Peugeot Citroen returning to the U.S.?

Citroen may have bombed with its updated DS model, but the French automaker could have much better luck with its reimagined 2CV.

New Tactic For Unions On Strike: Threaten To Blow Up Factory

The French are different. Just look at their cars, which have included single-spoke steering wheels, turn indicators that don't self-cancel (to keep the driver on his toes?), and pneumatic suspensions that let them sink to the ground with a sigh when parked.

Citroen GT Concept
GT by Citroën Will Leave Us in the Dust, For Real

Back in October at the Paris Motor Show, Citroën unveiled the GT by Citroën (or sometimes, more annoyingly, the GTbyCitroën). It was a concept car, and like many concept cars, it was supersnazzy.
