Lots of snobbery there too with status being the main driver. A Navajo might do the job but that doesn't rank as high as a King Air and that not as high as a Lear. Some companies and individuals have large excesses of money and don't care about initial or operating costs. TBM has been very successful with singles costing upwards of $4M but they wouldn't be there with a piston engine up front IMO.
