Not really design, but...

Obama just announced new fuel economy standards for 2016. Jalopnik points out that no automake meets the standards today and only Toyota and Honda are even close. Luckily, everyone has seven years to catch up.

Also, Honda is finally vindicated over their decision to not build a V8. I troll the Honda boards too and you wouldn’t believe how much crap they have taken for sticking with V6s. Now they look like an automotive Nostradamus.

Its not exactly an apples to apples comparison. This is the government we’re talking about

26 to 27 mpg should get it.

I had to laugh when the GM apparatchik expressed satisfaction & relief at the “new” CAFE standards & how they were good for the country. What else was he supposed to do - complain & get fired like Wagoner & Lutz?
