Youre correct, they are slowly coming back. But if they hadnt gotten lost in the muck of SixSigma and cheaper materials they would have come back MANY years ago and they would have continued to dominate the performance market like they did in their heyday.
Im no expert, I just call it as I see it. GM had the cars, they only had to make them better instead of worse, Re: 2004 Pontiac GTO (dont get bent, its just my opinion, but sales were lacking and it looked like a grand prix).
Now everyone is finally bouncing back, making better cars (Re: Dodge Viper, C7 Corvette
), but GM has not learned their lesson and are still quietly removing standard equipment from their models and making them options that cost more $$$ the following year. Youd think they would wait awhile to stick it to their customers again. That is was bothers me about them. I love classic American muscle cars.
And I was not comparing their 7 liter fanboi reach-around to my beautiful, refined european work of art.
