Many semi-cool reveals at CES this year. And thankfully, they are not all wearing the same shade of Apple-knockoff white plastic for bodywork!
Oh wait, all the cars are the same silver this year? Delightful.
This biggest headlines were undoubtedly for the Faraday Future FF91, a Tesla Model X rival that actually seems super smart and innovative. If not exactly sexy, the design is certainly unique and practical. This FF91 flagship is production-bound with a direct-to-consumer sales model that also takes great inspiration from Tesla.
The Toyota Concept I is silly fun, while the Chrysler Portal is slightly more serious. The Portal concept, for some reason, looks like it has had a hard life already. Why does this car seem so beat up like a test mule?
Perhaps the semi-deconstructed style is what gives the falling-to-pieces impression of the Portal.
Nothing is as absurd as the BMW i calamity they just rolled on stage with — get this — a bunch of books stacked on the floor in the back seat.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, indeed.
Special mention for the Nissan Leaf with revised LEDs and NISMO-inspired style. The Nissan trike looks pretty sweet too.
Here are our top ten from CES 2017.
