What an incredible engineering accomplishment by Chevrolet
Nothing like it at twice the money.

When Detroit gets serious...

Meanwhile my dream car is a Tahoe with the 6.2.
I find it difficult to get in and out of the Vette at my age so, yep, a Chrysler SUV might get the call for me. A Dodge Durango with the 475hp 6.4 Hemi would be a $ compromise but otherwise it would be the 707hp 6.4 Supercharged Hemi in the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Can you see the massive 4 wheel burnouts! :eek:
What I really want is a Ram pickup with one of those engines. I don't know why Chrysler is holding out, we've been begging for years now.

Yes, followed by the transfer case replacement bill!

I checked out the Durango/Grand Cherokee when I was shopping for a three-row crossover, but even the base models cost way too much.

I'd love to try Ford's new 7.3L pushrod V8, though I have very little use for pickup trucks.

Wow. What an incredible car. It's just beautiful.

edit: Holy crap, they are going to produce it in RH drive! Aussies will love it!

With a power convertible hardtop like that I can't imagine why anyone would buy the coupe, just to save $5k?
It's got such a freakin beautiful roof line.
You'd probably get that $ back on the resale.

I shudder when I see the new Toyota Supra. I'm just not attracted to it. It's the sum of all the design angles and bulges.
They are trying really hard to hide the Bavarian bits. The bizarre front-end intakes/splitters are a huge turn-off for me.

I have never been a fan of corvette but this is a nicely done car at incredibly low cost. And a great intro video with Jay. Was nice watching the full hour video.

@Sal1950 that price is for a base car which lacks a lot of stuff most cars at that price level have. Most notably, memory seats. I was seriously interested in the coupe, but was put off by very limited luggage space. There isn't enough for 2 people to take a road trip if one is a typical woman.

Finally saw one on the street earlier this week. Unfortunately going the other way so other than seeing what it was didn't see much.

Geez, the base model doesn’t even have heated/cooled seats or an auto-dimming mirror.

Using their builder site, one I would want would be $74K.

From that angle is looks like they took the back of a Porcha 911 and mated it to the front of a Datsun 240Z Fugly

It's a "sports car", not a "grand tourer". The Ferrari F40, the first production car to (more or less) attain the mythical barrier of 200 MPH, had strings to close the doors!
