Well, there's a solution.

It's called Mazda MX-5.

(Except for the EPS)

Speaking of which, I realized why the X5 M is called the X5 M.

If they named it otherwise, it'd be called the BMW MX5. Which makes no sense at all.

The more the time passes, the more I believe this will be a bargain a few years down the line.

Wait, which will be a bargain?

The whole Maserati selling a berzillion units hasn't worked so well, has it? Fiat and Chrysler still seem to be in a mess; largely left chugging along on fat Jeep profits. This will reek of hubris in years to come.

I was thinking of the Giulia.

Maseratis are too exclusive and expensive to become a bargain. The Giulia on the other hand hits the sweet sport for a brilliant car languishing in the showrooms.

Welcome amazing discounts to sell them, then.

I know... instead of addressing the latest concerns regarding the delay of the launch of key products... I'm going to hint at the preposterous idea of Alfa Romeo returning to F1. Brilliant strategy!

Well to their credit, it's very Italian to be bad with money, so that's not really their fault...

Having difficulties turning a profit is also a very Italian thing to do as well.

Seems like they're in fine company, and they've had multiple precedents!

What a shame. At least it was interesting, if slow.

That's a shame and really shitty way of doing business.

On a lighter note, I've found a load of old IMSA GT races on YouTube. The races are not-quite-interesting enough to be continuously-watchable, but they do make good background noise for reading Mulsanne's Corner or W's fantastic articles on Group C/GTP cars.

:-) In their defence they are not the only ones.



I know of plenty of organizations who say this but have yet to work for one that means it.
