The Detroit News is reporting that we'll be seeing these on the street in a couple of years!

That car looks so similar to the Ferrari 360:


A good friend of mine had one of these in 2002 and I was amazed at how fast it was.  We were just talking about it the other night and how only 14 years later we both have SUV's that are even faster 0-60 than this car was.  It's amazing how much power they can wring out of engines now.

Yes it is!

Makes you wonder how much more power they can get out of an engine this size ;) ;) ;)

I saw this and it made me think of your post above:
