Porsche, NAIAS, EVs, Ford GT Fiasco, NACTOY, Cadillac, and Tesla | #360
As January turns to February, the industry is awash with news, scandals, and car companies struggling to stake out their place. Starting off the show, Kelley Blue Book Executive Editor, Michael Harley, fills us in on his recent test drives of the new Porsche 911 and Panamera. We also tackle Porsche's foray into the electric vehicle (EV) with their Taycan, and Michael shares a couple of wacky experiences he had riding in autonomous cars. Next, while we may have missed the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, MI, Autotrader Executive Editor, Brian Moody, remained faithful and is here to give us some highlights from the show. Also, Brian questions whether all of these automakers that are pumping out three-row SUVs will be faced with a rude awakening when consumer price fatigue sets in. Changing gears, Executive Publisher for KBB, Autotrader, and Dealer.com, Karl Brauer, discusses the Ford GT resale scandal and his new Ford GT (which went straight from the delivery truck to the detail shop). Then, Automotive Expert, "The Car Coach", and President of NACTOY Awards, Lauren Fix, shares the winners of the Car, Truck, and Utility vehicle categories, which were revealed at NAIAS recently. Lauren also gives a preview of what's in store at the Chicago Auto Show as Alan blows her mind with statistics from Barrett-Jackson's most recent Scottsdale auction. Closing the show, automotive journalist, BJ Killeen, discusses Cadillac's decision to become an EV company, Elon Musk and Tesla's shaky public perception, Lincoln's amazing concierge services, and Carlos Ghosn's situation in Japan. Tune in for the latest automotive insights.
