Clemson Students Design Mazda Deep Orange 3 Concept

The next generation of design and engineering students are already creating and building concept cars.
Interested in drawing cars for a living? Good at numbers? Then perhaps consider a career in automotive engineering. Forget lame ass accounting and become a car designer or engineer. That’s what these students did at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research. What you’re looking at is the Deep Orange 3 concept, a next-generation Mazda concept car that was conceived and engineered by a group of Clemson students.

The concept’s body panels are the work of Frederick Naaman from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. The final product looks incredible. It has a unique hybrid powertrain that automatically chooses front -, rear-, or all-wheel drive.
There’s also a load-bearing structure based on innovative sheet-folding technology. It also has a 3+3 seating configuration, yet it looks like a sports car. The graduate-level design and engineering program is a regular partnership between the two schools along with Mazda. Going to school has probably never been more fun.
