30 Years Hence ....

Apart from the fact that I'll more than likely be either (1) sitting on a mantlepiece in a little jar (2) completely (as opposed to partially) senile or (3) still living every day as if it's 1978 in the grip of an Alzheimers induced Groundhog Day; my mind started wondering what performance cars would be like 30 years from now.

This is largely tongue in cheek rather than a serious analysis of likely trends but we might as well base a few things on fact for the sake of some ground rules.

Assumptions

1. Fossil fuels will either be non existent or hideously expensive. A fair bet.
2. Drivers will still be allowed to retain some control over the actual driving process. Not likely but it's theory so I can hope.
3. Ford will still exisit in Australia as a manufacturer.

Introducing the 2034 PEEFPV (Prodrive Enhanced Environmentally Friendly Performance Vehicles) GT-H

Multimedia Press Release

Further underwritng PEEFPV's committment to bringing excitement to the multicultural Australian performance enthusiast we are proud to announce the all new 2034 model GT-H (GT-Hybrid). With a 40 kW hydrogen fuel cell, a torquey 200 kW electric motor and our newly developed battery pack made from the finest unobtanium, here is a vehicle for the performance enthusiast that takes the environment seriously.

The all-new CVT transmission ensures that the optimum rpm is maintained at all times for maximum fuel efficiency.

The 26 x 5" sports titanium wheels shod with 145/15 tyres ensure low rolling resistance whilst offering the ultimate in cornering grip thanks to the 100% silica tread on the Dunlop EnviroMax tyres.

Styling further refines the PEEFPV "aero" theme first seen in the widely acclaimed 2002 Ford Taurus and with a Cd of 0.15 plus a small frontal area the vehicle slips quietly through the air. New for 2034 are the retro look side stripes available in a range of tasteful colours and the option of full wheel spats to further improve aero efficiency.

Braking performance has also been further refined with a revised electric brake feeding 90% of kinetic energy to the battery pack, yet still able to stop the vehicle from the electronically controlled top speed of 90 km/h in 30 metres.

With seating for 3 people, the interior appointments have been designed with the enthusiast in mind from the fully instrumented heads up display (with purple lighting and including a tachometer) to the sports seating and solar powered tri-zone climate control system, you are always in control.

For 2034 the colour palette has been further increased to allow more individual choice in a range of safety day-glo colours and the colour is now impregnated into the composite panels for a clearer and more durable finish. 2034 also sees the reintroduction of two classic colours (updated for todays modern look); Acidic Citric and Plasma Orange.

For more information please videophone your nearest multi franchise dealer or find them on the web at peefpv.com.au.

Cheers
Russ

Re: 30 Years Hence ....

I really dread to think about this and what is installed for the future of not only Ford but all manufacturer's in the vehicle industry in the not to distant future, the word "Performance" will take own a whole new meaning.

At least the range per tank has increased in 30 years.
