I'm guessing exotic supercar owners also belong to members-only courses who store their clubs for them.

Also maybe they don't sell 30k a year like Corvette hopes to because they don't have storage.

I've never argues the car shouldn't be performance. You seem to think that because I hold the belief that 80% or Corvette buyers couldn't tell you a dang thing about Nurburgring or how it fared in a...

Amongst whom? If a GT350R really went out there and ran better lap times, would the Corvette really have that bad of a repuatation? I admit, if your $30k base Mustang is beating up on a $60k Grand...

Nah, dealers want C7s cleared out before C8s show up. C7s sitting on dealers lots is not GMs problem, it is a dealer problem. Those cars are owned by the dealers, not GM, and if they are no longer...
