Bob Lutz, General Motor's Vice Chairman of Global Development, made a special trip to the San Francisco area on November 14th to address a meeting of the Western Automotive Journalists.
While theres no doubt about why WAJ would extend an invitation to one of the industrys living legends, Bob made it clear from the very beginning that he, too, had motivation for being there. The Bay Area and Northern California is not exactly a hot bed of General Motors sales or GM presence on the road. For that matter, neither is Southern California, he said. And then Bob continued, But as influencers and thought leaders you can help us get the message out there if you know the truth about us. And thats why this is a great opportunity for me to have a captive audience and to tell you all about what I want you to know, and I am going to seize that opportunity fully.
More than one WAJ member was heard to say at evenings conclusion that they thought there was ample reason to take a closer, longer look at GMs new products. And to that point we recommend Carey Russ' recent review of the 2008 Cadillac CTS.
Were now pleased to present Bob Lutz entire presentation for the pleasure and education of our audience; be you consumer, enthusiast or automotive professional. For ease of viewing we broke the 90-plus minutes into several parts. Please click the following links to access the various segments.
On behalf of everyone at The Auto Channel, I hope you find Mr. Lutz comments as fascinating as we do.
Thanks for TACHing.
