You really hooked into some strange shit with this link. First the car appears to be a current Dodge Challenger with some poor photo shop work. Secondly the copy looks to be translated by a Japanese company, circa 1960. It get's even odder still, if you do a bit more Googling, as you will find another article, in bizarrely phrased English, that obviously shopped a Chevy grill on a BMW, displayed at an auto expo. They even take the time to do a hack job of shopping out the BMW sign overhead. Don't know what you found, or why, but it isn't anything close to reality, just weird.


EDIT:  I don't know if the OP really looked at the stuff he pasted, but it you read it as if you are doing English translations for a Godzilla movie, it's funny as hell.

Yeah, there's a whole weird underground of "automotive news" sites with similar copy (similarly devoid of facts, anyway).  I'm a Buick Grand National fan, and every few months another photoshopped Chevy shows up as the "new GN", described in mangled English. 

You for to like our site now?

I saw that article a few months ago and figured a chatbot crafted it to generate clicks.

That said, I love some of the retro cars. The new challenger is my favorite, with the Camaro a close second... I hope to pick up a 5 year old used one in a few years. If they brought back the chevelle, it would probably sell. those retro cars do a fair job of capturing the personality of those cars... something distinctly lacking from most modern transportation appliances.

I'm more interested in the 2nd generation Chevy Volt.  It will have 50 miles of EV range before the generator kicks in.  I don't think they've named the 300 mile range EV they are scheduled in 2017 yet.

Right now, though, we're happy with our Ford Fusion Hybrid and Ford C-Max Energi Plug-in Hybrid.  Good solid American technology and we use very little gas when we need to drive somewhere.

Why do you think the US auto industry doesn't "get it"?

Cars today are as good as they've ever been and more; muscle cars are seeing a renaissance due to reasonable cost, okay gas mileage (compared to originals), consumer confidence, and oh yeah, classic styling with modern handling and very nice power outputs. So we may get a chevelle SS that looks good and people want to buy. They buy it. US auto industry makes money. I think they "get" making money. Yes?

The new challenger and charger, the new camaro, the new corvette, the new mustang, you may not like them for personal reasons, but you can't deny that they look decent and tick a hell of a lot of checkboxes - namely power and handling.

My first car was a 1970 Chevy Chevelle in Sea Mist Green bought used for I think 2k back in 1982.
Not the SS model though & had the 307 V8 & vinyl top.
Drove that bad boy w/ my first love & dog across the USA camping from Northern Vt to Santa Cruz, CA & back.
I cannot imagine buying a remake.
Gosh that car was awesome back in the day.  Never gave me a lick of trouble.  Sold it to go in the Army.

I'm ashamed to say it, but I'd have to fight myself not to buy a Nova if they brought it back.

American car companies "don't get it" because they make big fugly cars that get lousy MPG. Meanwhile, the rest of the world makes smaller more efficient vehicles.

Some of us need penis extensions.

I keep saying I'm going to buy a Cadillac CTS-V when I get my mortgage paid off. I don't really care for vacations; cars are my splurge.

A discharge date of September 2015!
It will have a length of more than five meters, and the weight will be under two tons!
There will be numerous elements for everyone!

I love word salad, thank you for this, OP.

Yet another authoritarian type... thinking because you don't like something, that nobody should like it or have one. GM, Ford, Dodge, ALL make smaller cars that get decent mileage. They ALSO make cars that are larger, and offer a driving experience that is more fun and less neutered than your typical auto appliance. And given the sales numbers, I don't think YOU get it. 

Don't like the retro cars? don't buy one.

I drive a 2012 myself... the '16 sounds like a really good car all around, and it will be among our options unless we've gone all-BEV by then.

They've been calling it the Bolt all along, despite the chorus of disdain. At this point they are unlikely to change course on that.
They have supposedly built 55 of them for testing and are getting 200+ miles regularly.

