It's clearly a Dodge Charger Widebody, a vehicle that we've been anxiously awaiting ever since it was revealed in prototype form by Mark Trostle, head of design for Dodge and SRT, at Spring Fest 14. Actually, we've been seeing hints of the wide Charger far longer than that – it was spotted testing on public roads before its officialish debut, and even prior to that, the car's rumored existence had the Internet rumbling with the force of a 700-plus-horsepower supercharged Hemi V8 for months. All that preamble brings us back to the present and the aforementioned Instagram post, in which this upcoming production Widebody was spotted presumably filming for an official television commercial debut.
Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) is all but assured to report a loss Wednesday when it releases its first-quarter results. Unless Elon Musk can pull a rabbit out of his hat, TSLA stock could look expensive in the wake of the resultsSource: Mike Lau via Flickr (Modified)InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsNow don't get me wrong, I would love to see Musk deliver the unexpected, since I'm a longtime fan of both TSLA and Musk. However, given the fact that the company has a $920 million bond payment due during the quarter and Musk's already said that it would lose money in Q1, only super-positive guidance for the remainder of the year will keep TSLA stock from losing another $20-$30 in the wake of the results. * 7 Healthy Dividend Stocks to Buy for Extra Stability Right now, the big concern for the owners of TSLA stock is cash flow, a subject that previously became less pressing due to the profits the company reported for Q3 and Q4 of last year. After TSLA reports a Q1 loss, those shorting TSLA stock will be back with a vengeance. A New Cash Crunch for Tesla StockTSLA finished 2018 with free cash flow of -$2.9 million, a significant improvement from the -$3.5 billion it generated in 2016. After the company's two consecutive quarters in the black, optimism grew that Tesla had put its cash crunch behind it. No such luck.I doubt whether things will get anywhere near as bad for TSLA stock as they were in 2017, but the bond payment will take a bite out of the $3.7 billion in cash it had on its balance sheet at the end of December. So, too, will the capital expenditures required to build its Shanghai factory. With Tesla committed to spending $2.5 billion in 2019, about $180 million higher than 2018, but well below the $4.1 billion it spent in 2017, it's unlikely that its China Gigafactory will be built this year. But there is some positive news for TSLA stock. Fiat Chrysler's PayoffIn early April, Fiat Chrysler (NYSE:FCAU) announced that it would partner with Tesla to lower FCAU's average emissions output in Europe so it can meet stringent EU regulations set to take effect in 2021. The Financial Times suggests that TSLA will make "hundreds of millions of euros" from the deal because Fiat Chrysler can't afford any more settlements like the $800 million it agreed to pay the Department of Justice for its use of software to fudge its emissions numbers. That got me thinking.FCAU's late CEO, Sergio Marchionne, always wanted Fiat Chrysler to merge with one of the more prominent car companies like General Motors (NYSE:GM). Now others are reportedly considering merging with FCAU. Current Fiat CEO Mike Manley doesn't have a problem with an automotive marriage, but any deal will have to be good to win FCAU's approval because it's got more than enough financial might to remain independent. FCAU, which is in the process of selling its components business for $7 billion, finished 2018 with 3.8 billion euros in net cash on its balance sheet and 4.6 billion euros in free cash flow. On the surface, it might not seem to make a lot of sense for FCAU to buy a company burning through cash as quickly as TSLA is. However, since Fiat Chrysler's behind in the electric-car game, TSLA stock is cheap and about to get cheaper, and FCAU already has to rely on Tesla to pass the EU emissions test, why wouldn't FCAU solve its electric-vehicle problem now as opposed to waiting until 2021 and beyond?The biggest impediment to the deal is that both companies have a very large shareholder -- Tesla 's Musk and Fiat Chrysler's Agnelli family -- so any agreement would have to be blessed by both of them. "The Agnelli family's history with Fiat goes all the way back to the founding of the company. They are very leery about giving up control, which makes joint-ventures where they are not the lead difficult to imagine," Sam Fiorani, vice president of global vehicle forecasting for AutoForecast Solutions said recently. I'm sure Elon Musk would be equally reluctant to merge, lowering the chances of my suggestion becoming reality. The Bottom Line on TSLA StockI will continue to sing the praises of TSLA until I feel it's no longer innovating. That, thankfully, has yet to happen. Next week, when Tesla announces its weak earnings, remember that the company is a success story 14 years in the making. It's not that easy to kill Tesla. If you're long TSLA stock, I'd buy a little more on weakness following the Q1 results. At the time of this writing Will Ashworth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

said Friday it's recalling more than a quarter million vehicles in the U.S. and thousands more in Canada, Mexico and elsewhere for repair because of a potential shifting defect that could cause cars to roll away. The recall applies to 2013-2016 Dodge Dart sedans with automatic transmissions. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling the estimated 298,439 cars in the U.S. to replace the vehicles' shift-cable bushings.
Chrysler's versatile front-wheel-drive K Platform saved the company from certain doom during the early 1980s, then spawned so many derivatives — including the vehicle that started the minivan revolution — that we can't keep track of all of them. One of the original K-cars was the affordably luxurious 1982 Chrysler LeBaron, which evolved into a snazzy convertible later in the decade. The LeBaron disappeared after 1995, replaced by the Sebring and the Cirrus, and I'm seeing fewer and fewer of these cars during my wrecking-yard explorations.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV said Friday it is recalling more than 320,000 Dodge Dart compact cars in North America that could roll away because of a defective part that could allow the shift cable to detach from the transmission. The Italian-American automaker said the recall covers 2013 through 2016 model year automatic transmission Dart cars and that the defect could prevent drivers from shifting vehicles into park. Fiat Chrysler will replace the transmission side shifter cable bushing, the company said.
Fiat Chrysler is recalling more than 300,000 vehicles in North America because a transmission problem could cause them to roll away unexpectedly. The company says a bushing can fail, causing the shifter cable to come loose from the transmission. Fiat Chrysler says it doesn't know of any related crashes or injuries.

Fiat Chrysler CEO Mike Manley said last year that it was a mistake to pair Maserati with Alfa Romeo because it suggested Maserati was a mass-market brand. The Ghibli, Quattroporte, and GranTurismo Convertible will be on hand, but focus rests on the Levante SUV for the New York Auto Show. One of One ushers Maserati buyers into the same realm of possibilities that BMW's Individual or Porsche Exclusiv does for those German brands, the standard over the gateway reading, "Anything is Possible." Up to now, the GranTurismo - the carmaker's second-oldest offering - has offered the greatest range of customization.
