    - Dual trunks can hold 2 golf bags, ample luggage for road trips
    - Removable roof panel stores in the trunk
    3. Standard paddle shift 8-speed DCT with Electronic shift
    4. LT2 small-block V8 with dry sump oil system
    5. Strong Aluminum structure with Carbon Fiber components

    Six seat belt colors seems like we're dreaming at this point.

    Really??? This far out and you can pick out seatbelt colors, car covers, wheel centercaps, even Adam's polishes, yet the only performance stat we have is 0-60 in under 3 seconds??? It's a performance car, show me the numbers!! I guess they're more catering to the Cars & Coffee crowd, showing off how they bought every carbon fiber accessory in the book. Track times??? Psshtt, might get a rock chip.

    Tadge said they're still dialing in the track performance with the modes so it'll be closer to release that we get more concrete numbers.

    I'd think they should have some ballpark numbers by now they can share. When Dodge unveiled the Demon they had full numbers, and I think I recall other projects where they released other numbers early and dropped better ones later.

    Corvette envy issues? Really? Wanting to know if this highly touted change to rear engine was worth it is "envy issues"? Can't be because I'm an engineer and like hard data and numbers, is it??? With all the complaining by GM about being limited by the front engined platform, I was hoping for numbers that just blow away previous numbers. I also expect it to blow away the ACR Viper, which didn't seem to be limited by the engine being up front. I couldn't care less about the MSRP inflators.

    Is this better? "Oooohhhh, shiny, aaahhhhh, carbon fiber!"

    I took my car to a show last night. Of the ~20 Corvettes there, over half were C7s.
    I wish they all could be California squirrels!
    Past Rides: 2003 Grand Am GT1 (saved me), 1995 Bonneville SLE (RIP), 1986 635 CSi, 1984 Estate Wagon, 1978 Malibu Classic, 1978 Corvette, 1975 Vega Kammback (Miss ya'), 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger (STFU...it got me there!)

    Oh, I dont doubt they have numbers but we're still a good bit out from release. Let them drag it out. They've done a fantastic job so far except for the super boring intro videos.

    Uh, that is the darker blue, Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic. In that picture, it looks very close to my old GTO's Midnight Blue Metallic.

    Elkhart Blue is not that dark. Its probably Shadow Gray.



    This is the lighter Rapid Blue for comparison:
