  • Vazirani Shul concept

    Indian startup Vazirani Automotive used last week's 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed for the premiere of a wild supercar concept the company hopes to put into production someday. Vazirani is the creation of Indian automotive designer Chunky Vazirani, and its concept is an extended-range electric supercar called the Shul. Kazunori Yamauchi, the man behind the "Gran Turismo" video game series, is thought to have guided Vazirani's design team in penning the lines of the exterior, which, perhaps because of color selection, reminds us of the Tuatara concept unveiled by SSC North America back in...

  • Porsche 908/04 Vision Gran Turismo

    Thanks to a lucrative licensing deal with Electronic Arts, Porsches have been notably absent from the Sony Digital Entertainment-owned Gran Turismo video game franchise—but that hasn't stopped a group of automotive designers from coming up with their own Vision Gran Turismo concept bearing Porsche's shield logo.
