Concept cars are a look into the showrooms of tomorrow -- and into the world of cars that never were. Link to the articles below for picture-packed profiles of some of wildest concept cars ever.
Most concept cars are one-of-a-kind jewels built to brighten a carmaker's auto show display. With big fins and bubble tops, concept cars can be pure flights of fancy, like the 1956 Packard Predictor. They can also be disguised versions of near-future production models, like the Oldsmobile Aerotech III.
That's not all. Our articles expand the concept car theme, slipping into automotive design studios to reveal secret proposals left on the cutting room floor.
