Porsche Not Interested In Building A Fully Autonomous Car
Porsche slammed the brakes on any talk of it developing a fully autonomous car. Latest interview with the company’s Marketing Director, Carl Isenbeck said that the company’s cars will “always” have the option for a driver to take over the controls.
“Will Porsche be building autonomous car? Maybe, but they won’t be fully autonomous,” Isenbeck told The Drum. “They can be autonomous for the part where you are stuck in traffic, on the way to the race track. But once you are on the race track, you will still drive the car yourself. Maybe the car can then tell you what an ideal racing line is, versus an instructor.”
