Porsche Envisions the Interior of a Future Self-Driving Vehicle
Porsche this week shared images of an interior envisioned by its designers showing a future self-driving vehicle. Amusingly, the vehicular shell that envelops the imagined cabin design isn't that of an identifiable Porsche car or even SUV. Rather, this living-room style environment sits inside… a van!
Called the Porsche Renndienst Study, this design is one that the automaker has kept secret until now, as we recently learned from the book “Porsche Unseen”.
With sliding doors at the front and rear, the van can accommodate up to six occupants. The last two rows have two and three seats, respectively, while the driver gets a centre seat that can rotate 180 degrees. When the vehicle is in autonomous mode, the driver can turn around to chat with the other occupants.

Instead of windows, passengers have individual display screens with haptic controls.Read more
