Except that they are a small high-end company manufacturing sedans, touring wagons, coupes, roadsters, and motorcycles. And, lest we forget, sport-utility vehicles. Your comment is exactly what people said when the X5 first came out.

I think variations on the touring wagon concept will sell. One and two box vehicles are more space-efficient than three-box vehicles, and if they can put some style and handling into the mix, they could do well.
