Today's classic car shows see collector cars judged on their authenticity, history, and style. Meanwhile, today's automakers and new tech entrants are racing to develop the car of the future, which will look and drive nothing like those classic cars or even much like those of today. This highlights that while the automotive landscape has evolved over the past 100+ years, in just the next 10 years there will be a sea change that significantly alters its course. Electrification, autonomy, and shared mobility are at the core of this change, and how we interact with cars will also change significantly. Fully connected smart cars will seamlessly integrate into our lives and be a natural extension of our habits. Just like our phones today, we won’t be able to imagine our lives without them.
