Many consider today the golden age of design when it comes to cars. From the fantastic look of the Tesla Model S to Ford’s powerhouse the GT and so much more, today’s car designers have almost a rock star quality about them. Perhaps that’s why the design schools are overflowing with applicants. On this edition of Autoline THIS WEEK John McElroy explores the future of automotive design with Joe Dehner, the head of Dodge/Ram Exterior Design and FCA’s intermediary with education; Paul Snyder, the Transportation Design Chair at Detroit’s College for Creative Studies as well as Darby Barber a student at the same school and former contestant on Tru TV’s reality show “Motor City Masters.”
