    They should put CUE from Cadillac in the new Corvette, they can call it Corvette User Expierience.

    I swear that 427 is the sweetest sounding engine period. I'm excited to see the C7 ZR1 match the Ferrari F12 and the Z07 match the 458.

    They will put a CUE derivative in the next Corvette...

    Cannot wait for the next Vette...will be awesome and shame even more "super cars" costing four times as much.

    Cobalt, you beat me to it. Listen to the last 20 seconds of that video. THAT is a religious experience. Absolute pure sex. Lord in heaven.....I've been fortunate to be an instructor for a lot of DE (Drivers Ed) track day events, and have driven a lot of awesome cars at speed on track. Ferrari's do indeed have that wonderful SCREAM. But, they are so damn fragile I try to stay away from them because I had two blow up while I was driving with the owner in the passenger seat. Meanwhile, You can't freaking kill a Corvette. The sound of a Z06 being driven hard on a road course is absolutely heaven. I love my Viper, but I do need to brake down and add a Z06 to the garage. Awesome cars.

    I wish there would not be such a delay in bringing out the new Zo6 or Zr1.

    Bring it out to compete with the new Viper

    I'm no GM exec but I can't see the market tolerating "several years" before the "specialized" models make their debut.

    We've all gotten used to the presence of both the Z06 and, to a lesser extent, the ZR1 being relatively commonplace when it comes to comparative availability.

    Not being rhetorical, how long does it take Porsche to bring the various 911 models to market once the base model is introduced?

    Re: CAR and DRIVER 2013 Corvette ZR1 vs. 2013 Corvette Z06

    I honestly don't believe this will be the case. As the owner of both a ZO6 and a ZR1, I am not at all interested in a base Corvette. At 67 years of age, I don't have years to wait for the C7 ZO6 or ZR1......I cannot imagine that Corvette would kill the ZR1 after 2013, especially when all the others in the world class sports car field are continuing to shoot for more and more hp..

    It takes Porsche years. The new 911 has been out a year, the S just dropped, no Turbo(s), GT2(3).

    Yes but they also have a Boxster. I'd still like a Vette-ster (Soltice replacement) to join the Corvette family.

    Do you think people will lament the C6Z or ZR1 10 years from now when the C7 is "old" ?? I never really liked the C5Z and never missed it. But I do think the C6Z looks so good that it will be missed. I'm talking about mainly the appearance..... The present car still looks so good to me. I think I WILL miss it.

    Nice clip. Although, if we could only hear less of him talking and more exhaust rumble it would have been more pleasing to my ears.

    This is one of the better reviews I have ever seen.

    Also, if you think we will see a ZO6 or ZR1 immediately with the C7, well I just don't agree with you.
