    So what's new? VW, Audi and Porsche have always been together. It's just a matter of what % is owned by what.

    nothing new, nothing will change. The cars already share the same platforms with some suvs and cars.

    again nothing new.

    Yeah I did a search earlier and there are articles from '06 and Porsche was/did buy up some of VW and offered some amount for Audi. Its a big ol incest circle over there.

    Based on what?

    What about Audi?

    So many people are quick to jump on liking or dislike a car with out even sitting in one let alone driving one.

    Just a (semi-related) comment: The look of the Golf is what the Civic should have evolved into:

    No, we have to gradually make everything bigger, so we can introduce new models that are small to fill the gaps!

    Love to see another car touch that interior.

    Anywho, every picture I just posted is of a car that is owned X many % by VW everyone of those cars shares one thing or another with a VW/Audi product.

    Over to the benz side of things

    Gotta post a BMW

    There's not a lot from Japan design wise IMO that can touch them, and don't get me started on American cars.

    This is the newest hot item from the US that's going after the German cars.

    That ass end is almost up to par with a crossfire.

    I think maybe it's going after the new TL

    [​IMG]

    As far as American cars goes the new Camaro isn't bad looking and no doubt the vette and viper are very nice looking cars, after that.... G8 looked great but is already dead, lets see.... that's about it.

    Moving onto honda, lets see, S2000 GONE, um hmmm yeah hondas off my "looks list.

    Infinti G37 isn't bad looking but it's nothing great. 370Z might have hope once the aftarmarket hits, 350Z GONE looked good but in stock from its too plain.

    STI/EVO = boy ricer, good cars but looks wise, no way does it come close to an RS4/335XI

    clearly price is not beign factored into this, just straight up looks/proformance

    So what is your style? current production cars only please. Or are you one of those guys that unless it's an older boxy honda CRX or civic then it doesn't count?

    CTS-V coupe needs to be a liftback.

    I don't like how so many cars are gaining so much sheetmetal in the quarterpanel area. Might as well start selling advertising space.

    ive posted this sooo many times its getting old...
    i hate the new hondas..nothing newer than 2000 for me..i like evo's but not the new style ones.sti's but again not the new style ones..i am not a big fan of luxury cars..i dont like vw because i think they are junk..and other german cars are just retarded overpriced to fix..thats just my OPINION..
    ive never been about luxury..i would rather drive something with no airbags.no power stearing.no ac..i hate luxury shit
