To no-one’s surprise the Lagonda (ok, Aston Martin) Taraf will be sold in the UK, Europe, and not just in the Middle East as the company originally planned. This makes me wonder why did Aston Martin not make this car in the first place, rather than the unloved, too-small Rapide?
On a related note, the failure of the Rapide also makes me think that Porsche made the right choice when it canned their 989 Panamera project. Sure, it looked great, but its lack of rear seat space would have held it back the way it holds back the Rapide, and who knows, might have actually bankrupted the company before the Boxster ever got a chance.
