    Default Hypercar Saturation

    I recently posted up an article on the saturation of the Hypercar Market:

    Why not chat about your thoughts here rather than just linking to another website?

    Just saying'...

    An interesting read; thank you for posting up.

    They do say history has a nasty habit of repeating itself

    I'm guessing a lot also has to do with the continued cheap cost of borrowing; in terms of who/ how are all these projects getting funded? Is it partly due to the short term nature of the commissions on the loans..."so what if they aren't repaid in 5-10 years I've got my selling commission?" Or am I being to simple/ naive and should stick to engineering

    Interesting perspective on "Buyers"; although if this industry has any parallels to super yachts, whilst the super rich can broadly buy what they want, during the last recession they cooled off commissions new builds, not because they couldn't afford a 100-200million plus yacht, but because it wasn't deemed acceptable to be seen to be! (Tough choices!)

    It is, and I didn't mean any offence btw. I enjoyed the read too.

    I think it'd benefit the forum here though if there's a bit of a brief overview perhaps, then a link to the full article if forum users wish to read further. I'd say that applies to just the posting of youtube links (with no additional content) as forum posts too.

    I only say this for the benefit of CS

    Interesting read. Although when I saw the title, I thought you were talking about your garage

    Nice article, really enjoy your website.

    I find myself bored by the almost weekly release of a new 1m + car that will either never see the light of day and moreover will rarely ever see the road.
