It's funny how people are going apeshit over the end of production of the internal combustion engine. Even if it comes in the next 40 years, we'll all be retired. The gasoline powered automobile has to be superseded eventually, that's how technology works.
That said, if we can wrangle a system where normies sit in their autonomous electric bubble taxis and reduce the burden of emissions, fuel consumption, and safety regulations on the rest of us, I would be thrilled.
We just need more enthusiast-driven companies to thrive, like Mazda and Porsche. It would only take them one Honda Civic-tier everyman's autonomous EV to gain total freedom in sports car development.
