Appareantly the first cars were invented by benjamin Franklin in 1786 but no one bought them because they could ride on horses for a Lower cost do you think we will see this event I'n AC3

No. I hope not anyway. Who would want to use a car?

I don't think that's true. None of his other inventions are anywhere close in complexity and sophistication to the car. The first bicycles weren't manufactured until the 1800s.

I can't find anything about him regarding the invention of automobiles either. His name isn't even mentioned on the wikipedia page.

I looked up "were cars invented in the 1700,s "and it was someone's opinion answer, must have been false
I don't want cars anyway I just thought you might see him trying to invent a car when you meet him in the game

Unlikely. The first wheeled vehicle to move under steam pressure (not a motorcar, since it had no motor) was invented before Franklin's birth, and the invention of the combustion engine came after his death.

In reality, not even the inventors of the combustion engine managed to marry it with a carriage design as a land vehicle, and made a boat instead. It took other people to conquer the difficulties of getting the engine on the roads. If he was shown even attempting the build a car, he'd be having to invent both the combustion engine and the car at the same time, which would be too much of a leap.

Looks like it. Well it would've been a cool idea if it were true (not that I'd want cars in the game).

One would be the problem of seeing him trying to invent a car? Didn't leonardo try to invent an "air-plane"?

I doubt that leonardo's plane worked for real but in the game we use it without problems, we even have a mortar in it LOL

Yes, but Leonardo did actually make pretty detailed sketches of his glider and there is evidence suggesting that he discovered the basics of aerodynamics 300 years before the Wright brothers did. If his glider worked even a little like modern gliders then is should have worked at the very least similarly to those in the games.

Leonardo actually designed one of those, though. In fact, some sources claim he actually built one, only to have it smashed by one of his assistants, who broke his leg in a crash-landing after a brief flight.

Oh God no. The automobile was one of the very few things that I didn't like about Red Dead Redemption. I know you couldn't drive it yourself but it didn't feel very western.

That was the point. Blackwater was meant to represent the end of the Wild West.

Anyway, with Connor's parkour/freerunning gifts he wouldn't need a car.

Here's a documentary about the history of the electric car.
A little bit off-topic but really interesting nonetheless :).

The game takes place in 1914. like someone else pointed out, that was the point. They wanted to portray the end of an era and the beginning of our world today. Such a fantastic game.
