1 billion people, where most are poor. I bet these knock offs are a steal compared to the real ones? Perhaps they dont get those models, so they make fake ones?

they look funny

I bet it's just way cheaper to steal ideas than to invest in your own!

A company spends millions on design and then the Chinese steal it and start making them on a huge scale for their country.

I read a news article about a BP gas station not too far away from here, they were selling Chinese Nikes. $50 for a pair of Air Force Ones or whatever they're called. The Po-Po's raided the station.

Are these photoshops or just rebadging cars like every domestic automaker already does?

I had to throw away a gift my daughter got for christmas because of lead. A Dora tea set. They said a lot of kids got sick from it because they drink out of them. Luckily she got 2 tea sets and has only played with the other one.
