Cadillac can make a more powerful car than the Vette because Cadillacs cost more money. The GN was a problem because it costed less.
Here'e my take on the whole thing...
So long as Cadillac stays with the competition, (M, AMG, R, RS) then I could care less if it outpowers the Corvette or not. But the moment the M's, AMGs, Rs, and RSs start outpowering the Corvette and outperforming it... then I would hope GM creates a Cadillac to compete, whether or not it too outpowers and outperforms the Vette.
Seeing as the competition for STS-V has a *minimum* 450HP, then STS-V *has to have* at least 450. That will most likely outrun the current Vette.
Give the top Vette a 600 HP engine (ie - set the bar high enough) so the Cadillac Vs won't reach it any time soon. So what if the V's outperform the "lower" Vettes, so long as it doesn't top the Z06 (or whatever it will be called). That should appease Chevy and that silly rule GM has.
