If you click on the picture of the new Auris, and then quickly look at the CT200h...... they look extremely alike! I never noticed before as the Auris clearly was "inspiried" by the i30, Guilietta,etc

I imagine the employees building the new Auris have to have an injection of stimulants before they start their shift lest they'd be dropping off on the production line through having to look at such boring cars all day. Conversely, Lamborghini's workers probably need calming down.

Can your GP prescribe anything for range anxiety?
