Re: Jalopnik liks the P1 V70R (Needsdecaf)

Humm.. I thought that the newer style was a P2 series.. But that was just from the reading here over the past year. Since this is before the newer body chassis (P2?) V70's.. I assumed this would be a P1... i think then it's safe to assume it didn't have that name.<p>What did they call the chassis that the 1st gen was created off of?

That chassis was the 850. Underpinned the s70 and v70. simple enough.
