While we slam Maruti & Hyundai for selling two generations of the same car together (Accent vs Verna, Alto vs 800 etc.), here is What VW is doing in Canada. Rather successfully.

Two car guys who wernt particularly rich (one was broke) but decided to buy an NSX instead of a house. Then went on to Ferraris, S2000s and a LOT of track racing.

Excellent website, more like a blog : NSX Files. Make sure you scroll down to chapter 1 (from the menu on the left).
