I agree, your search and proof of these C7s is making think about getting one myself one day in the future. It seems like a lot of car for relatively little money and great on the track.
Another car I'm eyeing in a year is the Cayman S that's about to come out. It's looking pretty good, power to weight ratio wise. Another handy track car. Completely different of course from the C7, but another kind of good different.
Too many dang cars and too little time...
