Roger Penske made a good choice, and will succeed! I personally
view him as an ICON in the automotive world.

Long overdue in the US. I only hope they do not make a bigger and less efficient engine for Americans as economy is something that some of us want. I have two 21st Century cars but I drive a 3 cylinder 13 year old Geo most often as it gets the best mileage.

It's sad that to meet the US standards they have to make the fortwo larger and heavier, then compensate by putting a more powerful engine in it. 7" longer is what they are saying and 1640 lbs.
I only hope that they stick to a price point of about $15k so that the people that *need* a small, afordable, highly effecient car can actually afford them.
The US has enough overpriced toys for the rich folks to buy. The average working person needs affordable, reliable, fuel efficient transportation. The best that's currently offered for the US only gets about 35 mpg.
I exclude hybrids and modern diesels because of their high costs. Perhaps in '08 or '09 VW will bring in a diesel Lupo or the diesel version of the fortwo will be allowed to be sold in the US?
