Could more news have been crammed into one week? Hardly. GM decides to keep Opel, Ford posts a billion-dollar profit and Toyota gets in trouble with NHTSA. All that, plus the After Hours guys are all whipped after a nine-hour marathon press conference at Chrysler. So what does Fiat’s wizkid have up his sleeve? Find out in today’s show as John McElroy is joined by regulars Peter De Lorenzo the Autoextremist and David Welch of BusinessWeek as well as guest panelist Paul Eisenstein from TheDetroitBureau.com.

    The Chrysler presentation the other day listed the Viper replacement as a major redesign of the existing model (if they have the money) not a new vehicle from the Fiat Group. So, same architecture as the current car, but potentially a new body and updated engine.

    The scoop on the HS250h? Although they launched it first, it’s actually a mild reworking of the JDM Toyota Sai hybrid sedan Toyota had already been working on to replace its rwd Progres and Brevis premium compacts.

  2. Andrew Charles Says:

    The new E-Class wagon will have an optional rear facing third row in at least some markets.

    What happened? Autoline After Hours is no longer showing up on Itunes podcasts. I used to download it on Fridays or Saturdays, but as of this morning (Monday), the program isn’t in Itunes. Is there a problem?
