Needs to be even smaller and lose another 400 lbs!
This is no joke. If they truly intend to compete with GM & Ford, then these cars will have to lose a minimum of 400, and more like 500, lbs. They can forget about the cosmetics until after
they've accomplished some hellishly-serious mass reduction.

I just caught a news flash about a guy in Florida who has the dubious honor of being the first person killed in a Tesla that was operating on Auto Pilot. A semi turned left in front of him and the car failed to apply its brakes. When he went under the trailer at full speed, the whole greenhouse (and, one must assume, the guy's upper half) was scraped off of the car. It was only a matter of time before this happened to a car in autonomous mode, reality being as unpredictable as it is and all. Of course, the lawyers are going to have a field day with this...and any public acceptance of autonomous cars will be set back several years. Ah hell, lawyers would probably have prevented it from happening any time soon, even without this incident.

Just what I was thinking. With Marchionne running things, I'd be thrilled if the company was still around
in 2019, let alone worrying about new Challengers or Cudas. The Italians should never be accused of understanding the American car market, let alone modern American muscle cars.
