Ok so just wanna see your opinion guys, personally I like the cayman, i think it will be a hit, especially the Type S version! Other vehicles are leaving me in a big confusion room...

Same as Superfresa. Give me one argument that X5 coupe makes any sense.

I really think the Veyron is utterly pointless.

The Porsche Cayman is a mistake. It will steal sales from the 911 infinitely more than it will attract new people to the fold. Were it priced in the 35k range, then it would be a real market share enhancer.

if I have to pick out a car out of that lineup, it would be the M5 wagon, US only. It might sell well in other regions but I don't see a lot of people biting into such car here in the US. And it degrades the M image.<br><BR><BR>

Whats the point whit the B and R class? and why make a AMG of the R-class?<p>

Gibbs Aquada and Humdinga. Really, does anyone need a car or an SUV that can swim? Something tells me that this is a niche hardly worth exploiting.

i voted for the R55. i don't just think that a that fast version of that car is pointless, but the whole project is pointless...

If that Bentley SUV that's in the News and Romors section goes into production, then it is the most pointless upcoming model. It will destroy Bentley's image. 3 other companies: Audi, Porsche and VW have an SUV on that same platform already. <br>I can't wait for Bugati's version with a 16-cylinder engine. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/cwm13.gif" BORDER="0">

I voted for X5 coupe, but R55 AMG was a close call.<p>The X5 Coupe just doesn't make any sense to me.

R55 AMG, well the R in general actually because it will just be another canibal within MB.

It will be funny to see what BMW lovers say when/if Beemer brings out an MPV...because hardly any Beemer lovers see the point to the R-class!

how can anyone say that a R55 is impractical because of speedy soccer moms when the M5 wagon is on the board? what soccer mom needs a V10?

who says soccer mom's drive wagons? as far as I know it's minivans...personally I would buy an M5 wagon...I loved the E39 wagon...in M5 form it would've been sweet...Couldn't you classify the X5 coupe in the same class as the Range Rover Sport?

I'm have to say the Mark LT. It's just a tarted-up F-150. The F-150 is a fine truck, so who needs an overpriced Lincoln variant?

what about the 4 (i think it is 4, i lost count) minivans from GM sold in the US. I personally would not buy a single one, yet GM changes the grille (maybe more indepth differences, but for the most part, dont care) and before you know it.... 4 less than competible minivans..... i think that is a perfect definition of pointless

I went of the X5 coupe.... really.....<p>For the R-class, those soccer mums need the 350kW to get around... so I'll let it slide.<p>Why is the M6 Cabrio pointless. I can't wait.

Not on the list... but the new Maybach coupe.
