Wrrooom, wrrrom. A couple of years ago Volkswagen showed their Concept R (higher resolution pictures) at an autoshow. VW Vortex says that they are going to build it. And that it's going to be cheap. They are talking about competing with the Mazda Miata.
The Porsche 911 got nice round headlights again instead of the oval blobs and is just amazingly beautiful. I like the look of the VW until I see a picture of the 911. I can't imagine spending ~30 PowerBooks worth of money on a car though.
