    That's the new Gen 4. Go back and find an old one.

    You can get a nice used example in the mid 20s to low 30s. None of them have very many miles on them.

    It most certainly meets the true definition of a CON-cept car!

    "None of them have very many miles on them."

    I'm sure there is a reason for that. All these concepts & things like the Ariel are just expensive toys, overly expensive.

    $75K is pocket change for some people. An relatively inexpensive affordable runabout that Suzuki is capable of building would be nice.

    Yep, people with that kind of money tend to be like that. They'll keep searching for an external solution to fill a missing need and will never find it. As William S Burroughs so eloquently said "How long does it take a man learn that he cannot, must not, WANT what he WANTS?"

    I think it was Schopenhauer who said that first, LAB.
