How much bird crap does it take to crush a Smart car? Thanks to one snarky blogger, the company crunched some numbers to find out.
That Chevy Volt. What a joke. OK, so the ‘world’s most advanced car’ isn’t actually a laughing matter, potentially changing the auto industry forever while altering people’s perceptions of General Motors at a time when it needed help the most, but apparently it’s far enough on the fringes of car culture to attract April Fool’s speculators.
In total, three Volt-based April Fools jokes have been tabled so far, ranging from the unbelievable to the ridiculous. First up came Road & Track‘s “exclusive” Chevy Volt Convertible. We do have to give them credit for creating more than just one photochop of the car, and some genuine thought actually went into dreaming up a new powertrain.
Next up, we couldn’t look past our colleagues at GMInsideNews, who presented us with not one, but two hoaxes this morning: a Chevy Volt Pickup truck, as well as a story about the next-gen Corvette getting a Voltec powertrain.
