I wonder if the Volt's failure influenced GMs decision to abandon hybrids. It would be a shame, because I also really liked the Volt.

I don’t really see how the Volt is a royal screw up in terms of it’s technical execution. If you want a plug-in hatchback it’s a great execution of one.

Ford is considered a domestic brand in the UK and they consider the GT40 a primarily british effort, which is why Top Gear/Grand Tour remain obsessed with it.

More than likely the movie was originally called Le Mans ‘66, but most Americans probably think that’s some kind of champagne, so they changed the title for us.
