Dear Mr. Marchionne, I’m a huge fan of your products here in the United States.

[tps_header]One of the cool parts about being an automotive journalist is that I get to drive a lot of cool cars throughout the year. While I don’t get to sample every new car hitting the streets, I do get a chance to drive some good ones.

In a world of BMW M3s and Mercedes-Benz C63 AMGs, are there are real alternatives that aren’t so… German?
