2012 Automotive News Europe Eurostars

First | Previous | 12 of 14 | Next  | Last

The 2012 Eurostars distinguished themselves through their ability to beat expectations and by their willingness to take risks to make their companies better. Under CEO Carlos Ghosn in 2011, Renault set a new record for global vehicle sales and Nissan achieved an all-time high for European sales. Porsche CEO Matthias Mueller guided the sports car brand to new records for vehicle sales and operating profit last year. The other 12 Eurostars have reached equally impressive results. Automotive News Europe, PwC and Siemens honored the winners at an awards dinner on Sept. 26 in Paris.

Few designers have been involved in as many car projects as Lorenzo Ramaciotti. The Fiat-Chrysler design chief estimates that during his 39-year career he has been part of about 300 car designs.
At 64, Ramaciotti shows no signs of slowing down. His longevity, creativity and curiosity make him the first winner of the Automotive News Europe Eurostar for lifetime achievement.
