Would You Buy An S60 Polestar?

Illustration for article titled Would You Buy An S60 Polestar?

We all talk a good game when it comes to the cars we want manufacturers to make, but would you actually take the plunge?


Welcome to Morning Would, where we present you with some of the most desirable, controversial cars ever built and ask what you would do to drive one.

There is hardly a shortage of compact super-sports sedans in the market today. The BMW M3, Audi S4, Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, and Lexus IS-F are all vying for your hard earned 60-70 thousands dollars. Is it wise for Volvo to try and get a slice of this small pie? Would you make it worth their while?


Since we want to have a conversation everyone can participate in, let's say that you actually have the scratch and want one of these cars. Are you really going to choose an S60 Polestar over the incredible M3 or the unbelievable C63? Even the IS-F is appealing in its odd little way. Then again, 508 horsepower, AWD, and a 6-speed manual in sheep's clothing sounds pretty good…

Would you take your dollars and convert them to kronor for this "Rebel Blue" S60 Polestar? Let us know why or why not in Kinja.

No. Let's pretend for a second that I had the money to buy a new "compact super sport sedan" it would be a really tough decision between the C63 AMG and the M3. I wouldn't even consider the Polestar. Maybe that is me being ignorant of the Polestar's awesomeness, but it wouldn't even be a blip on the radar. I have nothing against Volvo. The sticking point is that I've long held the M3 and any AMG in such high regard and never thought of Volvo as anything other than a safe way for parents to transport kids and groceries. I'm probably wrong, and expect to hear about it from Volvo fans if I'm way off base, but no I wouldn't buy a Polestar.
