Following the wake-up call from Huawei’s chip supply crisis, Chinese vehicle sector is rushing to foster domestic technologies and achieve greater self-reliance.

Automaker BYD is reportedly negotiating with Germany’s Daimler to supply automotive chips for the latter’s electric vehicles (EVs).

BYD did not respond to the Global Times’ inquiry as of press time.

If the reports are true, it means BYD’s technology competence in the EV sector has reached a new level, Yu Qingjiao, secretary general of the Zhongguancun New Battery Technology Innovation Alliance, told the Global Times on Wednesday.

“Compared with other EV makers that rely on imports or the joint development of automotive chipsets, BYD attaches more importance to self-development, and its technological foundation in electronic goods can help it in the

‘Festive season to push auto sales but disproportionate billings may lead to stress for dealers’

Although festive season demand may provide some temporary relief to the auto industry in the next two-three months, the continued disproportionate wholesale billings by original equipment manufacturers could lead to increased stress for dealers if uptake is lower than expected, according to a report.

 In its latest report on the auto sector, India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra) on Friday said retail sales are likely to continue to lag behind wholesale sales in September 2020 although the sector has reported a month-on-month rise in sales over May-August 2020 after the washout in April.

“After an above-average acreage backed by adequate monsoon, the prospects of a robust kharif harvest have original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) hoping for a retail demand revival from the rural side during the upcoming festive season,” the ratings agency said in a statement. It added that sales are likely to remain sluggish in September, especially on the retail side,

This 1989 Porsche 930 Turbo Convertible Is a Rare Widowmaker

Porsche’s turbocharging legacy started with racing cars, and by the middle of the 1970s, the Neunelfer received a snail as well. The 930 was the fastest production car in Germany when it was introduced, and the force-fed model soldiered on for 14 years until the 964 Turbo took over with minimal revisions to the flat-six engine.

This black beauty here is one of the final units ever produced, a 930 “with the magic letter K in the chassis number.” This identifies the widowmaker in the photo gallery as one of 844 turbo convertibles with the G50 five-speed manual transmission and the 467th of 600 U.S. models according to the selling dealership.

DLS Automobile didn’t list an asking price for this blast from the past, but it does mention that the open-top Porker spent almost 20 years in Ohio, Florida, and New York under previous ownership. The car was involved in

FTC Wrongly Got Docs In Auto Dealer DMS Suit, Court Told

Law360 (September 24, 2020, 5:31 PM EDT) — A technology provider that works with car dealerships has urged an Illinois federal judge to order the return or destruction of confidential materials it says wrongly got into the Federal Trade Commission’s hands after serving as third-party testimony in an antitrust suit.

AutoMate Inc. sought a protective order and sanctions to pay its costs in filing the motion because it says the transfer of documents and testimony violated an April 2018 confidentiality order.

The controversy follows closely on another discovery dustup in the massive multidistrict litigation, in which CDK Global LLC and Reynolds and Reynolds Co. are accused of monopolizing the market…

The live now, pay later economy comes at a heavy cost for us all | Economics

Why would you want to own anything when you can rent? It is a question being asked of cash-strapped millennials whenever they think about hitting the high street.

John Lewis is the latest to tell young people they can have it all, or in most cases the bare necessities of modern life, if they would just learn to lease or rent whatever it is they need – a computer, sofa or desk chair. Don’t wait, says the department store, until you have the savings to pay for something outright (which may be never happen). Overcome those silly concerns about student loans, mounting credit card debts and a lack of savings by signing one lease or rent deal after another to get whatever you need.

Books like Chloe Timperley’s Generation Rent and Shiv Malik and Ed Howker’s Jilted Generation focus mostly on the exorbitant house prices that push young people into
