  1. Re: Made in america?

    Peugeot is French, however GM has a stack in the company...
    making it sort of American in a way.
    However, thats saying Jaguar is American.
    So, regardless it's French people
    and by far not Italian.
    Yes there are street versions of it.
    But it's a Rally Car. This means it has a lot of modifications.
    American version was the Ford Escort Rally car.
    and of course we know there were street versions of the escort.
    Regardless this is one of the best Rally Cars out there, winning a lot of competitions.
    300 hp out of a 4, i must say is pretty cool.<!-- Signature -->

    Setting the record straight:
    Peugot's are made in france, not italy.. which has already been established fairly well.
    America does not import these in mass amounts, however, you can buy one in france or australia or wherever and have it imported to the US if you set it up.. which is fairly expensive. American car companies don't like the idea that they do not have a monopoly on the car market in the US so to make up for the tariffs that they lose when private people import cars, they tax the hell out of them. I'm sure you can also find these cars in canada, which is probably a whole lot easier than finding a barge with an empty crate on it....<!-- Signature -->
     
  5. Re: Made in america?

    Sorry, but there's no Peugots here in Canada. Unless you want an old POS from the 80's. I'm sure I could hook you up with that. They stopped bringing them here at the same time as the US.

    Generally if they stop selling a certain brand of car in the USA they will also stop selling them in Canada. Peugots are not available here. They do however, have a limited number of models that are available for sale in Mexico.

    You made a confusion with FIAT.

    Peugeot is owned by PSA group (40%) , and PSA Group is owned by the Peugeot family.<!-- Signature -->

    If you want to import these beauties to the land of plenty, then you probably need to crash test them (more on www.dot.gov ) since the "show car" rule is for cars
    no longer in production unless youŽre the manufacturer. Personally I think the Peugeot 206 convertable could sell in the US, but the price
    tag would be high....

  11. Re: Made in america?

    ItŽs possible that there is a plant in Chile because itŽs much cheaper. But Peugeot Rally Cars are designed in Europe <!-- Signature -->
     
  12. Re: Made in america?

    Because of something called "price".

    Do you know the Fucking 406 Coupe ??? I bet you do not.
     
  13. Re: Made in america?

    FYI, there are two new pug models: the 307cc and the 206GTi (a.k.a 180 and RC).

    The cars possibly most attractive to Americans are the 807, 607, 406 and GTi(s).
     
  14. Re: Made in america?

    and wat is special about the 406 coupe
     
  15. Re: Made in america?

    It's not just "price". Skoda is cheaper. A peugeot is much more of a car than most supercars (not ultra-luxury cars). Most people would prefer design (interior as well), handling, comfort, space, joy of drive, security, reliability, features, ergonomics, quite engine and good gas mileage over a top speed of 400kmh. A car is not a air-conditioner. Its "goodness" is not measured by its specifications and price.

    Indeed, the development cost of the VW Golf or pug 307 is probably greater than the entire worth of Nissan "skyline".

    "Why import a &@#&#% peugeot when you can import a mig-17?!!"

  17. Re: Made in america?

    One of the most beautiful coupe on the market, very pure design.
     
  18. Re: Made in america?

    well considering it was designed as a baby ferrari 360 and you cant deny that (same designer)i actually prefer the saloon but cmon even if it is good looking the engine is crap.

    No, they are FRENCH (i.e. made in France). My god, and YOU'RE a supporting member of this site. Tell me YOU'RE kidding.


    And even though Peugeot does not make cars for America, they can still be imported, and they have an excellent program for getting a rally racing career started, if you're interested check out: www.peugeot.co.uk/motorsport the Peugeot 206 Super Cup and the program supporting it is actually how Richard Burns started his career.

    I like it. I wish they made in in north america.
