Okay... I'll bite.

WHY should it sell for the same price as a vette?

Mind putting down what you think the cost of build would be.. and profit
per car.. and dont forget to project sales volume.

And, finally, exactly how doing that would help Ford.

Pricing is set by the market. Competition sets the price.

Build cost can be reduced as needed by outsourcing. Build the thing in
China in a few years and the build cost could be quite low.

Selling vehicles with quality that customers want and making money would
help Ford quite a bit. The change might shock them at first, but I think
they could handle it.

Nah...

the 2k5 'stang won't stand against a 'vette

(but I would buy the stang first, looks nicer)

It's about the *only* retro-car that looks nice IMHO

Bret,
What you're saying holds much merit however, Corvettes are built on an
assembly line in Bowling Green, KY whereas the Ford GT is primarily hand
built with the exception of the robot welds of the chassis/"skeleton". (Saw
this on a program on Speedvision)
Do I really think that is justification for the juxtaposition in price of
a Corvette and Ford GT? Absolutely not!!! Auto manufacturers do though.
Personally, I don't believe that /any/ American car is worth the price
posted on the Monroni sticker.
I don't know this for a fact but perhaps Ford does not want the GT
available to just anybody. Can you imagine if the "Fast and Furious" set
could afford to trade in their "ricer/tuner" cars for a Ford GT? The
highways are dangerous enough the way it is!
