The above Renaults look, to me at least, like they were played with via a distorting app. I half expected to see dog ears on them. As for the 500 styling, it just makes Bubble Cars look better to me.

Not a bad looking car. Shame about that unsightly growth on its nose, though.

FCA and Renault shares drop after merger talks collapse

I wonder if it this deal will be resurrected or if FCA will be looking for other suitors?

Renault-Nissan alliance crumbles with Carlos Ghosn gone
https://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Nissan ... Ghosn-gone

For those that weren't aware, besides plenty of sharing (e.g. platforms, engines, etc.) in some cases, Nissans were built in the same plant as Renaults like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJDlPwVJ9Sc. More details at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCOWWEu1QLk.

And, previously, the Renault Samsung Motors plant in South Korea also built Nissan Rogues: https://media.group.renault.com/global/ ... e-du-nord1.
