DailyDirt: Cars You Can't Buy (Yet?)

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

There are plenty of cool cars that are just too expensive for most people to even think about buying, but sometimes the really cool cars are the ones that aren't even quite ready to be sold (Tesla SUV, anyone?). Gull wing doors and exotic metal alloys are usually the key parts of concept vehicles and prototype cars. Here are just a couple cars you might have seen and a prediction of what we'll all be driving in the next few decades. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    Re: Nuke cars -- great idea.

    Shielding would still seem like a slightly problematic topic to leave to a common user.
    Even for people with knowledge it might be problematic if the car gets damaged in a traffic accident or just from normal decay of the battery. You can probably do a lot to avoid spills, but then price becomes a problem.
    Basically some of the same problems appear in nuclear power plants today even though it is far easier to justify high safety standards when you can produce to a lot of people at the same time and thereby spread the economic burden.
