the Bugatti at US$1.2M will do 253 mph and I heard that the Swedish Konnigsegg CCX which is a REAL bargain at about $700K is a bit faster....somebody on here should buy one of each and give us a definative answer!!LOL
Shooting Coach- Can you get us some better details on that elec. car. Website maybe? People don't relize the power of electric cars. Even the GM EV1 would blow the doors off of a Mazda miata and the Nissan 300ZX from 0-80. The reason being is they have max torq. as soon as you hit the pedal vs. a gas engine that needs to be rev'd into the power curve.
VW is NOT owned by Porshe, nor the other way around. They simply have a business relationship in the production of their Toureg/Cayenne only as far as the body is concern. Porsche still makes their own engines and tranys.
Porche is increasing thier ownership stake in VW. They will possibly have controlling interest in VW.....FYI...Porche is the most profitable auto maker on the planet based on profit margin per vehicle.
