That being said it still has...

Basically you are getting a ZR1 for only a few thousand more than the outgoing Z06.

That will only happen if you compare a 4 cylinder turbo to the current SS with a V8 and you are the first I think to even suggest 600 pounds. That would mean an SS at 3,300 pounds. That isn't going...

What you are seeing is simply holes or mesh in the vinyl. Those aren't lamp openings. Light positions are tucked under the Camo. I am pretty sure the final lamps aren't on these cars yet.

I could see one more variant. A super track focused Corvette. Premium materials for lower weight. Not anything I could afford mind you but definitely something highly lustworthy.

The 500 pounds (pipe dream by the way) mostly comes from being smaller. If not then it's premium materials that will jack the price to stratospheric levels.

GT500 is not a better car than the Camaro. It might be if they do a new version or the GT350 replaces it. But the Gen6 will step up again.
