They're fostering the community that they need to foster from a business perspective though. You need to stop looking at it as myopically as you are. There are significantly more non-track rats...

It's amazing how short-lived the forum's memory is. Let's rewind to the tail end of 2008 and beginning of 2009. That's right: almost 10 years ago. The C6ZR1 gets introduced and the vast majority...

Your question is a bit all over the place here. First "Would you move to...?" and then "is it worth it?"

Would I move to it? Had I the funds, I wouldn't hesitate for half a second. No question...

Go ahead and keep debating this topic with the guy that has a direct line to the entire Corvette engineering team. :-)

The rest of the car isn't, though. But, as others have said: it's his car, he can do what he likes with it. Were I in the used market, I'd avoid his cars like the plague though.

FWIW, this likely isn't an "early production" thing and will probably be that way throughout the run of the car.

And no, we won't be seeing a "dual wing" option. Like the Z06/Z07 option, the wing...

You had me until the "don't drive it!" part. Good grief. Take it, and DRIVE IT! Get the break-in miles on it. The first 500 or so miles have to be done at a "take it easy" pace, so go for it. ...

Let's ease up on the hyperbole here. It's not helping anything. More than likely, this was a problem in the shipping of the parts, not something done at the factory.

Well that's just the problem: this is a replacement part (that was damaged) and those wings are in incredibly short supply. As in: non-existent.

Let's be completely clear here: GM isn't going to "keep production low" on purpose. That's not a game they play, unlike, say, other manufacturers. They'll build as many ZR1s as are ordered,...
