Here's an interesting commentary on the value of Chris Bangle's political capital at BMW

Highlights for the article:

In truth, it's a pretty negative interview. Panke seems to be*a former McKinsey consultant

Actually, Panke doesn't give Bangle much of a vote of confidence in the interview. As far as I can see, Bangle's name isn't even mentioned in the published version*...

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

i really like the bangle quote i read a week ago in a magazine, he said "if you're going to be pushing a car company forward, you're going to leave many fans behind"

or something like that, you get the point. i thought it was an interesting way to look at it.

maybe they'll fall enough that they'll drop the prices on cars, offer $4000 back and give 0% financing like american cars do. then i can afford my 3 series
