Marchionne changes tune on electric vehicles, says first electric Maserati model would debut in 2019
It is no secret that when it comes to EV vehicles and their profitability, Sergio Marchionne has a well-defined stance against them. He says that their profitability is non-existent, that that the Fiat 500e EV costs $10,000 for every one that is sold. However, when it comes to whether he is open to adding one in a higher price bracket, Marchionne has swerved from that position.

Looking for all the minimalist excitement of an Ariel Atom at a discount AND don't fear death? Then have I got the vehicle for you!
People in my profession—and outside it, too, I suppose—have always railed against government “interference” in the production of vehicles. Sure, the seat belt was a good idea, but airbags, “safety” bumpers, and—more recently—the laundry list of electronic nannies like automatic braking and stability control?

So that’s it. You created the biggest, baddest, meanest, most brutalizing road-going supercar of all time. It costs over a million dollars, can run 0–60 quicker than most family sedans can go 0–30, and has exactly one pony over 1,000 horsepower being produced from its behemoth 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine. Oh, and the car can hit 253 mph before it runs out of steam. That should be enough. Honestly, that should be enough. Yet, it’s not.
Bentley currently has one convertible in its lineup, the Bentley Continental GTC; but not too long ago it had a second convertible. Dubbed the Azure, the bigger droptop was based on the Brooklands sedan and brought top-tier luxury to buyers who wanted to feel the wind in their hair. The Azure went out of production several years back, but, if executives at Bentley have their way, the Azure could very well be resurrected for a new generation of well-heeled buyers.

When it comes to exciting cars of yesteryear few cars are as under-appreciated as the legendary Acura NSX. Whether it was being mistaken for a Ferrari or taking knocks for not having enough power as other cars in its price class, the NSX did not get nearly the credit it deserved. But, with a little more insight, we might just be able to get the NSX the credit it absolutely deserves.
B-J's and AA's auctions prove that if you dishonor your Heritage you will pay the price. [Buyers, however, won't even offer half of it.]
While the car you see above looks like every other “Heritage Edition” Ford GT, this one hides a terrible secret: Somebody invested a fortune into cutting its value in half. Yes, you read that right. Someone bought one of the ultra-rare and ultra-desirable Gulf-liveried 2006 Ford GTs and basically destroyed it in the most pathetically-ironic way: They turned it into a “racecar.”
