Newly posted to Charlie Rose‘s website is the below video of his recently televised conversation about car design with automotive design gurus Joel Piaskowski of Hyundai, Franz “Zoom Zoom” von Holzhausen of Mazda, Edward T. Welburn, Jr. of General Motors, and Phil Patton of The New York Times. Fewer than 30 seconds elapse before someone mentions Harley Earl. We warn you that you may come away from this video craving a Pontiac Solstice, but you’ll also hear about what makes a great car designer, what cars have in common with clipper ships, and why everyone still dreams of having a Ferrari in the garage. “You will note that this [conversation] happened a few months ago,” cautions Rose rather cryptically when introducing the segment. “Because I still had the black eye.”
