  • 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.

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...

  • 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.

Unless I'm wrong and they produced the left hand version over there after we gave them the schematics and design and manufacturing blueprints?

  • 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.

  • The main reason the Viper was cut is because of the new mandate and laws Regarding air bags on the pillar it would have hit you right in the temple, they were not going to redesign it order to facilitate this law. And natural aspirated 8.4 liter engines.. (Which was the largest production engine ever put into a car..) were becoming dinosaurs- **straight from FCA engineer**

  • Hell, I still want the Chevy SS. As a guy who is a parent, it's the best of both worlds. Something I can haul the kids around in and still have a full on driving experience. Now if only the damn things would drop to a down to earth price as rare as they are due to lack of production numbers...

  • When he said chevy did'nt make alot of the SS that should have been GM had a contract to buy a fixed amount from Holden in Australia and they were just forfilling their contract and did'nt want to spend any money on promotion , I think the deal was part of deal for the longer wheelbase Aussie Commodore Caprice to be the replacement police car in the USA thats were GM made their money on the Aussie car , also Chevy rebadged Aussie Holdens police cars are being used in the Emerates

  • You actually skipping that when Studebaker went under a few executives got together and continued to build the car so that’s why we have a 64 and there is a 65i, 66 they were just called Avanti II and that was before Avante motors corporation got a hold of it and put on that hideous impact bumper. You’re also skipping the fact that Studebaker was beleaguered already and they were on their last legs and this car was the one that was going to save them they just did not have the money to survive the problems of production.

    John RobinsonJohn RobinsonPrije dan
  • The reason why the Dodge Viper failed is because they were so fast and turkey in the first three years people are wrecking and dying in them constantly. That gave the car a bad reputation because people and the average every day driver did not actually know how to handle the car properly. Now with that being said it is still a great reliable vehicle if you know how to drive a 600 hp vehicle. It does get slippery in the back in. But all in all it’s still a great car
