The fully electric custom Corvette makes its presence felt in Los Angeles.

Its a nice car but running silent no matter how fast just isnt the same as the rumble of a Chevy V-8 and artificial sound piped in just isnt right like some vehicles do

Good looking car! But I think the price tag is somewhere around $750,000.

This interests me not at all, but in my dreams, I can get a manual C7 Grand Sport with a big cam, 8500rpm LT1 with a small battery under the cargo floor powering a motor in the torque tube, just off the trans, for short EV range and low RPM, below-cam torque fill. And all of this, with a 3LT interior, around 3300lbs.

A little too much in the add on body panel department, but an interesting car nonetheless.

I'm loving those carbon fiber wheels with the titanium lug nuts! (you'll have to go to the main page posting to see them). I'd like to see a straight on pic of the rear. Not sure if I love the taillights or hate em.

I love the idea of electric cars (so much torque!) but until they can get the recharge time down close to what it takes to fill up a gas tank I think it is going to be hard to have them be accepted by the masses. Unless a lack of oil/gas availability forces us to rethink our automobiles of course... that is why I thought hydrogen fuel cells would really take off but there must not be enough money in it yet.

Tesla has that battery swap jaunt at their supercharge stations where it changes out your battery in (ostensibly) less than the time it takes to fill up. Obviously that's not an option with this car, but I think the more Tesla takes off, the more prevalent that will become. Having to just straight up recharge it though is definitely inconvenient, especially if you're driving more than double the range, since that would mean you have to stop to charge twice.

I don't like the retro-round taillights.

Get a wrecked Bolt and a C7 that blew its engine (or had it stripped out by thieves) and you could do something somewhat similar for a lot less.

And you could avoid the tacky add-ons.

Default Good Times

Bob Dylan sang "The times they are a changin". My neighbor's twin 12 year old boys think the Tesla Model S down the block is the cat's meow. Our C7? Not so much. And so it goes.

Can someone explain why they have to make every electric car so ugly, why not just leave it the way it is, and for $750k I would rather buy a new aventador svj
