I’m still trying to figure out if this is real or a fake but either way it’s a really cool concept.

Ladies and Gentlemen, The Disappearing Car Door:

Taken from the official Disappearing Car Door website:

The original inventors and designers of the exciting Disappearing Car Door technology are now in a position to equip your favorite automobile with our cool, sexy, safe and convenient automatic door or design an original vehicle body incorporating this unique technology.

Our vehicle architecture offers an attractive rethink for car design and adds greatly to overall vehicle safety including our structural integration of the door with the unibody and our cruciform door frame technology.

What do you think? Is this car door technology real or fake?

After looking over the video and checking out the website, I’m still on the fence. If it’s not real, someone really needs to create it as I believe it would be well received.

    I don’t know. Looks real. Either way, it’s kinda fun to think about. I wonder how _useful_ it actually is though. But maybe that’s just me stuck in my old car door opening ways.

    I think its fake cause the site has ads…

    It’s probably real. The technology exists: Lincoln had a prototype made and subsequently scrapped, I assume these guys are the engineers who worked on that project.

    Check out this link at Jalopnik which features the exact same system on a ’93 Lincoln, on a post from June this year.
