    Not so fast, the Ex-pat tax is too high.
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    That does have a nice ring to it. . .

    I don't understand why they would limit production. Build as many as you can sell especially a company that is hurting for money. Also, why not make the track versions available in the US too.

    When Porsche was ready to release the original 911 just over 50 years ago, it was going to be called the 901. But that infringed Peugeot's trademark of naming its cars with a three-digit number, with the middle digit always being 0. 504, 305, 208, etc. etc. etc. I think Lotus would have the same trademark problem if it tried to call a car the 9-11.

    2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

    Would this be superior to a Porsche GT3 Cup car?
