How many 16 year olds are going to be able to afford one? Plus they kill themselves every year on sport bikes and you can still buy those cheap.

I agree 100% Not only did they gloss over the ZL1 but not 1 single domestic HiPo vehicle in there? WTH? At lightning lap last year the Vette GS utterly destroyed the NSX, Cayman and M2

Isn't the way to make parts less expensive to share them across platforms and improve manufacturing efficiency? Low production actually cost significantly more than mass production right?:iono:
