will Honda and Dodge joining World Rally Championship in the future?

World Rally Championship needs more new manufacturers such as Honda and Dodge. Dodge wants WRC expansion to challenge Ford and Honda wants WRC expansion to make the sport manufacturer's become crowded. If Honda joins WRC, Honda probably to use Honda Civic car and Dodge joins WRC to use Dodge Charger sedan car. Your thoughts?

Dodge Charger as WRC car??? If it was the Dart... the Charger is just too big for WRC car.

Taking stock of the current state of WRC affairs...I believe there will be no new manufacturers any time soon. The sport is in free fall...searching for an identity.

Toyota's attempt has been a bit of a long suffering fiasco. The 2017 cars will only alienate more purists and not attract new fans. Instead of clownish looking abortions, stick to stock looking cars with monster horspower and limited traction.

& if the Dodge Charger was orange, with 01 on the doors, had a rebel/CSA flag emblazoned on the roof, & was named 'General Lee'..

Im stoked about the new cars. Does that mean I'm not a "purist"? In whose eyes? Yours?
