      Someone on this page has been drinking the Kool-Aid, but the S5 is an attractive car. There's something about the proportions and hips that give it almost a muscle car look.

      It's hard to...

      Subsidiary companies or even divisions can title their heads whatever they want, even if they have a parent or umbrella company over them.

      Looks like there's no Saturday/Sunday overnight mod shift.

      No, I wouldn't volunteer to cover it either.

      The Infiniti Beluga is still uglier, though the new grille isn't helping the Lexus' case.

      Just ahead of their time. Now more and more fwd cars have 16v turbocharged engines, and they may be catching up on the safety built in Saab's seats :p

      Porsche definitely knows what they're doing, wow.

      Did all 918 sell out? I recall that being the production number as well as the model designation.

      Yeah, they're all having to deal with the same governmental and market forces that are driving them in a certain direction.

      Turbocharging and smaller displacement and/or smaller cylinder counts...

      The Hellcat is a $60k car, and that's the one people are stampeding over each other to get to the dealer. The SRT 392 has the 6.4 naturally aspirated V8 (~470hp), retails around $46k, and will be...

      Confused by this. Did you mean Thunderbird maybe?

      Mustang outsold the entire Lincoln brand from when the last generation came out in 2005 through 2007, and again in 2012. YTD 2014, Lincoln's...

      It definitely has a lot going for it. It's not a DCT, but the ZF 8 speed is not your father's automatic either. They've promised 25mpg highway (maybe 16 or 17 city? old 5AT gets 14) which is...

      Look, ClothSeats called someone else a troll.

      CUVs have officially surpassed sedans in sales now (or so someone said in some thread... I haven't fact-checked because I'm not ACN). The role of the...

      That's certainly a possibility. There's something about the breakfast market though that's enticing these chains as growth areas though, and McDonald's perceived success has something to do with...

      You do get much better deals at breakfast or diner type places, but morning drive-through lines at McDonalds are pretty busy depending on where you live.

      It's more a 'is there anything else I'm forgetting?' shooting-the-**** type conversation. I don't see anything indicating the OP doesn't have a clue about cars.

      This is what we all do on TCL,...

      Also, the 2012+ Audi S5 fits the bill. It has the supercharged V6 instead of the older S5's n/a V8, so the MPG is more DDable. DCT-equipped.

      That kind of budget usually lowers the difficulty a fair bit.

      What were your opinions on the manual vs the auto? R/T, 392, Hellcat, whichever.

      I only know him from The Car Show, which I liked and wish had been more of a success, though admittedly TGUSA has justifiably eclipsed it.
