The Trump administration announced the will shelve auto tariffs for up to six months. Yahoo Finance's Julie Hyman, Adam Shapiro, Rick Newman, Scott Gamm and Ann Berry - Cornell Capital Managing Director discuss.
The bits and bobs we saw revealed on the Toyota Supra TRD Performance Line Concept are ready for primetime. TRD put them on display on Facebook last week, and at least one Japanese dealer showed the handiwork on a show-floor Supra. The good news is that they look just as good as they did on the concept, made from carbon fiber reinforced plastic and given a lustrous coating over a perfect weave pattern.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp on Friday criticized U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to declare some auto sector imports a national security threat, saying it sends a message to the Japanese ...
Trump earlier Friday agreed with the conclusions of his Commerce Department, which investigated imports of vehicles and auto parts and found they harm national security by having led to a declining market share for “American-owned” carmakers since the 1980s. The White House set a 180-day deadline for negotiating deals with Japan, the European Union and other major auto exporters.
Trump issued a new directive Friday giving Japan and the European Union six months to renegotiate their trade deals with the U.S. Trump issued a new directive Friday giving Japan and the European Union six months to renegotiate their trade deals with the U.S. so that the "American automobile industry, its workforce, and American innovation" are protected.

If you like Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) stock or the shares of other American-automotive icons like General Motors (NYSE:GM) or Fiat Chrysler (NYSE:FCAU), you should avoid buying them anyway. In fact, I urge you to do so. I'm going to unleash hell on Ford stock, and American cars in general. If you get emotional, that's your responsibility.Source: Barbara Eckstein via FlickrLet's talk about why F stock has garnered significant interest lately. Since the start of this year, Ford stock has gained 32%, which is remarkable. * 6 Chinese Stocks That Could Pop On a Trade Deal But auto sales have flatlined for the last four years. Additionally, ride-share services like Uber (NYSE:UBER) and Lyft (NASDAQ:LYFT) have transformed personal transportation.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIt also doesn't help that millennials just don't care for buying cars as previous generations did when they were young. Millennials are growing up at a time when multiple, private transportation options exist. However, it's also true that young Americans are comparatively financially strapped.If they're going to buy a car, they need a reliable one. That hurts Ford because it's not the most reliable automaker. That leads me to the first of my many unpleasant points: American Cars Stink, and So Will Ford StockI just have to say it: American cars are terrible. Over the past several years, Detroit has promised it would compete effectively against the Japanese and Germans. I still remember Chrysler's "Imported from Detroit" tagline. It was a clever, catchy piece of marketing genius.Unfortunately, it was also pure nonsense. Part of the appeal of owning an American car is that, well, it's American. Back in my high school days, our principal said that it's important to buy American cars to support our economy. But it's equally critical for domestic manufacturers to compete overseas.I'm sure my principal's sentiment was repeated across the nation. The fact that people have to resort to patriotism to tout American automakers , though, indicates that American cars can't compete on quality, reliability or attributes. Americans Reject Their Own CarsF stock and American cars in general are emblematic of this great nation's many problems. They appeal to folks on a superficial basis, but are very weak when it comes to fundamentals.Look at the politicians who supposedly "serve" their constituents. How many of them personally drive American cars when the cameras aren't looking? Probably very few.Exhibit A is President Donald J. Trump. As a tall, rich, (arguably) good-looking white man with a sharp tongue, he obviously appeals to the patriotic crowd. Today, he "drives" an American car because he has to.But when he was just "The Donald," he didn't seem to care too much for domestic rides. Remember that episode of The Apprentice when he showed up in an exotic Mercedes-Benz sports car? How quickly we forget that, at one point, Trump's most-prized automotive possessions were a Rolls-Royce and a Lamborghini Diablo!Why, then, should I buy an American car when my own President doesn't even exclusively buy American cars? Hard Numbers Condemn F StockIf you got through all that without cursing, congratulations! You probably dismissed my