Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, is now the richest man in the world as his current net worth of over $185 billion has just exceeded Jeff Bezos’ $184 billion.

Bezos, who’s been the richest person since 2017, has succumbed to Musk’s rapid wealth surge over the past year. That rise is the fastest one to the top in history, and it makes for a substantial turnaround for Musk, who, less than two years ago, was making headlines for Tesla’s rapid cash burn.

Musk passed Warren Buffett in July to become the seventh-richest person, and Bill Gates in November to become the world’s second-richest person. As wild as it sounds, Musk has amassed more wealth in the past year than Bill Gates’ entire $132 billion net worth.

Aside from his exploits at Tesla, Musk is also the founder, CEO, CTO and chief designer of SpaceX, founder of The Boring Company, co-founder of Neuralink, and co-founder and initial co-chairman of OpenAI.

He started 2020 with a worth of “only” about $27 billion, which is by no means bad, but meant he was barely in the top 50 of the world’s richest people. However, thanks to Tesla’s share price increasing more than nine-fold over the past year, he was able to add more than $150 billion to his net worth and is now the richest person on the planet.

Yesterday morning, Musk pinned an older tweet of his to the top of his Twitter feed, likely to share with the public his thoughts on spending his wealth. The tweet reads “About half my money is intended to help problems on Earth, and half to help establish a self-sustaining city on Mars to ensure continuation of life (of all species) in case Earth gets hit by a meteor like the dinosaurs or WW3 happens and we destroy ourselves.”

Pretty lofty aspirations indeed. Will he go through with them? Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

BMW於2017年法蘭克福車展上推出BMW i Vision Dynamics概念車時,外界似乎對那巨大的雙腎型水箱護造還沒什麼感覺,反正概念車麻!設計一定比較前衛;然而在2019年法蘭克福車展上推出Concept 4概念車上還是出現那碩大的雙腎型水箱護罩,這時外界才注意到它,開始熱議它會不會導入在當時尚未推出的G22車款上。

2020年6月,G22正式發表果不其然真的換上了巨大雙腎型水箱護罩,引起不少死忠粉絲哀號,直呼好醜,背離了原廠的經典設計語彙!同年11月,電動車iX發表了,也採用同款式的水箱護罩。這次前BMW設計師Frank Stephenson在自己的Youtube頻道上發表了一部剖析BMW iX電動車設計的影片,片中他點出了水箱護罩過大影響了視覺效果,也提到這款車是設計師的作品,不是汽車設計師的,它是一輛失去靈魂的車。

在他覺得BMW iX設計的不好,因為它感覺上更像是由產品設計師而非汽車設計師的作品,如果這是冰箱的設計那看起來會很好,但是這是一輛車,車在設計上必須帶給人有速度與運動的感覺,而這正是iX所缺乏的。

此外,他然認iX的前水箱護罩真的太大,導致整輛車少了視覺張力,儘管原廠表示iX是採極簡主義的設計,但他認為這種設計太過簡單了,這幾乎是一輛失去靈魂的汽車。

Frank Stephenson的意思並不是在批評iX的設計師。但是產品看起來像產品,而汽車看起來得像汽車,產品設計師跟汽車設計師兩者是不同領域的。如果你把iX車頭那碩大的雙腎式水箱護罩拿掉,你還看得出這是輛BMW嗎?

Frank Stephenson是BMW X5(E53)的設計師,曾被美國汽車雜誌《Motor Trend》譽為這個時代最有影響力的汽車設計師之一。他曾參與Ferrari、Maserati,與McLaren等品牌旗下經典車款的車輛設計。

近來新一代 Toyota Land Cruiser 測試車首度被捕獲,證實即將大改款傳聞,接下來間接也越來越多相關消息傳出,目前 Land Cruiser 最有可能捨棄舊式大排氣量引擎,轉而靠攏 RAV4 的 2.5 升油電與 E-Four 四驅技術。

新一代 Land Cruiser 貌似擁有更優渥的車室空間。

Land Cruiser 享有陸地巡洋艦美名,是豐田旗下定位相當高的越野型休旅,台灣去年底才針對血緣濃厚的 Land Cruiser Prado 動力規格換新,殊不知海外已經著手進行大改款工程。

Land Cruiser 向來以大排氣量引擎為主,但隨著日漸嚴苛的排放政策,未來勢必得針對動力技術換新,以目前豐田產品布局來看,相當有可能採用 RAV4 身上的 2.5 升油電引擎,其中還配有 E-Four 相關四驅技術,讓 Land Cruiser 維持越野能力特色。

車身尺碼將來到 4,970x1,985x1,870mm,長寬都比現行版增加,軸距預期有所放大,進一步提升車室空間表現。內部預期有 5 人座以及 3 排座椅 8 人座的配置,內裝鋪陳方面更強調科技感,原本的 8 吋觸控螢幕將升級為 12.3 吋,並加入全套最新主動安全系統。
