Porsche might be taking a page from GM. Remember, the Pontiac Fiero had the Corvette dead in its sights just as it was discontinued.

I think it was GRM magazine (among other magazines) that have stated one reason the Fiero was killed involved its evolution into a Corvette killer.

Think of it: a six-speed Fiero with a midship turbocharged Northstar 4.6...against a Corvette, at probably about 1,000 pounds less and $10K less???

That'd probably be the case today.