arguments against Ford stock as subjective reasoning. But now, we're going to get into the numbers.Honestly, they just don't look good for F stock. The last time its quarterly revenue hit a peak was in June 2007. At that time, sales slightly exceeded $44.2 billion. Since then, the automaker has failed to equal that haul, despite our supposedly robust economic recovery.Compare the malaise of Ford Motor Company stock to its fierce rival, Toyota (NYSE:TM). From an automotive perspective, I'm not a big fan of TM, either. I find their cars intractably boring. But as a business and an investment, it's doing pretty well, despite the shortcomings of its products.Toyota's quarterly revenue peaked in March 2012, with a haul of just under $72 billion.Its top line has been declining ever since. The difference, though, is that TM is climbing back. Toyotas have broad appeal in Japan, the U.S., and Latin America. With its Lexus luxury brand, it's also capturing some snobby Europeans.Ford is doing what it does best: give up. With that kind of loser's mentality, I just can't trust Ford stock for the long haul. Even a Tailwind for Ford Motor Company Stock Is Dying!Don't think that I'm completely biased against Ford stock. The one area where it excels is big, heavy trucks. In that area, Detroit is currently untouchable.Sadly, though, this market is fading. Sales of heavyweight trucks last peaked in 2006, shortly before the housing and banking crises.I'm not sure if the segment will ever regain its prior peak. The entire automotive landscape is changing. What hurts Ford stock, though, is that its Japanese and German rivals have adapted to the changes. Detroit hasn't, which is why I don't trust the rally of Ford stock at any price.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Two hours west of London, at an abandoned Royal Air Force base, a major electric car initiative has begun… by none other than Dyson.Most of you know Dyson for its vacuums, hand dryers and fans. But I, for one, have been waiting for its electric vehicle (EV) for years -- ever since it made a key acquisition that I'll get to in a moment.Then in November, we found out that Dyson will build an auto plant in Singapore. All in all, Dyson is looking to invest $2.7 billion in EVs. Now, at the old Hullavington airfield, the company will research and test its EV prototypes right at home in the UK.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWhile the EV field is currently dominated by the usual players -- the United States, Germany, Japan, and now China -- Britain is looking to get in on the action as well. In fact, it wants to go 100% electric: The UK is considering a moratorium on new cars with gas or diesel engines. (Norway already made that call, and France, Germany, India, and China are mulling it over, too.)2040 is the most likely date for Britain to go all-electric, while 2035 is a possibility, and 2030 is what Sir James Dyson is pushing. * 10 Retirement Stocks That Won't Wilt in a Bear Market Dyson's electric car sounds just as sleek and high-tech as you'd expect. And it plans to deliver it as soon as 2021. While the model is still in development, Dyson's initial patent images (like the one above) show: * An SUV-crossover design, with three rows of seating * Lower-than-normal seating, for better aerodynamics * Narrower/taller wheels… both of which would boost its driving range.Range is crucial to any EV maker -- and especially one that also aspires to make its flagship products (the fancy vacuum cleaners) powered 100% by battery.In 2015, Dyson acquired a Michigan startup that was working on next-generation batteries. They've since parted ways, but nonetheless, we've known since 2017 that Dyson is eager to get in on the new technology.For a vacuum cleaner, strong battery power that allows for cordless design is a nice convenience. For an electric car, a strong battery is a must. You can afford to finish vacuuming later, but you can't afford to be stuck on the side of the road -- and you can't afford to spend all day charging the thing either.Lithium-ion batteries have been the standard since the 1980s, believe it or not, when Sony started putting them in its camcorders. After they made it into Apple's iPhone in 2007, the rest was history. But the next generation of batteries will solve two major problems:* Lithium-ion batteries rely on materials like cobalt… which is mined from conflict zones (mainly in the Democratic Republic of Congo) that are struggling to keep up with demand.