Separating the sedan from coupes on a higher more expensive lines such as the 4 coupe? I get the strict regulations set forth by EPA by 2024, are pushing automakers to FI, somehow feel we are on the short end of the stick and soon motorsport will be something we'll be reading in the history books, as we get watered down versions of what a true icon was traded off with tech and FI. This is ok at best in my books, what I dislike is moving to an all new platform, +/- the digits it's like Porsche making a 711
It always boils down to the EBIT.
They haven't even released a single spec and you're throwing in the towel? Okay. Also as far as every single other model goes, how is lighter, faster, more fuel efficient, safer, and better handling "watering it down" just because it has fewer pistons?
