Infiniti Reveals A Retro E-Race Car At Pebble Beach And It Looks Fabulous

No. Nissan’s luxury marque Infiniti did not exists 70 plus years ago. What you are looking here is Prototype 9, the marque’s tribute to the race cars of the olden days. Inspired by 1940s race car, the Prototype 9 was revealed at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

DeLorean ‘Flying Car’ Is Not The DeLorean You Have Come To Expect

DeLorean did not promised us flying cars, but Back to the Future II sure planted that idea into our head. Since then, companies and individuals have not stop trying to make car fly, which now apparently includes the DeLorean. Wait, what? A flying DeLorean? A very interesting prospect that piqued a BTTF fan like me. But unfortunately, it won’t be the DeLorean DMC-12 that will fly. In fact, John DeLorean, the person responsible for the made-famous-by-movie iconic ride, is not behind this ambitious endeavor. Instead, it is Paul DeLorean, the legend’s nephew, and his startup DeLorean Aerospace, who will be making a flying DeLorean a reality.

China’s 2nd Domestically-developed Maglev Train Goes On Trial Operation

The idea of Magnetic Levitation, or Maglev, train system is to eliminate friction so that it can go faster in a more efficient manner, but that does not appear to be the case in China’s newest homegrown Maglev system that kicks into trial operation last week. Train enthusiasts can probably tell from the head carriage which is not shaped to make land speed record, much less going faster than the traffic. It tops out at 100 km/h or about 62 miles an hour, to be exact. I guess the point isn’t about fast since this is only a 10 kilometer (6.2 miles) line which is designed to serve Mentougou and Shijingshan districts in the western Beijing suburbs where metro system is currently lacking.
