Porsche's new eco-car.......

well, at least it offers:

"The car's performance envelope opens from the bottom, too. With the active exhaust system turned off (muting the mighty tailpipes) and the car's fuel-saving stop-start system engaged, the Carrera S is notably servile around town. The naturally aspirated, direct-injection 3.8-liter flat six mutters quietly, awaiting its chance. The suspension compliance is velvety, the throttle response relaxed. Porsche's product planners would like the new 911 to appeal to more women. Just call me Nancy."

I just don't think that many women will be willing to fork out that much money for most any car!

They only need 10 or 20 more to make a good-sized spike in their sales.
