    It will be interesting to see what the blending of Nissan, Renault, and Mitsubishi parts will bring. I think they’re shooting for a “premium value” niche where you get a nicer package than you would expect for the money you spent.

    Hey maybe Rolls Royce can sell their mini robot technology to the medical industry. Sean your not old enough but John may appreciate some of the checks that should could be done with tiny little robot. :-)

    I believe you will see more splits come as I mentioned before the auto companies bought and partnered with anyone they thought would provide them an advantage in AV and EV technology. So if this technology doesnt pan out to be the huge payoff that so many predict no sense dragging the main corporation down with it. IMO

    Ramsey Hermes from Shiloh is in full spin mode here. All the same engineering advanced he is talking about could have, and would have been put into place, simply to be competitive and maximize their own profit.

    Claiming that the higher materials cost because of that stupid tariff, is an ‘opportunity’, is looking at the whole situation with deliberate misdirection.

    I mean, I GET it. No one in any US industry can publicly complain about Trump these days. If they do, he’ll find a way to punish their stock price with a Twittter rant. He’s done it before, and he’ll do it again, so nobody wants to be honest, and take that chance. But come on. “Opportunity”? Please.

    Nobody’s being fooled into believing that the tariffs are an ‘opportunity’ for anyone, except Trump to appeal to his uninformed, cult-of-personality seeking base. Nobody wins a trade war. Everybody that has any real knowledge of them knows that.
