    I'm surprised no one picked up on is this line from the original Automotive News article:

    If I were still at GM, what I would be pleading for now is, let's not try and take Cadillac upmarket. It has a price band of about $450 a month. That's what it's worth.

    But the Corvette brand has unlimited daylight on the upside.
    That's super sad for Cadillac. Of course, it's not universally true, but still a sad overall statement.

    Though, per GMI, everyone will be highly confused by the new V Series, perhaps touching off a zombie apocalypse. Will expanding the Corvette name to a CUV bring about the very end of the world?

    The concept is valid at ford although those that have seen and commented on the model E from Ford have said they are not that impressed with it. Thats a shame.

    The concept of a hot rod porsche macan sized full ev awd soft roader when done correctly will be a hige hit.

    Telsas model Y is from what Ive seen is a disaster on execution. Flat out ugly.

    Hopefully the ford mission E is as capable and nowhere near as ugly.

    Consider my insight to be a smaller lamborghini Urus type about the size of a macan and possibly not as lamborghini like in styling.

    The mass vehicle manufacturer that grabs hold of such a styling and performance vehicle in full ev form will be rewarded with great success as both a halo vehicle for its entire lineup and in profits..l

    Pricing should mimic standard corvette c7 pricing ..

    Beginning as the porsche macan does at around 50 or 55 grand and moving upward with a pleathora of options .

    Awd being standard of course.



    This is all just one crazy enthusiasts opinion of course.

    Porsche has utes. I rest my case.
