The Pontiac Lemans was a Daewoo, yes, but it was a Korean built Opel Kadett.  So it is still a GM through and through.

Unlike, say, the Chevy Nova, which one would think would be the same chassis as a LeMans but surprise! Corolla.

Doesn't General Motors have enough four door SUV's? A Corvette is a SPORTSCAR. Not a Soccer Mom/Dad vehicle.  If GM want to make a SUV to compete with Porsche don't call it a Corvette. I don't call a SUV Porsche a 911. It is bad enough that almost no cars, trucks are two door.

These supercar companies I suppose need to make an SUV to survive as going concerns. GM is already mainly an SUV/truck company.

Yep.

The problem isn't them.  It's us.  We don't buy the great cars that built the brand.  We buy the stupid SUVs that parasitize it, or we don't buy any of them at all.

I was under the impression that car companies were guessing when they made cars for us to buy.  I have never received a letter or email asking me about cars I like that they have designed.

Ugh, the ad writer sounds like he's trying something like: "if the reader just believes hard enough, it becomes fact in their own mind." Did anyone ever lose their mind and time a dead-stock Cutlass salon at Riverside? It's got to be pretty terrible. But hey, if it sounds good, it sells.

How often do you buy new cars? If you buy a new car every 2-3 years, car companies will care a lot about what you want. If you only buy used cars, then they don't give a crap. 

Since I've bought 2 new cars during my 35 years of adult life (last one in 2007), car companies don't really care what I think.

Sure, why not ruin Bill and Zora's legacy further?

 

I expect the concept to look something like this:
