Just an idea that I thought of. Each decade that passes, a handful of new innovations shape the industry, and there are many vehicles which could be described as "ahead of their time" or "advanced" for the decade. Is there a definite answer to this question? Definitely not, but I am interested in seeing what cars the GTP community think are the most advanced for their decade. It can be anywhere from an economy car for the masses all the way to an exotic supercar. A few examples of innovations for each decade: 1950s: monocoque construction rather than body-on-frame, more streamlined designs, OHV V8 engine, microcars, automatic transmissions, independent suspension, power-steering, and radial tires. 1960s: Introduction of many new classes of cars like the supercar, lightweight sports car, pony car, and muscle car. Normalization of disc brakes, front-wheel drive, seat belts, and active aerodynamics. 1970s: Introduction of the wedge-shaped car, hatchback, cars/parts specifically designed for maximum fuel efficiency, diesel engines, catalytic converter, and digital dashboard displays. 1980s: Normalization of 4WD in non-off road oriented vehicles, traction control, ABS, airbags, introduction of the minivan, cars breaking the 200mph barrier, refined turbocharged engines, fuel injection, and four-wheel steering. 1990s: Normalization of curvy, aerodynamic car designs, introduction of the hybrid car and family SUV, electronic stability control, active yaw control, and onboard diagnostics. 2000s: Normalization of touch screen displays and navigation systems, popularization of the CUV, dual-clutch and CVT transmissions, radar cruise control, and rear backup cameras. 2010s: Normalization of electric cars, semi-autonomous technology, driver assist features, WiFi connectivity, windscreen displays, 360-degree cameras. Guidelines: Only production cars can be posted. Race cars, tuning cars, or concepts are not allowed. This is not a "my favorite car" or "the coolest car" thread. Thoughtfully explain your choice(s). I'll start off with the 1950s for example. IMO, the most technologically advanced/futuristic/innovative car of the '50s was the Citroen DS. It was mid-engined, front-wheel drive, had a hydraulic clutch, suspension, and transmission, and independent suspension in the front and rear (hydropneumatic suspension), "magic carpet" ride quality, four disc brakes, fiberglass roof, automatic transmission, adjustable ride height, and directional headlights. These technologies were either unheard of or not at all popular in the 1950s. Furthermore, it was exceptionally curvy and had the styling/road presence of no other car during the time period. Let's get the ball rolling!
