I read an interesting theory on why cars today have 8,000 USB ports and are offering wifi. Basically, car companies think they're the new cupholders, which were the new ashtrays. If you get in a car from the 1980s, you'll see that there were ashtrays everywhere. I think the late 80's suburbans had 7. There were ashtrays in doors, in consoles, all over. Then, move to the late 90's early 00's and it was all about cupholders. It was a big deal when Porsche added them. WHAT ARE YOU DOING DRINKING IN A PORSCHE?!?! But they had to. Everyone needed 600 cup holders. Today it's keeping people charged and plugged in with USBs.
That said, what's the best feature(s) in your car that you can't live without for your next one? Big sunroof? Did you recently get heated seats and now you can't understand how you survived winter without one? Android Auto/Apple Car play? What's your must-have in your next car?
