LogicD, don't forget what else could be done with that billion. Any fool can bring in 50 million a year with a billion to invest. Over 4 years that's about 200 million. At a manuf cost of 25k and sales of something like 40k units over what, 4 years, to break even, 40k units must bring in $5k each to pay for the loss of investment profit. This doesn't leave much for the costs of selling, and raises serious doubts that billion will ever be a good investment.
