Exactly.. Theres a reason paganis and other exotics are so expensive. I would expect the starting cost of one to be at least $60,000-$65,000

Who says they don't have a fast way to mass produce? And those cars you described are all hand built

Hell its already happening the drive shaft for the 2013 mustang gt500 is made from carbon fiber. Plus they said some components not major parts to the car will be cf so price should stay relatively low. And if the company that started the assembly line itself can't mass produce it...no one can!
