How many piss on BMW/Merc/Porsche stickers do you see on the streets?

I do have to say that I'm somewhat impressed by GM and their LS7..
7.0 Liter displacement, CNC??(variable valve timing, I guess), and dry sump oil system...
Why do you think it has ended here with cars like the Mustang GT500(450 HP est.) in the pipeline?
