2014 Corvette C7 Drawings Revealed

Even though GM tried, they were not able to keep the new generation of the Corvette a complete secret until they official unveiling on January 13, 2013 as they originally planned to do. These sketches are from a member of the Corvette forums named “BlueOX”, and the member had this to say:

“I don’t work for GM or anyone associated with GM. I have, for months, been sent information by a variety of people ahead of what has been published.  Why, I’m not sure. Until now, I have kept it all to myself. What you will ultimately see here is all I have and I cannot vouch for it’s authenticity.”

Although BlueOx can’t/won’t say it they’re real or not, from what we can tell, these sketches look legit. These drawings show the seventh generation Corvette’s profile, rear end design with the very Camaro-like tail lamps, and more importantly, a detailed outline of the interior, including the driver-centric dashboard. Check out the sketches in the gallery below.

2013 Toyota Avalon is the First Car to Get Wireless In-Car Charging

As part of its Technology Package, the 2013 Toyota Avalon Limited has become the first vehicle in the world to offer Qi wireless charging. Qi, the global standard for wireless power and charging, has been integrated into both the gasoline and hybrid variants of the Avalon limited and by placing devices on, or near any Qi-enabled surface, you will be able to charge any device.

Owners of the Avalon Limited with the Technology Package can now charge their devices with the wireless charging pad located in the “ebin” lid found in the vehicle’s center console. The Qi wireless charging currently works with 34 mobile phone models as well as gaming controllers, Blu-ray Disc recorders, smartphone docking speakers, alarm clocks, and more. Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Automatic High beams, and a Pre-Collision System is also included in the Technology Package.

“Pioneering the ability to charge with no wires or connectors by simply putting devices in the car console is an intuitive innovation which reflects Toyota‘s continuing commitment to improve the consumer experience,” said Avalon chief engineer Randy Stephens. “We see wireless charging as an important feature that helps enhance the high-technology theme and consumer interface offered by Avalon Limited which is already equipped with three TFT color screens and Intellitouch controls.”

 

Extreme Road Rage Video

Thanks to dashboard cameras, the internet is full of thrilling and sometimes disturbing road rage videos. However, none of those are nearly as extreme as this one, especially because this video made it to national television. The video begins with two guys having a fender bender somewhere in Brisbane, Australia and end up becoming a short horror film.

The guy in the black UTE chases the man in the silver truck for like ten minutes and rams into his car seven times to make him stop. He continues to get out of the car, jumps on the hood, and smashes the windshield with his bare knuckles. Who knows, maybe this guy was having a bad day. Nevertheless, he is now on the run, but thanks to the dash cam, the police have a clear image of him.
