and by timely, i mean from 26 years ago.
remember what it's all about fellas!
what price glory?
Let's have a guess, how about mid-engine cars on the US market today? (prices USD):
Lamborghini Gallardo $165,000
Ferrari 360 Modena $160,000
Ford GT $140,000
Acura NSX $89,000
Lotus Elise $43,000
Toyota MR2 Spyder $26,000
So what does that say about where a "New X1/9" would fit in?
My opinion would be, BEAT THE MR2 in performance AND price and we'd have a winner!!
