Exactly the response GM is hoping for

If they release the version in the pictures that'll be insane! Hope they don't "water it down" the last minute.

WOW! I see they got rid of the chrome "mouth brace" in the grille, and does that seam in the roof panel suggest that the Z06 will now have a removable roof panel?? The front grille now looks a bit off due to the cooling cutouts (presumably for brakes) rather than the mouth brace, but it's still an improvement. I wonder if it would have looked even better if they'd done away with the grille entirely and just left a hole like the new GT500, but it's not big deal -- and it may well look better in person.

I'm really not crazy about that carbon fiber front splitter, though. I'm sure it's 100% functional, but it really pulls focus from the rest of the front fascia IMHO (kind of like the aero bits on the rear of the 918 Spyder that stick out on an otherwise gorgeous back end), plus that thing will probably be a scrape nightmare on the road. The smaller carbon fiber lip on the C6 ZR1 gave lots of owners fits when driving on regular roads, and it definitely wasn't cheap to replace.... I'm also not sure about the carbon fiber rear spoiler; I'll have to see it in person.

Still, if I'm going to give up my M3 for anything else in a few years (definitely won't be the new M3/4 for various reasons), it will very likely be this.

Can't wait for all the gory technical details!! And if the price is in the $80-85K range, they'll have a winner.

I would get one if I can get it completely debadge. I just hate American cars. But this one is sick!
What is the price on this and are idiots still willing to pay $10, 000-20, 000 over sticker? How long does that that shit last? How about the ZR1? What's the price and when is it coming out? What is the current reliability ratings on the Corvettes recently? I want it completely debadge though! I hope its possible. I have been trashing Corvettes and Mustang with a redneck friend of mine who loves the gt500 but can't afford one but will criticize my M3.


If I would be considering a Corvette, I feel I should also consider the Lexus LC-F. At least I know it will last forever since it may not compete performance wise.

Who says you have to give up your M3?!!!

I will keep mine in addition to a new purchase. I just have two more months to pay off my M3 and it will be my weekend car and the new Corvette/ LEXUS LC-F/ F83 M3 will be my daily driver. Just as my current E90 M3 is.

I think the C7 is in general a good value and the best C car ever. I did get to see a lot of these lately (not Zo6 of course) in L.A. and up close , and can't help to think that rear end is not designed well. It's a combination of the weird forced spoiler, mascara taillights, and that it seems to rise/be higher than the overall car. I miss the round tail lights, hope they bring it back. I guess in black, the mascara taillights would blend in a bit. Only bit of the rear I like is the quad exhaust, a unique C-car touch.

Expect to pay far over sticker..for awhile.

I don't think a ZR1 will be produced. The Z07 pretty much covers everything. This is what I've heard.

Wow crazy numbers and almost too much power. I mean you have to mod it right. Haven't been keeping up, is this car supercharged?

With a car like this you'd have to take it to the track, but it would no doubt scare me. I'd turn into that slow guy around the turns and quick down the straights.
