Well for them it's the present.

Very, very impressive and certainly 'the shape of things to come' - a far cry from the old VW factory in Wolfsburg which I visited in 1965.

Exactly as intended.
Back in the seventies- working as a freelance publicist used to compiling glowing publications of technological achievement - my main client said to me- 'look this new product line needs someone like you 'inside' - So I went to work for the firm on the inside.
Instead of being fed images and words of marvel I tour of the plant indeed did show an impressive assembly line- in other 'shops' how ever the dark satanic mills of the 19th c prevails men id dirty overalls with big hammers, machines spewing oil and swarf-etc.
I related this tale in some detail to an uncle of my wife.
Oh he said its exactly the same at my place- the public see only the posh bits- the rest is under wraps.
Who did he work for?
Rolls Royce Marine Propulsions systems
Remember that impressive video showed only the screwing together- what is at the other end of the tram route?
