Mobillity Car Will we lose it?

I have just be reading about this new Benefit PIP which will replace DLA.  The way it sounds to me is that no matter how long you have been on DLA when you are younger than 65 years and you receave Motability and you can get a Motabillity car.  When you are accessed for PIP and you are over 65  years you will be to old to claim it and you will lose your Motabillity car.  Am I right?  As it would efect thounds of people who need a car to get around

According to http://www.dwp.gov.uk/policy/disability/personal-independence-payment/:

There are no current plans to replace Disability Living Allowance with Personal Independence Payment for children under 16 and people over the age of 65 who are already receiving Disability Living Allowance.

I wouldn't worry unduly, anything could happen...................
