It's the most profitable car co. to date. They also own Audi, Porsche, Lamborgini, Bently and 1 or 2 more.

I think it would be cool to marinize them. A Lambgini V10 They are much lighter in weight, size wise I could have put 3 of those vs the 2 - 480/925 Yanmars in my 4300 Nortech. The only problem is it needs to make a little more power and torque, around 400/650-700 to make it worth going to trips vs twins in these larger boat applications. Then you could go to ASD-7's with bravo props vs the ASD-8's and Big expensive props. Time will Tell.

Dont forget Raylar, he's working on a diesel something, what, I dont know, just what I hear. Jeff

VW does ok...but Porsche' has the greatest profit margins of any car compnay. Why? They control demand and production and the options are very costly.

I found out that they can build a Carrrera S for 50 grand and they sell it for $105 with a couple options. Look at the car closely...I can't see the money can you?

The new Mercedes Benz S-550 with 400 HP goes for 86k loaded...I can easilly see the money there.

86k is the base price without delivery even, throw a few popular options and it closes in on 100k pretty fast...
