Donald Trump met with the US car company leaders yesterday to browbeat then into building more cars in the United States, promising them massive cuts in regulations in return. Is that a good thing?
The EPA accuses Chrysler of using software to shut down pollution controls on its diesel engines, allowing them to emit higher than permitted levels of ntirous oxides. Chrysler vehemently denies the allegations.
I think it’s safe to say that the past week has been a weird one for all of us, and Ferrari CEO Sergio Marchionne is making it even weirder.

The photos here show the new Y in the flesh, and – I think […]
