Episode 23 - i30 N pricing, Geneva preview, Ferrari Portofino and more

In this episode James, Richard and guest Stephen Corby wade through a bumper Musk Watch featuring satellites that spell (1:00), cars polluting Mars (3:20), people polluting Mars (3:50), SpaceX sending Audis to the moon (5:00), and Uber vs Elon (6:20).

Then Stephen tells us what it's like to drive a Ferrari Portofino in Italy (7:10), we preview next week's Geneva motor show (10:45) and cover the now-compulsory Takata airbag recall issued by the federal government (13:35).

Winton Motor Company's Frosty Chops is still up to no good, and still not coming into the studio (17:10), Bernie Ecclestone wants Formula 1 to go all-electric because he's an idiot (18:20), and Hyundai confirms pricing for its i30 N hot hatch (21:20).

Finally, James Dyson wants to build a range of cars that suck (because he's the vacuum guy. Geddit?) (24:45) and we recap what's been in the CarsGuide garage over the last week (26:35)

James Cleary, Richard Berry and Stephen Corby tear down, pressure test and rebuild the issues of the automotive week.
