Have you heard about the suicide wave among Renault and Peugeot designers in France ? Some said that the six young people that decided to end their life in their working environnement made so because they couldn’t handle the management pressure. Looking at the projects presented for the fourth Los Angeles Auto Show Design Challenge by eight major car companies could sustain a new theory of mine : those who have decided to make a living in car design are now in fact either looking at their CAD software doing all the funny parts while they deal with crash test issues or dreaming of egg-shaped farts with stupid names while they travel using solely public transportation. Are those the cars we want for 2057 ? Can you dream of a nanoparticle armor on skate wheels that morphs into the car you need ? Looking back on 50 years of car design, I can’t figure how someone could come up with such idiotic visions of what a personal vehicle should look like. There is a Jeep Wrangler and a New Beetle parked in front of our house right now and those are two 50 years old designs that still do the job.
