After over forty years in the custom paint and body biz... and lots of major 'glass work, including prototypes and molds... here is my take on it:

For a body that will see limited sales, metal stamping dies are really not practical because of the major expense. For limited numbers, that leaves 'glass as the logical material.

For a car that will sell hundreds of copies, metal bodies become more realistic.
