First and foremost, it's an all new ground up engineering development. There's a LOT of your cost right there.

Secondly, I haven't seen anywhere they're abandoning the front engine model just yet, just a phased approach. It would be devastating for them to introduce the new mid-engine model - and have it fail - with nothing to fall back on. Hence, offering both for a bit to see how it plays out.

I would bet there's C8 FRONT engine mules somewhere out there in addition to the Zora.
