Here's another one I've got my eye on. Don't know what/when US pricing will be done - if they even get around to exporting it.

Well - if you buy ZweierCoupe's pricing model it may be twice a 135. or if you buy C&D's pricing model maybe 3 times - I think European base is 61K euros - don't know what they'd do here since there is no history for Artega at all (new company, a subsidiary of 'paragon', an OEM supplier to the auto industry).

Would you believe a 300 HP VW VR6 w/ DSG in a two seat 2400 pound car? ; -)

Salesman said they should get the new turbo convertible late 2008 (about the same time the 135 cabrio should come out :wink

I'm just glad that it appears sports car enthusiasts will have so many options from whence to choose.
I am with you 100%.

The 135 first got my attention because with just a little mod money I can have a car that weighs close to 500 lbs less and has even more hp/tq than my gto (I'm willing to sacrifice a little back seat room so long as it is easier to get back there than it is in the goat).

The only car that I will also consider that you may not have is the challenger. I know it is going to be even heavier than the camaro, but if it feels right who knows.

I don't remember the exact price. I think the sticker on the turbo was about $32K. It had some REALLY nice seats that the salesman said cost $2K. I didn't price one out as I am not planning on buying anything until I can test drive the 1er cabrio. When I'm ready, my price range will be 30-35. Maybe a little more depending on where the 1er cabrio falls. I would hate to have to settle for a 128.:wink:

It was fun to drive, but it didn't quite feel as "comfortable" as my 325. It was probably just because it was unfamiliar. The turbo had a noticeable lower rpm performance increase over the supercharged. It lit the tires up going into second with the DSC on and without popping the clutch. I would definetly wait for the turbo mini convertible.
