2014s are due pretty soon. They just wrapped up some stuff with the new 2.5L.

In any case, what Reuss is talking about is starting to sound less like a specific product but more a new modular platform that will be utilized across all brands.

Well, it is about time for Voltec 2.0 to make an appearance, right?

I think what you said before about a new 2nd gen concept Volt riding on a new lighter modular platform sounds pretty reasonable to me.

But isn't that was Alpha is....a lighter modular platform??

I don't think what will be shown will be a new model either (aside from the Colorado/Canyon which sounds like it may get a diesel engine option).

I think they are going to introduce a FRS/BRZ fighter...something for a younger generation. That is affordable and fun to drive.

Tesla's doing good but they're a looooooong way from GM, Ford, or Chrysler levels.

How many total cars have they built this year compared to GM, Ford or Chrysler?
The fewer cars you build you have more time for each one.

The big 3 have probably built about a thousand between them for every 1 that Tesla has this year.

And the less experience you have building cars, the more time you need.

In case anyone was wondering when this thing was going to debut.

Can't wait.

If all goes well, next year we'll be in a new 2015!
