I read once that the last TRUE inovation was the automatic transmission (almost 60 years ago!).
I remember a few years ago being at the San Francisco auto show with a bunch of people standing around a new BMW watching the boot open up and the top fold into it. I said out loud, "Cool, just like the fifties and sixties Ford Thunderbird!"
There improvements, but few inovations.
