Tesla may introducean electric pickup in 2019

in Lux Life/News by

Tesla is going to be busy in the following months and years. It is still working on Model 3s to meet all the demand.The company also has a plan for a crossover named Model Y, is bringing their first semi-truck to the market, andlast but not leastis working on the next Roadster. The firm is always busy, which is a good thing. Now, they are also designing a pickup truck. Co-founder and CEO Elon Musk recently wanted feedback from Twitter on the form of the truck, and announceda potential prototype reveal.

“What would you love to see in a Tesla pickup? I have a few things in mind, but what do you think are small but important nuances, and what would be seriously next level?” he asked back in June.

He then confirmed some basic specifications. The model is still unnamed, and will be about the same size as the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado. It will have a dual-motor all-wheel drive, a ton of torque, and self-leveling suspension. One thing others do not have are 360-degree cameras to make parking easier. Finally, it will have a 240Vpower outlet.

Some Twitter users wanted individual torque control for each wheel, while others said they need physical buttons as touch screens are difficult to use with work gloves. One user wants the amphibious capability.

Musk already mentioned how the core design and the elements of engineering have been in his head for years, and that he wants to build it so bad. He also faces competition, as a Michigan startup Rivian turned headset the 2018 LA Auto Show with a battery-electric pickup R1T. This month, Musk tweeted that the companymay show the prototype next year. This means the truck will not be available at least until 2020.

What is next?

We may also see a second truck from them. They showed a sketch briefly of a giant EV during the semi unveiling in November of 2017. This one would be much bigger than Ford F-150, and carrying an F-150 in the cargo bed. Although sketches tend to be misleading, the model seems to pick up where the International XT left off. Elon Musk described this concept as “a pickup truck that can carry a pickup truck.” He said, “We created a pickup truck version of the Tesla semi. It’s a pickup truck that can carry a pickup truck. By the way, you will actually be able to drive that with a normal driver’s license.” he said in the presentation. Very interesting indeed. We will have to be patient until more details become available.

15 Times Truckers Went Too Far with Their Mods (+Bonus Photos and Video)

in Lux Life by

Who doesn’t like a good truck mod?! We all tend to be amazed by a good modified truck. Even though truck modifications can cost a fortune, truck enthusiastsdon’t seem to care. However, there are several instances when truck owners took a step too far when modifying their custom trucks. So, when modifying trucks turns into an obsession, the truck owners can go above and beyond in terms of modifications. If you think that you’ve seen it all, keep reading.

15. KW Truck Trike

Source:hotcars.com

This trucker owner took a step too far to modify a truck which is also a trike, or three-wheeled bike. It isn’t only eye-catching but also an incredibly useless truck trike.

14. The Pig Food Art Truck

Source:hotcars.com

This truck was converted as a food truck and although it might attract customers and be good for business, it definitely isn’t good for driving around. The too much metal on it definitely adds a lot of weight.

13. Retro 1930s PurplePickup

Source:hotcars.com

You must be wondering what kind of person makes a purple pickup with tinted windows and so so we! This mod definitely went too far and there seems to be no going back.

12. Japanese DekotoraTruck

Source:hotcars.com

The colourful Japanese dekotora trucks are a perfect example of mods going too far. This one isn’t only colourful but also featured LED neon lights. So much colour is too much!

11. Stretch Monster Truck

Source:youtube

This stretch monster truck would only work on auto shows and nowhere else. A stretch truck is just a step too far when it comes to truck modifications.

10. Comic Creation Trucks

Source:hotcars.com

The owners of these trucks must be comic fanatics! One is definitely inspired by some darker side, while the other by Superman, The Hulk, and lots of Batman villains. They definitely need that superheroes’ force as they’re set for racing.

9. Flame Patterns Truck

Source:hotcars.com

Even though many dekotora truck enthusiasts will consider this custom paint job too subtle, this flame patterns truck is really eye-catching.

8. Age Extinction Truck

Source:hotcars.com

Another flame-inspired truck which looks truly garish. The flame motif doesn’t seem to go out of style.

7. Dekotora Interior

Source:cnn.com

The dekotora aficionados don’t only decorate the outside of a vehicle but also the inside. Can you imagine that someone spent a fortune on decorating the interior of their truck only to look like this? Neither can we.

6. Hummer in Gold

Source:hotcars.com

This monster truck was quite popular in the 1990s, but its fame didn’t last. However, Hummer owners didn’t give up on their vehicle. One such example is this Hummer with a gold custom paint job.

5. BosozokuStyle Truck

Source:hotcars.com

Did you know what dekotora trucks aren’t the only extravagantly decorated trucks in Japan? Many truck owners also opt for bosozuku, a Japanese youth subculture. Even though this term is mostly associated with street racing cars, nothing stopped this truck owner from implementing it on his truck.

4. Japanese Films-Inspired Truck

Source:hotcars.com

Another truck which comes from Japan is this truck which was inspired by a series of Japanese films called Truck Guys. The owner definitely spent tons of money on chrome, custom paint, and neon lights.

