Webcarstory Rinspeed FR (8168)
Hi, this is a false make (it will erase later).
Before the summer, like each year, i ask you about new feature for Webcarstory or things to change, erase etc. Each year i had a lot of time in summer to do it.
My proposition: return of the model cars (i had erase them quickly in the past), because a lot of men passionate by cars collect some models cars and it could be a new public for WCS.

What about your propositions? Changes? Critics about my proposition?

Genesis (USA) carcrasher88 US (13)Well, by 2020, they plan to introduce a coupe (possibly somewhat previewed by the Essentia) and two SUVs. They're actually selling quite well, and recently jumped to the very top of Consumer Report's vehicle scoring and vehicle reliability rankings.

Give 'em time, and they'll have an even bigger and better lineup.

I think Ford will never put a V8 in a new car again, and the V8 engine will probably become exclusive to the Mustang, if Ford doesn't replace it with a V6 TT.

Yeah.
But on the good side I know a guy who can make V8 swap easily :p

Genesis (USA) Desscythe17 NL (9358)
I'm kind of surprised Genesis is first introducing three sedans to the American market before bringing a crossover. Cadillac is a perfect example of a brand that has too many sedans and too few crossovers, and because of that has terrible sales (besides the Escalade). I think that is a bad sign for Genesis if they don't bring anything into SUV-land soon.

Fiat (and Lancia as well before they were gone) often made special editions of the 500/Ypsilon together with different fashion labels. Having a jeans-themed 500 isn't too different from that, so there you go.

Starting next year, this and other Lynk & Co models will be produced in Ghent, Belgium. This factory is currently a big Volvo factory, but the new XC40 which is produced over there shares a lot of its design with the L&C 01 and 02. 2018-03-27 00:09
1982-1987 Ford Telstar MkI
Desscythe17 NL (9358)
The Telstar got a facelift in 1985, but the only obvious change is that the front indicators moved down to the bumper (like you can see on the main picture). Due to a lack of pictures, the pre- and post-facelift cars will not get separate pages for now. 2018-03-26 16:43

1999-2001 Ford Ka
Desscythe17 NL (9358)
The Ford Ka was briefly sold in Japan, albeit slightly different from the European one. Due to the Japanese climate, Ford Japan decided to add a large radiator and airco, which required a larger grille. The Japanese model could only be bought with most options on European models as standard trim. Sales ended after two years, as the car didn't sell well. This is likely due to the car not being available with an automatic transmission, the manual version not having a tachometer, and not being sporty enough in general.

Since 2018 Honda Jade
Desscythe17 NL (9358)
It's interesting to see how the segment of the Honda Jade is coming to an end. The Honda Jade falls into the 7-seater "wagon" segment, meaning it has three rows of chairs, but also a low roof.
This page is for the updated model that will start selling in May, and Honda has decided to discontinue the regular 7-seater version due to low sales, and only sell the RS, which has two rows of chairs.
We can see the same happened with its predecessor, the Honda Stream, which lost its three-row specification in 2012, whereas the two-row Stream RSZ was only discontinued in 2014.

If we take a look at its competitors, it's clear that this kind of car is coming to an end. The Mazda Premacy and its sister car Nissan Lafesta are both discontinued, although the Nissan is still present on their website.
The Subaru Exiga is planned to stop selling by the end of this month, and the Toyota Prius alpha is probably not getting a successor when the current generation ends.

Unlike the big Japanese minivans, like the Honda Odyssey, Nissan Elgrand and Toyota Alphard, this segment is clearly losing sales to crossovers, which are more trendy than the more conservative wagons.

Since 2018 GMC Sierra Denali Mk.IV
Desscythe17 NL (9358)
carcrasher88 wrote Clearly, GMC is looking to revolutionize the pickup truck market with the new Sierra.

Two new GMC exclusive, industry first features available for the Sierra are the new MultiPro Tailgate, with six unique positions and functions, with a smaller tailgate portion that can be pulled down, while the rest of the tailgate stays in place, and the revolutionary CarbonPro cargo box, which is the first ever production pickup truck bed made with carbon fiber inner panels and floor. While the rest of the cargo box remains roll-formed high strength steel, the CarbonPro setup shaves 62 lbs from the standard bed's weight.

Well, I don't know if the Silverado will have these functions on higher trim levels, but I think it's kind of a shame that they would make this truck have "revolutionary" features, yet give it a very conservative design. I generally prefer GMC designs, but this time the Silverado looks much better and more innovative.

Because we had do that for BMW Sauber. It's Alfa Romeo sponsorship with the 2018 Ferrari engine. So you can do as you want, if you want to put them as Sauber, you can. Perhaps Sauber Alfa Romeo and Red Bull Aston Martin (the cars will be also in Alfa Romeo and Aston Martin pages)
