That is horse****. Such a bull**** privileged opinion. Yeah, young people don't want to spend half a house on a fun car, but there are plenty out there who if they could afford the exorbitant prices for even used enthusiast cars, not to mention new enthusiast cars, then the market would be plenty healthy. Now Hondas, Miatas, E36s/46s, 350z/G35s, and BRZs are the only affordable (in terms of buy in and cost to make fun) options out there, and it's not long before we can cross the BMWs off that list as well. When I bought my first 240 almost a decade ago, there were so many platforms that you could get into for less than 5k. Z cars, rotaries, old toyotas, hondas. The issue is that regulations made it expensive to make these cars as manufacturers had to consolidate resources instead of being able to just make bespoke platforms for sportscars, trucks, or economy cars. CAFE and crash standards killed the enthusiast market, not kids.
