Default A tribute to the evolution of the Fisker interior...

First, we had the concept interior...







then we had the "pre-production" interior...




which then got massaged and massaged into this....



until finally we were surprised with this:

I'm kinda diggin the concept look. Can we go back to it? The Tron interior look would match the Tron exterior sound.

The first concept looks too seventies to me (C3PO and R2D2 come to mind). But it's sad the big gear stick from the last concept is gone.

All in all the final interior is the most beautiful (imho)

+1. Huge fan of the final version. Much better than its progenitors.

I did wish it had a proper gear shift rather than the PRNDL pyramid! Also, I think steering wheel is too stylized.

LCD monitors in the headrests would have rocked. I was hoping that something other than an engraving and paint scheme would be standard on the SEs, but seeing as, pricewise the SE is now a steal, I am not complaining about the lack of differences.

Or how about the rear AC units? Those would have been pluses too!

Yes, those would have been nice too.

I agree. The new gear selector systems on cars (buttons, dials, etc.) just don't feel right. The Fisker's original lever was actually fixed in place and only extreme right portion would rotate to select the gear, so it was not a true gear selection lever, but it certainly looked the part.

I'm on a completely different wavelength here. I'm really glad they got rid of the fake shift lever in favor of the PRND pyramid. For one thing, it makes the console less cluttered. It also keeps it out of the way of seeing or accessing the Command Center.

My bigger issue with keeping it though is that it's non-functional. Having a gearshift lever that doesn't actually shift gears just because we're used to them is just clinging to old technology for nostalgia's sake. It's like the original automobiles (quaintly even called Horseless Carriages) that had all sorts of equine-related vestigal features. They were no longer needed or relevant but people were just "used to them". I think if you're going to really move the needle and redefine what a car could be you need to be willing to let go of old conventions.
