    Try the Google's. In 1960 it was defendable. Now, not at all

    so think about how much faster the car with good aerodynamics AND a hot engine can go ?

    also a car that can run at 200MPH+ needs to stay on the ground and not overheat which are both a part of aerodynamics

    The New Corvette probably means MUCH better prices on used Corvettes... Unless, of course, if the new Corvette turns out to be a total piece of shit lemon...
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Well, that's the definition of doubling down. Trump fan?

    Yes, he said it. Of course, Colin Chapman proved him wrong, but he made some awesome engines. If you go to the Enzo museum near Modena, there is a hall of engines. Yup, just engines.

    There's too many Boomers with enough money to keep the market floating. That car was every Boomers wet dream before they had hair on their balls.

    The team that is developing both aspects at a high level are the ones winning. I don't care if you're at the regional go cart track.

    In today's racing environment, Aerodynamic development is mostly about using force as an aid in the delivery of (engine) power to the ground and cooling.

    Drag coefficient's are less of a concern and more of an attribute. Properly using air mass for lift, cooling, downforce, steering or regeneration.

    Even if Enzo said it - It's still stupid as it applies in the now.

    those that said the sun revolves around the earth were smart until they weren't. Repeating it as sacrosanct is how many times worse?
    Well, then, you should visit the museum in Maranello and set the record straight for those knucklehead Italians. Get back to us about how that works out.

    todays racing is BOOoooooo snnooooozeee rrrrrinnngggggggggggggg

    Ferrari F12 TRS? dead sexy



    and it's funny seeing people saying "engine builders are stupid" in a Corvette thread. Because GM fucking killed it with engines. There's a reason people would swap out the italian V12 for a small block chevy in the past .... lighter weight, more reliable, easier to get parts for plenty of power.

    Ha, the other TRS of that pair was in the Ferrari museum when I visited. There's a picture in the thread I posted above. Holy shit though, shiny silver? Wtf? Chrome? Formed metal?

    And yeah, muscle cars, and the Vette was always a muscle car, are engine first.

    it's the fashion.

    Non-sense. 600hp in a small car is still a winning combo. You gotta know how to drive though. Most don't.

    Sounds a lot like Enzo's last car. The man understood aerodynamics.

    Dealer markup will be insane on this car when it hits the market and idiots will pay it.

    Ehhhh. Maybe 10k over for the first few, but thatll end once Bowling Green starts sending truckloads in a couple months.

    Fixed it for you,., And those without one already will gladly pay another 20K to get the new one since it is justifiably an entirely different ride. Pretty sure 80s Vettes will be going for a song now. 90s and 00s will drop at least 20%.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Dude, these are not people who drove Vettes until about 55 years old. They retired well, or saved their dimes, and finally got the car of their teenage wet dreams. Before that they were driving wagons or pickups or SUVs. You know, family cars. Check it out the next time you see one go by. Almost always an old greybeard driving one. Young people, or even kinda young? Um, no. It's the same market that keeps Harley Davidson and Cadillac alive.

    To be honest, sometimes I check out 15-20 year old Vettes, thinking, wow, bet they're cheap to buy and maintain, but, nope, not worth the asking prices for a summer toy. Vipers are getting cheaper, though, since they don't make them anymore, and they are simple as shit to work on.

    Not when you're flirting with the price range of an affordable Porsche or BMW M. You have to remember that Vettes are chick repellents, still, after all this time. Most women I know think they're pathetic examples of an obvious problem.

    Lets just compromise and say that the Vette is a muscular sports car, but wtf is that thing? It looks like one of those pimped out TV projects that some rap star would be proud to cruise down his ghetto street, blasting shitty music. A muscle car is the Chevelle 396, Camaro Z28, or a 454 Vette. Stock.
