Self-driving cars are not the future — or at least that is the case for one high-end automaker. 

Porsche’s CEO Oliver Blume said that his company has no plans to develop driverless cars, according to a report from the German newspaper Westfalen-Blatt.

Blume said that people “wanted to drive a Porsche by oneself” and that the company was not teaming up with any tech company to develop the technology.

“An iPhone belongs in your pocket, not on the road.” Blume told Westfalen-Blatt.

Meanwhile, other luxury automakers including Mercedes and BMW are already rolling out advanced semi-autonomous systems in their cars. And most major automakers plan to have advanced autonomous systems in their cars by 2020.

The move for Porsche not to create an autonomous vehicle may seem strange considering how other car makers are acting. However, for sports car companies, the move to hold off on driverless cars makes some sense because they are cars that are meant to driven manually.

As cars become more autonomous, some predict that driving will become more of an activity for enthusiasts, sort of like riding a horse. If this is the case, then Porsches will be the horse.

However, it’s worth noting that the car company is not ignoring all tech trends in the auto industry. Porsche is investing heavily in making electric cars.

The luxury company car maker is aiming to eventually make all of its vehicles hybrid and is planning to roll out its all electric Mission E by 2020.

In fact, in December, Porsche said that it would invest some $1 billion on production factories for the Mission E, which the company says will have a range of more than 300 miles per charge.
