C7: last of a breed. There goes the neighborhood. :facepalm:

"Oh, it has 440hp"

..Really? That's it? Guess they're going to start designing the Corvette on Mustang Physics.

Fail waiting to happen IMO. Sure, it MIGHT attract overseas buyers, but to American Corvette buyers, it would then be like a tofu burger trying to convince you it's a Big Mac. The V6 stigma is going to be something they're going to have to work hard at to overcome to convince U.S. buyers, turbo or not. It's going to try to be something it's not, and that's where I'm afraid they're going to make their mistake in the U.S. Hope I'm wrong. Maybe it's better that than no Corvette at all, so we'll see.
