But some kinds of shift occur in these last decades automobile market. People need cars as not only as vehicle but also part of lifestyle and dignity.

Automatic Transmissions Rule
2013 Pontiac GTO on the day of its first appearance as first generation muscle car broke down the asphalt with two-door body and low-key wheels. Automobile industry in 1960s was still controlled by big company like GM while Ford were still trying to build a coupe and Italians were too busy to compete each other. Muscle car came into market offering hard tops and convertibles that was considered as one of high class and street trendsetter. Not to mention wild-budget communities who adore exclusivity and some bold accents on the hood.
When competitors copied the idea of coupe class car, Pontiac made its own marks. By maintaining vertically stacked quad headlights and improving gear to 4-speed manual transmission, competitors started to think to go automatic. As market starts to spot female buyers, friendly user cars stand beside the muscle with totally different demand focus. You might also read 2013 Nissan Almera Changes.
