For me the money car is 200lbs lighter with 600HP NA 8000+rpm redline. Unfortunately, I can't see anyway this could be done by GM given their stable of technologies. I think anything like an LS7 would not pass smog. We're stuck with either TT or SC for Z, I think. Seems like Heads, Cam, Headers in the arftermarket will get us to 550HP pretty easily.
Oh I agree!
That 8k redline only happens with a FPC or some really fancy heads.
That would be very cool, not sure I could afford it, but very cool. lol
And get rid of the sound shielding and all the other stuff Im sure the base vette has to deaden the experience to appeal to the masses.
I doubt any of that will happen as they would have to R&D a whole new engine for just 1 car when they already have s/c and a tt already done or in the works.
Thats fine i guess, they have to make cars ppl will actually buy.
I don't daily my sports cars and enjoy a more visceral feel. Im already peeved there's no manual trans. Thats why I haven't pulled the trigger on a 4C.
That said, the corvette might be too much car at that price point to pass up.
I like the Evora 400 but want a removable roof and a 2 seater. Plus the cost is a little high for me on that.
Once I start thinking about cost and performance per dollar, even in the used market, I keep coming back to a vette or a shelby cobra. Never had a SC and always thought they were cool. Very visceral.
I love the Cayman/Boxsters too but a bit refined as well and pricey for what you get.
Im not Rockefeller so cost is a big consideration.
Lets see how this new vette drives and performs for real and everyone can go from there...
Who knows? We might not be that crazy about it and that would be that.
THE OBITS, YO!
KEEP CRYIN! WHAA!
REDNECK = PERSON WHO LIVES IN A DUMP BUT DRIVES AN ELISE!
I never played by the rules, and I never really cared
My nasty reputation takes me everywhere
It is admitted by all that he was much addicted to women, as well as very expensive in his intrigues with them, and that he debauched many ladies of the highest quality; among whom were Posthumia, the wife of Servius Sulpicius; and Lollia, the wife of Aulus Gabinius.
