There are actually people who want to think a limited 2012 run because of quality issue(s) of this magnitude will make it a highly desired collectible? haha. Ok. Duh.
Deam on. Maybe those uninformed kids that are yet to be born may think so many years from now, but I'm personally going to stay away from them like the plague. Does anyone really want an early 2011 convertible with all the top problems? The Cobra had some sort of front end suspension/weld issue a few years ago, and I bet some people have forgot about that as well. I was poised to run down at the beginning of convertible production and plunk down a deposit on one, but now, I'm going to sit back and wait a little bit.
QC issues happen. I'm sure they'll get it fixed. I'm betting there will be more 2012's made if there's any chance of them fixing it soon. They're in the business of trying to sell cars and make money. So it'll all be ok in the end.
If I were going to bank on a collectible, to which I wouldn't in automotive gambling like this, I'd think if they kept power outputs up for a few more years before the EPA kills them off completely--the 6th gen will be THE one to have if it's indeed lighter and maintains or ups current power levels.
