Indepth article on naming new car models, very good!

Touareg, is named after a tribe of north African nomads that, it turns out, traded slaves well into the 20th century. That can't be good for VW.

Twice in the last two years, Ford has named prototypes of new cars after ones from its storied history, only to find out it didn't own the names anymore. I bet someone gets fired over that.
