Worst Automotive Fear for the Future!

Yeah, thought I'd just create a thread to discuss our fears and some of the amusing ideas that could come from..

*changes voice into retro 50s announcer voice*

"THE CAR OF THE FUTURE..future..future..future..echo.."

So yeah.. aside from the cancellation YET again of the Camaro;

Horsepower wars turn into MPG wars.. meaning:

"Dude.. I'm getting 375mpg with this new filter. You still running the stock filters? Or did you go with the Flowmasters?"


Support MC.com peoples.. $9 bucks. Timmy needs to get that wheelchair into the 10s!

American Muscle will never die.....

I believe there will be hover cars in the future eventually

You can put a Mr Fusion on the back of your car and it will turn trash into energy

Cruise Control will be when your car drives itself but you can switch between that and manual driving

Those seem like good things rather than.. um.. fears.

You mean people get caught in the Mr. Fusion like they do in a wood chipper?

I was going for more of the amusing things of the future but a fear would be a technological takeover or if they did make another source of fuel that all Gasoline powered vehicles would have to be trashed or converted to the new fuel.

Yep, just like Merlin V12s never went away. Only the new V8s will probably end up like this:

Predictable but the camera work was pretty good as well as the soundtrack.
