Car Technology of the Future – Concept Cars Documentary
A Concept vehicle, show vehicle and a prototype is a Car made to showcase new styling and/or new Technology. They are often shown at motor shows to gauge customer reaction to new and radical designs which may or may not be mass-produced. General Motors designer Harley Earl is generally credited with inventing the Concept Car, and did much to popularize it through its traveling Motorama shows of the 1950s.
Concept Cars never go into production directly. In modern times all would have to undergo many changes before the design is finalized for the sake of practicality, safety, regulatory compliance, and cost.
