It takes much less power to make a car that only goes 20 seconds 0-200 improve to 17 seconds than it is to make a car that goes 15 seconds 0-200 improve to 13 seconds.

If you want a 4 second improvement every generation you will need 1000 hp in 10 years and expecting this sort of thing is just absurd.
Agree, 2 seconds might be a stretch to ask for. I would be happy with a second.
