A couple (or three) thoughts:

1. It's unfortunate that business considerations limited our choices.

2. I reminds me of what a brilliant addition the Datsun 240Z was to the 
market. Great performance, low price, smooth engine and not bad styling, 
either. Somebody got that one right. It was a fully fleshed out concept 
that had a lot more market research and development money around it than 
Rover probably was capable of. The P6BS was typically innovative, but it 
was really just some machine the boys were tinkering with in the back room.

3. The Graber coupes should have been produced.
