Good job Chevy. I hope this new vette motivates nissan.

I just can't get over the looks. Wish I could as it seems to be a great car.

Pretty amazing car. I may look into trading my z06 in a few years, depending on what high performance versions may follow

There will be a lot of people who can... Myself included. It looks great in white!

They stepped up the game, it can only mean good things for the next generation of sports cars from other OEM's.

The thing I can't get over is that they achieved 1.11g on a base model corvette with 285 rear tires! (Yes I know.. Z51 package). Only means great things in store for the higher spec models.

They said the car LIKES slip angle...
We're done here... They don't know what slip angle is... If they WANTED slip angle, they'd put monster truck tires on it...

I just lost a LOT of respect for MT... You can't put terms in there and assume the customer doesn't know what they mean

Umm, I don't know if you know what slip angle means...

Also, what he meant was that the car was more predictable at higher slip angles.

I know exactly what it means, it was the original reason why Firestone made low profile tires for racing with Chaparral.

But saying "the car likes slip angle" isn't the same as more predictable at higher slip angles. And I believe the magic number is 6 degrees, you don't want higher (or lower for that matter) and you can lower the slip angle with tires with more rigid sidewalls, so, don't say the CAR likes the slip angle, say I like that these tires flex to give me more of a slip angle... (Although I have NO IDEA why you'd necessarily like more)

I'm sorry, but this is the ugliest Corvette I've ever seen.

It may have the performance, but I'd never be caught dead driving one.

I'm somewhere in the middle of you and haboob. I think Chevy needed to keep more of the C7 concept integrity. I think certain colors make this car ugly and others make it look decent. But if I bought this vette? It would be for performance reasons and not looks. I would completely black out the vette.:tup:
