Not anymore. Millennials and gen z don't care. It's all over. Our civilization is completely fucking doomed.
Raise your children right and it doesn't have to be like that 😉

Given their Chrysler connection, they should just morph into the modern day Detomaso by fitting a 6.2L Hellcat engine to the Gran Turismo - Italian looks, American muscle

Drop the price a bit and they're probably onto a winner.

Would be nice if BMW got lessons on how to SOUND like a maserati ! I had a maserati , looks great , drives decent ( Ghibli sq4 ) but horrible quality ( was at the dealership every 6 weeks with some issue )
The main thing I wish BMW would improve was their exhaust note , even with the M exhaust it's still not better than the standard Maserati exhaust .

why can't bmw sound more exotic !????

Id love me some self driving cars... id kick back and catch up on my shows or games while stuck in traffic. Imagine getting work done while driving to work in the comfort of your car and not mashed together on public transportation.

The possibilities are endless with cars thats self driven!! Driving then really would be a privilege and it would eliminate a whole lot of accidents and unaware drivers that causes unsafe situations.

I am keeping my 6spd m2c til the end of time. You know what, I would always have my motorcycles anyway, do what you wish with cars.

only by people who pretend they are rich. I have a neighbor a few houses down and his son bought a maserati GT. He still lives at home with them.

also his first maserati got lemoned however it was the shit ghibli.

the cars are just overall genuinely awful.

Sales seem to be at an all time high but that's simply because there's now more models at a more accessible price.

But there appears to be a glut of inventory which has driven down prices and residuals. The Ghibli and Levante look nice but they come up short in all other metrics, notably their interior design and quality. Chrysler is such a joke of a company it's shameful to be using their switchgear and infotainment.

Personally I really love the way the Ghibli looks and would love to own one, but it really needs the extended-leather interior in brown or red to feel even remotely luxurious. There's nicer cars from Germany for the price.

When it comes to steering BMW has purposely dumbed down their cars. I wonder if exhaust note falls under that umbrella...
