Test drive a Genesis G70 3.3T today. Felt like driving a bimmer. Good value compare to M3. Watch out BMW, a serious contender is rising up. BMW better treat the consumer well. Otherwise ...

Gordon Murray’s T43, but that still a pipe dream at this point.

If BMW wanted to treat their customers well they'd have stopped with the stupid RFT's a decade ago and put some money into making their EPS have any feel.

I assume he'd offer that with a manual too, unlike the A110 and 4C.

Probably the last NA V10 (perhaps V10 in general) we'll be able to order.
Decided to put my money where my mouth is. Just pulled the trigger on a 22' EVO order.

The situation is that I have never owned a car for so long, my financial situation has never been so good and at the same time I have never been so willing to buy a new car. But unfortunately, right now of all times, there is just hardly any car that appeals to me enough, which is pretty frustrating. The ranking list currently looks like this: 1st choice 992 4S, 2nd choice G80, otherwise there is basically no alternative I'm interested in.
I'm in the same boat. I need 4 seats and nothing exciting coming out to look forward except... another M3 (G80). There's a couple 2+2 cars out there but they are really impractical. Plus prices are moving up ($100k for a new M3.. what happened?). where are the performance bargains..?

Also there is really a lost focus on driving feel and passion, so much of these new cars have turbos with lack of engine sounds/feel, tons of gadgets to rob the experience from the driver. Automatic transmissions are the norm (laughable).

We need to roll back the clock 10 years and go back to the basics.

For all of you guys that mentioned the next gen M2, what do you guys think since the m240i was just revealed? I'm not impressed with the lighting design language.

Decent, except 3800+lbs. Thats outrageous for a small two seater.

Looking forward to checking out the new q4 etron, the i4, and maybe the Lyriq. Need to know pricing and option costs before I decide to switch or stick with the i3 a while longer.
