    They won't be going anywhere. It is just part of their world domination plan to kill foreigners. Considering they're part owned by the government (like pretty much all big Japanese firms) they've got plenty of financial security.

    Maybe they can file chapter 11 and start out on a fresh, clean slate.

    The sports cars are definitely why they became as big as they are.

    so your anecdotal experience of a cluster of, what, 5 women is indicative of the majority of people out there?

    Ugh. Finally, good riddance. They're miserable cars for people with no creativity who drive in the left lane doing 70. Boring, bland appliances for people who value reliability and nothing else. Hopefully Citroen or Alfa or one of the other European companies will fill the void so I can get a C5.

    Audi killed a bunch of people in the 70s. They're still around.

    single vehicle vs. nearly the whole lineup is quite a difference.

    No, American stupidity killed those people. The brake and accelerator in 70's-80s Audis were so close together that some people hit the accelerator when they wanted to brake. Note that this didn't occur in Europe, only the US.
