Yes, the sprawling drive-in theater is becoming a thing of the past, but German automaker Smart's latest creation takes the retro concept and gives it futuristic, ultra-convenient micro appeal. The Smart ForStars sport utility coupe, unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, has a movie projector embedded in its hood, making it easy to transform any blank wall into an "instant cinematic tailgate party." The projector features a high-quality sound system, and can even stream video from an iPhone via Bluetooth.
