Bob Lutz And General Motors Might Still Have Another Chapter Together


Robert “Bob” Lutz is quite a personality. He flies fighter jets, rides super-bikes and even at age 79, he is one of the most wanted guys in the automotive industry.

He has worked for all the main American car firms, and was recently also linked as an advisor to Lotus. But perhaps what he is most well-known for is putting General Motors on the right track.

While he might officially be retired, GM still wants his advice and according to reports, would like him to come in as a paid consultant.

Lutz said in a recent interview that he has “the utmost respect for the GM management. If they want me back as a consultant, I’d be very happy to consider it.”

Lutz has been credited with the development of the Chevrolet Volt, and pushing ideas such as the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky into production. From the looks of things, the Lutz era with GM is far from over.
