Some of those things aren't exactly true though.

Quality
When Fifth gear tested the Caparo T1 it caught fire and put the driver in the burn unit. Then Top Gear tested it and the floor fell out and the throttle got stuck. Ferrari and Lamborghini do make quality vehicles but a lot of the fastest supercars are very unreliable
Ford has reacalled more than a million cars in the last 5 years
Chevy has recalled more than a million cars in the last 5 years
G.M. Has recalled more than a million cars in the last 5 years

The top 3 american car companies each recalled more than a million cars in the last 5 years. These were entire lines of cars not specific malfuntioning units.
how many of these supercars had to be recalled?
(and the #'s above have been understated to reatain some american pride here

G.M. owns chevy, therefore chevy losses are a G.M. loss. Chrysler is the third of the big three, also having a very large recall rate.

That might be true but how does that have anything to do with supercars? Recalls don't happen just because something is unreliable. I bet you didn't know that Toyota came very close to having dozens of recalls this past year. And the only reason they didn't have any is because they told all affected owners to come and get their cars fixed. Recalls are forced on a manufacturer by the NHTSA if they don't take care of it themselves, manufacturers don't issue them, they're forced to.

Anyone that buys a supercar knows that they'll be spending tons of money to keep the thing running. They have tons of money and are constantly getting anything that goes wrong fixed. The high volume supercar manufacturers like Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Porsche make very reliable cars. The small time ones are the one that break down a lot. These companies makes less than a dozen cars a year and the owners are taken very good care of by the manufacturer. As long as the manufacturer fixes the problems willingly there can't be a recall, that's why you never hear about supercar recalls.
