Frankfurt Motor Show: the coolest and craziest cars of tomorrow


The 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show shouldn’t disappoint car fans, with new models for 2015, 2016 and beyond, as well as forward-thinking concepts for the automobile of tomorrow. Getting a lot of attention at the Frankfurt auto show was the Porsche Mission E, a futuristic, sleek, fully electric sports car from the German luxury car maker. Unlike anything on the road at the moment, it has no rear view mirrors, but instead relies on cameras to cover the blind spots. Capable of travelling 500 km on a single charge, it can replenish its batteries within minutes.

A taste of the car of the future according to its maker: “Since with a concept car you would like to really give a glimpse of the future, you have as a designer much more freedom. You can dare to do things that at least nowadays are not yet legal, but you hope that they will become legal in the future. So we have more freedom,” says chief designer Michael Mauer.

Another concept car that caught attention in Frankfurt was the Mercedes Intelligent Aerodynamic Automobile. A one-off showcase of the brand’s aerodynamic prowess, it boasts a drag coefficient of just 0.19. To accomplish this unprecedented level of slipperiness, Mercedes has developed a dynamic, adaptable body structure that literally changes shape with the push of a button. Even the wheels reduce their indentation to become completely flat, allowing air to slip down the car’s sides.

According to Steffen Koehl, head of Global Advanced Design at Mercedes-Benz, “all the ingredients that are transforming here, that are changing several areas of the car, are technologically totally needed to achieve this fantastic aerodynamic value.”
