New EPA laws

I got this sent to me and I thought I'd pass it along.

http://finance.yahoo.com/family-home/article/105049/Today's-Gas-Guzzling-Exotic-Cars-May-Get-Zapped-by-New-Fuel-Rules

I can't get the link to work, so cut and paste.

The upshot of this might be a need for new variants, boosting annual volume, more practical for day to day driving. Most exotic makers no longer offer cars suitable for daily driving as done in years past. I've always thought there would be a market for high quality, straightforward sports cars that weren't so 'out there' so to speak. Everything now is heavily techno-loaded and extreme. A modern day 308 with a regular 6 speed and simple engine would be really nice.
