With Wayne and Roberts' recent achievement in the 2015 Golf TDI, it further enforces the viability of my wish: For VW or someone to design and build a new Car: 1) Front wheel drive 2) 995cc (about 1 liter) 3 cylinder diesel (higher compression please) 3) 2 seater 4) Aluminum & other lightweight materials 5) Manual transmission, very high final drive gearing 6) CD of .22 (rather than the Golf's .29) 7) Super LRR, high pressure skinny tires (155/80/14?) The obstacles to building and selling such a vehicle may be: limited demand for a 2 seater, safety regulations & airbags making the car heavier than desired, current fuel prices not high enough to create the urgency, etc. And even if one was built, would it only be for sale in Europe? I have always preferred the efficiency and high compression of a diesel. Kubota and Yanmar build SUPER water cooled diesels in Japan. I have no need for 4 doors. Much prefer manual over automatic. It has been 16 years, and I still dont see a car I can buy, that exceeds the efficiency of my first generation Honda Insight. I want a diesel! What is a hypermiler to do??
