Verídico, un Ls 430 que conduce porque lo considera el mejor coche del mundo y "mejor que cualquier producto construido jamás por Ford" (lo cual dice mucho del Lexus, tambien ) http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060906/BUSINESS01/609060459 Published: September 06. 2006 3:00AM Auto news TOM WALSH: Only the best will do for Mulally September 6, 2006 Email this Print this BY TOM WALSH FREE PRESS COLUMNIST Related articles: • FORD'S NEW FACE: Mulally hopes to do for struggling carmaker what he did for plane maker The newly named chief executive officer of Ford Motor Co. drives a Lexus LS 430, the flagship luxury sedan from Toyota Motor Corp. that he unabashedly says he purchased because "it's the finest car in the world." That fact alone tells us a lot about Alan Mulally, the 37-year Boeing Co. veteran who was introduced Tuesday in Dearborn as Ford's new president and CEO. Mulally, who led Boeing's recent comeback to overtake European rival Airbus in new commercial airplane orders, is a realist. He knows at Ford, he's not joining a company at the top of its game. He's also candid. He knows Lexus cars are better than anything currently in Ford's lineup, and he doesn't care if Ford employees or the media hear him say it out loud. And he's got some moxie, enough to think he can help put Ford Motor back on top of the heap in a brutally competitive global market. Mulally's appointment also is proof that Bill Ford and the company's board finally, and fully, grasp the grim reality of Ford Motor's predicament in today's stormy auto market. Ford Motor was a ship lurching in treacherous waters with the wrong product mix for current conditions, a management crew light on big-time executive experience and an earnest but overmatched captain -- Bill Ford, acting as chairman, CEO, advertising pitchman and chief bottle-washer. "I had too much to do. I was wearing too many hats," Ford said Tuesday. Ford Motor's sales had dropped from more than 4 million vehicles in 2000 to less than 3 million in 2005.
