The Edmunds video's best part was the revelation that this Vette did 1.08g. That's nuts, especially considering that it's the base model (not a Z06 or ZR1). The only flaw is that it looks like it was designed by a hormonal 14 year old boy who is into comic books.

Will it only come in manual or is there going to be a DCT one as well? With DCT it'd be a monster on the track.

There is a choice of a 7-sp manual and a 6-sp automatic. There is no DCT as of right now. Rumor has it GM is working on an 8sp auto that will match or better a DCT.

After watching the review, i am still not ready to jump on the corvette wagon. i would however consider a c7 Z06. Thats really the only corvette i like. I just hate how mainstream corvettes are.

I like the Motortrend review best so far. I'm totally on the Corvette bandwagon

I don't find the car hideous considering everything on it is functional...fact. Or at least that's what they say.

maybe i should have stated, vettes are very main stream in my area.

I dont see many e9x m3 or even e46 m3s. I see more C7 vettes on the road than i do M3s. I don't even think vettes are open to the public yet lol. but really i am not kidding about that C7 thing. saw 2 last week.

True location is big but generally the m3 is a very mainstream car all over

Come down to a city like Houston, TX and you will run into plenty of M3's both E46 and E9x. This is considering that Texas is very much a muscle car heaven.

Also, I never get people who buy cars for exclusivity. Its like trying to prove to others I am better then you because I have a car that no one else has. Who cares.....LOL.

If you are the only one who owns a car that is not so great then it is still not a good car no matter how you cut it. A great car is a great car no matter how many people own it period. Plus, the fun is modifying the car to make it look like yours. To give it that personal touch.

I have never been into Corvettes but this is the first one that is designed with some stylish functional aggressiveness in exterior. Also, the interior belongs in a $50K plus car. So looking forward to driving one in person.

No but I would bet within a couple of thousand of the current Z06... which is consistent with the current car vs the C6.

Noticed in your signature that you have a Stingray on order. When are you expecting it? Can't wait to hear about your user experience.

Being from Canada, we are getting ours after the US orders. I don't expect delivery until February/March... which means it will sit in the garage until April.
