    >He doesn’t understand planned obsolescence

    Making a car that lasts virtually forever with basic maintenance wouldn’t be that challenging with the technology we have. (Japanese cars in the early 90s came close to this) but the corporate entities have no incentive to make a car that lasts a lifetime. Just the opposite They would rather create a car full of flashy bullshit to entice morons into horrible loans that then mechanically fall apart right outside the warranty. It’s the same story across all industries. We could make nice shit but the system wants you to consvme and own nothing

    Urr, anon those material already exist. Gold doesn't rust but it's expensive for car manufacturing which is why they use aluminium, also stainless steel and brass due to their low rusting property but ofc weight and malleability prevent it to be used for everything that's why aluminium is goat

    The rusting comes from the steel of the chassis which can be prevented by using stuff like Line X over them as a protective layer but the main reason is they won't sell shit if everyone already owns a car that's good as it was 50 years ago

      Even if gold were cheap, they still wouldn't use it because it's soft as frick.

    Mass production is only relevant to how much money populations have. We could mass produce a carbon fibre chassis but it would take longer and profit margins would be slow, and it wouldn't make sense for most vehicles. Either way anything can degrade, corrode, rust, etc. No matter what it is. Aluminum corrodes and degrades, and its easier to crack. Titanium is strong but it can still fatigue and degrade overtime, albeit slower. Also modern steel and alloys are pretty resistant to corrosion as they are now, its just nobody does even the bare minimum for preventative maintenance to make sure a little crack or pit or scratch doesn't eat away over time.

    On the contrary, we did such a material.

    did you know that if factory coats rusting sheet metal with porous substance, panels actually rust faster as materials never dry

    I still want to know how they built late 80s-mid 90s Audis and Porsches. Those cars seem to have lasted forever. They're junked over mechanical issues and mileage, not body rot.

      Early Audis got a lot of shit for being massively rusty so in a fit of vengeful German autism they went all in on the galvanizing process, completely overdoing it to the point of the bodyshells being almost eternal, and later they'd also throw their weight around with the all-aluminum A8 and A2. They'd later scale back in the name of cost savings and late 2000's Audis rust just as well as anything else.

      I don't know about the Audis, but the Porsches had galvanized bodies.

      Umm excuse me b***h, here in the land of the free it's spelled "Aluminum". If you're going to post on an American website through your American-made internet then you need to follow the program.

    You are wrong. the reason why car manufacturers are using metals that rust out is because they dont want cars to last long. Stainless steel, anonized aluminum with a proper paintjob are easy ways to make cars frames, bodies to last above 30 years. Even regular steel lasts fairly with zinc coat+ paint.

      it can last if done well, some cars just rust. see lots of holes on relatively recent VAGs in my area, those are all galvanized.

      >import dealers needing to store the fricking panels in a deep freezer to destroy the seeds
      >because quality control of the fiber was so long it could contain seeds that could spring
      Also remember when talking about it: Its basically commie carbon fiber, but without adding even more plastics to the mix. Same problems too, such as only viable way to destroy it is to try to clean burn it.

      plastic can deteriorate in many different ways, it's not perfect either.

    It's mostly 2000s and older cars that I see rusting out these days. Something changed in 2010s-up that made cars much more impervious to corrosion, and it's not due to age. They started using better coatings or something. What is it?
