The number of cars is only one parameter in the function of operating margin per car. Performance cars make much more money per car sold than mainstream cars, so not as many need to be sold....

The GX replacement needs a 3rd row. The RX does not, just like the Q5 & GLE do not.

Not sure why Jalopnik thinks the RX competes against an Acura and a Honda.

Not to mention that the same money today buys a car that would run circles around those from 1995, and $30k can get something that's quite close. So, the increase in price is necessary to offer...

Depends on what you mean. When you say "technology" do you mean software? Or do you mean technologies such as D4S, active torque vectoring, rear wheel steering, etc, that are mechanical in nature?

I think the issue is calling it a GS F is a black eye for the F brand. It should have been an GS500 F Sport, like the CTS V-Sport uses the ATS-V's engine, so would the GS500 F Sport use the RC-F's...

I have A/S3 on my S4... in Houston. Cold weather here means a cold front came through and dropped a lot of rain, so when it's cold it's nearly always wet, which is not an ideal situation for summer...

I would expect a lot of leases for a car like this, many more than the IS-F. Shouldn't be too difficult to pick up one lightly used if you keep your eyes open.
