Nothing earth shattering has come along in a very long time. Everything 'new and awesome' only provides incremental usefulness usually at a huge cost in cash(and in the other commodity, privacy) and often doesn't leave you more productive.
It's just a fact of industry - next years car will have all kinds of new selling points but none will get you where you want to go any differently than you go now(without the car loan).
Still, if buying slows down then Wall st complains and jobs get lost so... keep buying new junk!
