I’m nearly positive that the people who are buying morizo are probably not using it as an “only car” there might be a few, but overall I feel like the majority will have other vehicles to use regularly.
everyone is missing the point of why anyone would buy the morizo.

i can 100% see a ton of people buying one. these people are not the average person though, not even close. It's for collections, people that are a fan of akio, toyota, etc. The other type just want to take this to the track and go nuts. Nothing else. I highly doubt they leave it entirely stock. I'm sure racing teams will pickup a morizo over a core. There are other cars in it's price range that are better performance wise, but as everyone keeps saying about these cars when driving them for longer than a day, they drive better than spec sheets dictate. i dunno. just some thoughts

There's a pretty great post on Facebook of a guy reselling his Core for a Morizo. He wants his cost covered: MSRP + tax + shipping + fees + ppl + photos. He claims it is pending, which is really f'ing annoying. At least he's getting dragged pretty bad in the comments which, for that type of person, is probably just as agonizing as losing money.

i don't even care that much that he's trying to cover his tax cost. that's not unreasonable since a lot of other cars that are newer that are for sale do the same shit since forever.

what's stupid is that he's trying to cover the cost of shipping and photos lmao. especially the photos. like what the fuck

I looked at that. He wanted 45k. Loaded IC Core, + PPF, + taxes + Shipping. I originally said not a bad price but then I thought about it, and anyone buying it, at least in TX, is going to have to pay sales tax on the car. So buying that car you’d be be paying the tax twice. At 6.25% for car purchases in TX, buying this car effectively means you‘d pay 12.5% tax purchasing it. F that.

The itemizing is the garbage part. If he says $46k because that’s the going rate and leaves out why he priced it that way, it’s somehow feels less shitty. Itemizing it feels like “hey, I got one for MSRP, it was a mistake because I can get an even better one (that most people won’t have access to), please bail me out of my mistake.”

It is probably me subconsciously being annoyed that we’re collectively validating dumb decisions made for YOLO and my kid is growing up in that culture. Do whatever you want; someone will probably bail you out.

There has been a number of people buying 2 of these cars. The one guy in UT, buying a non-PP equipped car, then getting a 2nd allocation for a PP car, and buying that also. Then other people buying a color they didn’t want only to get a 2nd allocation for the color they wanted, buying the second, then selling the first. Now we are beginning to see the exact same thing for people getting ME’s and soon to be CE’s. It’s sickening, more for society at large, like you were referring to bringing your child up in this. God in Heaven, these mf’s don’t have the simple patience to just wait a little bit for what you want? FOMO, FOMO, FOMO! I don’t know if the analogy of these people being children is better, or comparing them to people in the Matrix, in the little cocoon with the hoses hooked up to all orifices, living on a diet of other dead “copper tops”. I’ve said this before, I could have bought a Core, at MSRP, in each color, all with PP/TP, and turned all 3 down. Right thing to do. There would be some money in it for me to make, a few k, on each, too, but I’d feel like a dirtbag buying 1, 2, or even 3 of these cars only to resell them. Not much different than what those scumbag Carvana, Vroom f’ers do.

It’s just the world we live in. I have no love for it either. Just embarrassingly poor behavior to me. No good for the community at all. Just FOMO and narcissism run amuck. To me they should find an island, call it Han’s island, and ship all these clowns there. Free up acreage in the US for people who can actually think for themselves, people that have some decency, and let’s just ship the clowns out to the island. I take it back, instead of Han’s island with a Kung Fu tournament, just call it image island. They can shoot all the bachelor, bachelorette, all the rest of them bs “reality” programming there, and set up bleachers for people to watch. /rant off
