A simple question about building factories, and the example shown in the rules :
(first turn) Durant has already built one Durya factory. Then, on the example, another player choose to skip the "Buick Model B" to buid 2 "Jackson Model 40" factories... So, what is the point, the Jackson beeing more expensive to build (in money and R&D)? It would be more efficient to build the Buick, wouldn't it ?

Thank you for the answer

I have the original, so my rulebook seems to have different examples.

My guess is:

If the last two in your example are the same colour, building the first one will immediately allow someone to build the next one and make his slightly obsolete (earning loss cubes at the end of the round)

By skipping that, he might be making the next factory of his colour a little more tricky to build for his opponents.

There is grandeur in this view of life, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.

You generally want to take the most advanced factory you can to minimize how quickly and how often it is surpassed and begins generating loss cubes.

While the more advanced factories are more expensive, the only question is whether you can afford that cash in the short term (generally meaning can you afford to build all the cars you want to on your next turn). Because ultimately, whether the factory is cheap or expensive, you will get all your money back out of it, or lose the same $100 when you close it.

The example game concentrates on getting all the rules of the game. Players don't play well in that one in strategical sense I think.
