Good for him?

Shouldn't change Nissan's commitment to EVs.

Andy struck me as more of an Aston kinda' guy anyway. Best of luck to him.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Pure speculation, but I assume it'll allow him to move back to England and that's what he "really" wanted.


( People look at topic categories? :? LOL )
I think I just felt my paradigm shift.

2012 SL (One of the colors): 2-year lease, 2012+,
2015 S w/QC (A different color): 3-year lease, 2014+,
2017 SV (Same color as 2015 S): 3-year lease, 2017+, lower monthly than either above(!)

Read that it was because he wanted to be CEO . Looking forward to Aston Martin EVs.

Sounds like the new job allows pursuit of other interests.

17 April 2015

Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer will race in the Britcar 24 hour later this month at Silverstone.

Palmer and his three teammates, including Autocar's own Andrew Frankel, will be be behind the wheel of a V8 Vantage GT4, in Castrol livery. The race returns next weekend, April 23-26th, after a two-year hiatus...

That's got to be more fun than spending time in Phoenix being harangued by LEAF drivers wielding gid meters...
no condition is permanent
