Some of them may be coming but till we can buy them, nothing has really changed. We can easily do without a 40 grand fatmobile.
Unfortunately the average American consumer does not agree with people like you and I. They want to drive bloated beasts and SUV's with 7000 horsepower. There is just no market for nimble, proportionate cars.

If you think Ford is the only company that is bloated, look no further than BMW. Their lightest car is 3400 lbs, for the supposed "ultimate driving machine"... at least Ford's aren't pretending to be something that they're not..
