The 996 is the last rear engine (real) car in production.

They stopped making the Renault Alpines, the Mexican Beetles, the Tatra's, the Skoda 100 series and so on. Only other remaining vehicle is the Smart which in my opinion isn't a "real" car.

The Fiat X1/9 is mid engined as well as the DeLorean and the Elise.

I don't see how the 928 outperformed the 911s?

In general I don't really think this whole thing is about which car concept is the better. It's all about offering something that is DIFFERENT. It would be a boring world if all performance cars were either mid engined V8s or front engined 4 cylinder turbo 4x4 rally cars. I want variation and brand identity. Not from the front grille design but from the way the car is constructed.

Long live the wacky concepts
