I intended to convey that I didn't quite like the sight of an Elantra in America. I called the Elantra a 'reverse concept' cause it has interiors which remind you of Jap. cars of the 80's....since a concept is a look into the future, it's reverse is a look into the past. It was my own way of presenting it!

Guys, was recently in San Jose and caught up with some of the US car ads. Everyone seems to be on the FE mantra. Honda,Toyota,Nissan,GM et al..all advertising,more than ever before,that they are the most fuel efficient!
But what surprised me was the print ad of a Porsche 911 Carrera I saw in the Car & Driver magazine. While, claiming to be a fuel efficient car, it talks about how Porsche has always understood that "better performance was always about better efficiency"!
Well, talk about the Leopard changing spots..
