It is just a matter of math, after all.
Toyota knows how to maintain market share as the future closes in on the other car makin'Dinos.
Soon China will come on strong w/a $5000 basic buggy & all the rest will have to scramble out any wizbang gimmick to stand out & support their ridiculous prices.

There's hope yet for this Woman
Far too many people should never have been given a driver's license. This is a great technological achievement, but unfortunately it gives people an excuse to never learn how to properly drive and park a car.

In a revolutionary development for lazy and skill-deficient drivers, Toyota engineers in Japan have developed a car that can perform a perfect reverse park between two objects.
This is the big one! A self-parallel parking car! Brethren and cisterns, forget Paradise, for this is an upgrade.
After all, let's be honest. Some of us might have accidentally, just teensy-weensy jumped the curb a time or two - or worse - trying to manuever our cars. And it has nothing to do with being lazy or skill-deficient.....:)

I learned to drive at the tender age of 34, and though I did flunk my drivers test three times, parallel parking was the one skill I took to almost immediately. Go figure, huh?

The post between the garage doors at my parents house wishes many times over that my Mom could have had this for her car.
Ugh...this would take all the fun out of driving. May they never have fully automated cars!!
