4 Athens please... "The "Medusa" radars in France before legalization. They are radars which detect the noise of the vehicles. If a vehicle makes too much noise it is flashed and a fine is sent. The goal is to target the very noisy motorcycles and scooters as well as the modified cars."
Why do some car companies keep the number of cars painted in different colors a secret, even though they routinely publish quantities of cars and models they make.
I have a car in a somewhat rare color and the car manufacturer routinely reports the numbers of each model but they keep the number of cars made in each color secret.
Any idea why they would so this?
Perhaps they don't actually keep track of it very well or is there some sort of trade secret value in not disclosing it?
My car is a 2002 Porsche 911 Turbo in Orient Red Metallic. I've only seen 1 other 996 turbo (2002-2005) in that color in all the years since I bought mine new.
TIL - In 1948 the Mahindra car company struck a deal with Willy's Overland Corp., makers of the original WW2 MB 1/4 ton utility trucks, to make a model for the Indian market. This would eventually lead to the feud with Jeep-Stellantis over similar looking vehicles.
It’s no secret that a large majority of people like the look of classic cars and trucks. So why don’t companies like ford just make the same car like a mustang from 71 or a f100 from 76 and just add safety features on the inside? They spend money redesigning and redesigning when I feel if they used the same body they would almost be guaranteed a lot of sales.
