Futuristic (sounding) cars

Responding to the Pedestrian Safety Act of 2010 Ford has provided some potential sounds they might use for their Focus Electric car because they are “too quiet”

I can appreciate the futuristic George Jetson quality these cars make but it seems absurd to artificially make cars sound like they do in Minority Report just because we’ve been trained by the movies that that is what cars will sound like someday.

Lets get creative instead. Instead of Close Encounters I want mine to sound like

  • a pouncing tiger
  • a ray gun
  • a Sherman tank
  • hell, just let me pipe my radio to the outside and they’ll hear me coming a block away.

PS – I don’t want my car to sound like it can fly. I want my car to fly.
