BMW, Mercedes Pivot From Enemies to Partners in New Auto Era BMW AG dodged a takeover attempt by Mercedes-Benz parent Daimler AG six decades ago, and ever since the two luxury-car icons have been bitter rivals — until recently. Reflecting the historic challenges gripping the auto industry, BMW and Daimler are reaching across the aisle to team up in what’s become an emerging trend in the sector. The latest rapprochement between the German manufacturers involves talks to join forces on key components including vehicle platforms, electric-car batteries and autonomous-driving technology, according to people familiar with the matter. That could mean models like the BMW 2-Series coupe and Mercedes A-Class sedan could one day share similar underpinnings, a prospect that would have been anathema to both sides just a few years ago. That’s changing as crushing development expenses for next-generation vehicles, a looming slowdown in conventional models and agile new competitors prod unprecedented cooperation. “The pressure on […]Continue reading

The Global Auto Industry Is Likely in First Recession Since 2009 The global auto industry is poised for its first sustained production drop since the financial crisis, according to RBC Capital Markets. Worldwide light-vehicle output fell 2.9 percent in the third quarter and probably will decline about 4 percent in the fourth quarter, analyst Joe Spak wrote in a report Wednesday. This will be the first back-to-back industrywide drop since 2009, he said. Automakers probably will produce about 94.6 million vehicles this year, down 0.6 percent from 2017, according to RBC’s estimates. The analysts are projecting output will drop again by 0.4 percent in 2019, with tempered growth resuming in the following years. The World’s Biggest Auto Markets Are Flashing Yellow and Red. Some of the world’s biggest auto markets may be reaching the end of the road for growth. After almost every major carmaker posted declining U.S. deliveries in […]Continue reading
Hear What the 2020 Toyota Supra Sounds Like Before It Finally Debuts in January The long wait for Toyota’s revived sports car is almost over. Toyota says the first production 2020 Supra will be auctioned off January 19, 2019, at the Barrett-Jackson auctions in Arizona to benefit the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation. Its VIN will be #20201 and it will feature a special paint scheme (teased below) including matte gray exterior paint, matte black wheels, red mirror caps, and a red leather interior featuring a carbon-fiber plaque denoting it as the first 2020 Supra. The new Toyota Supra sports car is almost here—and we mean it this time. Toyota has finally given an official release date for the highly anticipated return of the Supra nameplate: It will make its debut in January 2019 at the Detroit auto show. After that, production for the 2020 Toyota Supra will begin […]Continue reading
When Santa Brings a Car, They’ll Need a Bigger Tree Every December, the holiday classics return to television, mainstay tales like “Frosty the Snowman” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” And don’t forget those commercials where someone wakes up to a luxury car in the driveway on Christmas morning. Except those ads aren’t just Yuletide fantasies. Yes, there are people who give a car worth $60,000, $80,000 or more to someone special during the holidays, even rushing into a dealership on Christmas Eve. So many people give costly cars as presents that gift sales can make up 10 percent or more of December sales for luxury auto dealers, brand representatives and dealers say. Also, yes: Those gigantic car bows are real (picture below), and they’re a crucial factor in making the sale. “Gift cars are about 15 percent of our December business,” Chris Brunner, general manager of Park Place Lexus […]Continue reading

Unlock More Sales Without More Marketing Expense For most dealerships, selling more typically means spending more on marketing. This usually involves purchasing more leads for prospects and investing in more sales training to close deals. But what if there was a better way to turn up sales, hold down expenses, and boost the bottom line, all with greater predictability? Just shifting your marketing focus slightly can significantly impact your dealership’s sales and profits. The secret lies in knowing how to manipulate the two main components of the sales formula: leads and closing ratio. In short, leads multiplied by closing ratio equals sales. So 1,000 leads at a 30% closing ratio results in 300 closed deals. Raising your closing ratio means squeezing out extra sales — and more profit — from the same number of leads. Remarkably, however, most dealers appear to be unknowingly doing the exact opposite of what’s needed […]Continue reading
