(Archived video after the jump below)

This week we’re going to resist the temptation to polish up our Cockney accents, but we might just call our special guest “guv’nah” since he’s Skyping in live from the UK. Karl Ludvigsen is an independent motor industry consultant and all-around car guy. He also wrote the well-known book “Porsche: Excellence was Expected.” On the docket tonight, we’ll discuss some European goings on. Who will Fiat merge with? How will GM save Opel? Also we’ll talk about Audi’s new Traffic Jam Assist technology — a very real step toward automotive autonomy. All this and much more with John McElroy and Peter De Lorenzo the Autoextremist. Cheerio!
