    With respect to the last segment of today’s show. I found it quite laborious to extract from any vernacular the exact thesis from the rejoinder of the question posed. Perhaps a more succinct and direct response would courier dare say foster a better understanding of social impact to a evolving transportation model.

  2. Chuck Grenci Says:

    @1; I think you hit the nail on the head. Scholastic blathering is what occurred to me.

    As to BMW and Jaguar’s effort; two thumbs down (for both). JMO Too angular on the BMW and too what were thinking and trying to project into the future (seems the Jaguar was wasting a lot of space for the sake of style).

    Sorry for the negative narrative on today’s topics.

    @1 ahh What?

  4. Lambo2015 Says:

    I did find Carla Bailos from OSU comment about people not knowing what an autonomous car is thinking quite funny though. Its thinking the same thing your laptop and I-phone are.. Whatever they were programed to think.
    But I understand she was referring to the unpredictability of a machine and not having the intuitive thinking some of us posses as we drive. Being able to recognize a drunk driver or anticipate someone stepping off a curb because their face is buried in their phone. Hard to program intuition.

    Wow,where the hell did you find mary marshmallow and susie creamcheese?

  6. David Sprowl Says:

    I doubt the general public gave much thought the to social implications of the automobile in the early 1900′s. Roads, laws, dating, and architecture evolved to answer new challenges and opportunities as societies evolved. Example, the parlor went and the garage came built with the house. USB and cell phone charging are now coming to every car built now. Did not need a ton of study to make those things occur. In short the public will drive adaptation.

  7. Lambo2015 Says:

    I agree with you David. The social impact and adjustments will be made regardless of any study. Lots of time and money will likely be wasted to see how autonomous cars deal with folks exiting a car from the drivers door.. But on an autonomous car which one is the drivers door? I guess it gives those Right brained people something to do.

  8. Dave Says:

    If it wasn’t obvious before, the X7 is proof that BMW fired everyone in their design studio.

  9. Kit Gerhart Says:

    The X7 concept makes me think, does the world really need and $20K more expensive, less reliable Expedition and Tahoe? Probably not.

  10. G.A.Branigan Says:

    @ Dave & Kit: LMAO. If I had to describe it in one word,that word would be ‘fugly’. The ‘designers’ at bmw need to lay off getting drunk and or stoned at work. Jeep has that part covered…

  11. Lambo2015 Says:

    @10 What designers at Jeep? Oh the one guy that changed the Jeep headlights from round to square then back to round and then added 2 doors.

    Its about the only vehicle that when parked next to its 1944 CJ version is unmistakably the same vehicle. 73 years of making the same design.

  12. Kit Gerhart Says:

    @10 …but they extra super sized the CJ, in coming up with the current Wrangler.

  13. G.A.Branigan Says:

    @ Kit: Yeah they did.But I will say this,out of almost 35 years of having 4×4 vehicles, my 2001 cherokee,and my 08 jk,were off road animals in stock form.

    Never the extreme stuff,just old logging and mining trails,but down in 4 low and crawling along the washouts etc. Great fun.

    If any of you never tried it,there are places where you can rent a jk,and go through their trails.

  14. Kit Gerhart Says:

    G.A., The jk, “momster wrangler” to me, goes back farther than I realized. Renting one, in the right location sounds like fun.

  15. Bob Wilson Says:

    #1 has it right.

    When I tried to follow the verbal spew, I thought someone who doesn’t drive was discussing how cars of the future will hookup for a date.

  16. David Sprowl Says:

    From my vantage point, mobility services is nothing more than an economically induced privatization of public transportation. The freedom enjoyed by generations of drivers driving is going to be lost by the shear expense of adding technology for various reasons to the design and manufacturing of the car. Most will soon be unable to afford a car of their own. The masses will be forced into car sharing at least and bus sharing by the most. The genie is now out of the bottle. The only way to reverse this trend, if at all will be for the cost of the car to come down (doubtful this will occur) or for pay to rapidly and massively increase (yet another unlikely event.

  17. Kit Gerhart Says:

    From my vantage point, “mobility services” sound like an alternative to taxis.

  18. G.A.Branigan Says:

    @ Kit: You love to drive,but driving off road in 4 low,gives you a whole new driving experience.It’s a ton of fun,and I think you would like it. Off roaders are fun loving,and family oriented.

  19. Kit Gerhart Says:

    G.A., I’ll have to try it sometime, if I have the chance. Sounds like a very different type of motorized fun.

  20. wmb Says:

    While it was based on the styling of earlier models, the previous generation Ranger Rover was designed and engineered by BMW, to critical acclaim! Once the glitter, sparkles and shiny bits have all been removed and we get a closer look at the production vehicle, my hope is that we will be pleasantly surprised. My only draw back is the square-ish, boxy/blockish overall shape, like they went with maximum interior storage space, unlike the much more shapely Range Rover and X5 even! I guess now the look is at Audi, since both Mercedes and BMW will have full size SUV’s. While the Q7 does have three row seating, it’s foot print is much closer in size to the X5 and GLE. Does VW Group have a platform/architecture that will fit or stretch to that size? Or maybe they call take the Phaeton’s old bones and build a full size CUV from them? That equipment package is already paid for and they could squeeze a VR6, V/W8, W10 and a W12 under its hood!? I’m just say’n,…it could be done! But I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
