This means this platform will be used in this, the next 300, the next Charger, the next Challenger, maybe the next Thema is Lancia isn't killed off first.. and that sci-fi thing they call the E-Segment Alfa Romeo saloon.
The Autoblog Podcast's Speculation misled me. Where did you glean this? Have you started reading the dirty Euro rags again, or is this all digital info from commieland?

Yeah. At least it's not older than Methuselah.

I somewhat sort of fancy a Thema a bit. Unfortunately, I don't think it fits in my parking space...
You best watch your mouth concerning dem' Voyagers, son.

I want to give you all of the rep, as well as the highest Misho ratio possible. Look it up.

I know what you say may be hyperbolae, but I don't think so. I believe the plurality of Porsches sold are Cayennes. I am not sure if the diesel outsells the gas.

Far more popular is the Dodgiat.

It's strange indeed. Marketing and costs dictate it. It makes me angry as well. However the Voyager makes me even angrier... I don't understand why anyone buys it.

People cannot discern correct what they want, as it turns out.

Porsche diesel is wrong, Jaguar diesel is wronger, Maserati diesel is wrongest.
The Dodge Dart turns my head every time I see it. Along with the ATS. And the Volt. And the Tesla S. and the Karma. The latter two I see regularly, but far less than the preceding three.

As for your wrong, wronger, wrongest list, meh. It's a different time. You can not buy the diesel, which is the most crucial of all. Also, you don't see a 911 or F-Type with an oilburner, so the universe's qi is maintained.
