The word "infeasible" seems to be more appropriate sounding to my ears more than "unfeasible".

A Google search reveals about 24,60,000 results (0.34 seconds), and 14,70,000 results (0.27 seconds), respectively. Probably, the results reveal that a lot more people may just feel the same way as I do.

Infeasible? this sounds very wrong to me. I use unfeasible.

Quotation

“Few things are impracticable in themselves; and it is for want of application, rather than of means, that men fail to succeed.”

Which is why I drive, quite proudly I might add, a Tata Nano.

Although, I doubt it would be impracticable to drive a luxury car in this economy. One may drive around anything one fancies.

But, the point here is, whether it would make practical sense to own one such car in this economy unless one is the Economy itself.
