    Steve_S : Assuming GM can find the cash to make it that far.

    Many of you guys clearly have no idea what you're talking about. As a design engineer, let me assure you that in any other industry this would be an absolute disgrace. This is a show product, meant to impress at first glance. Even pre-production prototype toasters are gone over with a fine tooth comb and QA out the whazoo. Future (often contract) sales are on the line. In many cases display prototypes actually perform better than production models for this very reason. GM is no different, if it offers detritus rather than 'the best it has to offer' as its showpiece, future sales are most definitely on the line. This car wouldn't have been ready for a 1957 Motorama exhibit. Most SEMA attendees are not idiots, they've seen what others have on offer presently and previously, and can spot a dog without any coaching. This car is and will be a dog, quality wise, if this is the best GM can do, it best stay on the porch. Desperation to show "something" new is all I can think of for putting this car on display as-is. Instead, what it shows is that GM barely cares anymore.

  • Lou_BC I realized it wasn't EV's burning by the absence of the usual suspects.
  • Kwik_Shift A manual bug eye WRX wagon (2001-03) would interest me more.
  • El scotto Ferrari develops a way to put a virtual car in real time traffic? Will it be multiple virtual players in a possible infinite number of real drivers in real time situations?This will be one of the greatest things ever or a niche video game.
  • El scotto It's said that many military regulations are written in blood. Every ship's wheel or aircraft joystick has a human hand on it at all times when a ship or aircraft are under power. Tanks, APC's and other ground vehicles probably operate under the same rules. Even with those regulations accidents still happen. There is no such thing as an unmanned autopilot, ever. Someone has to be on the stick at all times.I do not think MB understands what a sue-happy nation the USA is. The 1st leased MB in a wreck while this Type 3 "Semi-Autonomous" driving, or whatever it is called, will result in an automatic lawsuit. Expect a class action lawsuit after the 1st personal lawsuit is filed. Yes, new MB owners can afford and ever are lawyers.Mercedes Benz; "The best wrecks or nothing!" Oh and has anyone noticed that Toyota/Lexus and Honda/Acura, the gray suit with white shirt and striped tie, automobile companies have stayed away from any autonomous driving nonsense?
  • Merc190 Very streamlined but not distinctive enough for a Mercedes. And besides, the streetcar of the early 20th century seems a far more efficient and effective method of people moving in essentially an autonomous manner. A motor car is meant to be driven with proper attention to what's important in every situation. To design it otherwise is idiotic and contradictory.
