22: Four-Wheel Steering
Of all the novelties that have been bestowed to the automotive industry, four-wheel steering is probably the most unique. On a sports car, it makes sense that you’d want to have a steering setup like this, but at the time the technology was new. It just wasn’t catching on with consumers as the automakers had hoped for, most likely because the U.S market is predominantly taken up by commuters.
The interesting thing about four-wheel steering is that it is starting to make a comeback in the automotive market. The technology also made an appearance in the 2000s on the Silverado HD under the “Quadrasteer” banner.
