Why don't we bet on who will fold this year.... ummm Range Rover and Jaguar might be bought out by an Indian car manufacturer in the coming weeks... I didn't even know that Ford dropped Jaguar (?!?!) --but they kept Volvo?

I am also really interested in whether Porche will finally engage in the hostile take-over of the VAG (volkwagen/audi group)...

However, if domination means the highest number of combined sales... that went to Toyota last year, and there is no way GM will ever take it back in my life time.

I also heard that toyota has been working with subaru in the next iteration of the corolla. They are going to bring the small engined rwd sub compact (AE86 generation 2 !!!!!)back in 2009~2010. whooo whooo cheap affordable fun!!!!

haha especially with the new muscle cars coming out.

A new muscle car/hp war? With the GT-R and other crazy high-end imports, this could get interesting.

There's alot of cars that you see pushing crazy HP in magazines. Just recently, I saw a 660HP Turbo Civic. Christian Rado's team has multiple high HP cars. 550+ HP TC, 1400HP Celica, 980HP Celica.

The GT-R is one of the cheapest supercars.

Impressive list there buddy...that is if you're into spending that type of money...I did meet a local here in our area at a meet last year that has a daily driven Supra that puts out over 850 hp at the wheels that they take to shows & the track...I just like borrowing my older bro's pristine '66 Chevelle with a crate 454 & cruise during the summer months ^_^

BUT i think GM and Chevy will get a hit with the new Camaro. You cant beat 400+ HP V8 for under $32k.

Whoever makes the best next-gen high MPG car for the lowest price. I hear Toyota is making a new Prius that gets over 90MPG. Priuses are only like, $25,000.

Honda gots the Accord with gets like, 70MPG under ideal conditions, I think...

Ford and the rest of them are lagging with Hybrids that only get like, 30-40MPG.

Nissan is just being the powerhouse it always has been. They're going down if they keep it up.

I think it's just Toyota v. Honda.
