Default The Most Powerful Automotive People in the world

Did you know that the man who once engineered the Porsche 911 (Ulrich Bez) is now working day and night to design a car that will beat it?

And that VW Chairman ( Bernd Pischetsrieder ) owns a Ferrari Enzo, and crashed a Mclaren F1 during his BMW days?

That Wendelin Wiedeking is the man who got Porsche back to profitability. He is an ex-Toyota graduate!

That in Non-F1 America, Luca Montezemolo and Michael Schumacher are the no.10 and no.11, respectively, on the most powerful list?

Or that Carlos Ghosn and Fords Vice President - Design (J Mays) have only one sports car in their garage : The Porsche 911?

That Burkhard Goeschel ( BMW AG management board member in charge of development and purchasing ) must be hated as much as Chris Bangle for the "Bangled" BMWs?

Read on this and more at Motor Trend - The Power List.

Highly Recommended read for car guys...
