Those car sketches were done by Stilldown, and can be viewed in its full glory over here.

Lampshade Hanging that Julietta Hase is basically Bettina Timmy with a different color scheme, and Hase Automobiles basically Timmy's ToyCo for cars - check!
And Horizon Dynamic Systems used to be mocked as "Mad Science, Inc" before Madeleine took over the helm, a further biographical parallel Bettina is pointing out here.

March Hare, Jule Hare - yep, Julietta's nickname is a bad Alice in Wonderland pun!
("Hase" means "hare" in German)

It should be noted that Bettina probably already knows most of the Hase-related trivia herself, she just lets Lorelei recite that for the sake of exposition so that she can ponder on it better.

gonna guess that unlike Bettina, Julietta Hase didn't assassinate her predecessor

Gotta wonder what Tesla and SpaceX would be like without an aging Y chromosome at the helm

The March Hare most probably died of old age in his bed.
But who knows if a pillow somehow pressing too tightly against his mouth and nose accelerated the process a bit.

The "Hase --> Tesla" analogy is an obvious thought - but "HDS --> SpaceX"? Ha, that one didn't occur to me yet!

Ah yes, seen it!
(Nice idea with the rocket overlapping the star in the logo - and Madeleine herself turned out very fine too of course!)

Brace yourself, for this chapter will contain a few more AB cameos besides just Madeline!
(Oh, and one Grinder$ cameo - you've seen the picture of Anya I posted in the Think Tank...)
