BMW has produced a series of four documentary films, broken into chapters, focusing on the future of mobility, cities and technology. This second film takes a critical look at some of the industry's earliest predictions for the evolution of planes and automobiles to understand why aviation has progressed much further than automobiles, even though both are roughly the same age.

The short documentary evaluates which predictions we got right, which ones can be improved, which should be changed and why we are unlikely to ever travel in a flying car despite our many attempts to build one.

"The Future Just Isn't What it Used To Be" features many of the same leaders found in chapter one, "The New City", including Astronaut Buzz Aldrin; Futurist and conceptual designer for Blade Runner, Aliens and Tron, Syd Mead; Google VP Marissa Mayer; ZipCar founder Robin Chase; Treehugger.com founder Graham Hill; Ridelust.com editor-in-chief Mike Musto; and Reinventing the Automobile co-author Lawrence Burns. They are joined in chapter two by BMW DesignWorks USA President Laurenz Shaffer; Virgin Galactic President & CEO George Whitesides; MIT Sloan Director of Automotive Professor Wai Chang; and Human Business Works President & CEO Chris Brogan. Chapter two in the the BMW Documentaries Film series "Wherever You Want To Go", premieres online at bmwactivatethefuture.com
