The BoldRide Weekly Recap

Boldride

Happy weekend folks! Another week is in the books, and here at BoldRide, there have been a lot of interesting developments in the last seven days regarding future models. Hints, rumors and spy shots always have us stressing about future rides, but we can always decompress with some great father-son activities tomorrow for Father’s Day! Until then, take a load off and before you hit the pool, grille or golf course brush up on the latest reports from BoldRide!

As we stated before, this week has been all about future models. For starters, the Chevy Volt-based Cadillac ELR was spotted out with minimal camouflage:

For all you iPhone owners out there, Apple debuted iOS 7, but the big development was iOS 7 in the Car, an unimaginatively named, yet highly helpful in-car feature that essentially takes over your car’s navigation screen and presents iPhone functions on the digital screen. This is big, and though it may take subsequent versions to get it right, this will be a highly coveted in-car feature:

Our Jeff Perez got an exclusive interview with Rob Spyker, who located and rebuilt a 1907 Spyker. It’s always nice when your distant relatives were carmakers and you can find one of their pieces of work available to restore.

Enjoy the weekend everybody! If you have this empty feeling inside, it means that it has been too long since the last time you filled up on automotive news at BoldRide!
