    You might just get that chance to see something like it. Its Concept code is Z16, from project X16, and Ive seen a list of production model codes.. one of them being E16.

    Looks like the update for the 350Z with 2+2 and a fancy hatch back.
    Lets hope it gets made and hope the 350Z price range is kept.

    One day I'm sure that Renault will truly have a car that owners of a Logan can aspire to own sometime in the future. So far only the Avantime and Clio V6 seem to have come close, but both seem to have been flawed from reading the various reports.

    The CV6 seemingly being given a hard time performance wise with its sawn off cousin in the form of the RSC 2 litre. The Avantime being a wonderful concept of a proper full four seater GT that could also carry the occupants Louis Vuitton luggage, but again from the reports the Espace underpinnings seem to let it down.

    It would be nice if say the Fluence could be that aspirational car, the coupe as depicted being the four seater tourer, even though it doesn't seem as practical as the Avantime, and say a larger four door car as the presidential vehicle that could rival a Volkswagen Phaeton. Especially as the Fluence seems to carry over a number of style keys from the Initiale (four door) concept car of the mid 1990's.

    Renault seem to be aspiring to influence those people of affluence. All they need now is the right product.

    I quite like the name, but to me the name is not an issue - who cares what its called. If it's nice to drive and looks the part - then who gives a rats arse?

    "Magnae clunes mihi placent,
    nec possum de hac re mentiri" see above.

    Nope, got that wrong. Your machine translator isn't real good. Have another go, think "Megane II" and a hint : "magnae clunes" means "large buttocks"
