“It has innovative engineering inside and out, and it’s all the work of students. A next-generation Mazda concept vehicle, conceived and engineered by Clemson University automotive engineering students at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR), was shown at CAR Management Briefing Seminars for the first time in its finished form. The Deep Orange 3 with body panels designed by student Frederick Naaman at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif., was unveiled at the Center for Automotive Research Management Briefing Seminars.
The Deep Orange program provides students with experience in vehicle design, development, prototyping and production planning. Each year, a prototype vehicle is developed with a new market focus and technical objectives. The project showcases advanced vehicle technologies and provides students an opportunity to work directly with automotive industry partners to innovate and develop ideas."
