At Detroit Auto Show, Reality Intrudes on the Fantasy

Historically, auto shows have provided fantasies about speed (as in fast cars) and size (as in huge trucks). That was the case with the first day of the North American International Show. Speed highlights included a 700-horsepower Mustang and the return of Toyota Motor Corp.’s Supra sports car. For size, FCA US unveiled the newest version of its Ram Heavy Duty pickup.

However, reality has a way of intruding on the fantasy.
