If Chrysler (oops..DCX) decides to invest in this loss-leader for increasing exposure it would be a financial mis-step. There are several indicators that, in a business sense, would, on the surface anyway, validate my assumption.
#1. DCX has already established themselves as a market player with a very good and alternate array of product.
#2. This very good array of product has been initially recieved with enthusiasm from the press, and more importantly, the purchasers.
#3. This very good array of product sill does NOT exhibit the class of durability and expected "world class" standards in several areas of materials, build, reliability, etc.
#4. Go back to my #1,2 and 3. WHEN the corporation melds their shit in an acceptable way, THEN they can invest in a world-player supercar. Take care of the bread-and-butter before you invest in filet.
Over the years there have been seemingly countless excursions into fantasy by various automakers that have (irrespective of glowing press releases and auto mag/fag writers on the under-the-table dole) promised what we all have expected but never have even seen, let alone had in our garages. The new DCX Supercar is another fantasy that, if ever built, will result in just another pretty POS
like the GM
Turbine cars, or any other "I'll build one for you if you have a couple million bucks" cars.
Good press. Bullshit feasibility. Regards...Jack
