Chinese Lexus Knockoff Deserves A Torrent Of PraiseS

Give the Chinese automakers some credit, at least they're starting to mix the sources of their latest designs. In this case we have the Faster SUV from truck maker Huanghai, which starts out as a Pontiac Torrent and then slowly fades into a Lexus RX. To confuse matters even more, the Faster is powered by a Mitsubishi 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. So that's Lexus, Mitsubishi and Pontiac. If only there were an authority figure around.

Clearly, the lady cops are guarding this vehicle until someone with an understanding of Chinese creative properties litigation arrives. According to The Tycho, this vehicle will come with all the amenities "from DVD-screens to electric chairs," so there will be a way to dispatch of anyone criticizing the vehicle for its heavy influences.
