Maybe this will prod Ford into coming out with an affordable GT. Lol “keep dreaming Dave”
This may be that car. Don’t get me wrong it looks great. But it is a little embarrassing how
Ferrari-esque it is

I'm really not a vette guy, but whoever decided that bringing back 90's JDM style driver-centric cockpits is my hero. I love the cockpit feeling and so few cars do it like the old Supras or the new C8
+1, this is the first (modern) 'vette I want to drive. Bonus: it seems to be pi**ing off a bunch of boomers!

It's cool but I want to have nice retirement, and not spend the rest of my life working so I'll pass. I would lose my license from it anyway so what's the point.

That's the problem with cars like that. You could only push its capabilities on a race track. It would be frustrating to drive it on regular roads.
All that performance, and nowhere to use it without getting a ticket, or worse.

Sad to me....Ugly as funk with the usual Vette Bertha Big Butt GM styling, a weak engine and claims of 0-60 under 4 seconds with the Z51 means the stock $60K Vette will barely beat a stock Mustang GT. And the 710HP factory warranted GT at $50K will eat it's lunch. My wifes new GT/CS luxo Mustang will be less than a second slower to 60! This is the best GM can do? Lets see......the Camaro is finally being killed as even the Challenger outsells it and drivers prefer the Mustang plus it cannot be sold in the EU. GM can only get 1.3 HP per CI out of this LS engine.......really? If this LS 378 CI engine was built to the same level as the Coyote if would put out 576HP not 490. Hell my ST Mountune gets 2.25 and the Mustang Coyote is 1.5! So, ugly, slow and hideous interior designed by a 17 year old "ricer". I'll pass as will many others that are not GM fans. Wonder if they will even try to sell it in the EU?
