What this concept could lead to

Discussion in '2002 GM Autonomy Concept' started by mgka, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. This is my prediction of what this idea could lead to:

    You don't buy a complete car, just the "skateboard" chassis, which is distributed in only a few basic forms, such as Utility (large, lots of torque, high ground clearence), Sport (small, low, fast), Large Sedan (Large, smooth driving, moderate ground clearence)
    You would then have a body custom made. This would be fairly inexpensive due to programmable CNC manufacturing, and the fact that the body is just a box with controls and seats in it.
    Completely personalized transportation, for the same cost as a factory built car today. Cool, no?

    yes, but what about aerodynamics and weight?

    This so called car is really just a top for the bottom piece. The bottom piece is the main body of the whole thing. the top can be a pickup, s.u.v, truck (ext and regular cab), minivan, family sedan, or roadster well you get the picture. GM is susposed to have a running model of this next year. This design though will completly revoluntionize the way the automobile will be by the year 2022.<!-- Signature -->
