IMHO, you don’t need a M series SUV to have an all around more sporty SUV than anything GM offers. Focusing on the Urus while ignoring the direct competition like the Explorer Sport, Edge Sport, ST,...

Corvette is not a “brand”. It is a model. Period. Full stop.

It being a “brand”’would allow a SUV, a FE, etc. but creates its own set of problems too.

What brand? Chevrolet? A $100k base Corvette would not kill the brand. It might kill the car, but not the brand.

Well, technically is there a DCT transaxle (other than the Porsche 918 (Or Agera) unit) that can handle that much torque? Pretty rarefied requirements.

I think that the "new Corvette buyer" is exactly what Chevy is banking on and the reason for the switch to ME. If they can get Porsche buyers to switch, that's a huge win. If they can get folks...
