Some of us may not be planning for the next month or year, so thinking about the methods the world will use to travel in the future might seem irrelevant and even pointless. And yet, in the world of scarce energy resources, one can’t help but wonder what incomprehensible inventions are waiting for us in as far ahead as the world of 2050.
Will we be flying in our personal airborne systems? Or stuck in one giant traffic jam, not going anywhere? Will we use the power of our minds to get from point A to point B (teleportation?) or will we be utterly reliant on alternative energy? It’s hard to tell. So let’s put aside the smart talks about the necessary technological breakthroughs and do something much more inspiring – let’s wonder.

July is definitely a month for car-obsessed people. There are two Formula-1 races taking place in July. Moreover, beginning of the month marks the anniversary of the 3th of July in 1886 when Karl Benz started an engine of the very first automobile, powered by petroleum. Since then 127 years passed by, but engineers and designers still have endless amount of ideas, find out undiscovered designs, unidentified forms and dreams about the life in the future will look like.
Computer graphics is extremely favorable for modeling these fantasies. It allows a designer anything: to play with forms, textures, volumes, colours, to choose radical designs, to apply features of favourite superheroes and to give a vision that a car will make you fly in speed of light. These car models are far from the reality, innovative and hundred years ahead of the casual ones. CGTrader represents a carefully selected gallery of 20 concept car renderings especially for your pleasure. All of them were created using 3D modeling software.
So, let's go for a short trip to the future and take a glance at post-modern vehicles, and simply admire their beauty.

This time we have chosen to take a more thorough look to a category, which has a great impact on the majority of 3D graphic designers. It is cars, without doubt. First of all, no other category on CG Trader database doesn't have so many and so realistic high-class 3D models as this particular one. And secondly, we are still excited about the fourteenth round of the Formula 1 2012 season in Singapore. Congrats to Sebastian Vettel! Also, for more inspiration we recommend to visit www.carbodydesign.com. This is probably one of the best web sites about car design where you can find tutorials, examples, related news and even free models - a perfect place to learn car design tricks.
This professional 3D artist specializes mostly on creating luxurious vintage car models that are real pleasure to watch. This Jaguar is so elegant and attractive that it is hard not to dream about having such car in your garage... The author - Sarunas Vendelskis is a professional artist of 3D modelling from Lithuania and has a great potential. We were wowed while browsing through his website alone.
