The official line I heard in a UK mag was that VW will compete, model for
model, with Mercedes-Benz. Audi is set, according to this plan, to do the
same with BMW- more S models should be forthcoming. Speaking of, that S8
is in a class of one- anyone hear of US export plans or lack thereof? My
father has begun to look askance at his Saab 9k Aero after seeing his
first A8...
