Posted in: Sri Lanka scraps $1.5 bil Japan-funded light rail system See in context

Sri Lanka owes lot to Japanese generosity and investment throughout the decades since the 70’s. Unlike certain loan sharks that have recently emerged in the region, Japanese genericity has helped to bring in decent level of technology, health care and industry to the whole of the reagion Sadly countries such as Sri Lanka are too corrupt to take advantage of any of this. I have no doubt the cancelation Japanese funded rail is due to utter corruption forced by certail loan sharks – shame on you muppets Rajapakses.

And thanks to these muppets, SL is one of the most indebted countries in the world

let's face it, Japan has been a democracy since mid 1945, Japanese had plenty of opportunity to choose a leader(s) to run the country but has failed miserably!!!

Abe didn't have it easy but did try to bring women to the forefront and sort out the economy. If you (the Japanese) want to sort out your country, you economy, your living standards, your political system, you have all the opportunity in the world as you not living in some communist dictatorship, so get your head out of the bottom end and start acting like grown ups!

Posted in: Renault-Nissan's Ghosn to head Mitsubishi Motors: report See in context

As a Mitsubishi fan , I’m happy to see a brighter future for Mitsubishi Motors, it is a legend in world of automotive with a great history to prove it. However it has been run in to ground by incompetent and decadent management how had no interests in the company other than their own. I certainly hope Mitysubish gets back to finding a niche which they are fully capable of and getting back to motorsport, rallying in particular.

For Japan , this need to be two way track , no choice. Yes the diesel technology has been hammered in the recent months but Japanese lost out to Europeans and Koreans due to lack of foresight in to diesel who’s market share had been growing and had contributed vast profits for those manufactures who invested in it. So it need to be both EV and FC, it is not going to be cheap but it will ensure the future survival

Posted in: Lexus seeks design edge over premium rivals See in context

The grill has a distinctive character, it will mature over time, so keep it! It will win and lose customers, that is life but important thing is to develop a design strategy and stick to it and develop it, flip-flopping would be a no-no! Lexus has been quite good at maintain a relatively good design development strategy where you can follow a one generation to others, unlike most Japanese car designs, even signature elements such as grills. Japan has great designers but the problem is that large corporations are filled with mediocre managers who think they should have a say in design than recruiting the correct design talent

Posted in: Honda to invest £200 mil in British factory See in context

Honda is struggling in Europe, expensive products, limited line-up, serious competition…..list goes on. However the real problem is the gutless mediocre designs. Traditionally been a tech driven automaker but should take a leaf from Mazda and Nissan on the design side

Posted in: Toyota: Both hands back on the wheel after recall spinout See in context

Toyota’s issue is not quality or efficiency because Japanese are great engineers! And it not a problem with the designers either which there are plenty of. it is simple case of management designing cars and as far as I know, the managers aren’t very good at their job as a manager anyway as they were put in there because they had the best university grades not management skills. The global; auto industry has doubled since the 80’s and part from US and Japanese manufactures, all others have benefited! Japanese car manufactures need to get in in to their thick heads that they need to sort out the mediocre design and let designers do the job

Yes all credit to Nissan with a good looking line-up, suppose it is the designers who are designing at Nissan (not the managers like at Honda and Toyota). I’m looking forward to the day that Nissan buys back its shares from Renault

Yamaha went to Nissan with their Sport car prototype originally and was rejected and the n Yamaha when to Toyota and build the GT2000, ( it was designed and build by Yamaha) then Nissan went ahead with the Z, not sure if Nissan saw what they had missed out with Yamaha or they had the Z in their pipeline prior to be approached by Yamaha, any way there are two of the greatest cars to come out of Japan!

Well let’s face it no one on earth is going to be behaving like a Japanese, certainly not the Chinese, who are loud, lacks manners and has no experience in queuing etc etc… however having the Chinese visiting japan is a great thing interms of cultural exchange that they get to see beyond the brainwashing propaganda they would get at home from the Chinese media

Well it is important to note that consumer products such as TV and domestic appliance provide brand awareness to general public all over the world. Let’s not forget that likes of Sony, Panasonic and Toshiba have managed to build a reputation for themselves on back of consumer electronics not industrial products which have led to and help build up a quality reputation for themselves as well as other Japanese brands
