      Iíve been in some quiet ICE cars, but nothing powered by gas could be as quiet and vibration feee as an EV.

      FD RX-7. $20k would stretch the budget for a manual turbo, but you might be able to get a RHD JDM example for that. Or, buy an auto and transmission swap. This auto went for $15k on BAT- $5k should...

      I didn't mean to imply that the software would be "free", but that given that the cost would be amortized over millions of cars, it wouldn't add that much to the price per car.

      In the case of Uber, they don't treat them as employees so don't pay benefits or any additional expenses.

      Who says the vehicle has to be "high end"? Most of the barrier to AVs is software. Once it's developed, there's little additional cost to the vehicle assuming you've developed the software yourself...
    6. I don't understand why you think that situation...

      I don't understand why you think that situation is implausible. Just because YOU don't lend your vehicles out doesn't mean others won't- especially when one can do so by clicking a button on an app. ...

      They generally are, but it wasn't uncommon at my school to have teachers married to people who make a lot more money. For example, the band director was married to a lawyer. He probably made around...

      Right, but highly autonomous vehicles do have legal structures that need to be worked on because our current auto liability laws assume a human driver who can be held responsible. Let's imagine the...

      It would make Uber's business model sustainable without massive capital infusions. You would also get out of tipping that way.

      I'm pretty sure Subarus and Wranglers use very different differentials.

      Just because something has AWD does't make it a barge. A WRX weighs all of 75lbs more than your GLI. But point on snows is absolutely right. It's far more important to snow handling than AWD.

      There's a benefit to having your own car. It's always available to you at a fixed cost, even if there's a "surge" in demand. If you have kids, car seats are already there and installed. It's a place...

      I wouldn't get studded snow tires unless you expect to be driving mostly on an actual snow surface for the entire winter. Maybe if you are moving to Fairbanks that makes sense. For a place like...

      The definitions I've read are more about what people allow them to do, not necessarily what they can do. Nowhere in the definition of autonomy levels I've seen does it specify a given safety margin.

      The Carnet Funding Bill is passed. The system goes on-line August 4th, 2020. Human decisions are removed from driving. Carnet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m....

      Yeah, F1 and maybe the very top NASCAR drivers are the only motorsport positions where drivers make any money. Even within F1, only the top drivers have really lucrative contracts. Driving one season...

      Some military surveillance drones, space craft such as the uncrewed SpaceX dragon, although I suppose most are technically level 4 because a human could take control.
