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.
