AutoComplete: Brash Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has died
Here's what's making news on Road Show.
Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Fiat Chrysler, has died.
Mr Marchionne was widely regarded as a bold envisionary CEO and was instrumental in the turn around of Fiat and the acquisition of Chrysler in 2009.
He was simultaneously lauded and criticized for his outspoken, blunt, and often unsentimental style of management.
His passing will have a profound effect on the global automotive industry.
His successor is Mike Manley, former head of the Jeep and Ram truck brands.
Porsche is showing off its updated Macan sports crossover, and if you were a fan of the old one, then the good news is the new one's really similar.
Inside though, the old seven inch infotainment screen is gone and it's been replaced by the 11 inch touch screen from the Panamera.
Most of the exterior lighting is now LED and more closely mirrors that of the rest of the family.
Porsche is keeping mum about power train updates, but we'd be surprised if the lineup didn't get a scosche more power.
Previously if you were the type of oligarch that owned and drove a Bugatti Chiron, you were stuck with having a solid roof, something which made staring up at the many flight buildings you likely owned a challenge.
Bugatti recognized this, and is now offering the sky view roof.
In addition to letting more light into the cabin, the sky view roof adds a couple of inches of headroom for those puttacrats who are long of torso and supposedly, it stiffens the roof panels.
