The above Renaults look, to me at least, like they were played with via a distorting app. I half expected to see dog ears on them. As for the 500 styling, it just makes Bubble Cars look better to me.

Heh. The https://www.renault.fr/vehicules/vehicu ... isman.html looks ok to me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lLmLAsTSgQ was a summary of the intro w/Carlos Ghosn doing the unveil.

The movie Children of Men had some odd looking Renaults in it: https://www.imcdb.org/m206634.html like the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renault_Avantime and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renault_M ... 80%932009).

Not a bad looking car. Shame about that unsightly growth on its nose, though.

FCA and Renault shares drop after merger talks collapse
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-rena ... SKCN1T62WE

I wonder if it this deal will be resurrected or if FCA will be looking for other suitors?

Renault-Nissan alliance crumbles with Carlos Ghosn gone
https://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Nissan ... Ghosn-gone

For those that weren't aware, besides plenty of sharing (e.g. platforms, engines, etc.) in some cases, Nissans were built in the same plant as Renaults like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJDlPwVJ9Sc. More details at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCOWWEu1QLk.

And, previously, the Renault Samsung Motors plant in South Korea also built Nissan Rogues: https://media.group.renault.com/global/ ... e-du-nord1.

:o Nissan to Report 90% Plunge in Profit, Report Says
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles ... says[quote]
Nissan Motor Co. said a media report that the company’s operating profit dropped about 90% last quarter was “broadly accurate,” in the latest indication that pressure is building for Chief Executive Officer Hiroto Saikawa to step up efforts to turn around the automaker.[/quote]

Was worse than that. :(

Nissan will cut 12,500 jobs after its profits plunged 99%
https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/25/business ... index.html

I haven't read the verbiage of Nissan's filings, but some of the other coverage seemed to blame it on Ghosn... sure, blame it on the previous guy rather than the current CEO. Seems like Ghosn handed over the Nissan CEO reigns over to Saikawa in April 2017: https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2017/ ... place-ceo/.

That incredible drop, if anticipated, would have been a great motive for scapegoating Ghosn. Just saying...
