Should have Googled. Apparently, the car of the future is the car long since dead and gone. Like the hybrid compressed air and diesel loco and the AP car that (apparently) could hit 60 or so MPH.

From this site: Air Car Factories - The History of Compressed Air Vehicles

"According to his design the hot air was pressed into a motor which contained a number of cylinders, half of which go down when the others rise up. As in an ordinary engine, the crankshaft forced a rotating movement. The major difference was that the air after having passed through the cylinders, passed again through the cylinders by means of a compressor at the side, causing a continuous circulation and enough perpetual movement to last three months."

I'll decide after the test drive.
