEPT%20CARS

CONCEPT CARS
  • What are they?

Concept Cars
GM Firebird I First gas turbine powered car
tested in the US. Essentially a jet on wheels,
highly impractical for the road.
  • A concept or show vehicle is a car prototype.
  • The cars are made to introduce new styling and
    new technology to the public.
  • They travel around the country in auto shows.
  • Concept cars gauge the reaction of the public to
    new designs to determine if the car would be
    accepted.
  • Whether the car is produced or not may be
    determined upon this customer reaction.

Concept Cars
  • Harley Earl, a General Motors designer is usually
    given credit for inventing the concept car.
  • Popularity of the concept car in the 1950s
    through GMs traveling Motorama shows.
  • Concept cars are not production cars.
  • Concept car designs are changed over again before
    final design is finalized, if it ever gets that
    far in the process.
  • Many concept cars never reach the production
    phase.

Concept Car Design
  • Concept cars are often radical in design.
  • They often use radical non-traditional materials
    from soy bean plastic, to paper, to carbon fiber.
  • They may have unique layouts such as more than or
    less than four doors.
  • Concept cars may be mock-ups, that is, made of
    wax, clay, fiberglass, metal, or a combination of
    these or other materials.
  • Many times they are not drivable while other
    times they use available drivetrains.
  • Most concept cars are destroyed after the auto
    shows though some do survive.

Concept Cars
  • Some concept cars survive.
  • Some are forgotten in storage.
  • Some go to museums.
  • Some actually get another lease on life.
  • The 1954 Ford Lincoln Futura was stored away for
    years.
  • It was found and used as the Batmobile in the
    1966 TV Batman series.
