I was thinking of Porsche too.  Wendelin Weideking (Porsche's CEO) 
would be able to work his magic with another German icon.  Offer 
Digital M bodies as optional extras for 911s, finished in matching 
leather.  Boxster buyers would only be offered Digiluxes.  hehe.  But 
still with nice leather.

Porsches and Leicas go hand in hand.  Special, different, high 
performance, the best Germany has to offer.

Or maybe Apple could come to the rescue.  There's another brand that 
appeals to aficionados.
