But unfortunately encumbered by a Patent, and the patent is held by a company that won't share the design.
Which makes me wonder if they'll be sued for copying the Apple lightning connector style. And before you say "OMG Apple sues over every silly patent!" remember that Samsung sued Apple for the bounce-back effect when you scroll a list and reach the end (no I'm not joking they really did).
Can anybody give me a reason not to have stability control where that reasons does not contain “fun” or “because”? (which might be sufficient – just looking for any other reasons.)
'Cause, uh, it's a sports car designed for racing?
Mid-engined cars are designed solely to get around corners fast, and they're extremely unstable compared to your average Ford or Honda. The problem is that many are bought by people who have no clue, and end up in a ditch the first time they take their foot off the gas in a corner.
I have had several mid-engine sports cars, both with and without stability control, and you're wrong, mid-engine is the most stable engine configuration a vehicle can have, otherwise why would F1 cars all be mid-engine?
Mid-engine is so stable that the mid-engine Porsche Cayman is commonly known to be the best handling vehicle money can buy:
For a good example of why mid-engine is better imagine a shopping cart with a 30 pack of beer in it and pushing the cart from the back. Front engine is equivalent to putting the beer in the very front of the cart and mid-engine is equivalent to putting the beer at the back of the cart. Try both and tell me which is easier to push around a corner.
So what do I think happened? Fluke 1-in-a-million accident that couldn't be repeated if you tried.
State farm are scumbags. They (company policy) deny any claim that they figure is not worth hiring a lawyer for.
Progressive is worse. Had another driver rear-end me 2 years ago and they had Progressive. Even though it was 100% their fault Progressive refused to pay and I had to sue the other driver. All the other driver kept telling the judge is "I don't know why I'm here I have insurance!"
I guess commercials are expensive.
