Well duh. That’s just good business. A different wheel for every model is the king of inefficiency that has brought many a company down.
But I suspect not everyone would, hence why there are not all leather.
The LED one is stupid. “String of pearls” headlights are from 10 years ago. Of course modern ones look better.
Sure let’s compare the very latest Mercedes and an Audi from 10 years ago which introduced the very concept of LEDs to the market, that’ll be fair.
If they got cars like the C4 Cactus that they completely idolise they’d realise that the grass is never actually greener. The Cactus may be endearing but it has many flaws and has been a failure. But now that they finally get what they had been clamouring for (Alfas), they seem so dedicated in bashing it every chance…
What’s “good” ? If reliability is the only measure the Camry is the best car ever made.
Dunno, it’s just annoying. When Jalopnik writers have an obsession it becomes ridiculous. Before that it was “Formula E is vaporware!” pretty much right up to the point season 1 was finished and every other publication had already let go of Formula E-bashing for months. Before that of course it was “the Tesla Model S…
I’ve been around here for years. Oh wow, the Alfa is not as reliable as its German rivals? Was America under the impression Jeremy Clarkson was just jocking around when he said Alfas broke down all the time? It’s always been the point of Alfa-mania that petrolheads love them despite their numerous flaws.
For a website that claims to love forbidden European fruit you seem really interested in making sure Alfa Romeo fails in America.
I’m French and I adore French cars, old or current, and I agree. No French car on the market today does something that others car available on the American market don’t.
I want those form thingies for my living room, they’re amazing!
Already out of production. It was more of a publicity stunt than a real model.
FYI, the Méhari was invented by Roland de La Poype, former flying ace of the Normandie-Niemen squadron that fought on the Eastern Front with the Russians, and Hero of the Soviet Union.
Depends what you mean by gas-powered cars. Formula E cars are a bit faster than the cars that race in the WTCC. But they’re a lot slower than F1 feeder series like GP3 and Formula 2 (formerly GP2).
The three French carmakers paint a fairly diverse picture of French society (at least for a century ago) :
Yeah they’re really just helicopter taxis, aren’t they? And those already exist, and only the über-rich can afford them, pun intended.
God yes. This fucking rules. Volvo has been doing so well under Geely, here’s hoping they can do the same for Lotus.
Making a high-end luxury car when you’re a mainstream car maker is a terrible, terrible, terrible idea. No luxury car customer wants to be seen with a mainstream badge. No mainstream car salesman knows how to take care of such customers. It makes people confused about your image and is a total waste of time and money.…
People nowadays don’t care if it’s not German...
