But will destroy any lotus around a racetrack outside a parking lot with cones set up on it.
Also hard to determine a cars look from drawing renditions of what some assume it will look like. I'm thinking it's going to be stunning in real life.

Cool, but my comment was only on appearance and based on the photo (rendering?) above.

We've seen mid engine, Corvette motored cars with huge track potential and questionable looks before. Consulier and Mosler weren't exactly huge success stories. Chevrolet still needs to get the styling right, regardless of performance.

You're right about styling but what Chevrolet will do is a long way from those abortions and not really comparable. Im sure the upcoming design will be fine. As we know there's always some that will complain but you can't make everyone happy. I look forward to seeing and test driving one.

This is a boutique manufacturer that was driven by the owner (he didn't care one bit about how the car looked, he just wanted it to perform).

GM is not a boutique manufacturer. They're not going to mess this up.

I don't know why but it looks exactly like a GM - mid engine or not. The front end looks too much like a Camaro. Maybe the guy who drew this is a GM guy.

There is something about GM design. All their cars look like they came out from Nashville instead of a proper automotive design studio.
