    Talking Re: 'Cars' Theme for Autopia?

    Once in a blue moon do I see electric/gas hybrid cars on the road - absolutely zero that are 100% electric. How long it will take for any form of electric car to become commonplace for the average driver remains yet to be determined, The Tokyo Autopia cars are a far cry from Buck Rogers. They do, however, represent the future - a pragmatic tomorrow that we may experience in our lifetimes.

    In terms of setting, one only has to take a look around both urban and rural areas of their own town or area. In doing so, it is quite obvious that the infrastructural buildings, streets, and transportation are not of the same era. Some were created during the current decade, and others span back in time to many different eras. Why would the future be any different? Sameness would be so generic.

    That being said, the cleanliness of the roads and manicured scenery of Autopia represent an awesome future that I would like to see. I have never seen any litter, even on the off-road areas. Consider all of this along with Monorails traveling overhead, along with the rumored PeopleMover replacement. Talk about a great big beautiful tomorrow.

    An electric "Cars" theme would add character to the world that lies ahead - hopefully just up the road.

    Also..after further questioning some very reliable resources @ DL (well..Tomorrowland managers, leads, and those working on the monorail) ...the rocketrods/peoplemover track is not going to be for the incredibles...From what I heard that was going to be in Toontown...From what I was told there are plans already set and ready go to do something with the tracks but their still unknown to us...

    sorry but incredibles in toontown. Not considered.

    Incredibles is considered for DCA.

    Incredibles Robocoaster/dark ride is being considered for either where the Timon parking lot is located, or else DCA's Wharf area.

    Incredibles is considered to be built as an additon to the Warf (if the balooning cost is controlled and some issues fixed) replacing a good chunk of the eastern area of farm area. Basically removing the farmers market buildings and eating area.

    Cars was the one considered to be built behind TOT basically designed to use some of the corner area next to the electrical equipment. It would have included a whole new land with it expanding all the way to the Warf gate. This new land would have included new shops, eating facility, restroom facilities and several pads for future attractions. The land would have acces from HPB and Warf area and would also have access to further expansion into remaining land in Timon. the outside portions of the track would be elevated to allow walkways and buildings to be built under it to maximize space.

    In other words, they are going to get rid of DCA's wasteland. aka food that goes to your waist "land".

    yes, a good chunk of unused land. The farm was orignally a placeholder land that was suppose tobe developed as the park grew. Bugsland would be condensed so that the farm area could be engulfed by the Warf. Lets see what happens with Ed Grier and the notorious JAy Rasulo. They might just scrap the idea if WDI doesn't come up with answers soon and control the costs

    While it is true that the Incredibles e-ticket is being considered for the wharf area, both Incredibles and the Cars "Test Trackish" ride have been tossed about for the Timon parking lot area. I think that it is more likely that we we see the Robocoaster/dark ride located in the wharf area, and a Test Track type of attraction (likely themed to Cars) where the Timon lot is.

    I'm aware last we heard thje Cars e-ticket had been scrapped. But, that was before Lasseter became creative head of attractions, and Iger became CEO. It's a whole different ball game...or car show.
