Since the 1950s, car and driving enthusiasts and classic car collectors have been fascinated by the concept car. As defined by Wikipedia, “A concept vehicle […] is a car made to showcase new styling and/or new technology […] often shown at motor shows to gauge customer reaction to new and radical designs which may or may not be mass-produced.”
I was thinking — always a dangerous event — in August about concept cars and whether or not the car companies made the best decisions about which cars to mass produce. Thankfully, we live in the Internet Age, and whereas our grandparents could not learn easily about concept cars unless they subscribed to specialty magazines, we have a lot more information readily available!
So with the help of other VroomVroomVroom car rental experts, I created this cool infographic to inform you, our blog readers and customers, about several interesting concept cars of the last 6 decades. It even compares them to the models produced by the automotive manufacturers — including Lincoln (a subsidiary of Ford), Pontiac, Toyota, and Peugeot.
I hope you enjoy reading my graphic, and please leave a comment in the Disqus box down below about your favorite car — concept or production — from your driving lifetime!
