Next Pope ?

Anyone have any thoughts on who might be elected the next Pope ? And, how it will effect Porsche if he's not German ?

I thought they used a Boxster that's in good shape and just started to get the white smoke, and one they allowed the AOS to go bad in to get the dark smoke.

Vegas odds have it at 8 to 1 that the new Pope will be a guy named Shecky....

After praying at length, rumor has it that the last Pope became so worried and distraught at the possibility of an IMSB failure in the Pope Mobile that he couldn't carry out his duties and resigned. Just goes to show that even god can't tell mankind when IMSBs will fail.

Rumor has it that R&D for this project is what put Zeintop out of business. Loads of red tape when dealing with the Vatican. Apparently DOT requirements for underage passengers and the homologation process did them in.

Sources tell me, that the conclave is going to the outside on this one. I'm betting that either Bruce Willis or Sylvester Stallone will be elected the next Pope !

Porsche has big problems coming their way. There have been numerous reports of IMS failures throughout Argentina, and this new Pope is going to heap damnation upon them.
I really thought Stallone was going to be elected though.
