It is very very easy to be too rational in looking at cars. The sequence:

Spear --> Horse --> Car -- Smartphone

successively defined powerful, sexy, and urgently desired by testosterone flooded males over millennia, and always the faster/stronger the better.

Each epoch in the sequence lasted about 1/50th(?) of the time of its predecessor.

What follows smartphone? I'll bet neural/retinal/aural implants. In about 3 years. Faster, Stronger, SEXIER. (But DAD, I need it for school and for my JOB!)

Has macro implications, but the causes are to be found well below the heart, not above it.
