      This. Had it happen to me for construction, car was just moved to a side street with a note explaining on it. No biggie.

      Good point but it's not like they didn't know these regulations were coming when they were designing the Evora - they just chose to ignore them. Short sighted IMO.

      And so the soap opera continues . . .

      Seriously, I don't understand why they can't just source this stuff from Toyota like they do their engines. The way I look at it is if you can't comply with...

      Fabio is a huge car and bike enthusiast So it's not as far fetched as people think but I digress.

      This car is amazing, loved the days of Honda tuning.

      I'd pay the poster full ask for that...

      It's a halo car and is needed for Cadillac to be a serious luxury player.

      If they price it right, they'll be fine. Hopefully they'll learn from the CTS . . .

      Some companies may transition others may not. Just look at Dinan. Also, the F10 M5 and F30/F80 ECU's have yet to be cracked. Piggyback is the only way at the moment to tune these cars. I hope...

      Absolutely. This whole thread is speculation. But I bet we're in the ballpark on rough numbers.

      The problem with your math is that the $3m is NOT profit. Yes, it is profit on the reflash, ie revenue - COGS (including R&D in your example) but it is not corporate profit. Corporate profit is...

      CAR gave the diesel Trail Hawk a rather positive review - they even thought the interior was well constructed. Apparently, it has as much suspension travel as the Cherokee.

      Overall, I love this...

      Seriously where's the special edition 991 Turbo with tartan seats? I'm blown away there isn't one. This is Porsche we're talking about after all . . .

      Zonda was sold a while ago, and he made a tidy profit on it - though factoring in running costs and upgrades he made, probably not so much.

      He now works at Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations so...

      Easter egg war between Abrams and Snyder (Batman vs. Superman).

      Also, does anyone else get ridiculously excited when they hear Star Wars music and see new shots of the Falcon in a video? I sure...

      Sure, you're numbers may be more accurate but I don't think they're quite that high. I haven't owned a VW in over a decade so have no idea how big the market still is for all of this stuff.

      It's almost always better to sell it as a whole than part it out.

      Still how much revenue are we really talking about here? At $500 per tune, you'd have to sell 10,000 tunes a year to get to $5m...

      Agree. In Toronto base Cayennes are everywhere. Most people use these things as urban family shuttles, also they want to pay as little as possible for the Porsche badge snobbery.

      I can't wait to see the new Disco. We have an LR3 and the car has been terrific. My wife wants to keep it indefinitely as she loves the boxy styling and the cavernous interior. I hope they don't...
