April 22, 2015 on Supercompressor. The pictures help this one.
This is the Chevrolet FNR. An ultra-futuristic, self-driving, Light Cycle-esque sedan that’s part of a series of new models that GM is showing off at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show. It’s equal parts iPhone and Tron and it kicks major ass.
Keys have been replaced with iris recognition technology (good luck sneaking it out of the garage now!) as the only way to open the dual dragonfly-like doors. And that’s just the beginning. You drive the FNR with body movements straight out of PlayStation Kinect, and it can go from “self-drive” to autonomous mode with a simple swipe of your hand.
Since the FNR is intended to be a glimpse into the future, it uses a P2P network to communicate with other cars, so as to avoid getting too close—just like you and all of your high school “friends” on Facebook.
The fine folks at GM are keeping the powertrain options under wraps, so no word yet on how it will fair against a Stallone-driven Oldsmobile.