* And the liquid inside is not only toxic - but also flammable. In 2016, the battery in Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 was exploding. You couldn't bring the phone on a flight. And smoking, flaming, or exploding batteries have caused a few hundred other incidents in airplanes, too. In just five years (from 2012 to 2017), 49 batteries were recalled in products ranging from laptops to power tools.No company wants that. And the current leaders in automotives are dedicating serious cash to solving the problem.BMW (OTCMKTS:BMWYY) is shopping around for a supplier of next-generation batteries for its electric car, the i3. Others, like Volkswagen (OTCMKTS:VWAGY), are looking to develop their own. Rumor has it that Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) is, too, after it acquired a battery startup in February.All of this revolves around one specific technology that's safer AND more powerful. Some call it the "Jesus Battery" because, compared to the old lithium-ion technology, this battery is nothing short of miraculous. The Key to Cashing In on the Battery RevolutionAs an investor, there's one thing I particularly like to see when I buy into a tech trend: patents.Dyson doesn't just have the smooth-talking billionaire CEO you see in its TV commercials. It has a number of impressive patents across its business. The electric SUV-crossover is just the latest -- and surely not the last.And when it comes to the "Jesus Battery," one tiny company in southeast England holds some key patents.Automakers like Toyota Motor (NYSE:TM) are relying on this company for its electric car models. Yet the company is totally off the radar - for now.So, you'll want to check this out before everyone else starts rushing in. I've got a full presentation on the investment opportunity in this "Jesus Battery," which you can view for free by clicking here.Insiders are already calling this potential new battery a "paradigm shift" in energy technology. Forbes calls it simply: "The battery that could change the world."This breakthrough device could change how you get around… how you communicate with others… even the way you think about the world.Folks who get in on this breakthrough now, BEFORE it's rolled out on a mass scale, will have the chance to be a part of perhaps the single largest wealth-creation event in the last 25 years.I can share with you what I've learned and show you how to profit.

It probably comes as no surprise that manual transmissions are on uncertain ground these days. A good example is the new Toyota Supra, which only comes as automatic.

Owning Nio (NYSE:NIO) stock has not been easy on investors. Getting into NIO is a speculative, challenging thesis. But as they say, no guts no glory -- what is hard now may become great reward later.Source: Shutterstock Fundamentally this is a startup company so for now value is not its forte. It sell at 6.6 times sales which is three times more expensive than Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA).In March, NIO stock collapsed soon after it appeared in a special report on 60 Minutes. That sparked an influx of Main Street investors who piled into the stock only to set it up for the perfect failure that followed. So in early April, I wrote about the opportunity to trade it but only if it took out $5.75 per share, which it never did. So is it now the better time trade it it. Yes, but the answer is more complicated than that.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe TV show caused the stock to spike in March to $10, only to deflate and fall back to the breakout level and below. So NIO now sits 55% lower than in the glow of the 60 Minute exuberance and more than 70% below its all-time highs.Clearly this is a broken stock for now. But the verdict about the company also being broken won't come for long while. * 6 Trade War Stocks With a Lot of Risk So investing in it cannot be time sensitive -- the success of it will need time to unfold. Electric vehicles are gaining momentum but are still far from ubiquity and are way behind the internal combustion engines. This is a complicated process, as it requires establishing the support infrastructure even with the great headway there so far.Tesla did most of the heavy lifting so that Companies like NIO and even the giant manufacturers like General Motors (NYSE:GM), Ford (NYSE:F) and even Volkswagen can simply walk through the door that Elon opened. Be Patient in NIO StockPatience is a virtue for Nio investors and they probably are shocked to see new all time lows with it trading below its initial day of public life. But that is the price we pay when we bet on speculation. I don't mean that it's punishment, these are the ups and downs that go hand in hand with betting on the next new thing: e-cars.Last year, NIO probably stole bids from TSLA when headlines broke out about the Saudi Arabia Fund being interested in NIO. This was the direct result of the infamous Elon Musk tweet of funding secured.Clearly Nio stock had its moments, as it came out of the gate like a race horse. But it quickly faded, and within a month it had broken below $6 per share. It did put in great efforts to regain momentum, but the breakout from $8 per