Yea I agree with you here. Skill is an important factor but these type accidents tell you little about the drivers skill.
They tell you more about the drivers mind-set or maturity than anything.

Do you have any verification of that? It is my understanding that one very big forum dealer has been able to secure an allocation for every ZR1 he's had a customer for. The numbers are on track for...

Viper sales were never high, and the car never made money for the company. The main reason for low sales was probably that it was very low on the user-friendliness scale, for street driving. The...

For those ranting about golf being useless should this be titled "1.6 ft x 1.6 ft x 4 ft luggage space" or "10 cubic feet luggage space"?

I'm an avid golfer (single-digit handicap) and have carried my clubs in both my previous C6s and my current C7. Corvettes are golf friendly. But people buy them for various reasons. The Corvette just...

To dismiss cargo space in the Corvette as a selling point, would be a fools assumption. The amount of space in the Corvette sets it apart, and was an absolute point of interest for me. If you remove...

I suspect GM will find a way to make this Corvette a mid engine car with more cargo space than any other mid engine. It will still be less than what we are accustomed to.

That's fine with me. I...

Buying a car while being concerned about resale value is a terrible idea.

Buy it.

Drive it.

Enjoy it.

If your one remaining concern is resale value before you even have the car, maybe you shouldn't buy it. You're already visualizing selling it in your own mind. That's not much of a commitment. Go all...

Yes, I do agree it is a marketing issue, but it's sad commentary on the gullibility of the average consumer who only looks at HP. I find it comical that 20 extra HP confers bragging rights when...

Hey, I'll tell you right now, if I can't load up a C8 with enough stuff for my wife and I to take a 2-week cross country trip similar to my C7, that's a deal-breaker. We buy food/drinks and stuff on...

As for HP numbers versus weight numbers, I think you have to look at the use case for the vast majority of sports cars sold. VERY few are being driving to their limit on track where a few hundred...

Don't get me wrong, I *believe* the C8 is coming, and that it'll be a rear mid-engined car. But I have to chuckle when us forum-ites rumor about reveal dates, prices, hybrid/not hybrid, etc. based...

First thing that came to mind when I saw it was the Houston Texans logo. I think this C8 totally missed the mark like the initial LA Charger logo. IMO the C7 logo has been the best. One thing I hope...

Yup, that's modified for...

There's an outsized proportion of M7 buyers vs automatic buyers when buying new C7 Corvettes on this forum. That's the reason why.
