The Bob Lutz Prophesies - How Did He Do? +VIDEO


AUTO CENTRAL - August 24, 2015: About 8 years ago, Bob Lutz visited the Western Automotive Journalists in Northern California. At the time, Bob was General Motors' vice chairman. He had just come up from Los Angeles where he was the primary presenter at the GM and Chevrolet Press Conference at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Bob's appearance at WAJ was to talk all about GM, it's products, and the future. What made this presentation so special is that 2007 is the year GM introduced the Volt and it was just months before GM was forced to move into bankruptcy. Bob provided a prepared presentation of nearly an hour, and then spent another 40 minutes answering some very hard-hitting questions that required all of Bob' prognostic abilities.

Watch the videos to see how he did, and let us know what you think.
