Knock it off you two (you know who you are). Nobody wants to watch a couple of grown men bicker on the internet.

I think his problem is with people saying things like this:

Where the performance figures quoted are conflated with the price mentioned, when its fairly unlikely that the cost of a C8+Z51 is still...

I mentioned something along those lines in another thread. That the C8 is intended to attract a much younger buying base.

I'm kinda similar. Its an impressive achievement. And, while I doubt there will be many Ferrari owners jumping ship, I bet the Cayman's marketshare is going to shrivel.

And? The base price is what everything else builds off of. Nobody is excited about it because they have exactly $60,000 in their bank account ready to be spent on a C8. They're happy because its not...

I've seen dry weight quoted a bit with European cars, though in my googling it seems like its normally used for motorcycles.

They'd almost certainly know the curb weight, since they'd have to...

Oh sure they do. VW owns Lambo and Audi. Fiat owned Ferrari for ages. If they ever wanted to build in volume, they could do so with ease.

They don't because then it dilutes the brand. Production...

On the age thing, it feels like they are pushing for younger buyers with the C8 (and to a lesser extent, the C7). If they can attract a new generation of buyers ... so what if it doesn't appeal to...

Agreed. Like you two, and others, have said: it sounds to me like LT2 is more of an LT1 replacement than a special upper tier engine.

However, if it requires the new electrical architecture GM...

They usually are for a mid-rear engined car. They normally carry 40% or less of the overall weight, so sticking big tires out front doesn't do much.

It varies. I think normally the curb weight is...
