Not bad, but besides Rick Hendricks & Tom Peters, couldn't they have gotten more experienced drivers to give input on the car? The more info I read about, the more I want this car. *closes eyes and prays for a miracle*

what i find odd about a lot of the press coverage i'm seeing is they're acting like this car is such a giant leap from the previous car. I mean, when the C5 was introduced, That was a bigger leap, in terms of the C4 being around 14 years, having a real hard ride, being really hard to get in and out of.

what i'm saying is this new car has improved upon the C6 in some ways, but some of the coverage is acting like the Corvette has been neglected for decades.

Many visualize the C5 and C6 as basically the same car. Yes I understand how they're not the same. But I can see how they are also both very alike so the C7 is like a huge revamp to most.
