Since the Sedan facility is pumping out 3x the amount of Sedan's of the Coupe facility, stands to reason that it is 3x more productive and therefore substantially less expensive to operate per vehicle produced.

It's the biggest reason the Coupe is more expensive than the Sedan. It's not features, it's not raw materials. It's production inequality.

I'll stand by what I said because I understand amortization from my extensive business experience.
