When looking at the qualities of a major company’s CEO, having consistent and confident ideas about the future is a good start. Fiat Chrysler and Ferrari CEO Sergio Marchionne doesn’t have that.

Do you want a powerful Rosso Corsa electric Ferrari driving you to your job on Wall Street while you read a book, listen to Chopin and laugh at middle-class peasants out your window?
