That has never been the issue. Of course manufacturers can still make lightweight cars. I think using a $3 million super car with an essentially a road legal carbon fiber safety cell as the cockpit is a poor comparison.

But to meet the increasing demand for amenities in even entry level cars and dramatically more strict crash ratings, they only way is to use expensive materials.

And I'm sure the average middle-class family who aren't enthusiasts don't care about their Camry being $15k more expensive to weigh 300 lbs less.
