Crazy. That's only 5k more than the MSRP on my 135i. They will most likely have a huge stealership markup at the beginning.

Nope. I would consider an older Z06. No desire to spend my money on a new anything really.

Good luck. I wouldn't be surprised to see them going for $10k over sticker for a while.

Different strokes for different folks I guess. It's an awesome car at a reasonable price but I could never own one. It's too... Corvettey.

Mine will be coming as soon as the dealer can get it

Lots of speculation that power will be 475 and weight is under 3,300lbs. That's a fantastic power to weight ratio!! GM is saying it is 4 to 5 seconds faster around VIR than the current Grand Sport... that puts it close to Z06 performance!! Along with the new interior... I'm excited.

I actually like the new front treatment--very nice F12 Ferrari look to me. Back end seems overdone. Also love the carbon fiber roof and upgraded interior. Performance and value will also be strong. I'm sure they will sell a lot of these cars.

Incredible numbers. However, it's still an ugly American Ferrari copy.

wow. amazing value for the money. though i do hate the camaro styled rear. and i hope the interior gets a massive rework from the c6. but other than that it is quite a great deal. i'd definitely take this any day over those ridiculously overpriced 911.

Well thats one of the things i dislike, its more of a exotic then Corvette. Performance value on the C6 was pretty good, and this follow.

No question it is a great value, tons of performance to a relatively low price. But I don't buy cars b/c I think they're a great value. I have nothing against Corvettes but I'd never buy one. My wife points out they're an old man car, total mid-life crisis purchase. She'd rather have me spend $100K+ on something else, rather than half that on a 'vette.
