Fortunately, I own both a C7 and a 32-year-old mid-engine Ferrari... the Vette does everything better other than tactility, sheer road feel, and steering and suspension feedback..... 80-110 on back roads in the Ferrari is a delight. Unless one is pushing the $hit out of the Vette it's as exciting as a Buick..... (no offense meant to Buick)....

Slingerland, Ludwig, Rogers and DW for now and forever. Do you still play? I'm assuming the Elvis paintings were of the velvet type?

Some people just cannot appreciate quality when they see it.

Verte drummer your Pista is gorgeous inside and out.

You got great taste.

Car is truly a master piece and rolling art.

There are 2-3 on this forum that would tell you how insecure you must be and how a Corvette is a supercar😜. I however do not fall into that camp. You have one beautiful supercar

We all get use to how things look. Even if a brand new Vette initially is just as attractive as a Ferrari the fact that you eventually see them daily sort of dulls your reaction to them. They are less exclusive and the swoops and curves no longer wow you.

That's just my opinion anyways as I can't think of one common car that after some time looks as amazing as an exotic. There are a few cars that sold poorly, that look great. Not because they are expensive but just because their rarity allowed them to remain exotic. Mid 1980s Mitsubishi Starion looks more exotic and racy to me than a Ferrari of the same era, and it was just a $17K car that never took off. 2nd gen RX7 is another.

That's just an unbelievable automobile. Certainly one can just look at depreciation as their primary cost to own this piece of machinery, however starting at $350K it's just so far outside of what I could spend for a vehicle, it doesn't even register. My father has net worth of a low 7 figure amount and I thought it weird that he spent that kind of money on a car (Bentley) so I think I'd have to be pretty darn rich to spring for something like that.

The guy that mentioned that he DDed two Ferraris is my freakin hero. To me, that's when you can truly afford a car, when you take it to the grocery store and everywhere else and aren't trying to save **** for the next guy. Badass!

NO! Just No.
It's a design Ferrari should have aborted.
