    The 200C deserves a chance though Cerebrus showed it to add "value" to the failing company.
    Sorry Marty, the Lexus Prius is just not something that fits the bill, and even if it's very different to the Prius it looks a lot like a Camry...

    Lexus Prius best production car? you have to be kidding right, takes bland lexus design further downstream with plumped up prius. Is likely to be heavier (for all the luxo gear) and thus less fuel effecient and yet have all the crap drving sensation of a prius. Sales of Lexus' other hybrids has not been a great success so not sure why this will be either.
    200C, if they can get it to work and spend some real money on the interior and improve quality as well as make it for another 3 years maybe, but a lot against it, though unlike Lexus prius hope they do make it.

    "ES not heading into sunset"

    Actually, Lexus said the new HS fits "between the IS and ES" ... it's additive, not a replacement for the ES. That car seems to have its own weird market, separate from any other Lexus, and it's almost never mentioned--but it's gotta be profitable, being a Camry underneath and all.

    There must be some amazing engineers on the Nartron team. It is great to see a company, in the state of Michigan, pushing the American automotive industry into the future. It is people like that, that made the big three what they were and that can breathe life back into it. Great job Nartron, my hats off to you.
