  1. What in the ?????

    why do they do that the make cars that actually look kinda cool and they mess them up with a weak engine......
     
  2. Its all about consumers. What marekt/demographic is it aimed at? what will it cost? How many units will be produced? As an alternative to Lotus Elise, Honda NSX or other mid mount rear wheel drive cars, its a great option.
     
  3. Keep in mind that Peugeot does not sell cars in the US where there is cheap gas. In Europe, small, light, fuel efficient cars are popular because of the cost of gas. This car is perfect for that market because it is quick without guzzling gas.
     
  4. The second I saw it I thought it would be a good match up against the Opel Speedster. The 2000 has 147hp from a 2.2L I4 but accelerates from 0-60 in 5.5secs. It also weighs less than the RC tipping the scales at 800kg or 1764lbs. I wouldn't mind seeing that race.
     
  5. Just think of its compition in price range(should be around $20,000), the biggest compediter is the Eclipse. The RC would kill the Eclipse. Smart move by peugeot.
     
  6. They should put a electric motor in the front and not tell anyone so people dont get discoureged. Once you put the pedal to the ground the electric would turn off and go full engine. And where are the intakes. In front engine cars they get higher flow from the front grill thing. I dont see ant vents.<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. i agree with 87teg.Peugeot designed it for europe where insurance and gas prices are expensive(in spain atleast).That said this car would sell well in north america as well.Come to think of it the 206 and the italian designed 406 would sell like crazy in n.america.my cousin in spain has a 206 gti (or s16 if u like) and it flies.Anyways i hope they build it.Oh and 4 u guys complaining about the vents minor details can be worked out.Besides look at the countach it had so many freakn vents and the thing still overheated.<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. This car would be worth souping up. Imagine what you could do if you putted a nice twin turbo system. <!-- Signature -->
     
  9. Why would you twin turbo an Inline 4? Whatever, do what you want. I was thinking the 206 WRC engine would be a sweet motivator for this little thing.

Twin Turbo is better for Rotary, and anything with more than 4 Cylinders, and a V configuration (2 banks of cylinders, or 1 turbo for each bank). A Big Single Turbo would work much better on a 4.<!-- Signature -->

    Yes, I live in france, and there, about half the new cars have diesel engines cuz of the gas price.
    In Europe, One liter of gas cost something like 1 USD.
    In Europe you don't see many V8 or V12.
    Many mercedes S-class are S320 CDi, and the E-class are 220CDi and 270CDi.
    So this peugeot is good if it's target is the european market only.<!-- Signature -->
