"As fast"? So AWD + 100 HP is only worth "as fast"? Yet that's proof that AWD is superior?

Its brakes are also going to fade quicker with the extra weight, power, and speed.




So now you're...

Based on what, exactly? Even that 911 Turbo you love to bring up is *slower* around a track than a base 911 GT3 (not even the RS) despite being up 100 hp and having AWD...

The only thing AWD helps...

You guys really think this is going to just be a halo car? Was really hoping it might be a re-work of the Corvette, even at entry level. :/

*sigh* If not, oh well. Guess I'm out again.

The 911 Turbo also has a crapton of horsepower and a rear-engine setup, putting all its weight on the rear tires... But no one's denying AWD will make you faster from a dig in a straight line.

... So some blues/blacks/greys are new on the menu? In case the existing blues/blacks/greys weren't enough? Yawn. Why couldn't we have gotten something like this???

If it was a bright green or some type of metallic purple, that might be enough to get me to ditch my GT4 allocation and go with a Grand Sport, heh.

Overtime as a professional engineer? (not an intern) I didn't know such a thing existed.

Is this a weird Cali thing? Heh, either way, I think if you're making 100K, a Corvette is within reason...

That is either bad or outdated information. Chevy's official Corvette Grand Sport splash page very clearly states that the Grand Sport comes with the 14.6/14.4 brakes standard, and with the 15.5/15.3...

The Grand Sport to me is all of the good parts of the Z06 with none of the excess. I don't need 650 hp, but I could use a better chassis, tires, and more heat-resistant brakes.

Honestly even if...

You're right, but if the Z06 overheats on the track, my guess is that most aftermarket SC LT1s also will overheat if they come with a similar amount of power. It seems unlikely to me that the...

Unless I'm missing something, $8K over base is not $68.4K. That's nearly $8K over the base with Z51 (about $7K I guess). That's quite a large premium given what the GS apparently comes with.

If you could actually get a GT350R at MSRP, then I would go for that. Seems unlikely, though, and given the "market" prices that people are paying for the R, I think the Grand Sport will likely be a...
