(Porsche)

Instead of exterior mirrors, this Porsche concept car now at the Paris auto show has two cameras mounted in side air outlets to display images in the cockpit. A central color display in front of the driver replaces classic instruments. In the electric-only mode, the hybrid can go almost 19 miles at up to 80 mph. Its fluid-cooled lithium-ion battery can be recharged in 2.5 hours.
