    I wanna know what the hell happened to Shane's supposed Transformer Rally car!

    We never even saw the damn thing Transform. Instead it just sat there when Lockdown's grenade went off.

    We were never given any solid indication it actually was Transformer. It showed up looking driverless, but Shane was in there the whole time; maybe he was leaning far back out of view after making the sharp entrance.

    If the original plan had been for it to transform, then apparently it was dropped. They could always pick it up next movie, but just as easily not.

    When the rally car showed up at the farm, it didn't have a driver. I've seen AOE twice, no driver. It was blown up by Lockdown's grenade. Not a TF.

    But you can't argue that Shane was in there a couple scenes later. So he was driving the car and somehow remained concealed from the viewer's vantage point.

    If being driverless means it was a Transformer, then he would have had to be sitting in the backseat or something, or hiding in the cornfield when it showed up. In both instances he would know what was up, which definitely wasn't the case in the film (unless he's keeping a huge secret).

    I'm sorry but it was clear as day that nobody was driving Shane's car when it pulled up to the farm.

    To suggest that he was sitting in the backseat or out of view from the viewer's vantage point is absurd. Watch it again.

    It was clearly introduced as a transformer.

    Shane even says while driving "I don't know how I'm driving this good it's like today I've gone to a whole different level!"

    It was a MAJOR incontinuity.

    I don't think it was a 'major' mistake.

    More of a bump on the road than anything else.

    What?! A troll thread?!

    It's a completely valid question.
    Shane's car was a major incontinuity.

    Major is a strong word. I'm fairly sure disappearing drivers have happened in the last three movies.

    Its just not that big of an issue. Its either A: They wanted to make his rescue more of a surprise. Or B: They goofed up.

    Of course, if Shane is just the Holomatter avatar of the car, who actually DOES love Tessa, I'm all for it. Interspecies sex/romance is the best.

    Nope. Honestly, I really do like it in fiction when the character date someone not of their race. Werewolf and Vampire in love? Awesome. Robot and human? Beautiful. Alien and human? That was my entire Mass Effect journey right there.

    It really makes no sense at all, especially because if it was indeed a dropped concept, they should've just gotten rid of that shot with the driverless car and just have Shane show up last second. I have no idea why in the world they would include that shot. I've seen the movie with 5 different people and every single one of them thought it was a Transformer. One of my friends even asked me the name of it when it first pulled up.

    The Rally Car pulling up with no driver made me mad, just like when Tessa shuts the door on the highway, but then the camera pans up and the door is open...bothers me (just like in the first one when bumblebee/sam/Megan Fox is on make-out point)
