Yeah. Im really exited about the more CO2 friendly performance model!
This is the first time I have read anything about a release date/year. 2015 could be a very good year!
There have been rumors about a larger bore at 2.2l, with supercharger and electricity. That would give the car all the wanted throttle response with the much needed torque and more power. And also make it suitable for the future with lower emissions. But this rumor says no forced induction.
Either way im crossing my fingers for 100g Co2 (per km, if not better) and 250hp combined with "heaploads" of torque from 1500-7000rpm and a better soundtrack.

Could not care less for the cabriolet tough. That render looks good, but car just lost its balls when they cut the roof of it... But if I were into a cabriolet, that would probably be it!
