Polestar has unveiled a convertible sports car concept called the O2, pronounced “oh-too,” just like the like the oxygen molecule. The concept is based on a shortened version of Polestar's own aluminum bonded platform debuting in the Polestar 5, and with any luck we'll see it enter production to take on Tesla's second-generation Roadster.
Remember how Ford didn't want to let Tesla use the Model E name? Well, now we know why. The Blue Oval has launched a dedicated division focused on electric vehicles and software development under the Model E name. Although a part of Ford, it will operate like a standalone business to enable Ford to better compete with fast-moving companies like Tesla and Nio.
Jerry Seinfeld is known for his love of Porsches, and even though he has a huge collection of them, he isn't prone to getting rid of some, even star cars like the Carrera GT. In fact, a stunning 2004 example once owned by the funny man is currently up for sale. And yes that's Jerry Seinfeld, not Gerry Seinfeld.
