Unfortunately like many things, as time goes on, companies make their products cheaper and cheaper and cheaper. They old adage, "They just don't make them like they used to." We get inferior products and the companies continue charging either more or the same money for re-marketed re-hash, but not as good as the original. See the Porsche and Wilson comparison below: K90 (Pinnacle of the series, a tank, well made, a classic) = Porsche 993 (Last hand made and air cooled 911. An indestructible tank. Collector's item) BLX90 (Less raw feel, prone to paint chipping, attempt by company for more mass appeal, easier to use) = Porsche 996 (first mass produced Porsche, water cooled 911, cheaply made, less raw when compared to 993, numerous quality control issues including catastrophic RMS and IMS problems) BLXPS90 (Materials feel even cheaper, frame not as solid, quality control weight issues all over the place, hollow pingy sound on impact, paint job shiny and "toylike", quick, light, made for mass appeal, made to be easier to use) = Porsche 986 (Not even a 911 but a cheap Boxster. Quick, light, fast, cheaply made, easy to drive, prone to RMS issues, terrible resale value, but made for mass appeal and sales). Even the earlier K90's (K)arbon Black were superior to the later (K)arophite Black models.
