The automotive world has been one that has experienced delays in a way that others haven’t. Most of the time a delay in the automotive world causes moans and groans, but is somewhat expected, especially when the delay is for a much anticipated model that could be the next great sports car from a boutique brand name or is expected to take over a segment. Regardless of the reason or the subject of the delays there is usually an understanding that the automaker ran into some problems during testing or the final production isn’t quite adding up to the numbers expected.
