i was going through many interesting post on this very involving topic, followings are my humble observations
1. somebody gave a very good example of what kinetic did in case of comet, i think every successful model say, honda city, fiesta 1.6, swift, palio should come with an option of an outragously powerful and sport model or shall i say every manufature should come with an option of sport model which can be deliverd on demand, this will keep both the regular and enthuciastic customer happy, and market, cost factor will not be at risk
2. again in one of the post someone has given very good suggestion that manufacture should give an option, so if coustomer wants he can go for a power pack(engine, exhaust, suspension the works) without risking the warranty, a safe and sensible option for both manufacure and client
3.many would argue we already have such options in place like look at ford or honda but what am i trying to say is that, suppose fiesta 1.6 which comes with 101 bhp, a sport model can come with 115 bhp, now of cousre it will make FE suffers and this is where those customers comes in who do not care about it.
its an initiative which must be taken by established brands, just for the heck of it, and what they will find is their are many takers for it, bad road be damned
some fat tyres man, ya, but got to check rest of the truck
