This week while we’re enjoying some beers on the set, our special guest will just be having his first cup of coffee. That’s because Peter Robinson, contributing editor for Wheels magazine, will be Skyping in all the way from the land down under — a difference of 14 hours. We’ll be asking him about the latest automotive issues in Australia and find out what Aussie-derived platforms we can expect stateside. We’ll also get into the news of the week including California’s EV mandate that says 5.5% of all vehicles sold must be EVs by 2018. Also, CAR says that reaching the CAFE goal of 62 MPG will cost an additional $4,000 – $9,000. John McElroy is joined in studio by the one and only Autoextremist, Peter De Lorenzo.
