He's new and has already demonstrated a remarkable penchant for leading with...

1. That car probably costs $500,000 if not more.

2. That car has no usability or cargo requirements at all.

3. We haven't seen the uncovered C8 because it's not 7/18/19.

I like Ferraris,...

You will be very hard-pressed to find anyone who has owned both C6 and C7 who will say the C7 was not "a worthy upgrade." I owned a C6 Z51 and C6 Z06, and have had two C7 Z51s. The C7 is a far better...

What you would do is certainly important, but you only speak for yourself. There are hundreds of thousands of Corvette owners out there and they may not do things the way you do them. I know I don't

It is a unique car that no one, except GM, is currently making.

Corvette value proposition

Fast.
Well built.

As they say, choose 2.
