And worse, it isn't even clear yet how engineers might make it exist. The Gen Y crowd wants a car that is sporty on the outside, but roomy on the inside, the team says. But more specifically, they want to be able to drive around with their friends — many friends — all together in the same car, like a big social event. A five-seater isn't good enough.
