I'm Proud to say we have a history of manufacturing truely random technology! granted it may not always be at a profit(3l/phaeton/veyron/L1 etc), but its hard to argue that we're not pushing the boudaries!

oh we also have the e-tron, Up and E-Up due by '13
Cool. If the L1 happens I will applaud it. They can take a strategic loss in the name of Eco-advertising and technology-migration.