share failed in December. This perhaps was bad timing, as the whole stock market was in a sharp correction at the time.Nevertheless, NIO fell back into prior support. The TV bit gave it another shot in the arm to try for the breakout, and this one went farther. Unfortunately for the bulls, investors hated the March earnings report. The stock fell off a cliff, and here it is sitting on new all time lows.Technically, there is little to discern from the chart with regards to support since this is literally off the charts. But going long here can be justified for two groups.First, investors who believe in the global adoption of the e-car movement. They buy NIO here and assume that it will be one of the winners for the very long term. Or second, traders who are looking to profit shorter term from a miraculous bounce to prior levels. These tactical trades are tricky since there are few downside clues. They can easily turn a trade into an investment without proper management.Assuming the stock will start rising again, there will be resistance at $4.40, $4.55, $4.70. There are many other resistance line above those but it's only fair to let the bulls prove themselves capable of recovering the $5 line first before looking at higher levels for now.In summary, Nio has the opportunity to be a winner of the electric car movement for the long term. But this thesis will require patience and intestinal fortitude to see red before green -- pun intended. As for the tactical trade, there are better tickers for that.Nicolas Chahine is the managing director of SellSpreads.com.

Toyota Motor Corp. (TM) released its fourth-quarter and full-year 2018 numbers on May 8. Unfortunately, the number of Americans delinquent on auto payments over 90 days is on the rise. Toyota has a fortress-like balance sheet with a huge portfolio of cross-holdings.
The U.S. government is withdrawing a proposal to require all passenger vehicles to have safety systems to prevent unintended acceleration. It was proposed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2012 after a series of unintended acceleration problems with Toyota vehicles. The agency says all 2018 passenger vehicles have systems that override the throttle if a driver presses the gas and brakes at the same time, and it doesn't expect any automakers to remove the brake-throttle override system in the future.
The Toyota Supra is back. Nostalgia fuels our love for the last-generation car more than its sports car bona fides. Its price was outrageous for its time, and the resulting glacial sales actually killed off the once-booming Supra franchise (it sold a tenth of what its predecessor did).
The Trump administration said Monday it will drop rules first proposed in 2012 that would have required automakers to install brake-throttle override systems to prevent runaway vehicles. The regulation was proposed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in response to a series of unintended sudden acceleration incidents in Toyota Motor Corp vehicles. The proposal was aimed at ensuring the driver could halt a vehicle by applying the brakes if a throttle pedal was trapped by a floor mat, shoe or other obstruction.
It took 11 more years, and five sequels to the Fast and the Furious franchise, before Toyota began seriously considering bringing the model back to America.

Global automotive supplier Bosch expects platinum to play only a minor role in its new fuel cells, giving precious metal markets scant benefit even as the technology gains momentum for pollution-free transport. According to Reuters calculations, Bosch would only need a tenth of the platinum used in current fuel cell vehicles. Hopes of reviving demand and prices of platinum increasingly hinges on widespread uptake of fuel cells in vehicles, ships and trains to make up for dwindling amounts used in each device, analysts say.
Vehicles sales in China, the world's largest auto market, fell 14.6% in April from the same month a year earlier, the country's biggest auto industry association said on Monday, marking the 10th consecutive month of decline. Sales fell to 1.98 million vehicles, said the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM). Automakers have been lowering prices in China after the government introduced tax cuts to spur consumer spending.
As part of the various spec packs, features lists and releases we received when attending the 2020 Toyota GR Supra press launch, Toyota included a rather in-depth history of the Supra, from the first A40 generation through the legendary, most recent A80. The second-gen Celica, designed by Toyota's Calty Research Design studio in California, continued the momentum (of the first Celica compact sport coupe introduced for 1971). Its responsive four-cylinder engine struck an admirable balance between performance and efficiency, though Toyota saw more potential.
