Modernized Vehicle

Nostalgic cars are created or updated with contemporary elements

Implications - Brands are leveraging the nostalgia associated with old classic cars and are either redesigning, or updating them with modern tech elements that bring those cars out of past decades and into this one. Whether converted to electric or made to be connected, these cars aim to function as the ideal balance between nostalgic design and contemporary standards. Modernized classic vehicles function as ideal purchases for Gen X and Boomer demographics, as these generations have both the income and the desire for a more familiar past as incentives.
