Cars Don’t Come With Cassette Decks Anymore

Cassette Tapes

I think it’s finally time to get rid of your BELL BIV DEVOE and DEF LEPPARD cassettes.  Tapes aren’t making a comeback.  The dream is over.

According to “The New York Times”, we’ve FINALLY reached the point where not a SINGLE car model comes with the option for a factory-equipped cassette deck anymore.

You could still probably get one installed aftermarket if you wanted . . . but they’d definitely have to special order it for you.  They don’t have them around the shop.

The final holdout was the 2010 Lexus SC 430 sport coupe.  They offered a factory cassette deck.  The 2011s don’t have one, though . . . so that’s the end of the era.

Now that cassettes are gone, the big question is . . . how much longer do CD players have?

Digital storage and iPod hookups are clearly where music is going . . . you know, music that’s not provided free and clear, as always, by the everlasting and ever popular technology that is terrestrial radio.
