Don't blame the French. The whole automotive world is changing. French, German, British, American, Korean, and Japanese companies are all making changes in response to changing public demands. And to survive; manufacturers have to adapt and overcome. Hey, I love the sound and feel of driving a V8 because that's what I've grown up with. (My first car back in 1975 was a '68 Charger R/T with a 440, TorqueFlite, and Dana 60.) In the near future there will be a generation that will love the sound (or lack of) and feel of driving an electric vehicle. And - by the way - those EVs are faster. I know guys that said they'd never use power-adders (NOS, turbos, superchargers.). They said it had to be all-motor to be legit. Now those same guys are already giving up their NOS systems to build turbo-power engines because they're faster on the street. My point is ... times change and people change. More than being an "anti muscle car" thing. It's a "pro performance" thing. Because customers demand performance. And regardless of any of our political preferences ... Biden must be somewhat of a "car guy" because I hear he has a classic Vette and gets behind the wheel. Don't expect everyone to agree with you here or anywhere else. Ever ask a group of guys on a hunting trip what is the best way to build a campfire?
