Wednesday Night Fight: Lutz vs. Letterman

Remember a couple of weeks ago when David Letterman gave Tesla frontman Elon Musk a softball interview and a big, fuzzy reacharound to celebrate the Tesla Model S? Remember how he bashed the Chevrolet Volt in the process? No? Well you'll have to take our word for it, because the clip isn't available on CBS's crappy website for old people video database.

Anyway, Bob Lutz--GM's answer to Joe Biden--fired back with a nasty blog post that said, in essence, "My friends and I don't watch much of this newfangled television technology, but I hear that someone made disparaging remarks about a General Motors automobile. Surely, we shall come to fisticuffs!"

And fisticuffs it shall be this Wednesday evening, as Lutz and Letterman go mano-a-mano in Midtown. We don't know how the rumble's going to roll, but between Letterman's one-liners and Lutz's hot head, the Volt-centric segment is bound to be entertaining, and probably pretty humorous. We hope Lutz's shuffleboard buddies have Tivo so they can watch it Thursday morning.

  1. "Bob Putz"

    Lutz is still the GM "car guy", but he has turned into a PR putz. Geriatric posing with rapper, check. Pissing contest with smarter (and funnier) media types, check. Helping drive company into bankruptcy, check. I understand the rest of world blogs, but he is a humorless git. Plus, the stench of Depends does NOT do wonders for the younger demographics who are supposed to want to buy your cars. He should have kept a low profile. Glad to see he's stepping down.

    Bad stuff?

  2. "get it right"

    I like Lutz and think he GM would be worse off (if you can imagine that right now) without him. But like him or not and approve of his PR or not he was justified in his blog and I don't think it was particularly nasty either. what do you expect him to do? Furthermore, what does Dave Letterman know about the car industry? Maybe he should think about the message he makes especially since the vast majority of people he can influence with his words every night probably know even less.
