Nothing quite makes the news like a Bob Lutz quote. The 78 year-old automotive legend, who is in the process of packing up his office and leaving General Motors as we speak, always seems to have a way with his eccentric words that keep the PR department at the ready. The latest installment to his animadversions comes in light of Toyota’s ill-timed hardship in the recent months.
Lutz went out of his way to say that “Toyota’s God-like status will never be reclaimed.” Now, that jab at The General’s biggest rival may stir some pots, but it surely won’t top his most epic quote, “global warming is a crock of shit”.
Oh how we will miss him.
