Fiat Share Prices Fall as European Banks Become More Weary

The CEO of Fiat, Sergio Marchionne had recently announced that he was interested in acquiring the rest of Chrysler, and completely merge the two companies. However, this ‘announcement’ has made two European banks become more weary of the situation, and so, they`ve downgraded Fiat’s stock.

One bank, UBS AG, is changing the status of the company’s stock from a ‘buy’ rating, to a ‘neutral’ rating, while Deutsche Bank changed the stocks’ status from ‘hold’ to ‘sell. Now, as Chrysler is currently much more profitable than Fiat, and dragging it along for the ride, Marchionne is undoubtedly keen to get more of the profits of the American market, which is working much better than the one in Euope, and will do so for at least another two or three years, according to analysts.

Also, this past Tuesday, Fiat shares fell by 5.9%, the event which prompted the two aforementioned banks to react. They still need somewhere in the eregion of 1.6-billion to 2.9-billion euros to get the rest of Chrysler, yet it is highly doubtful that they actually have that much money to spend, given the current situation.

Buick May Get New Logo

Automaker logos, while they may be very important for a company’s tradition and historic value are often changed nowadays, to go along with some sort of ‘refresh’ of the range, or just to keep them looking fresh and modern, while still keeping the essence intact.

After having finished their comprehensive model overhaul of Buick, General Motors may also be changing the logo, as well. The Detroit Free Press says that GM’s North America President, Mark Reuss suggested that the three-shield logo would be altered, yet did not offer any details on how they would go about doing this.

If you take a look at what Peugeot and Citroen have done with their logos, you can kind of get an idea what Buick might do with theirs – it will be rounded off, stylized and just made to look more modern, in order to better match the brand’s newly-polished image.

2013 latest Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

After our many drives of the new 991-generation Porsche 911 Carrera over previous periods 18 several weeks, we've sensed at periods that this more nan turismo-like 911 with its broader paths and 3.9 inches wide of additional wheelbase would be particularly well best for an all-wheel-drive installation. And so we went over amazing and warm fall streets in Austria not far from the border with Slovenia where there was surprisingly little visitors anywhere to be seen. It sensed like the hill streets had been set aside just for us and this newest 911 edition, the Carrera 4S. Grumble, we didn't.

2013 porsche 911 Carrera 4s

With relatively little a chance to check the various Carrera 4 and 4S configurations when we came, we select one from the collection and trapped with it: a pretty loaded-to-the-max 394-horsepower 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet in Rushing Yellow-colored with a dark smooth top, blackened 20-inch Carrera S tires and optionally available seven-speed PDK indication. Platform cost with location cost for a Carrera 4S cabrio will begin at $118,480 when it comes in the US near Apr 2013. As examined, however, ours ran to $160,665, or what you might properly contact a footwear complete of money. If you want a C4 or C4S 911 for something nearing just a duffle bag of money, the coupes appear previously, near the begin of 2013 soon after the Detroit Auto Show, costing $91,980 for the 345-hp Carrera 4 hardtop and the 4S edition beginning at $106,580.
