The students at Clemson University's International Center for Automotive Research have unveiled their latest concept car, called Deep Orange 5. This one has help from General Motors and imagines an egg-shaped, connected car for future cities.
BMW seems willing to exploit every automotive niche it can find with creations like the four-door, 'crossover coupe' X4 and X6. Of course, these designs come with a compromise. That svelte fastback means that they just can't haul as much cargo as a more traditional, boxier hatchback. Fortunately, students at Clemson University's International Center for Automotive Research might have a novel solution: the engineering graduate program has turned the crossover into a unique pickup.
