Congratulations! You are now on my forum Ignore List. I suggest others do the same.

Don't bother responding. I won't see it.

This is a prime example of how in California we are bombarded by propaganda from the ruling party and the media, that people start believing it. This is really surprising to me, given we all have...

Thanks for the fake news.

Go ahead and tell NHTSA, IIHS and every automaker on the planet that they are wasting their time and money on side curtain airbags.

It is not a matter of whether or not the Vette handles well, but rather under what conditions does the handling start to fall apart. It's a matter of what compromises were made to the suspension to...

CARB spends $700 million a year in taxpayer money, and accomplishes nothing that the EPA isn't already doing. They have outlived their usefulness. They have people working there with fake degrees,...

Maybe it's not caused by twist along the longitudinal axis of the car, but torque generated at the wheels bending the body.

I'm not surprised. The roof of the car has a big hole in it.

For all practical purposes, the Targa top is not used. I know we have a vociferous contingent on here who will tell us how much they...

The fact that so many people are offended if you call a DCT an automatic, tells you all you need to know why dropping the manual transmission would be a mistake. Even the people who are buying an...

I get your point, but I really can't see anyone walking if the C8 looked like the F8 just because it didn't hold a pile of golf bags. People are very good at rationalizing away shortcomings if they...

Indirectly, that's true. If Marketing says it has to hold 10 golf bags, then the designers are hamstrung to deliver a mid-engine car that holds 10 golf bags, and it starts looking less and less like...

Sad, but true. The thing GM forgets is car purchases are emotional decisions, and that's amplified even more for sports cars. If the C8 looked the F8, people will buy it no matter what amount of...

If management wants Ferrari like styling, they should just send the design job to an Italian studio.

Yes, the F8 looks incredible.

Your points are only valid for you. They are not valid for everybody. You are not an early adopter. We get it. If you took a few minutes to do the math, you would see that the lease on the three...

I'm not sure what mission you are on here, but the auto manufacturers and filling stations are just getting started. I seem to recall the same things being said about the first cell phones.

I have a C5, and the fit and finish of the C7 isn't even close, not on the outside or the inside. The dash feature line NEVER lines up with the door on the C7. What happened to the BG plant quality...

The droop in the middle of the rear isn't particularly flattering to begin with. Accentuating it with an even droopier spoiler is just crazy.

It's not just range that would be cut. It would be the maximum output of the batteries for acceleration and top speed. Push the current too high, and heat goes up, as well as, battery degradation. ...
