This is the ’20 Karma Revero, caught testing outside the Karma Automotive R&D facility in Costa Mesa, California, and looking very Corvette-esque.

In a bid to shed the old Fisker roots, Karma will revise the Revero’s looks significantly with all-new front and rear ends. The updates should include new headlights, a new grille and a longer hood that extends further down its front end. At the back is a new taillight design to enhance the revised rear end.

Karma is set to introduce a smaller version of the car—the Atlantic—sometime in 2019. A change from the old GM-based engine may come at the same time.

Expect to see new Karmas in 2019.

 

Here’s a first look at the ’19 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in a regular cab “work truck” configuration. Up until now, we’ve seen only crew and super crew variants. The Silverado regular cab is equipped with an 8-ft. bed.

The new Silverado will continue with refinements on the current V8 engines but is also expected to get a diesel and a mild hybrid option on the half-ton models. The Duramax diesel currently comes on only heavy-duty trucks. A turbocharged V6 is also likely to join the lineup. A 10-speed automatic first seen in the Camaro ZL1 will find its way into at least some trucks at launch.

Expect to see the new Silverado in late 2018 as a ’19 model.


Porsche Mission E Breaks Cover

Porsche is building an all-electric sedan, the Mission E, and these are the first shots of it.

Spied trying to hide its true EV intentions with fake tailpipes, the Mission E—initially introduced as a concept at the 2015 Frankfort Motor Show—is Porsche’s first real step toward an all-electric vehicle.

The Mission E will be complete with a battery pack that will reportedly last more than 330 miles. It is said to accelerate from 0–60 in 3.5 sec. and on to 125 mph in less than 12 sec. It will also be able to recharge 80% of its driving range within 15 min., thanks to the use of an 800V system.
