I wonder where everyone comes up with these prices for what it costs GM to build an engine.

Those costs are not even close to reality.

The OP is FOS.

It is not the cost of the car, it is the dealership experience and everything that goes with it that commands that kind of price. A Porsche salesman will follow you to the bathroom...

That is not how cars are costed out.

Your talking about amortizing hundreds of millions, or billions, of dollars of dev work over the life cycle of a car. Not just piece cost, engineering costs,...

I do not think some of you realize how cheap the parts themselves are.

Development is something else but the end piece cost is for the most part very very low.

I'm in.

The bashing I think comes more from the 40-60 thousand dollar premium for a car not much quicker than a Z06. Chevy found a few thousand people to buy the hype.
