Uhh well...





I know what you mean though. I doubt we'll see one for a while, if ever again.

I will say this: GM seems hell bent on doing at least something RWD again. There's a lot of chatter about Alpha and possibly developing a flexible, scalable RWD platform below Alpha.

I'm still on the fence with the styling of that cts. Something about it just didn't catch my eye. Chevys seems to be a little cheaper to have worked on at the stealership as well.

When can we expect to see higher end versions of the Stingray? Something equivalent to the Z01.

I agree. I love the front but the back of the coupe looks odd for some reason. Cadillac stealerships really need to step it up compared to other luxury brands. The service and respect that I get when I bring my Dad's Benz in is outstanding, yet when I go to Cadillac I feel like I walked into a chevy dealer.

What's a Z01?
The Z51 is the higher end as of now.

ZR1 you mean?

They're coming. GM's probably working on the engines as we speak. For now I'm sure they're just trying to get the Stingray/Z51 models into production.

They know. Trust me, they're working on it.

I hope so. Then I might be able to convince him to get back into a GM car

Woops...typo...I meant ZR1. Sigh

I guess my question is...will it be 1-2 years before we see one?

I sure hope not. GM needs something to put the Viper in its place (again)

Speaking of high performance Vettes, do you think the Gen V LS7 replacement will be a 427? (Please say yes )
