I was thinking more on the legacy costs of overhead, engineering, production, etc. Given a budget of a couple hundred million and the number of years to create a prototype arrived me to my previous statement.

First solution would be to change the laws and force the banks to be just banks and not a forum for creating markets on the backs of the innocent. Allowing them to have investment capabilities under the same roof was the biggest mistake ever allowed. I still can't wrap my head around companies that are either under government control or still owe the government money for the bailouts are still delving bonuses. Talk about an egregious slap in the face.
