Nissan will be asking more than 10,000 employees to leave



Nissan might be asking more than 10,000 employees to leave. This comes after the company projects its profit to fall further for 2019.


As reported by Kyodo News, sources from the company told the new agency that the news of the job cuts will come when it releases its April-June earnings figures as nett profits hit a nine-year low going into March.


Jobs which will be cut are expected to mostly come from factories in regions with low utilisation rates and through early retirement options. Nissan only planned to axe around 4,800 employees back in May but the numbers has grown by quite a bit since then. If the numbers turn out true, he move will see the company reducing its overall global workforce by around 7%


The report also suggested that it may also streamline output in its domestic market as Nissan saw its global vehicle sales fall 4.4% to 5.52 million units in fiscal 2018. The company reckons things will be worse as sales is projected to be nearly halved for the 2019 financial year.

TOKYO -- Nissan was embroiled in another scandal over executive pay on Thursday after CEO Hiroto Saikawa admitted to being overpaid in violation of internal procedures under a scheme designed by ousted Chairman Carlos Ghosn, a source said.

The improper payments, including tens of millions of yen Saikawa received through a stock appreciation rights (SAR) scheme, were disclosed on Wednesday at a meeting of Nissan's audit committee, said the source who declined to be identified because the information is not public.


Cut the staff and top management get over paid.

Now all claim they didn't know they were overpaid.


I blame Najib - now his excuse he got millions extra in his bank account and he didn't know it shouldn't be there is copied by so many people.

    BMW Alpina B5: Comfortable Cruiser

    Who says performance cars need to come with a sporty ride? Last week we tested the BMW Alpina B5 to see if Alpina's take on the performance saloon is a viable alternative to the BMW M5. So what sets this Alpina apart? Firstly, the interior has received a host of luxurious touches to set it apart from the regular 5-series: The digital dashboard in the B5 has its own Alpina-specific design and colour scheme, for example, while the handcrafted Alpina steering wheel is made of Lavalina leather (the same leather used in Rolls-Royce cars), and features blue/green stitching. But what truly sets this car apart from the rest of the performance saloon pack is what is underneath you: With a suspension designed to deliver comfort and refinement in spades, the Alpina is not just comfortable, but sublimely comfortable. Adding to the comfortable cruise is the fact that the B5 is joyously easy-going to drive, with the lightest of pressure on the accelerator sending the car wafting rapidly down the road. With the abundance of humps and rumble strips on our local roads, would Alpina's take on the performance saloon, with its effortless and classy character, be a better suit for your everyday commute?

    New Toyota Celica or MR2 likely to happen

    Toyota says it wants to build another sports car to join the upcoming fifth-generation Supra and the 86 in its lineup.   A new Celica or MR2 could fit the bill, according to a Wednesday report from Road and Track.   The public confirmation of Toyota's desire to build a third sports car comes after years of speculation the MR2 was gearing up for a fourth generation. The company also continues to protect the "Celica" name; most recently, it renewed its trademark filing in March 2017.   Masayuki Kai, Assistant Chief Engineer on the Supra project, told R&T the Supra was the biggest name to bring back to reinvigorate the company's performance credentials, but MR2 and Celica are also important.   "We want to have Celica back, we want to have the MR2 back. Now that we've brought Supra back, what will come next depends on the market needs," he said.   Kai suggested if Toyota moves forward with a new Celica, it could return as an all-wheel-drive sports car to balance out Toyota's rear-wheel-drive offerings. Both the lightweight 86 and high-performance Supra send their power to the rear wheels.   Another mid-engine MR2 is also possible with the right business case, Kai told the magazine.   He also reiterated that partnerships will likely be the only way Toyota brings new sports cars to market. Toyota joined forces with BMW to bring the Supra back to market and he noted BMW probably couldn't have made a new Z4 without the Japanese automaker's commitment. He said sports cars are becoming more expensive to develop since many of their components can't be shared with volume models and they require specific tooling.     Photo courtesy of our late and great freelance blogger "FaezClutchless"

    The ZamZam Restaurant along North Bridge Road & the one in Kuala Lumpur

    One iconic landmark around Arab Street/North Bridge road aside from the Sultan Mosque is Singapore ZamZam Restaurant and its neighbour Victory Restaurant. Both Indian Muslim restaurants serve affordable cooked food like the roti prata, fried noodles, biryani rice and the murtabak. It is the last item that both restaurants are actually famous for, the Singapore styled murtabak. This is slightly different from the regular type of murtabak which usually has its ingredients (of egg, onions and minced beef) on the outside of the prata-type dough instead of being wrapped within it. Anyway, the ZamZam Restaurant has actually spread its wings outside of Singapore, with an outlet in downtown Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.     If you're ever been to ZamZam or Victory Restaurant along North Bridge Road you'd find people driving up in their cars and stopping right in front of the restaurant to order the murtabak. You don't even have to get out of your cars and the waiters from both restaurants will take your order. Usually it takes less than five minutes for the take away order to be ready as the restaurants are basically cooking the murtabak non-stop. This is quite a motoring experience that most take for granted as its like a McDonald's drive through window, but it's not. Its something closer to home and more traditional in nature.       And so if you drove down to Kuala Lumpur and headed to Tunku Abdul Rahman Road (Jalan TAR in short) you will also see a ZamZam Restaurant (located close to the famed Coliseum Cafe along the same road
