I keep hearing over and over again: "If you could afford a C6, you should be able to afford a C7."

We'll see how that plays out.

I understand. But knowing myself, I'll want it fully loaded. It's the "accesories or packages" that I'm itching to know about. How much am I going to fork out for those.. Besides, it has got to have somewhat of a premium added to it.

Agree. Way over 60K will get me thinking... ruling in / ruling out options.

Z51 package might push it over $60k.

well if you stick with the 10% assumption (new tech, carbon fiber standard, a few extra ponies over the C6, blah, blah) and guesstimate the base at $55K then yes, the Z51 package would easily throw it over $60K. Hopefully after a year or so, we'll see the return of some serious discounting.

But really, if the C7 is going to be that good and GM sees it competing against the 911 then it still represents the performance bargain of the century. You can get stupid fast for about the same amount of money with a ZL1 or GT500. I just want to drive the thing and see how it feels. Is it truly a "sports car" to use the classic phrasing.

I get confused that they keep saying its going to be at least 450 HP/TQ.
Makes me hope that it will be higher to the 500 RWHP range.

Im not keen on the side markers either, but since Ive only owned red cars, that wont factor in at much

I wouldn't sweat those. The aftermarket guys will come up with clear/smoked/body colored replacements ASAP I'm sure. Personally, I'm probably going to get the euro spec mirrors with integrated turn signals but that's a pet peeve of mine (I want to make sure every idiot on the road yapping on a phone can see I'm turning, etc.).

I Love everything about her..... She finally has a standard "growl" to be proud of....that sound is gonna hurt the after-market dealers.

Dislike: The friggin wait.....and most likely the price. For me... 2LT is the only way I'll go and that is going to put me over 60K....not good. May not happen... Add the Z51 and ouch....easily upper 60s....tax not included!!

I agree with that. I have the body-colored LED markers from AAC on my Camaro and they're awesome.

Basically nothing to dislike, but if I had to pick it would be electric power steering. I hate the whole industry's conversion to it. Gimme good ole hydraulic!

I've driven both the F10 and F30 from BMW and they absolutely destroyed what was GREAT steering previously. Now, it's way too light and totally devoid of feedback. EPS can actually work well though - Audi/VW do a good job of it so it IS possible.

Exactly, all the reviews I keep reading for all these new cars with EPS is just scary... in a bad way.

Even the new 911's EPS though it's good, isn't as good as the previous hydraulic units

Here's hoping that manfuacturers get it fine tuned enough one day to match hydraulics

I would *love* to say that I *love* everything about it, but alas, I cannot. The rear looks like it was designed by LEGO - unlike the C6, which looked clean and neat, the C7 looks cluttered, and unintegrated.

Would this stop me from purchasing one? Probably not. But I think they could really benefit from cleaning up the look of the back a bit.

But beyond that, I absolutely love it.

I like the overall stying. I dislike the big hp. Hoping the 2015 "corvette coupe" with under 400 hp happens.
