Not really... R8 sold 179 units in the first four months of 2019 vs. NSX at 102 units. Both are peanuts but the R8 isn't 10x and also benefits from Spyder and RWD variants.

Really cool render, but I haven't liked how the camo'd prototypes have looked and I'm not a big fan on this either. I dunno, it just doesn't resonate with me. Proportions are a little weird.

I'm with both of you. PDK is pretty awesome on a track, at least for a sub-advanced driver like me. But everywhere else, a manual is a lot more engaging and satisfying to me.

That kind of sucks... hope the owner doesn't dilute the brand too much, as the brand itself is "eccentricity" and "old-school."
