I normally ignore the MotorExpo every Fall inside Brookfield Place. Cars bore me.
However, this year, I spotted two trends worth noting. One is disturbing. One is very encouraging.
The disturbing trend is to see that every luxury brand, ranging from Mercedes, Lexus, Porsche, to even Bentley, have all made SUV’s because that is where the consumers are going. The publicly traded companies are now putting stock price over tradition, brand, and aesthetics.
These SUV’s are so hideous that they are visual crimes to any car enthusiast. I can never look at a Porsche 911 again and not think of this bastard mutant called the Cayenne. The Bentley should cause every Arab Sheik who owns a real Bentley to sue Volkswagen, the owner of Bentley, to have their money refunded.
How bad will this trend get? Lamborghini is making an SUV!
On the positive side, I am seeing more and more electric vehicles. The combustion engine should be obsolete very soon. Tesla still rules.
