    You forgot the UPCOMING 2012 Hyundai Kona N. I had money down at a dealership thinking it was AWD, and I had to pull it when finging out it is 2WD. I own a tuned and lowered 1.6T AWD Kona. www.hyundaikonaforum.com/showcase/2018-kona-awd-1-6t-lowered.1162/ (scroll) We found out through people looking under Hyundai Kona N test mules, it is 2WD. About 9 other people I know who were gong to buy it, NOW are not going to buy it because it is a 2WD LIFTED hot hatch. Who wants a LIFTED hot hatch, NOT ME!!!!!!!! Top Gear UK said in a recent article Hyundai decided early on in the Kona N development to nix the AWD. Why, because they are cheapskates. They are said to be listed for more money then a Veloster N and i30 N. Hyundai FAILED FAILED FAILED on this one. A LIFTED overpriced 2WD hot hatch. It COULD of been a nice car for a cheaper Golf R competition.

    Regarding the Chevy SS you don’t know what you’re talking about. GM restricted the number of LHD units it shipped from the Elizabeth WA Holden factory. It was never intended to be a volume seller. Over the 4 years it actually exceeded its sales targets selling approx 13,000 over its 4 year run. GMs targets were 3000 units per year. The car is a classic and depreciation will be very low as it is so desirable.

    The Chevy SS will be a high-dollar classic sometime in the future due to the low sales numbers. Especially the 6-speed models.

    I nearly sold my built 06 sti for a focus rs but the head gasket issues scared me off. Thats saying something cause the sti was also known to have issues. but I sold my sti with over 100k hard miles with over 50k of those miles with a big turbo and never had a single problem.

    can you join all those car pretty please ^^ ? nothing funny and y'all laughed all along ! it's some dead-brain logic that lead ford since decades ! how many of their cars are just plain crap from tires recommendation to servicing consideration ... not to mention the Viper. nothing you say was a lie, but there is more in it to the 'why tho ?" questioning that lead to this.

  • Merkava4IMI

    Why didn't I buy an LFA? Well, because it was $375,000 + Tax when it was released, which I couldn't afford (or close to be able to afford), and now the price almost doubled....which, I can not afford. I still have my 2013 ISF.

    I can't believe they fucked up the viper so bad. I love the viper, but from a performance standpoint its just a little better than a vette (minus the c7 zr1), but for more than twice the price. What were they thinking lol

    How many times have you cheered on a car or a struggling maker, like Studebaker, Chrysler or even (gasp) DeLorean? Now, wait for it, how many times did you convert your goodwill feelings into actual purchases? I must confess I've liked a boatload of cars, only to stick with my dull Honda or Toyota, letting those exciting cars I missed to quietly leave the market...

  • LewisAlcindor

    I can't help but wonder if high insurance rates may also be a reason behind poor sales of these suped-up versions of regular cars.

    The Chevy SS was also too expensive. It should have started around 5k less at least..... It's Chrysler 300 competition was loaded with the Hemi at 41K compared to the 46k for the base Chevy SS.

  • RexApplegate

    I avoided the RS because it looks like a shrunken minivan, has too many doors, and as ever I figured ford won't bring their euro exotics in for long and parts support might be an issue. So, I have a brz. No regrets.

  • Ingaz

    Problem with the viper was its performance to price ratio. A Corvette Z06 make similar performance at way less money. Dodge needed to either make it a corvette competitor and bring the price down or a super car to run with the Ferraris and lambos and bring the price up. Like Ford did with the Ford GT which competes against the best Europe has to offer and is still selling like hot cakes...i mean bag of peanuts.

    Chevy or gm did that on purpose wth the ss because they wanted holden Australia closed and dead, which they achieved along with making thousands unemployed they took billions in government bailouts and pretty much left. Gm are really good at taking tax dollars just look what the greedy bastards did to their own gov after ww2.

    2013-2017 "Chevy ss" was not even made by Chevy, get your facts right, it was a car produced here in aus and then shipped and gm made the different grille for the badge, badges and some other details to make it Chevy. Unless I'm wrong and they produced the left hand version over there after we gave them the schematics and design and manufacturing blueprints?

    The Chevy SS looks like a sunday driver's car. The look doesn't complement the sporty nature, major buzz kill. Same with the Contour SVT. But the LFA and Viper are the hottest looking cars in this list.

    Can you confirm or dispel this story for me?...... I was told that the reason why the Lexus LFA never really took off was because Lexus would only lease them for 12 months and at the end of the term Lexus wanted them back. There are more details but I’ve always wondered if that was true or not.

  • Luke

    Forgot about the 5th and 6th gen regal gs


    I think ford's lesson on the RS is that they really needed to put a leash on stealerships on models like that, but also they can't price it too high themselves.
