I want Lotus to succeed, but bragging about having 250 USA Evora 400 orders is a joke. Porsche sells more Cayman models every month in the US, not even mentioning the 911 which sells 3-4x the Cayman....

Yep. And we're talking about the producer.

Also, be aware that at the federal level, judicial precedent allows franchisors to set minimum price levels for franchisees. State law can presumably...

That's not right - a minimum price restriction set by a producer of goods is not considered price fixing.

I don't know about that - it's not like IS F sales were great either. To be honest, Lexus doesn't sell enough of these in the first place to make depreciation an issue. Just as it never was an issue...

Exactly, it's expected as a social norm. MSRPs are absurdly high because negotiation is expected. Then dealers build in even more unwanted options that provide negligible value to the end consumer so...

Glad you took over #32, and hope you enjoy driving the heck out of it. I personally put nearly 100 miles on it at Infineon.

Not to rain on the parade, but I'm not really sure 16% increase in sales is that impressive when luxury sales were up 12% industry-wide. And still a lot of work to do to catch up with the European...

No doubt the CT6 was well into development by de Nysschen's arrival, but the decision to introduce solely a stopgap, halfway-in-between, we're-really-not-sure-what-this-is model still lies with him....

I think it's more accurate to say that there are 4-5 million people who are just waiting for the trio's new show on amazon. It's not like there aren't alternatives and that people who aren't watching...

Just to clarify - CAFE numbers are fleetwide by parent company/manufacturer, not brand. So Ferrari currently doesn't have any independent CAFE data because they were part of FCA until the beginning...

Porsche dealers will negotiate, even on cars ordered to spec. Just check any of our neighbor Porsche forums.

Agreed 100%. All the BBC is doing at this point is tarnishing the brand.

I'm losing hope, but I still want this show to have a good run - we don't need another canceled auto show.

It won its class at Le Mans. Still impressive, but it was the first year for the competitor 488 GTE entries too (the 2nd place in LMGTE Pro was a 488, only one minute behind). And with all the...

This is not a new car, it's just a performance edition. The AMG GT line was introduced in 2014. So it's already been in the headlines for a couple of years.

I also don't get the comments on...

Just wanted to thank b2designs for the brake pads - responded to my initial inquiry within minutes and had my tracking number the same day.

The brake pads are great. There is no squealing at all,...

Wear and tear on anything other than the tire shouldn't be an issue, but grip will probably be reduced - meaning longer braking distance and less stability in cornering. Whether that makes the tires...

Great to see these still being thrown around the track at Fuji. Looks like Kinosh-ta driving.

Surprised at the Audi residual, thought they were usually in the 40's. And would have expected something closer to 60% for the CT.

Since OP is leasing with no intention to buy, the residual will play a big factor too. And I can't imagine the residual on an A3 e-tron is going to be anywhere near the CT, so that's going to have a...
