Some good old Renault.

Renault is surfing on its past to prepare its future, if I can sum things this way. 


While they are thinking of a coupé, such as the Fuego or the R 17, they will most probably reintroduce the famous R5. 

Here the Alpine version ( R5 Alpine ) :



And here, the less famous but quite charming R17: 





I am curious to see which direction they will take. One thing is sure, it will be an electric vehicle... Alas. 

Best,

Nicolas

Let Megane RS there. Its gonna be tough to compete against fun hot GR Yaris. Please make R5 Turbo Tribute. Bring her up to M2/Cayman class. R5 RS Wide body, lightweight, 480HP++. ??

Would love to see a new R5 turbo .

I like horse power to weight ratio

Swings and roundabouts

You won’t get the sound of a petrol engine - but manufacturers are creating new signature “sounds” for performance vehicles. What you should get is lower center of gravity and better balance due to better weight distribution. Those manufacturers with spor... 

I don't mind the signature sounds of an EV...

...but ONLY if they can be turned off. What's the point of no engine if the car makes fake noise? As for tire/road noise, figure out better insulation or tire compounds. I'm not buying an S-class EV only to hear fake sounds...it should be quiet as a tomb.... 

I am in total agreement.

ROTFL Zanussi-Williams

So the race will be between Gaggenau-Redbull, Miele-Mclaren and Bertazonni? Watchout for Eastroc Xiaomi

I would love to see a CLIO WILLIAMS 🤗

Magic numbers

 
 By: Weems@8 : September 14th, 2021-17:42
While i like names, for Renault the numbers are awesome. When they chose a great name, it is ok. But i saw bad names either. So, i hope they would go back to numbers. And reintroduce the L TL GTL TS etc again. Sorry, i am a nostalgic person.

Agree

A back full of characters. Not the most clean way. 11 TSE said all about that unique car with futuristic dashboard. The influence was huge for me. Do not forget the far beyond tail lights. ...  

Yes!