3. KB Ditch Digger Truck

Source:hotcars.com

The KB Ditch Digger Truck was a hit on the SEMA show in 2015. Such a retro style is quite rare to see on truck mods. We only hope that this vintage vehicle goes as good on the road as it looks.

2. Off-Road Green-Eyed Monster

Source:hotcars.com

This off-road truck is perfect for the roughest terrain, but its colour definitely isn’t. The off-road green-eyed monster comes with neon green paint job which couldn’t be more noxious.

1. Colourful Indian Truck

Source:hotcars.com

Just as colourful as the traffic jams are in India, this truck isn’t only rich in colour, but also in religious symbols. The symbols feature many vibrant and striking imagesof the Hindu and Sikh religions. This truck is a great example of what to expect on the roads in colourful India.

20 Pontiac Firebird Most Beautiful Photos

in Lux Life by

When we talk about the American cars several brands come to our mind. Some of these brands are still notable such as Chevrolet or Ford but there’s one brand that we tend to forget and which is a classic American – Pontiac.

Pontiac launched one of the most authentic vehicles called the Firebird. It was designed to compete with the Ford Mustang primarily, but the name “Firebird” wasn’t as revolutionary as many people think. General Motors used the same name for their model that came out in the 1950s. Despite being years in production and several generations were changed the most unique model was the 1978 Pontiac Trans Am Special Edition.

The car received even more famed when it appear in the film called Smokey and the Bandit. It was the movie that came out in 1977 and had any other car been used, the film would not have been what it is today. The traditional car has a long history indeed and to honor it, with no specific reason, we have decided to show you 20 most beautiful photos of the Pontiac Firebird.

As much as love for your motorcycle or car is big , so is the commitment to the manufacturer of that vehicle.

2. The open road and what it signifies

I wonder, what other motorcycle and car enthusiasts are thinking about every morning when they wake up. So, what else would they thinking about, else than about their toys?

13 Of the Mightiest V8s Today

in Lux Life by

There is something about V8 engines that is simply indescribable. Inline 6 and V12 offer a smoother ride but are just too long for many models. Inline 4 offers a better economy, but don’t have nearly enough power for some of the monsters on our list. V8s seem to be a golden middle ground when it comes to a compromise between the size and power output. For decades they have been used in pretty much any machine that used gasoline engines, from cars and planes to boats and motorcycles. They have been refined multiple times. Some are still naturally aspired, while other used single or double turbos, allowing for a smaller size and weight. Regardless of that, a powerful V8 remains the symbol of a fast and powerful car.

13. Jaguar F-TYPE SVR Coupe (575HP)

One of the main selling points of a V8 engine, apart from the massive power, is its amazing sound. Jaguar measured its F-type SVR’s exhaust and the result was 108 dB, almost enough to cause a permanent hearing damage.

Whatever the location you choose, remember to consider weather effects so that you can be able to use it regardless of the weather season. With some creativity and some DIY skills, you can convert any space whether indoors or outdoors into the haven that you want!

  1. The purpose of your man cave

What do you need to do with your man cave? The answer to this question will determine how the place will be laid out and decorated. It will also determine the kind of equipment that needs to be installed. Maybe you are someone who loves the indoor sport like the foosball, ping pong, darts, or poker. Then you will have to install the various game tables for the game.

You could also be a techy guy who loves video games and PC console games. Then you will have to install the video game and PC Console accessories with the relevant game library. You will also need the right furniture that has been specifically designed for these. This is necessary for your comfort because you will spend many hours here.

  1. Décor and Entertainment

The type of décor and entertainment will be determined by your budget. If you are running on a tight budget, then consider painting the room and purchasing second-hand furniture. You can also incorporate some DIY home décor skills without overspending.

Decorating your man cave will also depend on its purpose. You can choose to go with brighter theme colors like white and cream or deeper classic theme colors such as navy and green. Have some decorative paintings on the wall and hang lovely portraits. The room should also be spacious enough to accommodate you and your guests.

Invest in a flat screen TV of at least 60 inches or more depending on your budget. You can also consider using a projector to project your screen on the wall. Install a good sound system like the jukebox, a turntable and powerful speakers that will take the room to a different level.

Choose the right furniture to make the room classic and vibrant. Invest in very nice sofas with a few pillows for comfort and style. The sofas should be accompanied by matching ottomans with a coffee table for maximum comfort. You can have a beautiful floor carpet that matches with the furniture.

Remember you will not be just sitting down. You will need some activities to keep you and your guests active. You can have a darts board on the wall, a pool table, a foosball table, a karaoke machine, a video game system and any other tool that will make you and your guest laugh and have a memorable great time.

  1. Have a classic bar

A bar is a must for a perfect man cave. Invest in a Kegerator and a fully stocked bar that has a good selection of beer, Vodka, and Whiskey. This is so important because you don’t want to leave your hideaway just to look for refreshments. You can also include snacks and your favorite junk foods. Set aside some shelves where you can store your plates, wine glasses, other cutleries, and napkins.

Bottom line

Since this is going to be your sanctuary, make it the way you want it and not what your friends have. This is a place that should leave you happy and relaxed. So be creative and enjoy!
