They’re still selling cars

December 5, 2018 David Zatz 0

Reports that cars are dead have been grossly exaggerated. The market for sedans and coupes is falling fast, but there are still hundreds of thousands of buyers in the United States. The #1 best selling car in America, the Toyota Camry, may be down by 9% from last year (year-to-date), […]

Ford drops big hint about e-Mustang

October 19, 2018 David Zatz 1

An electric Ford Mustang is coming, if a brief commercial placement is any indication. Robert S. Miller pointed us to this freeze-frame showing a blue Mustang grille emblem in the middle of a commercial.

2019 Mitsubishi Outback PHEV

Hey, remember Mitsubishi?

October 16, 2018 David Zatz 0

Mitsubishi is coming back. Okay, to be more accurate, they never left, but they’re getting more popular. The Mitsubishi car company was only a small part of the huge Mitsubishi keiretsu which builds the container ships that transport its cars, the stereos in their (and other) cars, and some of […]

Elon Musk rose from riches to more riches by being one of the creators of an online payment system. It was not a “save-the-world” project, but an opportunistic one. Since then, his main legacy has been the Tesla electric car company, which has made a profit in just two quarters […]

Genesis falls, while 300C stays strong

August 6, 2018 David Zatz 0

Remember Genesis, Hyundai’s luxury-challenger brand that was going to wipe the floor with all the other large cars, especially that old Chrysler 300C? Without a crossover in the lineup, Genesis has been plummeting in US sales. This July, for example, they sold just 615 Genesis car, down 63% from last […]
