Tesla Model 3 and the Bolt in its Plans

The day the automotive world has been waiting for came and went, Tesla Motors revealed their highly anticipated Model 3. There were two mentalities of anticipation, either you are on team Tesla is going to save the world, or ruin my business. Obviously the oil industry, has vested interest in the Model 3’s flopping. They wanted the range to be under 200 miles so the anxiety would hinder sales. Un

Tesla Terrifies Petrol Powered Automakers

Tesla Motors was not really challenged the way other innovative ideas have been in the past, however it was repeatedly dismissed. Before the Roadster came out people put the idea of a practical electric auto into the boondoggle category. After it came out detractors denounced it as a niche market car. Belittled Tesla Motors by implying they had only succeeded in editing a Lotus Elise into an elect

How History Will Remember Tesla

Tesla lives in the headlines, because it has a compelling story behind it. The man that established the company does not just have a vision for the future of his many companies, his vision blankets over humanity. Tesla is not even the most impressive company under his many hats, SpaceX is already the first private company to have stolen governmental contracts away from NASA. Elon Musk wants to us

Tesla Takes Their Time

After Tesla Motors broke the scale (and the compression machine) with their Model S, and then achieved expectations with the Model X, the Model 3 has some large shoes to fill. As important as the other two were, the Tesla Model 3 is far more to the company’s future success or failure. Relatively speaking, it is rather simple to make one car in low volume, that shames the more established competit

Tesla and the Industry

Tesla Motors must be one of the most explosive companies to ever grace the automotive market. Despite the fact that there are established players in the market that have been selling cars for decades now, their offerings cannot compete with the second car Tesla Motors ever designed, the Model S. In all fairness to the other automakers, they had a pretty good thing going for quite a while. After d

Toyota Prius Prime Efficiency

Toyota used the 2016 New York International Auto Show as a venue to debut their impressive new Prius Prime. The New Plug-in Hybrid is a replacement for the Prius plug-in, which was always going to be a low volume and small demographic car. As of right now, only those people in: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon,

Volkswagen's Electric Distraction

After being burned via (the lungs in particulate) diesel emissions, Volkswagen Auto Group (VW AG) has started to electrify everything (primarily Porsche). Many might believe it is a marketing ploy; that it is all in response to the scandal, but that is not true. Even before the diesel disaster; the auto group was using the excesses generated by Audi and Porsche to develop interchangeable modal e

Aston Martin and Faraday Future

If I am a lucky man, the greatest thing in Automotive History may have just happened. Spoiler Alert, that statement was hyperbole, but you should be excited anyway, because the company behind Faraday Future LeEco has entered into a joint venture with Aston Martin. I suppose this makes the Veteran coachbuilding Automaker and the promising young whippersnapper cousins. Those (very very few people)

BMW: i Might Be the New M

As a relative lone wolf, BMW is going to have to be flexible enough to fulfill the upcoming expectations of CAFE (Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency) Standards. By 2021, companies will need to average 40-41 miles per gallon lest they face fierce fines. This should be easier for diverse companies like GM, Volkswagen, and Toyota who have a large spectrum of vehicles to balance out (i.e. the Bolt comp

Electric Appologies: Volkswagen Passenger Cars

Volkswagen Passenger Cars has a long road of recovery ahead. It went from the largest automaker in the world, and likely the most trusted and highly regarded, to the absolute scourge of the highway system. Before the reign of Winterkorn all of the cars were top notch quality for bottom rung pricing. My Jetta, the last generation before Winterkorn’s beautiful abomination was released, being both of
