  1. This is great, but they need to shut up and put up already. The Tanoak is probably a little risky for the market. This would be free enough from competition it would own it's niche segment. But they have to be quick about it! VW has a HUGE problem with not striking while the iron is hot. If good ideas aren't capitalized on soon enough, they don't stay good ideas.
  2. Oh, this thing will definitely be a smash hit. I think it looks great, and I'm thrilled to see they did a traditional, upright 2-box design.
  3. I don't remember the size being the topic of conversation. I recall it being the design language and body style, which I was advocating for something like this.
  4. The real problem ist hat this engine needs to be in a car that is 6-8 shorter in length, and inch narrower, and weighs 200-250lbs less a Mustang. THAT I would be more than okay with having this engine.
  5. I mean, I don't hate it, but I still have no desire to have a Mustang powered by anything other than a V8.
  6. Yeah, I'm sure people were beating Acura dealer doors down for a hand built 50K TLX. Just offer the stupid Pkg on an A-Spec and be done with it.
  7. Funny, I seem to remember pegging this vehicle long ago for exactly what it is shaping up to be. And @Drew Dowdell either dismissed it, or thought it was a bad idea. Something along those lines. Looks like I have been vindicated!
  8. Not as ignorant and arrogant that you think you know more on this subject in regards to automobiles and a given market segment than I do. You know, since I am actually in the car business and all, and you write articles. Yeah, I wasn't even going to touch the absurdity that is the rest of his argument. Comparing cars in general to watches or home values.
  9. I was just in a new 101K Navigator recently, and I can tell you right now, even at that trim level, they are not an equal to Mercedes interior finishes, materials, fitment, tactility, and quality. That said, I do like the the new Lincoln SUV's quite a lot, especially the Aviator.
  10. Badge snobs will be badge snobs, but badge snobs don't buy hatchbacks. This sedan might do ok, just because it's 'conventional'.
  11. I'll stop short of saying ZERO. I personally sold a C7 Z06 to someone who had 2 previous Ferraris. He was done with them. Done with poor service, done with poor reliability, and done with their outrageous costs. In fact, in a lot of ways, i think Ferrari owners are the the stereotypical Corvette owners of the supercar realm. They buy them to conclude to themselves and show others they've made it, they hardly ever drive them, and they are oftentimes little more than petulant fanboys.
  12. Looks great. These things are just fantastic vehicles. If i had to pick a big SUV to travel cross country in with a family and cargo in tow, it'd be a GLS all the way. I love the clean, subtle design here. Mercedes is doing some damn impressive things these days.
  13. Actually, in this segment- hot hatches/sport compacts- I think you'd be surprised how many won't.
  14. Yes, I think the lines and proportions are going to end up looking strange.
