i really don't care though but i have a feeling that a lot of the people screaming about wanting an automatic are doing it for the above reason lololol, i think that's hysterical, maybe cause i'm not married. lololol




i personally would want to see the car be kept in just a manual version. i feel like it adds to the persona of the car.

Well, selfishly, I gotta say, I already have my car so it's not gonna change my life if GM doesn't sell that many ZL1s.

It's not that I dont' have faith in the new GM. It's just that I see them not offering the auto tranny and I see more autos being sold in the SS and so I wonder whta the heck their thinking is.

Now, in all fairness, I have noticed and said myself that most of the stock time slips in the top ten are LS3s and that's because 80% of the cars AT THE DRAG STRIP are LS3s. So maybe GM is thinking in this fasion. But I still say think they's sell more autos.

I don't how to vote. I like manual trans, but the automatic will help probaly sell more cars. I want to see these sell faster then the gt500. On the other hand,it is kinda setting a stanard.

dont wanna get too off topic but i

just wondering here. who cares if this car sells more then the GT???

seriously?!?!
do you people work for GM? Do you guys own that much stock in the company?

it looks like GM has built a beast of a car. this version of the car looks bad ass. Hopefully they don't do what most car companies do, which is to end up offering a watered down version of the concept as a production model !! that's what you guys should be worried about, not worried about outselling the damn mustang !!

WHO CARES !! Are you guys gonna pull up to cruise nights with Tshirts that say "We outsold the GT !!"

come on !!

I buy GM stock (i.e. LS-based cars) so that I can keep buying them in the future. No profit, no awesome cars. Look what happened to Pontiac and their top-performers, the GTO and G8 GXP: poor marketing = bankruptcy.

How many guys that voted could actually afford the car to begin with? Let's be honest here, there are people bitching about this car that have the LS model.

I don't get comments like this at all. The CTS-V auto is faster than the manual. Why does having the faster car make you less of a man? Because you don't have to be driven insane on rush hour city commutes clutching and rowing?

And I am not biased here, I own a 2010 2SS/RS with a M6. I love it, but if I am gonna trade/sell the SS for a FASTER model, why wouldn't you want the options that make it even faster? If I am gonna take the leap and spend that kind of money, I am going all out.

If GM decides not to offer an auto would I get the manual? Yeah, but I sure would prefer the slush.

The auto CTS-V was also faster around the Nurburgring than the manual. Don't even NEED to heel toe. Not to mention with the pedal placement in the current M6's you need size 3 feet to be able to do it.

im not bashing you auto guys, i know todays autos are faster shifting that a human shifted manual, its is just my personal opinion that you are removing part of the "driver" aspect when you go with an auto... again my Very biased opinion

I get your point, ODN, but modern vehicles also have ABS, stability control and a million other techno nannies in them. People want the highest performance possible, and nowadays the simple truth is that computers can out perform 99% of the driving population.

I like to think they (the techno-nannies) let the driver get even more involved in the experience cause you don't have to worry about threshold braking and power bands and all that crap.

You can just hammer down and perma-grin. All. Day. Long.
