Need to vent…about the auto industry
These days, I’m really pissed at the way the auto industry is headed and one thing that pisses me off the most is hearing about another sports/supercar company bringing a useless SUV to the market.
I say useless because I don’t mind SUVs, as long as they are truly built for sport UTILITY. I’ve always liked the Rambo Lambo, the Merc G-Wagon, and the Hummer H1 because they’re ridiculously cool and can be used OFF ROAD.
I lost a lot of respect for Porsche when they came out with the Cayenne and Panamera (a new crossover is in the works based on the Audi Q5 too..blah!) and now Lamborghini and Maserati will be joining the "Lost My Respect" club. Since VW/Audi has ownership of Lambo, the new SUV/crossover will basically be a VW with Lambo badges.
Audi with Lambo engine - cool, Lambo SUV with Audi engine - uncool!
A Maserati SUV based on a Chrysler platform?!? Pleeease!!! I don’t care who thinks it “looks great”, it will be made for those with too much money and too little taste.
You want a nice-looking SUV with loads of extras? Buy the friggin’ VW Toureg…you want a Maserati, buy a GranTurismo.
Fiat has been screwing up a lot lately, I’m just glad they haven’t found a way to screw up Ferrari yet…Fingers crossed they never will.
So here’s a Fuck You! to VW and Fiat who have been slowly exploiting great car companies for profit and ruining them in the process.
Oh that’s right, Bentley SUV in the works too now. In the words of R.E.M., it’s the end of the world as we know it…
Okay, venting over…back to enthusiast heaven.
