    Del Sols are in the same category as the New Beetle. Only for homos and women.

Whats cool is that it'll still blend in with everyday cars, but it'll smoke 95% of whats out there. Makes you wonder what mercedes is gonna do with the next E55, or if audi is gonna pump out a new RS6.
    Yeah, he really surprised me when I saw his first designs and I just didn't care for them at all. It always looks like the trunk isn't meant to fit on the car. Just a weird design style.

    Official link please.

    That's an awesome car.. and the new alfa 156( called 159) will have that front and powerfull engines (v6-for you americans) -- i know its not much, but here the gas its very expensive.


    That concept will be release at the end of this year, but no scissor doors

    Well, you don't exactly have to have a top of the line engine in order to have a fun car to drive. Most people forget that good driving is about handling and braking just as much as it's about acceleration.

    Exactly. I saw a guy in a red SVT Focus fucking drifting around a corner and then went as fast as shit down the road (he was going 100+). That car can fucking move and handles corners quite nicely.

    Well I get it back tomorrow.
    They said they adjusted the shift linkage and want me to drive it 500 miles.
    sounds like they want to take the cheap way out
    After 500 miles if it even feels a little off I'm taking that shit back and telling them to suck my taint.

    I remember Business Week said that Saab could go away too (I really doubt they'll go though).

    Not until they bring back a retro style Firebird, they won't!

    PS: This is a sweet looking ride.



    Too bad they want a boatload of cash for it to cover the parts and restoration. They did more to it than I would ever really need.

    Doesn't look bad, but I still like this year's better, and the yrs before.
    The M6 (the ones posted by lets gekiga in) are fugly.

    Yeah, like I said previously I wouldn't be getting the M5 or M6 for the looks.

    But the performance on those cars are just amazing. 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds.

    The V10, 7-speed sequential, paddle shifters, and launch control are what makes the M5 and M6 worthy buys.

    That's the problem, I want something nice, that perfoms good. Not something
    that perfoms good, but looks like a boat.

    I think I would take the Honda Accord Hybrid because having 255 hp and the gas mileage of a Civic must be nice.

    I think the Lexus RX400h is headed in the right direction as well. But yeah, why would I want an egg shaped Prius? :P

    The design is horrible, and the car overall is pathetic - I recommend people not to drive that car, ever.

    Didn't the older Prius actually look a heck of a lot better than the new one? Toyota should quit doing that "OMG IT LOOKZ FUTURISTIC!" shit to that car and just make a Corolla Hybrid as well as a Camry Hybrid.

    i like the escape. not because it's especially powerful or fast. but because i know a guy who has a ford escape. and i always loved how the car felt and looked interior wise. it was luxurious, and small, and pretty sweet for a little SUV. and honestly it was really spacious inside. i liked sitting in there because there was plenty of room to goof off with.
    cool dude

    it is pretty damn roomy in there, and quite cool. my buddy got the leather seats and black interior and stuff. and it is pretty darn comfy in there. i know the car isn't very powerful or fast. but it's comfortable as all get out.
    cool dude

    Yeah, I heard Ford has been doing a better job on their interior as of late. My dad needs something that can tow and he's been thinking about an F-150.
