An interesting fact about Peugeot...

So I was being bored and doing some reading and I just thought you guys might find this funny.

Peugeot has rights to any car names that include a three digit number with a zero in the middle. Obscure I know.

Point being, it affected Porsche to rename their 1963 car, the 911, from 901 to 911.

And now you know...

Re: An interesting fact about Peugeot...

fuckin hell, it's right in the wiki:

"Peugeot chooses the names used on its models in the form x0y or x00y, where x describes the size of the car (and hence its class) and y describes the model number (the higher the number, the newer the model). "

so 300, 500, dont fit the mutherfuckin rhyme scheme. kapiche?

"All numbers from 101 to 909 have been deposited as trademarks."

"For specific niche models such as minivans or SUVs, Peugeot is now using a four digit system, with a double zero in the middle. It was tested with the 4002 concept car. The 1007 used this system when it was launched in 2005, and the new Peugeot Crossover SUV is named 4007."
