Spider (Convertible) is only cool to me if it offers a roll bar, pop up or otherwise. That's a pretty important feature for a vehicle that is so capable imo.

When my 88 year old grandma begin rocking black wheels on her Camry about 5 years ago, I knew they had lost their pizzaz.

If two cars have equal acceleration, but one gets a jump and is already .5 second ahead, it will still be .5 second ahead at the finish. The thing is that at 130 mpg, .5 second covers a lot of ground...

I believe the car cladding has big lumps of foam at the end of the tail to throw us all off. No way the rear deck is that long and clumsy looking.

Can you expound on this?

When I track, or even canyon carve in my manual C6, I certainly pre-select the gear I am going to be exiting in. 450 tq starting around 3K makes this rather easy ime. This...

Great project and a perfect little engine if you ask me.

Unless the C8 just blows me away, I'm going to bring a C7 GS to you guys for a proper NA engine in the next couple of years.
