Very likely theory. Pretty outrageous however when you step back & think about it - they are dumping the older tech in one of the most expensive models - what's wrong with this picture??

Southy,

Now that's a nightmare. If I remember correctly you don't have the ventilated seats, so at least the offending substance didn't get into the "pores" of the seats.

Actually the updated LED's are on the 2016. ( which I say is no improvement at all.) There is no exterior difference between the 2012-2015 models. And the only way to tell a 2014 on the M Sport is...

Agreed these changes are extremely minor, to the point of being done for the sake of change. And hate that new wheel design.

My vote is the soft close doors on the 2013 forward are one of the neatest, unique features around. Why slam a door closes when you can push it until it latches and let the motor quietly secure it?...

Good point. Hell for $200K I would run to MB for the new S65 AMG coupe. V12 twin -turbo with 621 HP & 738Lb of torque. i8 is not even in the same ballpark.

Bonz,

I'm with you. The I8 is a great looking car, but that will be the day when I pay $135,000 for a 3 cylinder engine. V8 all the way.

I saw a followup somewhere, engine defect linked to blocked oil passages. Engine self destructed. As far as it blowing up on the track, is that not what the vette is supposed to be capable of?

That's the kind of thing that bothers me about cars like the Corvette. Some guys have no problems at all, others describe their cars as nightmares. Very inconsistent quality.
