Dancing on Tesla’s Grave

Why are so many members of the automotive media rooting for Tesla to fail?

2020 Ford Bronco

Ford isn’t quite ready to take the wraps off its forthcoming Bronco just yet, but the company issued this teaser photo that reveals a rugged-looking boxy profile, a high-riding stance, and what looks like a rear-mounted spare tire.

Ford Motor Company today unveiled its plans to replace more than 75 percent of its model lineup by 2020, and is aiming to have the “freshest” product roster in the North American market by that time. The manufacturer will focus heavily on trucks, SUVs, and hybrid vehicles in the next 24 months. More pure-electric vehicles are slated to follow starting in 2020, with six battery electric vehicles (BEVs) planned for introduction by 2022.

If you’re into music, you probably remember the swing revival that took place in the late Nineties. That particular retro trend probably peaked in 1998, when Gap commercials populated by dancing khaki-clad youth famously featured a Louie Prima cut of “Jump, Jive an’ Wail.”
