    Aston Martin Update & the Valkyrie breaks down at Goodwood

    Just posted up a new blog on recent changes in the Aston Martin BoD and the ongoing saga of the Valkyrie which has now broken down twice at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

    Comments ?  Thoughts on the Valkyrie?  


    Re: Aston Martin Update & the Valkyrie breaks down at Goodwood

    Very good explanation of what's going on, your blogs provide great insight into how things are unfolding. One would hope that, given the caliber of the newly appointed board members, they'll be able to find solutions to their current challenges. Probably expensive solutions, but solutions nonetheless. Thanks for keeping the updates coming. I've always been inexplicable attracted to the Aston brand, so I'm rooting for their success.

    very good view which I share - however, instead of just focusing on crunching numbers I would ask loyal customers what they would buy and give them Mercedes reliability combined with unique design and high exclusivity. I am not seeing great interest in the DBX or Vantage here in CH. I hope they succeed but there is no product with a Wow factor to me.

    I think you just nailed it, Aston's problem is nothing in there line up makes you go "wow".  Its all just "nice"

    You may well be right in your interpretation, but Felisa would have been a great appointment in the scenario where the company was doing well. As for the AMG bean counter.....angry

    Felisa is an engineer by training, that's were a lot of Aston's problems lie.  My guess is he would get it sorted out. 

    Stroll must be paying him a fortune to take that BoD seat though.


    Re: Aston Martin Update & the Valkyrie breaks down at Goodwood

    Not sure how much day-to-day influence an independent BoD member brings to the company.  That's where he is needed the most, not discussing if, as witnessed by the other two BoD appointees, Aston Martin is a luxury goods manufacturer or automaker.  With the other two appointees, Stroll is playing it safe by returning to a market he has the most familiarity.
