Jay Leno: I love to drive, but autonomous vehicles might not be so bad

July 6, 2018View for printing

When I bought my Viper in 1992, I remember the salesman saying, "You'll never see cars with 400 horsepower again." I believed him! At the time, it didn't seem like you ever would; 400 horses was so outrageous. Now you have Chevys with 750 horsepower. Not long ago I drove the 2019 ZR1 at GM's proving ground in Milford, Michigan. We went 204 mph on the track for 50 miles, and the car was rock steady. I'm talking pump gas, street tires, no tricks--just a production Vette. Slowing to 150, I felt like I could get out of the car, it seemed so slow.

The point is that the future has a way of defying prediction.
