Update: Hyundai has joined Gaywheels' list of gay-friendly automakers. Technically speaking, Hyundai has offered protections to LGBT employees for several years. The company even earned a score of 75 on the HRC's 2015 Corporate Equality Index, and last year, it scored 95. However, it only added LGBT protections this year.
All gone: Ferrari's new $2.2-million supercar has already sold out, according to NBC News. Ferrari unveiled the convertible version of its LaFerrari at the Paris Motor Show on Sept. 29. It's got all the wonders of the LaFerrariincluding a hybrid 950 horsepower V-12 engine that's derived from the company's Formula One cars.
Moving on: Toyota has confirmed that up to 70 percent of its Torrance, California-based staff will make the move to Plano, Texas, according to Gaywheels. The good news for Toyota's LGBT employees is, some things have changed in Texas. Obergefell v. Hodges was decided in 2015, meaning that LGBT couples who move to Texas can enjoy marriage benefits at both the state and federal level. Also, Plano has passed LGBT anti-discrimination laws.
The name game: Tesla Motors' Autopilot technology has caused some headaches for the company, Wired.com reported. Consumer Reports called on Tesla to recall the feature, calling it "too much autonomy, too soon." A Florida man died in a crash while using Autopilot. And now, German transport minister Alexander Dobrindt asked Tesla to ditch the term "Autopilot," arguing it can lead consumers to think the car is far more capable than it is.
