Bob Lutz interviewed by bloggers in Detroit, as covered by Autoblog Green:
I need to correct a misperception. I am not head of design. The head of design is one of my direct reports. I’m afraid I am not sufficiently artistically gifted to act as a designer, but as a kid I wanted to be a car designer. One evening my father said let me see your drawings. No, that’s not gonna make it. Why don’t you get a business degree instead?
Bob Lutz sketches a Saab as he envisions a Saab should be, as covered in Dagens Industri:
Well, he basically (sort of) drew a 900, which is a good sign. Gotta be pleased with that.
I’m also glad he took his Dad’s advice.
Thanks again to ctm, who is creating more material than me at the moment due to this family visit.
