That doesnt really cover over-revving. A motor will pop after less than a second if it is over-revved in excess of 1k rpm; 100rpms is much more forgiving. The excess of the rpms is more determinative...

Engine + chassis + builder = more subaru than any other maker. You are wrong to say they make virtually nothing when they build the key components that are the motor and frame.

But the 458 looks like it could be released this year. Most of the exotics that have been released in the past decade have yet to feel the punishment of time on their designs - we will wait.

You mean 4 years? :iono:

If you want to see well aged cars look at the rx7, mr2, supra, or nsx. We are about a decade and a half away from telling if it is looks good "after all these years."

Brands are in the selling business, when sales are down business is not doing what it is supposed to. Tell saturn, hummer, and pontiac not to be scared of sales.

One of the greatest brands in the world did not need a value marque to be hip. This has been a long time coming along. Good riddance, IMO, like saturn, it was never a brand to be proud of.

Nothing has been more speculative than the pricing; Fiat isnt crazy but even you admitted a $40k 1.7l at 2300lbs is crazy. It seems like whatever they will build is going to be a fun ride.
