There have been various predictions made concerning the future profile for automobiles but such predictions have in many cases been based solely on anticipated advances in technology. In presenting a profile for automobiles in the year 2000, the writers predict the evolution and transfiguration of automobiles, taking both phases in the changing social environment and technical trends into account. Interest in automobiles is expected to shift from hardware to software and then to humanware (i.e. more emphasis is placed on the relationship with human beings), and automobiles will evolve and transfigure reflecting these changes.
