Check out this Lexus for the year 2054, AND a Pontiac concept,


HISTORY
In 2002, Lexus was requested by Steven Spielberg, a Lexus owner himself, to design a vehicle that would fit the requirements of year 2054 for his movie adaptation of the Philip K. Dick short story Minority Report.[2] Designer Harald Belker worked with Calty, the Toyota/Lexus design studio in California.[3] They came up with an advanced vehicle that would run on fuel cells and have many advanced safety features, including a crashproof structure and biometric security systems.[4] (Lexus' cinematic concept car also appears in The Island, though it is colored blue, not red).
A film tie-in site proposed a Lexus future vehicle that would drive itself, take dinner orders verbally, and select music to match occupant moods.[4] The Lexus 2054 later appeared at several auto shows and public events. The site won several advertising awards.[5] Lexus paid $5 million for the rights to market the vehicle and its brand in relation to the film.



1987 Pontiac Pursuit concept.
