I hope it ends when the babies are complete, with more complete activities. When we finally have farms, more supernatural creatures, like fairies, werewolves or zombies!

I want to remind you that GTAV is older than TS4 and we are still waiting for any confirmation of GTA VI. Whats more GTA needs continuation more than TS because this game can not be expanded or updated as TS4 can be. A lot of things makes me think that TS4 will be much longer with as than previous generations.

They've never made the iterations compatible with each other. However, CC makers have often converted objects from one iteration to another for free.
They've always left previous iterations "as is," but modders have always stepped in where the devs left off, so even though devs will move on to TS5, there will be modders and CC makers still working on TS4, just like with TS3 and TS2.
A good consolation to ending TS4's run is that the mods for it no longer need to keep updating and in a sense, the game becomes "stable" as time goes on and people find ways to fix its bugs or find work-arounds for them.
In other words, it's not the end of the world when an iteration ends. The modders and CC makers, and even its players with the stories and challenges they make up for it will keep it fresh.

I have a feeling that its going to be 10 years old when Sims 4 finishes its production cycle. We have a long way to go, and I remember that another guru said again that they have 2/3 years of content planned again. No, I'm not talking about Grant. He said that about 2/3 years ago, and someone else said it again.@jcp011c2 makes no sense for them not to end the game with a EP released as the last content.

I personally don't see cars ever coming, how would that work with neighborhoods surrounded by water? Be stuck in just that neighborhood? Build bridges? What if the neighborhoods with no roads?
I don't see babies ever being freed either (although I hope I'm wrong). People have been asking for that since the beginning and 6 years later they have yet to do it.
They have stated before spiral staircases are "too hard". One Guru in an interview just recently stated something to the effect of "Look around at the modding community, if they haven't done it yet that means it's hard to do"
The NPCs I could see them adding, now whether those would be base game free updates or come in some pack that's the question.
I could see them doing a Winter Vacation world, or a Casino lot with one functional game play item, I don't see them ever making a casino with 3-4 "casino games" with animations tho.
And, I for sure don't see them ever adding any type of color wheel (unless it was forjust the skin tones) and not for other CAS/B&B items, they would have to redo every texture for that, there has to be channels for that in the texture. TS3 textures had sections of it separated and put on a channel that could be recolored/retextured. TS4 textures are one single texture. I just don't see that happening, not this late in the game.
But, hopefully we'll get some of that stuff when TS5 releases.
