Help me remember the name of this movie about a new breed of carmaker who was shut down by the Big Three

Someone told me about a movie that tells the story of someone who starts making really different and cool cars. He starts a small company with the intention of selling them on a small scale. However, the "Big 3" learn about his company and set out to shut him down. I can't for the life of me remember what the name of that movie is. Does anyone know?

Tucker! The man and his dream.

Francis Ford Coppola's Tucker: The Man and his Dream.

(How odd! I was just thinking about it yesterday.)

You guys, let's all make a pact to start a Tucker club. We'll all come here at 5:31 PM next year, and shout things in unison.

As long as I don't have to wear a fedora, I'm down with that.

Let's do our valiant, all-American best to start the club - only to be foiled by the ruthless, better-equipped Godfather, Godfather II, and Apocalypse Now fans.

Why wouldn't you include Godfather 3 fans in there?

To fit in with the "Big Three" theme. (Besides, I know more Finian's Rainbow fans than Godfather 3 lovers.)

Because Godfather 3 wasn't Francis---it was his daughter.
