      I just watched a 12 minute video of the spokesman revealing new acura. I kinda agree how he used a lot of empty corporate phrases but not as much as I thought he would after listening to the podcast. I find it somewhat funny how the spokesman went on about how performance isn't just about the speed and raw numbers, but when he talked about the performance of the car, he only talked about the powertrain, not the suspension besides the awd. I need to look up the engines in this car but unless they have turbos (especially the 2.4) or the v6 is stellar p, I don't see this car hitting the enthusiast demographic. I'll be interested in seeing the weight of the car, as well as the interior. A dct with torque converter seems odd but it will probably help with their main demo in a smooth ride. I do get kinda what he's saying about red carpet athlete; that the car is for enthusiasts with performance in mind, and also has the look and feel of a luxury car. Maybe he thinks it will catch on and be a new slogan for them, honestly I like it better then their current "luxury intelligently designed" or whatever it is. I do like the paint jon, along with the headlights and some of the lines on the car. The beak still needs to go. If the new interior is a vast improvement over the last Acuras in that its distinctness is wide from honda, I think it might do ok. To me the main focus on the car as presented by the spokesmen in order was safety, and a quiet ride that will be fun to drive. All in all, I do to think this car will be what they invision it to be compared to the competition. As always thanks for the podcast.
