What is a 575LT? I don't believe you have your model #'s correct. They have a 570, 650 and a 675LT but not a 575!

I firmly believe that good business on GM's part will include an option for specific pattered luggage to go in the ME. This is not about the car, it's about the experience! Any added experience that...

I can hear him chuckling now! He no more works for GM then I do and calling him anything other then a dedicated gearhead is a waste of words. I've known him for decades and it's his meticulous nature...

If this car does not have at least an option for a magnificent sound system, it is a grand mistake. I understand the negatives such as weight, engine noise, etc. but the standard excuse is, well,...

Why do you think that offering a mid engine corvette will drop sales by 25,000 units?? All you have to come to terms with is what is said just above: The Mid Engined Zora model will be at the top of...

JVP & Skank - you two can fight this one out! I stand by my question and assure you that I was not attempting to hide an inquiry about forged wheels in it anywhere. It was sincere and frank. Let me...

Thank you! I realize that the raw, bottom line for this question revolves around the cost of a vehicle but a lot of the options and accoutrements of a car are relative to that. Center Lock forged...

I had this very conversation with Mike Furman and he basically told me that the manufacturers try, and succeed with greater frequency, to get it right the first time these days. You are so correct,...

Why is it so hard to see the obvious? GM likely has little or no intention of eliminating any of it's current offerings. Corvettes come under the heading of "cash cow." The evolution of the entire...

I don't know how any reasonable man could argue that. That would be cutting off their nose to spite their face. It simply does not make any sense at all for them to eliminate the front engine...

I am not questioning Mr. Delorenzo's connections. Quite the contrary, I applaud them! I am skeptical, however, that this car can be produced for the low amount that he's stated.

As for the price being within $10,000 of a C7, I'm afraid the proof will be in the announcement. His statement that "I will be amazed with what GM has done with the pricing on the cars" is nothing...

Don, I had a Porsche 911S Cabriolet on order and I just canceled it to wait for the ME. I'm tickled with the offer of MacCallan 18. Let's see if they say anything at the April bash.

Personally, I do not want an early car. I want a second year of production so that they can iron out any bugs. I'd rather have a year 3 production C8 but that's getting on in life.

I fear that you are a state in of denial about this price. GM simply cannot create what we've seen in the exposed leaks for anything close to that money. We are in nosebleed territory with all of the...
