Movies That Predicted What the Future of Cars Would Look Like

By: Ashley Huffman

From flying cars to self-driving vehicles, the future of automotive technology has long been a source of inspiration for the silver screen.

Since the dawn of Hollywood, movies have given us a glimpse into the future. Movies have also been a source of inspiration for the automotive industry, offering a peek into the future of transportation by depicting advanced technologies such as driverless and flying cars.

From Minority Report to Blade Runner, these films have predicted the future of cars, showcasing how vehicles could enhance drivers' lives. In this article, we will explore some of the most popular movies that have predicted the future of cars, examining the technology and vehicles depicted in these films. So sit back and buckle up as we drive through some of the most exciting cinematic imaginings of the future of cars.

Navigation Systems

How comfortable do you feel driving to a new location without a navigation system? Unsurprisingly, futuristic movie cars often feature advanced mapping and navigation systems.

GPS (Global Positioning System) devices, which provide turn-by-turn directions and determine a car's location using satellite signals, were introduced in cars in the late 1990s. However, the technology behind GPS has been in development since the 1970s.

In films, this technology is far more glamorous. Famous for its long-running TV series, the movie version of Knight Rider from 1982 featured a car with an advanced navigation system. The fictional car named KITT had a highly advanced GPS that could help the driver navigate, provide real-time traffic updates, and display detailed maps of the surrounding area. We consider all of this tech normal today, but in the '80s, it was seen as futuristic. Additionally, the system is integrated with KITT's artificial intelligence, allowing the car to anticipate and respond to the driver's needs.

The movie Back to the Future Part II features a car with a holographic mapping system. In the movie, Doc Brown uses a holographic map to show Marty where he will find his future son to prevent him from committing a crime. The map is a 3D projection allowing the characters to navigate different time periods and locations. Can you imagine an advanced navigation system that helps you traverse space and time?
