Fair trade, maybe for a low volume mostly handmade exotic but we are talking top level german engineering and highly automated manufacturing with cutting edge robotics. I agree with henrycao we should expect better, at least after the first MY.

There are two shining examples that it's not a necessary trade. Two of the car worlds most entertaining and celebrated cars are also two of the most reliable. The BMW M3 and the Porsche 911.
