Great input you guys. And nickat night...I really like you. You bring fresh thoughts and keep it real. Keep up the great input.
@c123pk a few posts back. We have design ideas that overcome labor costs. I want to be the one paying the highest wages for the basic labor and every job in our factory.
My philosophy is often more than merely reducing the cost of a part, but eliminating it by combining function of many parts with one part.
So, therefore, not even China can compete.
My only fear, and it is a VERY BIG ONE, is about Patent Rights in China and India. Will they respect our ideas and not steal the many many inventions in this concept? It is thes very inventions that make this possible.
Frankly, I could build this car in Detroit for $4000, but I want to do it for $3000 in Pakistan. The car will be highly desireable and set new standards for appearance and comfort for an as yet nonexisting car segment.
I do not believe people of little financial means should feel ashamed of their car. It will be the height of cool, I promise.
