I've got to go Brian going Stephen A though...
Audi has their RS5 with the tri-turbo electric diesel, the VW GTD, diesel SQ5, etc. BMW has a bi-turbo diesel X5 M Performance model, and cant build enough i8s. Tesla's got their "insane" mode, and there are the hyper hybrids. Companies are doing exactly what you're looking for, whether they're consolidated or not.

Cant promise that I'll remember to post it but, based on a response in this thread:
Your first car - what was it? and why was it the greatest 1st car ever?

I've seen a few in person at the Dream Cruise (they set up off Old Woodward in a parking lot right near the Chevy tents) and they did a nice job.

The Miata has 155hp from a NA 2.0L. Which engine will FCA give it? None of their small 4 bangers are set up to go longitudinal yet. Will it be the 1.6L Abarth motor? The 170hp/160ft-lbs could be enough to differentiate it from the miata. If they wedge the 4C motor in it's going to be VERY de-tuned... We'll see.
|14 hours 50 min ago||Interesting idea||
I can't really think of a brand.. but I think that a few could work. Pontiac could be a nice counter to Dodge, as a performance brand, but it'd have to actually be performance oriented. Would they just cannibalize Camaro sales?
Lots of mid-lux brands died for good reason. Oldsmobile & Mercury weren't any different than the Chevys and Fords. I think GM's got a good split right now actually with their 4 brands. Ford is doing OK, and Chrysler has lots to figure out.
I'll go with a model - how about Ford builds the Bronco again? The Wrangler needs competition
|14 hours 58 min ago||Right?||
It's not like fuel economy is a huge concern, and higher than its ever been. Or that the biggest 3 supercars to debut all have hybrid systems that will trickle down. Or that one of the largest automakers in the world (VW) has the XL1. Or that Porsche has more plug-in-hybrids than anyone. Or that emissions are so low that we can't measure them well anymore...
I mean, obviously all car manufacturers don't care about this stuff, right?

|15 hours 6 min ago||Alfa's coming back||
They currently only offer the 4C in the US (a 2 seat sportscar), but they have big plans. New sedans, RWD only, etc. It'll be interesting to see if there's room for them in the US. With Maserati moving slightly downmarket, if Alfa is to become essentially a BMW competitor, it'll be interesting to see how they move the cars.
Also, there was going to be a new Alfa Spider based on the new (amazing) Mazda Miata, but FCA determined that it wasn't quite enough. So the FCA model is being badged as an Abarth roadster.

that was my thumb on the main page with the wedding invite. pics if harbaugh shows.
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||Meh||
Dude's got to report what his sources give him, and he's got to pump the tires of his employer's biggest money maker.
I'm sure personally Schefter is happy that Harbaugh is in AA, but professionally he had to spin the story he was given and the story ESPN wanted on the airwaves

Hines Ward was a HS QB, college RB and turned into a very productive receiver in Pittsburgh. Hope it works out for Devin!

Beat me, as I can't embed from work and had to type it out.
EDIT: additional possible proposal - Coaches can't call TO during live play (assuming players can)
That SHOULD mean a more fluid game. I agree that cutting off a finger and/or reducing the number of media timeouts would be even better... but it's a start!

And it's awesome that (just like script Ohio) it's something OSU took from us/Bo. That said, I like the clean helmets without them... but I'm just a fan.

I had a few "actual" athletic acheivements, including being told I had a better post game than any 5'11" slow white guy deserves (at 28 I have perfected old-man hoops). My favorite story is probably when I was pitching as a 12 year old. Before pitch counts and what-not I was in the local baseball league and in games I only ever threw fastballs - I had a decent 4 seamer for the league. On the side I worked on 3 other pitches - I had an OK change that I through rarely in games, a splitfinger that was perfect 50% and would hit a batter in the head 50% (so I didn't throw it in games yet) and a knuckleball. I stopped playing baseball at about 13, but damn if this knuckleball wasn't great. I mean, no spin, it would dance etc.
Anyway, my dad was always trying to get me to throw a k-ball during a game, and I finally agreed that if I ever had 2 outs, no one on, 0-2 count I'd throw one. Well, this happens and I know that I can strike the kid out with a fastball - like I said, local league. Well our parents were in the stands on the 3rd base side and when I come set (I only threw from the stretch) I look right at my dad, who knows the count and bursts out laughing. Well, I threw the best damn knuckleball a 12 year old has ever thrown. It danced, it went right across the plate, and everyone went silent. The ump goes "Umm.... ball one??". I get super red in the face and embarrased, strike the kid out and walk back to the dugout with my head low - but the other team's 3rd base coach stops me to say that was the best pitch he'd ever seen.
I haven't thrown off a mound in probably 15 years, nor do I know if I can throw a knuckleball 60-65 feet anymore, but I can still make it dance pretty well.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Well...||
Harbaugh was the QB here for a few years, but less time than Cutler has been. He followed McMahon, and was pretty good. Look at the recent history post-harbaugh though:

Im a Bears fan. And as such, I do NOT get why bears fans dislike Jay Cutler. Do they/we remember who USED to QB the bears? It's like your buddy who's always dated 2s and 3s finds a 7 who he dates for a while and thinks "I can do better". No. You cant. There aren't QB-10s out there who will come to Chicago, the records that Cutler has broken are from the 40s (!!!).
/end mini rant
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Denard was a Damn Good college QB||
Before his arm injury at least. He's still the only 1,500/2,500 yard guy EVER, and college and pro QBs are doing more running than they used to.
Why make it a camp that Dual Threat QBs wouldn't want to attend?
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Hey now||
Assuming you're a lions fan I'm just going to leave this here: http://www.sportingnews.com/nfl/story/2014-10-06/matthew-stafford-jay-cu...
Also interesting that of the 3 large QBs, one's running >>>>>>> throwing, while the other two are both quite mobile in different ways (Kaep for yards, Cutler for evading the horrific blocking of his own OL)
|2 weeks 6 days ago||So...||
Can we get a discussion of that poster? Are they bombing the shit out of Ann Arbor? Are Cutler/Kaepernick/Shoelace Godzilla sized and evading gunfire? What the hell kind of "Cage Match" is planned?
Also, way in for this. HARBAUGH!