DW tried out the Fusion Energi the other day. It gets a lot of trash talk from EV enthusiasts for the low AER but it seems like a great car in all other regards.

The new Chevy BEV will be called the Bolt and I'm pretty sure they're shooting for 200 mile range, not 300.  Also, I'm not a Volt fan.  Unless you're driving 20-30 miles per day AND making 200 mile trips on the weekends AND are a single car family then there's no point in getting the car as a BEV or a standard Hybrid will serve you better.  The 50 mile range significantly improves its spectrum of usefulness, but if you haven't made the plunge yet, I think it would behoove you to just wait until the Bolt and Model 3 (Tesla) come out in 2017.

This is quite true, but I find that they all look the same. This doesn't look TOO different from the new camero or the chargers and challengers. The older styles had more flair and individual identities.

Power and handling they definitely have. So does my Mazda 3. **Okay, so I know it is no where near the same as these 6 and 8 cylinder beasts, yet I have yet to find myself in a situation where I needed more power, more handling, or more acceleration**

I think it doesn't look different because it's just a photoshopped Dodge Challenger.

We have solar panels, so right now we can charge up my wife's C-Max Energi for free and get 21 miles of EV range before switching to gas power.  It's been pretty useful so far.  On longer trips between the electric motor and gas engine, we usually get around 200 mpg.  I'd probably be the one to get a pure BEV, because I drive much less than she does.  She need a very long-range due to her work and right now pure BEV's aren't flexible enough for her needs.

Cool. So don't buy a car that has more power output, faster acceleration, or better handling. Tautologically, it's not for you. But claiming that other people don't want it is just silly.

Upon further review: the article I posted might be "clickbait" full of gibberish and photoshopped pictures...

BUT

All of you spouting the "goodness" of American car culture deserve a FACEPUNCH right between the eyes. Yes, occasionally Ford does do something right but 99% of American vehicles are big ugly boxes that get pisspoor MPG.

In MMMs "Top Ten Cars of Smart People" there is only ONE American car on the list. http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/2012/03/19/top-10-cars-for-smart-people/

A few years back, when my kids were both in college, I bought two of the recommended Focus's on the MMM list.  They were used, cheap, well maintained, low mileage, and absolute shit-boxes. Unreliable, uncomfortable, noisy rattle traps. Fortunately, one was lost to a hail event. My son nearly beat his to death, then found some chump that had to have it, for FAR more than it was worth, since it was a 2DR, manual trans. In the end we got two years of service out of the pair and didn't lose too much, but damn they are junk. Some others on the list are just as suspect, like the older Suzuki and Hyundai products.

Have you looked at the Big 3's lineup recently?

on GMs website, The first four cars they have, get 39 MPG+, have diesel options, and are reasonably sized and stylish. The other is a full sized car, and the last one is electric. (volt.) Then there's the Camaro and Corvette... both of which aren't for someone who wants the most efficient way to convert dollars into distance traveled, they're for someone who WANTS a car that offers a driving experience that is somewhat more exciting than a lobotomy.

If that's facepunch worthy, fine. I'll take that one square between the eyes, and continue on my way. I fully recognize that these types of cars are a WANT, not a need, and still make that decision. I, for one, am glad there's a choice. It would be unfortunate if they went away for those of us who go into the situation with our eyes wide open.

My 2000 Ford Focus served me well for the 10 years I owned it.  I replaced an alternator and wheel bearing, otherwise everything else was normal maintenance (tires, oil changes, brakes, etc.).  I put about 90,000 miles on it before I sold it.  I bought it in college as well and sold it after we had two kids.

American cars are generally perfectly fine unless you buy one from before 2005.  Since then, the differences between domestic and foreign makes are negligible.  In fact, most "foreign" cars are built in the USA anyway (although built with cheap, non-union labor in welfare states.)

As someone else noted, I mostly agree with you if the class is older vehicles. But from what I've seen / driven / owned, with modern cars, domestics are right with imports. And I'd say better in some areas.
