I'd love one nonetheless!
Best case, yes. Track day car for those who can afford it and with good enough connections to secure one. While expensive to buy, it should be relatively inexpensive to run (much less than Cup, for example).

Worst case, put inside a bubble for the ages.

Oh yeah,Porsche? Well you can leave, Napoleon. Don't forget the country that kept you alive by buying up all your shi*tty boxsters and Cayennes.

Disgrace because the street car is 300 lbs lighter than this? Or just because it's not pretty

My wife and I met George Dyer at Canepa yesterday in front of his 934 1/2 or 935 test he drive in 1977. I have to say, new car wheel design replicates the wheel design on the old 935.

Took pictures but I can’t upload photos anymore.

Yeah, but they sure don't mind selling their cars in the USA and collecting those $$$ DOLLARS. Something tells me they don't care for the US too much other than selling cars.

I guess their new #1 market China must be their new BFF.

The side profile looks pretty weird...maybe it's functional - -but a million bucks? Rather spend elsewhere

I was at the reveal. I took that "we only care about Euros, we don't care about dollars" to be a joke, for what it's worth. As for the car itself, I think it's badass.

Here are some un-edited phone snaps:

Hilarious
- somebody has to pay for DieselGate, may as well be those Yanks - they have a stupid amount of money and will buy cars they never want to drive!

I can't see how a Cup run the same way ie not raced wouldn't be more or less the same cost to run if not cheaper.
