If "fastest in the neighborhood" is your goal (Younger buyers), then the current performance isn't a real plus for sales.
Maybe, but my car has 420HP, I don`t go to the track, so there is legally no place I can use that much power, let alone a car with 6-700HP. I can foresee a day probably in the not too distant future, where either the government, or the insurance companies (or both) will step in like in the `70s & once again put the kibosh on high horsepower american cars. Hope I`m wrong though.
