    So, like, let’s say that you stop making a car. You still have to make parts for the car for seven years, right? So that the people who bought a 2018 Whatever aren’t screwed over for seven years.

    So Ford doing this sort of thing means… what? Driverless Cars rule the world come 2025? Specifically: Driverless SUVs?Report

    GE used to be a light bulb manufacturer. I suspect making aircraft engines and medical devices is much more what it’s about these days.

    IBM used to sell punch card tabulators. To my knowledge, it’s more of a software consulting company now.

    Alsotoo, Apple used to make and sell computers. Now it’s about smart phones and music.Report

    I don’t know if this site is accurate, but it has Ford’s 2017 domestic car sales as 22% of their total domestic unit sales (555,838 out of 2,475,556).

    Sedans are annoying. Not very flexible or re-configurable, and the back seat legroom almost always reminds me of coach class. The advantage of sedans used to be in the mileage, in that they got significantly better mileage than an SUV. These days, that advantage is thin.Report
