I don't think open minds are the issue here - everyone knows there are great
cars being built right now, and everyone knows what they are: M5s, RX8s,
996s, etc....we're enthusiasts! You can feel you're done and movin' on, and
that's great - go build something fun, but there are those of us who will
continue to get a kick out of running fast in something that's just doesn't
look fast. There are many forms of JNR - not all are the searing
hot-ohmygodwe'regonnadie unadulterated speed JNR, this is more of the
whatsupwidat why is this happening JNR. I don't need to have little kids
point at my car and gawk. I like it when things are not as they appear. MP
is user-friendly performance in a stealthy package, the Avant even better.
It's weird, it's geeky, and it's stupid, but I think it's cool. I don't
look down my nose at ricers and kids who slam their cars any stick sewer
pipes out the back - I think that's its own kind of cool too, but I don't
want to do it. And when I want to go really scary-fast I jump in my shifter
If you get any closer to the mainstream you're gonna have to lose that
"Q-ship" moniker - it ain't a Q-ship if everyone expects it to go like hell.
