The problem with Corvettes, that I hope they've eliminated with the C7, is dealing with tire roar, terrible Chevy service departments, fit & finish issues (shrinking carpet, squeaky seats, etc) and cabin heat soak. But the worst thing about my 2008 Z06 was the fact that it was an incredibly fast car that just didn't feel like it was incredibly fast. Steering feel was numb, gearing was so long that you didn't get that kick-in-the-pants feel. And then there is the Corvette stigma - no matter how much you don't care, it still becomes an issue now and then.
The C7 is obviously a huge step forward from the C6, but they need to make the driver feel more connected to the car as I do in my GT-R. If they can fix that problem, and they can give me a turbo V8 for the next Z06 for under $80k, I'll consider selling the Nissan.
doubt the turbo v8 is gonna happen. some things are still sacred hopefully. big v8s, rear wheel drive and threesomes.
