look, ma, no handles
When Hewitt National Design Museum visited the auto show earlier this week, a woman stopped before the Lincoln MKR design study and suddenly asked, \"Why didn\'t a concept car have a door handle?
We never thought about it, but, to be sure, there are very few such things --
At the show, there are handles at gullwing or butterfly wing doors.
Some concepts, to be sure, have tiny chrome buttons or almost invisible gapsout handles.

They show the car.
Sometimes they are obviously producing.
Ready, sometimes they are as obvious as the designer\'s imagination and will never be produced.
But, I agree with the door handle-soon, we really don\'t need the door handle on the production car.
There will be-
If there is a power outage, you can get on the bus and start the manual system, that\'s it.
