I was going to get a ZL1 but when I heard about the new Corvette coming I decided to wait and see what it will look like and how much power they will have. I think the main reason I didn't jump on a Z was because my wife would of kicked my ass after I just bought a 2013 Platinum Escalade a month ago. The C7 will be my Camaros replacement..

current figures for the LT1 are roughly 450hp/450tq out of a high-compression, direct-injected 6.2L - the new LT1

Chevy is going to unveil the C7 in January but production isn't going to begin until the 3rd quarter of 2013. Now that's going to be a long wait.

And yes, supposedly it's going to be smaller and lighter than the C6.

I'm anxiously waiting to see what the uncamo'd C7 looks like as well. If it was going to look like the Concept Stingray, my mind would be made up and I'd be ready to order one, but it won't, so I'll have to wait until Jan 13 to make my mind up depending on looks AND power to weight.

according the the vette forums...its not much smaller at all...talking inch. Some have said its a tad longer wheelbase wise. Nothing certain yet that I have found. I do know they were testing the chassis under a C6 body at one time...so its close.

For me there are just too many unknowns on the C7. I like everybody else am waiting but I think the C7. the 450hp could work if the car is lighter. I mean 3000lb curb wieght and that 450 would be nice.

The ZL1 to me is the best looking camaro since 1969. the renderings of the C7 to me are not doing that. I think the C6 Z06 looks better than the C7 stuff I have seen to date to me.

hopefully there are revisions and the finished product looks better. the c7 Z06 might be the answer. the 2005 C6 does not comare in my eyes looks wise to a 2006 Z06. took them a year to get that right.

Going to look at a black f430 today. Trolling with the girlfriend's car just to see how much they jerk me around thinking I can't afford it . Will let you guys know how it goes.

haha, i just found that on a quick google image page.
but, GM already said the stingray concept was only an engineering daydream; they'd never actually produce it.

Guess what? You will all come to like the newC7 just like you have every other Corvette. Yes, some better than others. But at the time, you liked them!

Took a long look at the f430 and took a drive. It was awesome, but not very livable and a little over the top. That's what I liked about the MRC in the Caddi/ZL1, very livable while performing great. Driving the f430 really convinced me I am looking for a GT car instead of a supercar. A friend of mine is going to loan me his DB9 coupe for a few days next week so we'll see how that goes. I don't think I can wait long enough for the c7 z06. If the DB9 doesn't fit the bill the last on my list is the R8 v10.
