A dealer I called here said he was getting 6. Maybe he meant sex.

That ZR1 will be sweet! My pops had a 1991 ZR1 back in the day and that car was so much fun on the street/strip/racetrack. I think he misses that car.

Those who have seen my replies know I love the mpgs on the 335....all that power and torque, and 29-31 mpg on the highway.

The C6 and Z06 are just as impressive....imagine, the ZR1 will be the first vette to be subject to a gas guzzler tax (600+ HP, guess it's ok). Imagine if BMW and Mercedes had a car with Z06 performance and that fuel economy.....

just FYI: there was an article in Winding Road that quoted Nissan employees saying that 6000 per year is more like what the US will see on a yearly basis.

The 1500 number is to generate hype.

Does this mean that 1500 for both US and Canada or just US? I might put down a deposit and see how my 335xi feels. If I like the 335xi, i'll sell my spot.

I think its 1500 for 2008 only. In the years to come, they are going to send us more.
