OK...it ain't so!! ;)

Fortunately, that's a good bit down the line as at this point MB is only considering importing them to China. Even if they build them over there, hopefully it'll be just like Vegas... (it'll stay there! )

Verrrrry interrrresting. They were able to reduce their materials cost by 12% (huge), quintuple their manufacturing speed (giant) and expect to be in the black from now on.
