this an example of making good use of spares. spotted on the road was a DeLorean DMC-12 with, what appeared to be another DMC-12 hot on its heels but it turns out be a trailer that was created out of the DeLorean spares. this could be an idea too late as Doc could have use this extra space to tow back the stuff he collected from the future. right, Doc? Doc, you reading this? i was blessed to have the opportunity to sit inside of this fine brushed stainless steel example a couple of years ago and it delights me to see a trailer version too. though, i probably won’t be able to own one (the car and the trailer) myself. check out the license plate on the trailer ‘De Tail‘…hmmm i like!

curious car tech enthusiasts might be wondering when was the first hybrid automobile ever built? apparently, it turns out to be Porsche and it was in the year 1900. dubbed the ‘Semper Vivus‘ (‘always alive’), this serial hybrid drive automobile has two engines charging the batteries and the Porsche electric hub motors provides the drive power. check out the protruding hub at the front wheels. well, i supposed it looks kind of futuristic for a piece of 1900s machine, albeit still looking like a horse carriage in general. it took Porsche four years to recreate this ground breaking innovation by Ferdinard Porsche and since its recreation, it has graced the recent Geneva Motor Show. the recreated Semper Vivus is destined to be part of the collection in the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart.

Manta Amphibious Vehicle by David Cardoso Loureiro image4 600x420px

another concept that draws our attention, however, being a concept, it may not necessary be practical. so let’s just bear that in mind when we are viewing a concept. the Manta is a three-wheel amphibious personal transport designed to run on a pair of electric motors driving the rear wheels. the rear wheels also doubles as the vehicle’s propulsion when in water. the sports wheels are designed to be real working propellers, so when the rear wheels are turned 90 degree, the wheels becomes the propeller for the vehicle. each wheel would be individually powered, which in theory, could enable steering of the vehicle in the water. but i would imagine the huge turning radius it would make. being independently powered means some form of synchronization has to be in place to ensure that both wheels are traveling at the same speed when traveling on land. nevertheless, the idea and the aesthetic is great. i will take two!
