Sergio Marchionne Turns Up Radio To Fill Silence While Driving Tesla Model S (w/video)
At the Geneva Motor Show, Chrysler-Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne made some ridiculous comments in regards to electric cars. (He’s well-known for that sort of thing)
Marchionne, head of Ferrari too, told reporters that all future Ferraris will be powered by internal combustion engines, and that there won’t ever be an electric Ferrari because the aggressive sound of an engine is part of the driving experience expected by Ferrari buyers.
“With Ferrari, it’s [an electric car] almost an obscene concept.”
Marchionne recalls when he drove a Tesla Model S. He said to himself “this is not Ferrari,” due mostly to the lack of noise. In fact, Marchionne say he had to crank the radio up to fill in for the lack of sound made by the Tesla.
When asked about an autonomous Ferrari, Marchionne made yet one more idiotic statement, saying “you’ll have to shoot me first.”
It seems Marchionne has just lined up Ferrari for extinction.
