This was basically Cadillac’s strategy when the Art and Science language came into being. Most focus groups they tested were always nearly 50/50 love/hate with very little in between, and that despite nearly half the people hating it they still came out ahead with people who strongly connected with the look.
That being said, I’m probably one of the few people here that likes BMW’s new design direction, and thought they have been pretty boring from 2006 onward. Big sniffers have precedent in their history.

Silent Generation made the best car designs and they have been retired/dead for a while now.
The show is run by literal soibois now. Also, cars not designed for the euromarket as priority now since that isn't where the money is anymore.

merc eqfag car are ugly and bloated with curvy lines to stretch the EV range to the highest possible number.

they sacrificed design for EV range since consumers cannot think of anything else other than screens and range

Aptera is an extreme example, but I'm actually looking forward to the trend of modern Super Aero cars.
So many cars today are just too visually busy with fake aero features instead of having true clean simple aero.

I wonder if this would actually be possible and still have an airbag. Would it go through the screen or would it come out of the dash and overlap the steering wheel?

Battery failures are extremely rare. On average, EVs last longer, need less maintenance, and cost less to run versus an ICEV.

EV do not pay taxes and are reduced in price due to subsidies and tax cuts.
EV are a lot more expensive and battery failure is only a matter of time as with all batteries.

The funny thing about this image being used against Tesla is that Windows is a closed source OS, if Microsoft decides to break something, or drop support for something you have zero recourse.
GNU/Linux on the other hand is open source, and available for people to fix themselves if something goes wrong, and nothing can ever really be dropped as long as somebody is interested in maintaining it.

Tesla cars run GNU/Linux. Third-party controller hardware for them already exists, people repair them, or use Tesla parts to build their own EVs. Tesla's cars are great.
Its the charging network that's the problem.

Meanwhile as you wrote this there are 100 year old Ford model T s on their second or 3rd engine still rolling around. You can barely go 3 years without your vehicle catching on fire.

>>26296123
the funny thing about your post is that it hardly matters what OS your shitmobile runs, your mechanic still won't know what to do with it, the manufacturer/government can still remotely disable it and it can still shit itself due to glitches from badly written software.

If you ran windows on a car the blue screen of death would be an actual screen of death.
As it would be the last thing you see as your kernel panicking car sails of I-95 to an hero.

If self driving ever gets sorted out, I’d expect the center of consumer electronics to immediately shift to the inside of cars.
I’d expect the normalfag fanfare to be something like this:
>hooray, I can text on my phone the whole drive now!
>Oh wait, I can use my laptop full time as well…
>Oh wait, I can run a whole desktop in here…
It will pretty much come down to a battle between Apple, Microsoft, The Carmakers themselves, and Linux as to who will be the victor of this new ecosystem.
I’d prefer that Linuxchads won it out, but FAGMAN really does know how to cast a spell on normalnigs, so idk bros.
I just think it would be a hilarious monkey’s paw if the most popular Linux desktop distribution ever, ended up being… Tesla OS.