The Evolution of Automated Safety Technologies. Driver assistance technologies in today’s motor vehicles are already helping to save lives and prevent injuries. A number of today’s new motor vehicles have technology that helps drivers avoid drifting into adjacent lanes or making unsafe lane changes, or that warns drivers of other vehicles behind them when they are backing up, or that brakes automatically if a vehicle ahead of them stops or slows suddenly, among other things. These and other safety technologies use a combination of hardware (sensors, cameras, and radar) and software to help vehicles identify certain safety risks so they can warn the driver to act to avoid a crash. The continuing evolution of automotive technology aims to deliver even greater safety benefits and – one day – deliver Automated Driving Systems (ADS) that can handle the whole task of driving when we don’t want to or can’t do it ourselves. U.S. […]Continue reading
Lexus remains dealers’ most-liked brand, NADA survey finds After spending a year out of the top spot, Lexus once again is the most-liked automaker by dealers who responded to the most recent National Automobile Dealers Association Dealer Attitude Survey. The luxury brand finished ahead of its mainstream sibling, Toyota, in the winter 2018 survey, the results of which were released Monday. Lexus had been runner-up to Toyota in the previous two surveys, conducted in winter and summer of 2017. Prior to the 2017 surveys, Lexus spent several years atop the ranking. Lexus remained the most-liked brand by dealers in the latest ranking of the National Automobile Dealers Association Dealer Attitude Survey, while Porsche overtook Audi to land in the top five. Lexus sibling Toyota retained the second spot, followed by Subaru repeating at third and Honda remaining in the No. 4 position in NADA’s summer 2018 survey. NADA released the […]Continue reading
How the Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo Made Its Record-Breaking Nürburgring Lap Time Porsche gives its Le Mans program a blistering send-off. Quick at Germany’s legendary 12.9-mile, 73-turn Nürburgring Nordschleife is 7:16.04 in a 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE. Quicker is the 2018 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ that busted up the place with a 6:44.97 run, the production-car record. But awesome? Awesome is driver Timo Bernard’s 5:19.55 in the Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo. It’s the quickest lap any car has ever turned around the Nordschleife, slaughtering the 6:11.13 record that stood for a lifetime, set during qualifying in 1983 by the late Stefan Bellof in that pathetic ox cart, the Porsche 956C. Of course, Bellof was restrained by the burden of having rules to follow. Bernard, in the Evo, wasn’t. The Evo was born as a tribute to Porsche’s three-time Le Mans–winning 919 Hybrid after Porsche quit the World Endurance Championship’s LMP1 class at the end […]Continue reading
In an automotive industry that offers American buyers hundreds of different options, few models have the immediate name recognition of the compact Toyota (7203.T-JP) Prius. When it debuted in Japan in 1997, it became the world’s first mass-market hybrid electric vehicle and demand exploded when it reached the U.S. three years later. The Prius delivered around 50 miles a gallon and had far more interior space than the typical fuel-saving minicar — all at an affordable price. That made it the best-selling car of any form in California, and the best-selling hybrid vehicle worldwide earlier this decade. But, as an updated 2019 version of the Prius gets ready to roll into U.S. showrooms, Toyota is facing a difficult situation. Sales of the Prius have been tumbling for several years and were down 23.2 percent for the first 11 months of 2018. The new version delivers updates Toyota hopes will revive the hybrid’s […]Continue reading
Toyota’s top U.S. executive says car sales nationwide have nearly bottomed out and his company will keep making them despite a dramatic shift to trucks and SUVs. Toyota’s U.S. car sales are down nearly 12 percent through October. DETROIT — Toyota’s top U.S. executive says car sales nationwide have nearly bottomed out and his company will keep making them despite a dramatic shift to trucks and SUVs. U.S. CEO Jim Lentz told the Detroit Economic Club on Wednesday that car sales fell below 30 percent of sales last month, and he thinks that’s close to the bottom. While Fiat Chrysler FCAU, -1.21 %, Ford F, +0.24% and General Motors GM, -0.03% are canceling many car models, Lentz doesn’t see that happening with Toyota TM, -0.56% 7203, -0.60 %. Consumers are still buying more than 4 million compact, midsize and near-luxury cars each year, he said. “There’s no way I’m going to walk away from that,” Lentz said. “We are always […]Continue reading
