The cars of the future are at SXSW

Austin (KXAN)- One of the great things about interactive South-By-Southwest is the glimpse it gives us into the future. For car junkies, what a future it is.

At the Connected Car Pavillion Saturday SXSW attendees got to see sports cars, sedans and trucks loaded with the latest and that could interface with any technology you can imagine.

An of course, self-driving cars were on prominent display.

“I think in ten years if not five years we are definitely going to have cars that are fully autonomous,” said C-3 Group President Doug Newcomb. “They drive themselves. I’ve tested them, ridden in them. The technology is going to be here before we know it.”

The new models also include data analytics and traffic flow management. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
