Yep, more than enough shove for anyone. But if they are going to do a coupe, they need to work the rear end a bit so it doesn't look quite so much like an M4.

I say it needs to be more of a fastback, 116 GTV style. Or maybe a higher squared off backside like the SZ and 916 GTV.

Thank you, but it needs a longer tray.  :) The "real world" yardstick for me is fitting a full size bath (in its crating) in the back and closing the tailgate.

Itís not just car makers who are having trouble working out WTH they are actually doing. I see Coca-Cola are apparently going to make their product better by changing the formula. Anyone else remember that fiasco?
