Nobody drives away from the dealership in a 911 for only 90 grand either. Porsche does that with everything.

I didn't bring up the Cayman and 911 as examples of how Corvette should nickle and...

Maybe a sub-brand under the Chevrolet banner with 3 models: Base, Normal, Mid-engined super car. They all have Corvette logos and styling cues, but still get sold out of a Chevy dealership and are...

Older people buy Corvettes because youngins' normally can't justify dropping that much money on a car that has minimal practicality.



Thats part of the reason I think that if the Corvette...

I'm sure that some $25k truck truck loans are stretched out to 8 years too, and I'd bet those ones have a much higher risk of being defaulted on than for a loan worth 3 times as much.

For anybody...

Mr Dragoneye Wyndham, without knowing what sort of times to expect out of enthusiastic amateurs in kickass cars at mid Ohio ... I can't really say if you did folks proud or not.

I never knew that luxury trims were supposed to be a good value. I always assumed they were over priced indulgences for people who both like and can afford such things.

I don't think they've started building them yet. Normal model year change over is right about this time but I think I saw its a bit later for the 2019 Camaro (like August). Even then, it will still...

Its a great product if you don't have the slightest care for build quality or reliability. But by that measure, the Yugo is a pretty good car too.

I highly doubt its an EV being charged with jumper cables. For one thing, the Bolt has a ~200 mile range on a 60 kWh battery. Lets just say that this Corvette somehow manages similar efficiency. A...

You're assuming that nobody would be dying from having a driver being completely unresponsive at the wheel. I don't think thats a very sound assumption to make.

2019s are going into production right about now, so I'd bet against the 2021 models being a new generation. Plus, I think the CT5 is scheduled to be a 2020 model with the CT4 being a 2021. It would...

The grill looks like a Rolls Royce. And from the styling, I'd say its from the 1930s. So its probably a Phantom II

The car in the pictures looks a generation or so more modern than that Bentley. The fenders, the wind screen, the 'flow' of the bodywork ... it all looks a bit less crude.
