Wanna know the state of the auto industry? Resident auto-expert Peter De Lorenzo may have just what you’re looking for.
Mr. De Lorenzo is a veteran in the auto industry/press area of life. He now operates Autoextremist.com and appears on Autoline After Hours. One thing that Peter is definitely crazy about are his opinions. If you don’t like them, just stand back, because he’ll probably end up pissing you off. Oh well.
But this time he’s at it again, giving this nation of attention-span deficit civilians an understanding of what’s in store for the auto world. I don’t agree with everything he says, but I do with lots. Here are some examples I agree with:
GM Marketing: Joel Ewanick gets the band back together. Improved, intelligent – with a dollop of tenacity – but still a long, long way to go.
GM Marketing, Part II: Ad agencies Goodby (Chevy) and Fallon (Cadillac) grade “C” and “C,” respectively. Better, but not nearly good enough.
Here are a couple I disagree with:
Jaguar: Some signs of life although the new XJ looks like a parade float, btw. Let’s face it – the C-X75 is the only Jag worth talking about.
Audi: Confident, strong and sure of every move they make, these automotive Masters of the Universe show no signs of fatigue – or letting up.
So head on over to Autoextremist to see what’s going on. There are some very interesting things to read and see…
