Of course, the real car won't transform into a giant robot capable of shooting advanced weaponry at the Decepticons. Instead, GM envisions a car capable of changing its roofline and width in order to become more or less aerodynamic on demand. The specific patent application is for “Method and Systems for Reconfiguring a Vehicle Geometry,” showing a vehicle with configurable body panels. The idea is to create a car that can allow for more or fewer passengers depending on the situation. Imagine driving around a small, two-seater car that can transform into a larger, seven-seater at the press of a button.
