@phil, maybe a two-engine strategy makes the most sense. Use a turbo four in base models, but offer a six in higher trim ones (like Hyundai does with the Genesis Coupe).

@themishmosh, I agree that the VQ is starting to show its age, but I'd have a hard time accepting a turbo-four Z. I say use a forced induction four in base models, but make a six available as an option.

@Lamar, I agree that a sub 3,000 pound Z is needed, and Nissan seems to be going in this direction. The interior could use a few improvements, but the center-dash three gauge cluster ties back to the original 240Z. I'd hate to see that go, personally.

@Ted, the best part of getting pranked is the payback. As the Spanish say, revenge is a dish best served cold.

@Lamar, it sounds like production of the M235i won't be limited, so dealers aren't as likely to gouge on pricing.

@Damien, Chrysler is taking this very seriously, but you raise a valid point - no matter what the actual capacity of a vehicle is, owners will load it until it's full. Overloading is a danger for all vehicles, but SUVs' high center of gravity make them especially dangerous when overloaded.

@Damien, at some point, horsepower is just a number. If you can't get it to the ground, 1,000 hp isn't any quicker than 700 hp.

@Dom, I was under the impression that the German police frowned on excessive speed. You're not likely to be stopped for driving 300 km/h, but if you're involved in an accident at high speed, expect to be ticketed.

I've had the opportunity to drive unrestricted stretches of the Autobahn on several occasions, and wish motorists in other countries took driving as seriously as the Germans.
