It scares me a bit that they're skipping the show right at the time when the car is supposed to become available. However, I feel better knowing that they skipped Detroit 2010 as well, so maybe they're just trying not to waste time and money. Still, from a PR
perspective it may have been a bad move to skip it. They really need to get the car in the hands of reviewers and customers to earn some much needed confidence.
I totally want to buy one, and once I get a chance to test drive one and read some reviews I'll plop down my deposit if it all pans out. From what I can tell the best case scenario for me actually receiving an order would be in September 2011 which allows for plenty of time to find out if the car is a lemon or a gem. I'm hoping for a gem!
