News Roundup: Two New Volkswagen Group Concepts and One Donated COPO Camaro

Your auto news roundup for the week of 04/10 - 04/17.

The COPO Camaro is a Chevrolet-built drag racer, far different from any normal road-going Camaro.

The COPO is being donated to Barrett-Jackson, who will auction it off at their Palm Beach event. All proceeds from the sale will go to Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans, which helps disabled athletes and veterans return to racing.

ChargePoint Is Working to Make It Easier to Own an Electric Vehicle While Renting an Apartment

If you're a landlord, it could make you a bit of profit, as well.

Electric-vehicle adoption is growing, but at the moment, they're really only ideal for homeowners. After all, most renters don't have landlords nice enough to install thousands of dollars worth of charging equipment, and using the wall-outlet trickle charger alone is not a proper workaround. Strong infrastructure at home can make up for a lack of it out in the real world, so in order to help EV adoption rates rise, there needs to be a solution. Thankfully, ChargePoint's got one.

The Fiat 500 1957 Edition Cabrio Is All About the Show, Not So Much About the Go

This car will make every day Throwback Thursday.

It makes sense to mix together two successful formulas. That's what Fiat is doing right now. It has a popular convertible (the Fiat 500 Cabrio), and it has a popular vintage-looking model (the Fiat 500 1957 Edition), so naturally, the brand is combining the two into the Fiat 500 1957 Edition Cabrio, a name that will strike fear into the hearts of people scared by very long model names.

Will Driverless Cars Turn Highways into Literal Vomitoriums?

Might want to keep a plastic bag in your door pocket.

Chalk this one up under, "I guess we didn't really think about that until now." There are all sorts of things that humanity needs to sort out before fully autonomous vehicles arrive on our roads.

Be Uber Safe, drink and ride when you've had one too many.

In a clever marketing campaign aimed at combating drunk driving, Uber gave free rides to dozens of individuals who failed a breathalyzer test. The livery service teamed up with Breathometer, a company that makes breath analysis hardware to connect to your smartphone, to build the world's first portable breath analysis platform.
